The 2500+ enthusiasts who bought and love their 1M's vehemently disagree with you.

I, personally, find the 1M to be more fun than the E9x M3 in all situations. In day to day street driving, there is no comparison.

I suspect that the M division managed to dial-in some of the 1M fun factor into the upcoming halo cars.

After all, as Oz and others have pointed out, the 1M was the Proof Of Concept for the new Turbo-M cars (yes, I know the X cars had blown engines but let's recognize them for the prudent business decisions they were)
The 1 series M is the most badass, coolest, sickest BMW to debut since the 1988 M3. The E30 M3 finally has a successor. Please welcome the stupidly fast, wickedly tempered, awkwardly named, possibly perfect little son of a benchmark - Automobile Magazine, August 2011
