Let's see, I believe it was turbo.. Well shit, it was a 4 banger as well. M division has always been about innovation and new technology.
If you want classic and heritage, go buy a 911. I can't say that the idea of a V6 makes me super happy, but Nissan changed the new GT-R to a V6 from an I6, and now makes a car blisteringly fast.
Just like the 1M, regardless of what powers it, or what it's called, nobody is going to question it once they drive it.
I don't know about you guys, but I'm ready for 2013.
If you're gonna make shit up about one of the most iconic cars in BMW history, do it on a Scion board or something.

FYI, we're not laughing with you!
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
