Good news for local fans of the BMW 1 Series M CoupÃ© with confirmation the first few customer cars have arrived in the country. Deliveries should commence in the next couple of weeks.
Limited production and build spots mean the ongoing delivery of the 100 or so models coming to Australia will be more of a trickle, rather than an avalanche. That said, it’s great to see the 1M finally on local soil.
The bad news is, after this initial run of 1M models has been delivered, that’s it. There will be no more. At least, with production of the 1M ending in December, it’s unlikely the Australian market will be able to secure any more cars due to high overseas demand.
There is growing speculation that BMW might make a 1M convertible, but it remains to be seen if that does go ahead, and if so, whether BMW Australia could get their hands on some.
