"WHY DID YOU TURN?!"
On two occasions in the past week I've had brow furrowing moments where someone made reference to a "real M car." The most recent being the comments on Chris Harris' comparison of the M6 GrandCoupe, E63, and Jaguar XFR-S where someone said "Finally maybe people will respect the M5/6 as real M cars." ...this raises a…

Ain't no fruit sweeter than a forbidden one. Just ask Eve. Fans in the United States get a plethora of BMW 1 Sseries products, including a convertible and the delightful 1M Coupe.

BMW will expand their lineup with a new line of cars slotted between their normal models and their M brand cars. The special lineup will feature turbocharged diesel engines and be predominantly four-wheel-drive. I think you can figure out what rival carmaker BMW has in its sights.
