Got a call from my dealership today. They were officially told only 600 1Ms will be made for worldwide distribution. My dealership will get two. I'm number three on the list. They also told me production will not start until ... wait ... September.
BMW was originally going to release the E82 1M Coupe as a limited edition model of approximately 2700 units. Due to positive response, the company lifted the cap and will produce as many E82 1M Coupes as they can until production ends in Spring of 2012
