It looks like an anorexic version of a nice car, like comparing a pit-bull to an ugly chihuahua.

I'd be down for it too, but this car doesn't appear to be it, or should I say it appears to be but isn't

I'm thinking that BMW should not even call this an M1 since it'll never be as great as the orginal M1.

Damn, that is one mean looking test mule. Im really excited for the M version of the 1, its going to be a great car. That will definitely be my entry to the M line.

I actually would like a Dual-tip center exhaust like the old 80's 5 series. 2 massive 90mm, rolled edge tips. I know it won't happen, and it's no longer feasible with car dimensions. But, would be nice.

Otherwise I agree, quad tails. Dual split like the 335i looks naked for some reason. And dual tip/single muffler....no.

I think the quad tips would look too cluttered on the back of the 1. The only kind of split exhaust that would look good in my opinion would be dual singles like on the 335i. But a single dual tip muffler with large tips would look fine too.
