Has anyone seen the new 3/4 reveal of the 1M?

Pretty sure this is going to be my next vehicle.

If they would clean up the lines and the "face" of the car to look wayy less cutsey and feminie and actually give it some agressive ness i could respect it quite a bit more. Noone ever said all small cars have to be a cousin of Herbie, for example the lotus exige.

They haven't revealed the full face of the 1M yet...

And a 1 series with the M-sport pack is definitely not cutesy or feminine.

the 1 series look like the car form of a pug:



Does this pug look happy to you? I don't think so

I'm seriously not lying... And I hate it when I see people say that everyone blacks out their car... They think if they have seen 2 or 3 thats everyone... Out of everyone that mods their car only about 10% maybe black them out. Think about it, out of all the members on e46f how many have a blacked out car like mine? Besides me like 2 or maybe 3.

Camber shouldn't affect your tire wear as much as toe. I've seen guys running -3.5 front camber and have no issues. The problem is when you lower your car with out an alignment you affect the toe. I'm running -2.5 and have no issues. When you get it aligned have him set the toe to 0 or close to it.

Oh, alright thanks man. Yeah come to think of it I have had my springs for a really long time and I don't think I ever got an alignment. Sweet, I hope I can keep my negative camber.

i'm running 2.8 neg camber and it eats the **** outta my tires i got through at least 2 sets a year. No toe issues either. Toe will make the tread wear irregularly across the whole tire, camber will just eat up the inner side of the tire

What's your toe set at. It's not just toe, it's the combination of toe and camber together. If you run heavy - camber and toe you will have the same problem you are describing. I can't imagine that -.3 deg camber makes that much of a difference. I run -2.5, no toe, on a 200 tread wear tire and have no problems. That includes street and track driving. But when I was running -2.5 camber, stock toe, I had the same issue with eating through the inner of the tire.

I love it too, but Android is starting to wear on me. I love/miss my Palm Pre more.
