    BMW M1 given the green light (I think)

    I read this article on Autocar and it says BMW are releasing a 350hp 1 series in an M guise. And it is direct competition for the Audi RS3 (well if there will ever be one). What do you all think:

    would be interesting to see if they did eventually call it the "M1" since they recently did an M1 concept:

    It does look quite nice. BMW's are solid, very well made, but I just could not live with that interior, it is shambolic.

    The steering wheel on that Astra is horrid! Looks like the wheel they had on Novas back in the day..

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.
