    Sabine Schmitz Reviews the 1M

    Sabine Schmitz might be out of Ring Taxi duty, but she can't seem to let go off BMW M models. For the German car show TURBO, Sabine reviewed the 1-series M Coupe, and if it can live up to its marketing claims.

    Even if you don't understand German you can see what a blast she had. Or, in her own words: "The 1M makes you wanna drive fast."


    The most interesting parts below translated:

    BMW claim: Athletic design
    Sabine Schmitz: "This car is very aggressive, almost ostentatious. It rather reminds me of a muscle man than of an athelete."

    BMW claim: All-out intense
    Sabine Schmitz: "The specs such as manual transmission and mechanical limited slip differential sound promising. The 1M is planted on the road, and that's what I want in a sports car. You can feel the road. The engine makes such an aggressive noise."

    BMW claim: The acceleration is breathtaking - so is the braking
    Sabine Schmitz: "It makes a lot of fun. BMW had issues with the brakes in the past, but the brakes [of the 1M] worked flawlessly."

    BMW claim: Motor Sports in its genes
    Sabine Schmitz: "The 1M makes so much fun on a race track. It's made for the turns and offers a lot of grip out of corners."

    After all, Sabine could agree with most of the surely not humble marketing slogans BMW uses for the 1M. It's just the exterior desing which was a bit over the top to her. Good to see she's still a thing for BMW.

    Nice video, but from Sabine I expected a lap around the Ring for good measure.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    I think I heard her mumble something like "Not a real M" but I couldn't quite make it out! lol

    I want to marry Sabine Schmitz and and grow old with her spending our twilight years arguing about if the 1M is a real M or not while she drifts around the pharmacy parking lot when we pick up our pills.
