    1M coupe values & potential appreciation

    As a Z8 owner who has realized a nice appreciation on the value of my car. I recently started looking at 2011 1M coupes. Less than 1000 imported and made only 1 year. I have noticed now that many with some mileage (30K +) have asking prices that exceed the MSRP. Does any forum member own one? What are your impressions of this car? Any comment as to whether the options add or detract from value? Do you think that it will become more valuable in say the next 5-10 years? Love this forum and the many knowledgeable members. any response would be appreciated.

    I drove one at a BMW press day at Laguna Seca a few years back, and honestly far preferred the V8 M3. It has much better overall handling, its engine and chassis work really well together making it a much more enjoyable package to drive quickly. It's a far better all round sports car and if you get one of the rare special edition variants I'd say that one has more appreciation potential, and will be more pleasurable to drive as you're waiting for it to appreciate.

    2000 Red over black
    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car

    Do be cautious as 1Ms are a track car favorite!

    I'd still take an M3 over it, but really I'd love a GT3 RS over both!
