Eurotuner recently gatecrashed the launch of BMW’s 1 Series M coupé at Willow Springs Raceway, with its Project M3, to see how it compared with the Baby M. The magazine’s machine, an E90 M3 with Competition Package, has received software tuning from GIAC as well as a titanium exhaust, H&R coilovers, six-piston Brembo front brakes and a host of weight-saving carbon goodies. As you can see, the M3 has been tuned and still was not able to catch the mighty torque of the twin turbo inline six 1M, that got to show how powerful and well built this baby M is. A full review of the M coupé’s road and track test appears in the August issue.
