Our friends at 1addicts just posted a few photos from the 1M sneak peak BMW gave last week that not only give us a great view of the car, but allow us to look inside for the first time. A few things to note inside:

– If the RPM gauge is correct, expect a 7,000 rpm for the twin turbo inline six (the 135i is 6,800)
– Speaking of dials, they ‘re two-tone, grey and similar to previous M3s
– M3 Seats! (or very very similar)
– What looks like a E46 ZHP shift knob
– One button on the steering wheel is covered in tape – we believe this is the “M ” button and allows for the tailoring of the driving dynamics similar to the M3

On the exterior we can see:

– A real LSD (specifically this is the M3 differential)
– M3 brakes (as opposed to the 6 piston variety on the 135i)
– Quad exhaust similar in shape to the E46 M3
– Wheels (on this prototype) are a full 19 ”
– Tires seem to be taken straight from the M3; 245/35/19F and 265/35/19R
