Thinking of buying a 1 M coupe

Is this car basically reliable or do they have common problems like requiring a new turbo, or trouble with an autotrans? Or anything else?

If I buy one it will be my 4th BMW.

BMW shows more for the rear for a full car, 4 people gas tank and trunk. If you drive that way all the time then follow what BMW says

Pirelli interference

So why does Pirelli have to mess with the tire shapes and compounds? Again? They say to spice the show up but F1 should be about the cars and drivers and not about playing games with the tyres.

I saw that today about Ham. Who's seat is he taking at Merc.?

When Ham was new with McLaren he promised he would stay with them his whole career. So much for that.
