The Gambler Movie: It's NOT a BMW M1, Guys

I watched The Gambler yesterday. Good movie, excellent plot, well shot, some memorable quotes. It was cool to see Mark Wahlberg drive a (fairly rare) BMW 1M but lame to see it referred to as the M1 in the movie.

Lamar Allen, a student of English professor Jim Bennett (played by Mark Wahlberg) referred to the Valencia Orange BMW 1M as "a BMW M1". I bet the BMW nomenclature is very confusing for screenwriters and film editors but if the main character drives a car that cool, let's get its model right, OK, guys? And if you want to find out more about it and see it in action at the track, you can find out in this OneHotLap video.
