I have used my 1M as our primary family car even since my son was born 4 years ago! It's been great. That lucky squirt has never known anything else!! Lol.

The F80 M3 is a wonderful car but kids can be raised in coupes too!!
We have to have rear facing seats in Aus for kids up to 2 - coupe was extremely impractical in this scenario!
We did that too. Had no issues. Just have to buy the right child seats!
I have no doubt but Australia uniquely seems to favour a "top strap" on their car seats making the rear facing seat not only impractical but almost dangerous in a coupe... hence the e90 switch which I did not regret.
