I'm on edexcel and needs to make the decision for what I take next year. This year I've done C1&2 and S1 and prefer S1 by a mile. What do you think is better/easier, M1 or D1?

I find d1 easier, but people who take physics tend to find m1 easier ☺️

D1 easier. Althought M1 may be easier for you if you do physics

Ive taken both D1 an M1. D1 is probably the easiest module out there but it can be quite boring as it is so easy

I found M1 easier
Last year, I got C for M1 and D for D1
Didn't finish the paper for D1- it was so long
with M1, I reckon I could've gotten a B if I revised. But D1 sucks the life out of you.

Like you, I also prefered S1 and got A* for that module (and A* for C1&2)
Is there not any way that you could possibly take S2 instead and next year do S3.
I wish I had done that now

D1 is easier, but harder to learn as revising it is so dull that it makes you question your life choices.

I think you would be better off doing M1. It may well help you if you do Physics, but there are 4 people in my Double Maths class that are doing better than me and they don't do Physics!
M1 is much more mathematical and pure than D1. Most of D1 is boring as hell, and there are so many methods to algorithms that you have to learn. It's lucky you have a choice! I don't - but thank God I'm not doing D2 next year!

I would say M1 is harder as a module. D1 is very easy but you'll be pushed for time in the exam and one mistake can mean a lot of marks lost, and the grade boundaries tend to be pretty high for Decision. Mechanics is more of a "pure module" as others have said and generally preferred by universities but it doesn't matter. Also D2 is significantly harder than D1, and slightly more dull I'd say. So keep that in mind too . Can't talk about M2 as I haven't done it, but apparently if you can crack M1 then M2 isn't too bad.
