What kind of clearance do you have between the front bumper and the pavement?

Official Owner's ALPINE WHITE 1M Photos

We received our 1M in May and ever since then we have been working to make it even better than what it is. We didn’t have to do the M suspension conversion or Quaife differential since M Division finally caught on to us and decided to make this car. I think we and 1addicts showed them that there is demand for a smaller M car. It’s also the same reason that M suspension components have almost tripled since we first discovered that they could be fitted to the 335i. It is great that BMW finally offers a smaller car that comes with M bits from the factory but there is still much that can be improved upon.

The stock suspension is no slouch but can be better. We addressed this area with a set of AST 4200 coilovers outfitted with Swift Springs and topped off with Vorshlag camber plates. The before and after is drastic. We significantly reduced body roll and gained back some of the numbness that the car has.

We then moved on to the brakes. We fitted a massive 380x35MM Stoptech Trophy kit on the front and a 355x35MM Stoptech Trophy kit on the rear. Once again, some people believe that stock can’t be beat or the difference is negligible, but we challenge you to drive this car with the Trophy’s and still be content with stock.

The engine is still under development. We have currently finished the preliminary stage 1 tune at GIAC with impressive results using the Stage 2 AFE sealed intake. Stage 2 will be adding a larger FMIC, and downpipes.

Lastly, we have something that we are extremely excited about. We have teamed up with SLeK to be the official distributor of their new line of carbon fiber bits for the 1M. Their first product is the lip you see in the pictures. It is extremely well made and you almost want to mount it on the wall rather than subject it to street use.

Shout out to John Zhang (1013MM) for doing the photoshoot. Check out more of his work at http://1013mm.com/blog/

Mod list (for those that don’t read paragraphs):
AST 4200’s with Swift Springs and Vorshlag Camber Plates
Stoptech Trophy Big Brake Kit (380MM 6 Piston Front/ 355 4 Piston Rear)
GIAC Stage 1 Tune
AFE Stage 2 Sealed Intake
SLeK 1M Front Lip (1x1 weave)
Other Misc things (spacers, BMW Black Grills, etc)

We picked up the wifes 1M this week.

Words fail me, so so much more impressed than i thought i would be.

I have had various M cars over the years and this one has blew me away.

I just want to drive it non stop (when i can force it away from the wife).

I dont think i will ever drive my X6 again haha.

The little one loves it


First fuel up on the way home from the dealership

Interesting that I have seen no pics of an AW 1M with the BMW Performance stripes... do they not fit, or, has no one had a burning desire to fit them?

I actually dont think i have stopped driving this week, same with the wife.

We even packed the car with 4 peoples outfits/suitcases and went to a wedding this weekend with it, I could have took my X6 but i just love the 1M and its far more fun haha.

Current milage is 2300 but there was already 1200 on the car when we picked it up this week as the car was the BMW garage MD's car before i got my hands on it but i have still done over 1000 miles since Wed this week.

Not the best quality pics as the weather was very dull.
