First BMW 1M interior pictures, 7k redline, limited slip differential

Here are some more pictures of the 1-series M, including the first interior shots. This is still the prototype, so it's subject to changes, but so for we have M3 seats, M3 steering wheel and different gauges (not sure if the two-tone dials are here to stay). Fuel cutoff appears to be at 7,000 rpm. Contrary to some reports, you can also see a proper LSD.

Looks like it has an E46 M3 style muffler.

Southlight, are you thinking that protrusion on the undercarriage might be the "proper LSD"? Does it appear the same on the e9x M3's?

Also.. would you happen to have high enough resolution to see the tire sizes? I'm guessing 245/35/19F and 275/30/19R fitment, from the looks of those Pilot Sport 2's...

I noted that also.

If they chose to do a cosmetic quad, that'd be the most efficient way. Pretty sure that'd be the lightest option.

There are some serious cars in that garage. Is the silver convertible a 250 Ferrari?

The fronts clearly say 245/35/19, although I'd guess the backs are 265s.

The "protrusion" is the cooling fin for the LSD.

You have far far better eyes than I have then, to "clearly" see the tire size. I'm running a quality 24" monitor, and can't make that out, even zoomed in. Other markings are clear, but not tire size.

I knew that may be a diff cooling fin, like on the E36/4 M Coupe & Roadster, but was asking if it was the same on the E9x M3. Thanks though!


Edit: I take it back, the fronts are clear 245/35/19.. I was thinking another area was the tire size, that I just couldn't make out. Rears appear to have smudges around XXX/35/ ZR19...

That's an emergency switch off found in all prototypes.

Yes, I think so. I made this picture some time ago, and it appears to be the same on the E9x M3's:

The 1M's running M3 spec wheels, i.e. 245/35/19F and 265/35/19R.

I don't see a boost gauge on the instrument cluster. I was hoping to see that in a turbo ///M.

Agreed. Important for tracking a car IMHO.

They can make it an electronic gauge through the Nav display

Replacing the fuel gauge with a boost gauge would be a nice idea. The fuel indicator could be digitally displayed between the two main instruments :-)
