Arrow BMW 1M Bears More Skin and Shape

Try as they may, BMW can't manage to conceal every last bit of the 1M Coupe. Our members have now spotted the 1M mirrors, carbon fiber diffuser/rear valence, and possibly an aggressive hood design. Scott26 also confirms a carbon fiber roof.


Mirrors, posted by Scott:




Carbon fiber rear diffuser/valence, posted by M3roar:





Possible aggressive hood vents/lines?, posted by niuniu






And there's also the previously discussed front fender vent / cutout.

Yeah, I agree. It just looks like more of that metal heat shielding to me.

From that picture, looks like they were in such a hurry, the either ripped off, or forgot to secure that left rear fender liner. Look right behind the tire.

I noticed that also. Looks pretty ugly. But I'm sure it's because this is still sort of a "prototype" to a certain extent.

according to SCOTT the hoot buldges out more rather than the flat look of the original. no hood buldge or vents like the M3.

It would be nice to have a cf rear diffuser from the factory and a cf roof like what is on the E92 M3 coupe.
