BMW 1M Coupe KW Clubsport and Full Supersprint Exhaust modifications

BMW 1M Suspension and Exhaust

BMW 1M BSM
Recaro CS Sportster Seats
Ferodo DS2500 (Going to do Big Brake Kit - not sure yet - suggestions)
KW Clubsport Suspension
Supersprint Full Exhaust System
Evolve Remap
Pirelli Corsa Tyres

Whats happening: The car is going for 2 days at the Nurburgring (Stag do and car in standard spec) before going to KW for the Clubsports and then onto Italy for Supersprint to make a complete exhaust for me and then finally back to the Nurburgring for testing and a conclusion on the parts. I own a M3 with DCT as well which has been modified which goes to the ring, so it will be good to compare.

My 1M has got the Pirelli Corsa tyres on with uprated pads (Ferodo DS2500) and has just had the Recaro Sportster CS seats put in. The car performed not very well around the ring the suspension was far too soft for track it rolled too much and didnt feel planted like a track car should, so the KW Clubsport should make a massive difference (Hopefully) to anyone taking it on track. This car has massive potential but needs to be tweeked to make the car it should be. If its your daily car the suspension is perfect with a good balance. The engine was amazing with plenty of power, third gear is awesome.

Conclusion after 28 laps at the ring fantastic car but there is more potential for the track boys, suspension, brakes and tyres would improve the car dramatically. My friend uses 18inch wheel and the Dunlop Dirreza tyres and the things just hangs on (unbelievable) so have ordered the rims which will fit both cars. Now looking forward to going to the factory to have the kit installed and see the difference.

Glad Im taking the car to the KW factory for the fitting The guys thats are fitting the kit are the motorsport division who set up the cars for the Nurburgring 24 hour races, which they have 72 teams to look after at the next 24hour race I think Im in safe hands.

Factory is just WOW what a set up its out in a little village in Germany I thought I was lost but the factory is state of the art and huge. They have a R&D department, which I was blown away with, they go through so much detail to get the kits sorted and the culture in the building is great, they have a gym that works on a card that store your body details and then automatically works out the training for you to work out at the maximum (ie. If its too easy the machines understand this and increase the weight mental!!!!)

The car has been fitted now with KW Club Sport and one of the technicians came and asked me a load of questions to make sure they set the car up for me my spec was that I wanted was a nurburgring set up, one that could take the bumps well and take the corners, without the car taking a bit of time to settle into each position I guess this is in between track and road (More bias for the track without it being too harsh) Ill be testing the car on the drive to Italy

The car looks awesome just the right height filling the arches better we put a space on the front end just to have a bit more clearance (5mm) but Im going to go to 10mm and have the wheel centralizing lip (Hope that makes sense to everyone).

Before I left they took me on a factory tour I can believe how much details goes into every damper one of the ladies there (checking by hand the tiny spring that goes in the valve for the high speed damping) and if it not to there tolerance (very small) she has to put washer on to balance it out so its perfect.

Just want to say thanks to the guys at KW, firstly because they treated me like part of the family and have done an awesome job. It was brilliant.

First drive and impressions in the 1M it has made a huge improvement the car feels more planted, there is no real difference from a comfort point of view. It doesnt crash at all but this might be because of the high speed damping (Not sure thats right just a guess). Drove half way in the wet and going around some of the bends it just stuck to the road with no pitching over it just kept flat. Can wait to get this on the ring now it should be brilliant.

On my way to Supersprint - arrive at supersprint and dropped the car off. Before I went to the airport it did a dyno run before the mods it made 355bhp so was very impressed with that. Can wait to see the results they are doing the complete system so should be good. You can see there progress on face book - will take around 2 weeks.

I'll take the car back to the ring on the return journey and post another review on what it's like.

will upload more pic...

At some point in the near future, when more UK owners have taken delivery, we should arrange a UK meet!

Well, I think you will be looking at about 405-415 with Evolve.

Yeah, let me know, I will definitely try to make it. Good excuse to get back on there dyno myself anyway.

Tech Tec in Germany made 450bhp and 630 Nm - mental - how driveable will that be? I thought the third gear was amazing around the ring, so much pulling power

I know they have changed the spring rate compared to the M3 kit - but not sure to what

I have heard that the KW Clubsport kit is the same on out of a non EDC E90 M3 where as shock valving has stayed the same and with a slight change of the spring rates. The E9X uses a 500/800 setup, but based on the fact that suspension geometry is virtually unchanged in the 1m I would guess that the motion ratio is somewhat similar so the new rates couldnt be far off.

For a big brake kit the only one I would consider is the StopTech trophy kit

Look forward to updates especially on the Supersprint setup. Had a full Supersprint exhaust on my M5 and quality, sound, craftsmanship, looks are 10 out of 10! Great to hear they will be rolling out products for the 1///M.

Yeah, I agree. I had the SS on my E36, really liked it. I am surprised at how many tuners have shown interest in the 1M, given the limited production of the vehicle. I had a hard time getting aftermarket parts for my Z4 Mcoupe fir that reason.

I am very pleasantly surprised and thrilled about it as well! I really thought given the limited run most tuners would not find it worthwhile, but I guess some of the big names will do it out of reputational reasons as well, not just purely economic. Way to go!
