Kelleners Sport has come to market with the first full BMW 1M performance and aerodynamic program, dubbed the "KS-1S". The 1M already had plenty of show and go, but Kelleners 1M kit has put its touches on each aspect.

  • KS Power SW bumps output up to 410hp and 405lb-ft torque
  • Weight to power ratio drops from 4.4 (factory) to 3.8 kg per hp
  • Kelleners Sport rear silencers with four 83 mm tail pipes
  • Adjustable coilover kit
  • MS front spoiler lip
  • 3-piece bumper stainless steel mesh inserts
  • Racing stripes
  • White contrasting mirrors
  • 20-inch light-alloy ‘Berlin’ or ‘Hamburg’ wheels
  • Exclusive interior concept with luxurious leather trim

Press Release:

The M in the name promises much. Kelleners Sport guarantees even more. Now, with the BMW 1-Series M Coupé (Type E82), the German BMW specialists have taken the combination of high-performance engine and lightweight body to its logical automotive conclusion – power up to 410 hp, unique handling characteristics, improved aerodynamics and the high-grade interior are the distinguishing features of the KS1-S.

The high-revving inline six-cylinder engine with twin-turbochargers boosts the output of the KS Power SW 35M by a good 20 percent. Instead of the standard 340 hp (250 kW), the KS1-S produces max. 410 hp (301 kW) while max torque jumps from 450 to 550 Nm. The result is a decline in weight to power ratio from 4.4 to 3.8 kg per hp. And emphasising all this power are special Kelleners Sport rear silencers. With four 83 mm tail pipes, the stainless-steel system is optimised for unrestricted flow and distinguishes the car from the series model with a significantly more exciting exhaust sound.

The aerodynamic components of Kelleners Sport are designed to minimise wind resistance and ensure maximum down-force at high speeds. The MS front spoiler lip and the three-part MS grill insert made of electro polished stainless steel underscore the aerodynamic qualities of the car and create a supplementary visual impact. Naturally, this does not affect the BMW air curtains, which improve the aerodynamics by channelling the air stream around the front wheels. Visually, the improved agility is accentuated by decorative strips on the bonnet, roof and side sills.

The adjustable coil-over suspension system has been developed on the basis of racing experience and tuned in cooperation with eponym and racing driver Ralf Kelleners. Thus, Kelleners Sport gives the ambitious driver a wide range of options for setting the car up to suit his or her individual needs. Besides the continuously variable height adjustment, the suspension can also be adjusted independently in terms of both rebound and compression. In other words, the KS1-S can be set-up exactly to take account of the track, the tyres and the driver’s preferences.

The Kelleners Sport light-alloy wheels also contribute to the sporting characteristics and image. The extremely light, one-piece wheels reduce the unsprung weight and thus ensure dynamic handling. At the front, the 9x20-inch wheels are fitted with 245/30 high-performance tyres while the rear axle comes with 10x20-inch wheels and 265/30 tyres. With their 15 elegant spokes, the ‘Hamburg’ wheels are available in the following finishes: polished graphite-silver, polished platinum-silver and matt black. The ‘Berlin’ wheel with slender double spokes is available in platinum silver polished, matt black polished and matt black.

The work of the Kelleners Sport saddlery department, the high-grade interior concept gives the KS1-S the exclusive ambience of a luxury sports car. Top-quality perforated leather and velvety Alcantara in black and white fully cover the front and rear seats, the dashboard and the door panels. The white contrast stitching and the Kelleners Sport logo embroidered onto the head rests set elegant accents and underscore the car’s exclusive flair. The sports steering wheel is fitted with Alcantara applications. Additionally, the gear lever and hand brake boots are made of Alcantara. Rounding off the interior upgrade are high-gloss white interior trim and familiar accessories, such as aluminium pedals and a set of four foot mats made of high-grade velour with the Kelleners Sport logo.

The customised BMW 1-Series M Coupé is unequivocal evidence of the experience and expertise offered by Kelleners Sport. All work is based on a comprehensive concept for performance and handling, as well as interior and exterior style, and transforms an exclusive car into a unique and individual automobile – the Kelleners Sport KS1-S.

Not feeling the grill inserts (maybe if they were black?) or the stripes, but that spoiler is awesome. Glad to see options for the M coupe are coming quicker than they did for the 135i.

Front end = WIN

Im really liking the front splitter addition. Reminds me of a Hamann front splitter from previous generations.

Good looking kit. Don't care for the 20 inch rims. Too bling for this car.

Is this just a tune and muffler?
Or is this a full intake and full exhaust?
Because a 135 with full bolt on was making this much, think about what happens when you do fully modded!

This could really use a subtle but upgraded hood along the lines of the Z4 M hood.

And the wheels are bad...

Wheels, stripes and grill inserts are ass. Exhaust looks kind of goofy to me for some reason. Like it sticks out to far. Think about the weight you would save by getting rid of some of the nonsense. Wheels etc.

So basically (engine mod's aside) they've ruined a perfectly decent 1M.

I've got an idea, lets restrict airflow to the IC and OC with a tight weave mesh grill, put way oversized heavy wheels on it and a tune... Brilliant!

I believe the ratings are in crank and not whp, thus putting it in the same category as a standard tune only 135i.
