The AC Schnitzer 1M Coupe has debuted at the Frankfurt IAA.

The ACS 1M tuning program includes aerodynamic, performance, and handling ugprades. The 1M's power has been bumped up to 400hp (from 340hp) with an ECU software tune.

Cosmetic upgrades include a carbon fiber front lip spoiler, metal lower grille, vented hood, extra side fender gill, rear roof spoiler, carbon fiber rear trunk spoiler lip, and carbon fiber rear bumper diffuser.

The factory 1M exhaust has been replaced by a Schnitzer exhaust system with twin silencers. Factory suspension is replaced by a adjustable racing suspension and the brakes have been upgraded as well - 380x35mm brake discs with 6 piston calipers in front, and 355x32mm discs with 4 piston calipers in rear. Other braking components such as the brake pads and caliper mounting brackets also receive upgrades.

Interior includes a 3 spoke performance steering wheel covered in alcantara, valencia orange trim pieces, AC Schnitzer shift knob, parking brake handle, and i-drive controller, Schnitzer pedals, and racing bucket seats. They have also added a digital display for showing the current gear.

Here is a previous look into AC Schnitzer's studio and 1M design process - http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=564748

Really shiny.

This looks to be a clear downgrade over stock. No class imo.

I thought AC Schintzer would never be able to out do the job they did on the Mitsubishi AC3000GTSport but clearly they had another trick up their sleeve.
Way to go AC!

Like the side skirts, steering wheel, rims (oem rims still better though) and the fact that they took the effort to go all out.

Yet they crossed too many less-is-more boundaries: I'm all for color repetition in the interior, but this is fugly. Fi a bit more interior alu would be better, both for esthetics and durability. And what's up with that 2nd faux side turn marker and the caged lower air intake ?

That SUCKS! What the hell were they thinking. You ever designs for ACS is on crack. They used to do really cool stuff too.

Last good car ACS ever did was the E36.

on a scale of 1 to 10 ( 10 being real nice )

Front lip 9 nice piece..
metal front grille 2 goes against bmw grille ... to thick
side skirts 7 nice agressive angle
wheels 0 i never ever like acs's wheels
hood vents 0 to darth vadar ricer again
side vents 6 nice subtle touch
i drive knob 0 kinda novel idea though
orange trim inside 0 freakin screaming ricer
exhaust 10 love the double semi circles
diffuser 10 nice... fits exhaust well
rear roof spoiler 3 maybe .. but its a signature schnitzer piece
seat 7 recovered recaros but why not button tuck ???
steering wheel 7 they went overboard with the grip angles
power upgrade 10 all power is good ..


HOW MUCH .....

I wonder if this will be BMW approved? In the past, I know that some of the AC Schnitzer stuff has been but I'm not sure it still is, given the BMW Performance range.

If it is BMW approved, then I'll take the remap only

I think the AC seats look awesome! I was trying to point out that the seats are not 'low-rider' style at all. I know you get it.

The seats are just Recaro Sportster CS which are the same as the BMW Performance Seats.

I like the ACS seats except for the diamond pattern. Wrong car for it.
