2004 BMW M3  [4.00]
Thumbs up H&R BMW 1M Coupe Debuting at SEMA

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
H&R Springs 2011 BMW 1M Coupe 2011 BMW 1M Coupe

The BMW 1M Coupe has and is being compared with the original (E30) M3, the car that defined the boy racer! The new 1M Coupe continues this heritage. Just one look tells you this is a very special car. It is a small car with huge wheels and tires to take advantage of the power and handling that is on tap. Its extremities bristle with aerodynamic features which sole purpose is to reduce turbulence and increase downforces creating a driving machine that slips through the air and sticks to the road.

This project is limited to a few high-end performance parts – H&R suspension, BBS wheels, Brembo Big Brakes and Continental tires. These brands are a perfect fit for this one of a kind vehicle. The associations of these products are easily recognized as the best of the best. Working with these well-known tuning companies adds to the uniqueness of the BMW 1M Coupe while retaining its true character.

H&R Suspension components are known for their quality and performance. This one-of-a-kind performance coupe has no equal and H&R ride development engineers have designed the H&R Sport Springs to give this amazing car the perfect stance and performance handling. The progressive spring rate provides superb ride quality and comfort. H&R maintains its natural connection with this phenomenal car by direct involvement with BMW Motorsport. We know BMWs and our products demonstrate this.

H&R Sport Springs for the BMW 1M (e82) lower approximately 1.2 inches front and 0.6 inches rear - eliminating the huge front tire and wheel gap, for a more homogeneous appearance. Lowering your BMW with H&R Sport Springs improves handling and provides that cool H&R stance.

In addition to the H&R Sport Spring, H&R Sway Bars have been included front and rear. The new sway bars are 27mm front and 23mm rear. These awesome bars have forged ends and are made from HF wire that is heat treated and shot peened – an industry exclusive.

H&R Trak+ Wheel Spacers perfectly space the wheels and tires in fender wells, and allow for wheel clearance of the big Brembo calipers.

With the reintroduction of the classic BBS RS wheels, the new BBS Super RS wheels are the only choice for the 1M. BBS has always been synonymous with BMW Motorsports making it a natural fit for this project. The BBS Super RS wheels measure 19x9” front and 19x10” rear. These wheels are fitted with Continental ExtremeContact DW tires, size 245/35ZR19 front, 265/35ZR19 rear.

The BMW 1M Coupe has great brakes, but the with addition of Brembo GT 380mm Big Brake Kit front & rear with cross drilled rotors the stopping power of the 1M is nothing short of breathtaking. Custom Motorsport Blue Calipers with white Brembo logos really stand out behind the BBS wheels.

Inside the WeatherTech® FloorLinerTMDigitalFit®accurately and completely lines the interior carpet giving “absolute interior protectionTM”! Digital laser measurements of interior surfaces offer a consistently perfect fit! A patent pending High-Density Tri-Extruded (HDTE) material allows for a rigid core for strength while offering surface friction to the carpet, as well as tactile feel to the surface! They look good and the keep 1M Coupes interior like carpet looking brand new.

Ok, I find those wheels to be ridiculously beautiful. Am I just showing my age or are they? The epitomize every boyhood fantasy for me. In the 80s the classic BBS basket weave was THE wheel of choice. From the 635csi that a guy down the street had to the 930 slant nose a ball player in town drove. The baddest cars all had BBS wheels.

I can't image how good these new ones would look on BSM 1m. So, its it just my boyhood fantasies coming to the surface or do others agree?

The drop with the shortened springs looks really nice too.

I think they look rather good on it, but I'd hate to be the one to clean them. I had no idea that they even made a BBS like that in 19".

I agree with you man...


But I am going to try the springs first, as I am still in love with the stock 1M wheels.

Oh no, you can't actually drive the car with those wheels. Well maybe if you could afford a full time wheel cleaner lil person but even then it would be a serious challange to keep them clean

You are so on target with this and let's not forget the badass race cars with the gold BBS ///

Don't think these would be for me on a VO but I agree they would be "kickin" on a BSM ..... I will be getting the springs though .... drop looks good!

How's about a nice clean BSM 1M with tint and these BBS wheels in gold?

I will take a look. I just want to make sure the quality is good. I have seen vinyl ones that look good online but like crap in person.

I don't know if it's the white, but it doesn't look good to me. As an owner of an E30 M3 with those style wheels, they look off on the 1M, and it looks like the lip is stretched out beyond the tire, just waiting to be rashed up. I agree the front of the 1M needs a drop, but the rear is already low, I can't imagine going a half inch lower, and I don't associate Conti's with "best in the world" tires....

The side ///M stripe also seems to draw attention to the sagging beltline, which is the feature I hate the most about the 1 series.

Those wheels are not suited for the car whatsoever. The wheels are too busy for a curvy car like that. Bbs Rs are for boxy cars like the E30. Not a fan of this car but I'm sure the handling is kickass

No offense to anyone but those wheels look hideous at best. The whole project looks like modern day supermodel wearing converse shoes from the 80's.

Right. I prefer these on the 1M.

I agree with you. I like those style wheels, but I don't care for the way the lip protrudes beyond the tire. If the lip didn't protrude, I would be very interested in these wheels.

While I don't agree with you, your statement gave me a good chuckle. Too funny.

Isn't it an engineering no-no to lower the suspension unequally on the front and back?
