Took my BMW 1M drag racing (2 videos)

First of all, hope everyone is safe with the current Corona Virus outbreak.

Managed to visit the drag strip last week, before the track was closed till the end of March.
I am located in Abu Dhabi, UAE and we use the F1 track here, Yas Marina Circuit which also has a dedicated drag strip.

The car was slipping in 1st and 2nd gears and sometimes 3rd even.
The best I could achieve was a 12.8 second 1/4 mile time

The car has the following mods:
ESS Tune
Akrapovic downpipes
ER Charge pipe
ER intercooler
AFE dual cone intake

Tires are Michelin Super Sport

I also did another video of the 1M, just cold start and driving.

Love this car and it always puts a smile on my face and gets thumbs up wherever you go

Enjoy your cars

In case anyone wants to know, this is the front lip I have on my car
