Photoshoot of HP Autowerks 1M and Updates *Too Much Good Stuff*

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
We received our 1M in May and ever since then we have been working to make it even better than what it is. We didn’t have to do the M suspension conversion or Quaife differential since M Division finally caught on to us and decided to make this car. I think we and 1addicts showed them that there is demand for a smaller M car. It’s also the same reason that M suspension components have almost tripled since we first discovered that they could be fitted to the 335i. It is great that BMW finally offers a smaller car that comes with M bits from the factory but there is still much that can be improved upon.

The stock suspension is no slouch but can be better. We addressed this area with a set of AST 4200 coilovers outfitted with Swift Springs and topped off with Vorshlag camber plates. The before and after is drastic. We significantly reduced body roll and picked up even more responsiveness and road feedback than the car already had off of the showroom floor.

We then moved on to the brakes. We fitted a massive 380x35MM Stoptech Trophy kit on the front and a 355x35MM Stoptech Trophy kit on the rear. Once again, some people believe that stock can’t be beat or the difference is negligible, but we challenge you to drive this car with the Trophy’s and still be content with stock.

The engine is still under development. We have currently finished the preliminary stage 1 tune at GIAC with impressive results using the Stage 2 AFE sealed intake. Stage 2 will be adding a larger FMIC, and downpipes.

Lastly, we have something that we are extremely excited about. We have teamed up with SLeK to be the official distributor of their new line of carbon fiber bits for the 1M. Their first product is the lip you see in the pictures. It is extremely well made and you almost want to mount it on the wall rather than subject it to street use.

Shout out to John Zhang (1013MM) for doing the photoshoot. Check out more of his work at http://1013mm.com/blog/

Mod list (for those that don’t read paragraphs):
AST 4200’s with Swift Springs and Vorshlag Camber Plates
Stoptech Trophy Big Brake Kit (380MM 6 Piston Front/ 355 4 Piston Rear)
GIAC Stage 1 Tune
AFE Stage 2 Sealed Intake
SLeK 1M Front Lip (1x1 weave)
Other Misc things (spacers, BMW Black Grills, etc)

Agree, especially if it can be used to cool the front rotors.

OTOH, the thought of bashing that beautiful --and presumbably pricey -- carbon fiber is upsetting. As Dan Parker suggested, would be nice if it could also be produced in plastic or fiberglass.

Will the stock brakes fit a 135? Are they an upgrade over the stock 135 brakes?
