BMW 1-Series M Sport Package
The BMW M Sports package for the new BMW 1 Series further enhances the dynamic driving properties of this compact five-door model as well as translating them into a striking look.
M Sports package for the new BMW 1 Series five-door model: enhancing chassis and aerodynamics as well as body and interior design.
Thanks to its classic rear-wheel drive, state-of-the-art 4-cylinder engines and hallmark brand proportions, the new version of the compact five-door model is truly impressive with its sporty driving dynamics, unique handling qualities and innovative elegance. From spring 2012, the M Sports package is now also available for the new BMW 1 Series, providing an especially intense driving experience. High-quality components such as the M Sports suspension lowered by 10 millimeters with tighter spring/shock absorber settings and harder anti-roll bars tangibly emphasize the active driving character of this BMW, with an extended wheelbase as compared to the predecessor model and a wider track width providing the perfect basis. An M Sports brake is optionally available as an exclusive feature with the M Sports package, except for the models BMW 125i and 125d. It consists of aluminium multi-piston fixed calipers finished in dark blue metallic bearing the BMW M logo and 17-inch lightweight construction brake discs. This further enhances the driving dynamics potential of the compact five-door model. Another such feature is the 17 or 18-inch M light alloy wheels in double spoke styling with mixed tires.
In addition to the M aerodynamic package with numerous body components for the front, side and rear sections and the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line, the exterior paint finish in Estoril Blue 2 metallic optionally available exclusively with the M Sports package ensures an unmistakably sporty look.
Inside the vehicle, components such as aluminium door sill cover strips with M emblem, M leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons, M footrest and M gearshift lever help go together to create a sporty, elegant feel. The driver and front passenger sit on sports seats available exclusively for the M Sports package in Hexagon Anthracite fabric/Alcantara with contrast stitching in Royal Blue. Furthermore, the driver has the use of a sports-style instrument panel with red accentuations and chrono scaling. The M Sports package is rounded off with interior strips in the equally exclusive Aluminium Hexagon finish with accentuation strip either in Estoril Blue matt or high-gloss Black and an anthracite-colored BMW Individual roof liner.
