  • Exterior Color Valencia Orange Metallic

Seller Description

This 2011 BMW 1M was purchased new at Leith BMW of Raleigh, North Carolina by the seller, a longtime BMWCCA member. The car now shows just under 5k miles and is finished in Valencia Orange over black Boston leather with orange stitching. Power is provided by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter N54 inline-six coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission. Factory equipment includes the Premium Package, Convenience Package, navigation, and Harman Kardon surround sound. This 1M is now offered for sale at no reserve with service records, the factory manuals, a clean Carfax report, and a clean North Carolina title in the seller’s name.

Valencia Orange paint is shown up close in the gallery along with detailed photos of the lenses and trim. Factory equipment includes xenon headlamps, Shadowline exterior trim, headlight washers, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The car is said to have been garage kept from new, and the recent Carfax report is free of accidents or other damage.

The 1M features flared fenders, a quad-exit exhaust system, M3-style sideview mirrors, and unique bumpers and side skirts compared to the standard 1-Series. The 19” split-spoke alloy wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires that measure 245/35 up front and 265/35 out back. The factory braking system features ventilated and cross-drilled rotors all around, as well as M-tuned ABS with Dynamic Brake Control.

Black Boston leather seats feature deviated orange stitching, and Alcantara trim accents the dash, instrument cluster hood, door panels, emergency brake, and shifter boot. The car is optioned with the Premium Package, which includes auto-dimming mirrors, power front seats, and hands-free Bluetooth and USB.

Additional amenities include Harman Kardon surround sound, Park Distance Control, an alarm system, and navigation. Under 5k miles are shown on the digital odometer, the majority of which were reportedly added during the seller’s first three years of ownership.

The twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter N54 inline-six was factory-rated at 335 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 370 lb-ft of torque at 1,500 rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox and a factory limited-slip differential. Service records include dealership invoices as well as annual state inspection certificates. An oil change was performed less than 300 miles ago in July 2015, and airbag and battery cable recalls have been addressed per the seller.

A photo of the underside is viewable above.

The original window sticker lists the optional equipment and a total suggested retail price of $53,785.

The recent Carfax report shows no issues and lists one owner in North Carolina through its most recent entry in August 2018.
