This 1M is now offered with service records, factory manuals, window sticker, a promotional rendering, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name.
The 1M features flared fenders, a quad-exit exhaust system, M3-style side mirrors, and unique bumpers and side skirts compared with the standard 1-Series.
