2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe in Black Sapphire Metallic over Black Boston Leather with Orange Stitching
  • Exterior Color Black Sapphire Metallic

Seller Description

This 2011 BMW 1M is one of 983 examples delivered to North American during the model’s single-year production run and is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over black Boston leather upholstery. Power is provided by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six mated to a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The car has been modified with an aftermarket intercooler and a MadDad mid-pipe, while factory equipment includes the Convenience and Premium packages, along with adaptive xenon headlights, power-adjustable heated Sport seats, staggered-width 19″ Style 359 wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, a Harmon Kardon CD stereo, and navigation. The car was sold new in Michigan and spent time in Florida and Tennessee prior to the seller’s acquisition in November 2020. This 1M has 47k miles and is offered with two key fobs, manufacturer’s literature, a Carfax report, and a clean Virginia title.

The car is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic with model-specific bumper covers, side skirts, flared fenders, mirrors, and quad exhaust outlets. Additional details include a decklid garnish, adaptive xenon headlights with washers, rain-sensing wipers, parking sensors, Comfort Access, and tinted windows. The Carfax report notes a rear-end collision with another vehicle in February 2013 that resulted in “minor damage” to the front of the car. The rear bumper is believed to have been refinished previously and a ceramic paint protective coating was applied to the exterior in February 2021. Damage is present on the lower right corner of the front bumper.

Staggered-width 19″ Style 359 wheels are mounted with 245/35 front and 275/35 rear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires that show date codes from 2012. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes with cross-drilled rotors. The brake fluid was flushed in April 2020.

The seating surfaces are upholstered in black Boston leather with orange stitching that extends to the Alcantara trimmed door panels, dashboard, and shift lever and parking brake boots. Amenities include power-adjustable heated Sport front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a Harmon Kardon CD stereo with satellite connectivity, navigation, and a removable cupholder. The driver’s side airbag recall was addressed in 2018 by Grayson BMW of Knoxville, Tennessee. The 1M-specific floormats are missing, while wear on the driver’s seat side bolster and wear on the door sill stickers are documented in the gallery below.

A leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with Motorsport stitching and an M button frames a 180-mph speedometer and an 8k-rpm tachometer. The digital odometer indicates under 47k miles, approximately 600 of which were added by the seller.

The twin-turbocharged 3.0L N54 inline-six has been modified with an aftermarket intercooler and a MadDad mid-pipe. An oil change was performed and the air filter was replaced by Grayson BMW in April 2020.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. A differential service was carried out in April 2020. Additional underside photos are available in the gallery below.

The Carfax report shows the aforementioned accident in February 2013 as well as history in Michigan, Florida, Tennessee, and Virginia through the most recent entry in November 2020. There is currently a lien on the vehicle, and the seller’s lender will need to be paid off before the title can be transferred to the new owner.
