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 BMW 1M is one of 983 delivered to the North American market for the 2011 model year, and this example is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over black leather. Power is supplied by twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six paired with a six-speed manual transmission, and equipment includes a limited-slip differential, an aftermarket exhaust system, H&R coil springs, xenon headlights, heated front seats, automatic climate control, a Rogue Engineering short shifter, and Harman Kardon audio. The car was delivered new to BMW Portland, Oregon and remained in the state until 2020 when it was acquired by the seller who relocated it to Massachusetts. This 1M has 42k miles and is offered with removed parts, manufacturer’s literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Massachusetts title.

The car is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic and features model-specific bumper covers, side skirts, flared fenders, mirrors, and quad exhaust outlets. Additional exterior equipment includes xenon headlights with washers, black front grilles, Shadowline trim, smoked side markers, and Euro-style taillights. The seller notes that paint protection film was applied to a portion of the body. The removed grilles and lights are included in the sale.

Black-finished 19″ Style 359 wheels are mounted with 245/35 and 265/35 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. H&R coil springs have been fitted, and the removed components will accompany the car.

The cabin features seating upholstered black Boston leather with orange stitching, and Alcantara trim accents the dashboard, shift boot, and door panels. Equipment includes heated front seats, automatic climate control, a Rogue Engineering short shift kit, cruise control, Harman Kardon audio, and a factory CD stereo. The removed stock shifter is included with the car.

A multifunction steering wheel with tri-color stitching frames a 180-mph speedometer and a tachometer. The odometer indicates 42k miles, approximately 800 of which were added by the seller.

The twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter N54 inline-six was factory rated at 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, and an overboost function allowed for an additional 37 lb-ft of torque in short bursts. An oil change was last carried out in 2021.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. An aftermarket exhaust system has been fitted.

Manufacturer’s literature and two keys are included in the sale as well as a window sticker.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Oregon and Massachusetts. There is currently a lien on the car, and the seller’s lender will need to be paid off before the title can be transferred to the new owner.

Previous Listing:
I am selling my BMW 1M, one of only 739 sold for one year in the United States. Black Sapphire Metallic with a black leather/orange trim interior, only 158 were sent to the US with this Color. This car came with no navigation and no power seats, and has never been tracked. This car has been pampered since new and I have added 800 miles to it since purchasing it in 2020. This car is all there, and if you know BMW, you know exactly what this car is. For having 42k on the dial, this is a flawless example. I have had it professionally detailed every spring when it leaves the garage and every fall when it goes back in. It has not seen salt, sand, rain, or even wet roadways. It is always garaged and covered (the stock car cover AS WELL AS ALL OEM PARTS are included with the sale). Some of the highlights:

- 42,482 miles on the odometer
- Black Sapphire Metallic Paint with a 3M Clear Bra
- Black Boston Leather Interior with Black Trim/Orange Threading
- N54 twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 engine
- H&R Lowering Springs
- Rogue Short Shifter
- Clean Car Fax
- All other OEM parts (Springs, Exhaust, Shifter, Tail Lights, Marking Lights) included with sale

Serious inquiries only. If you know what this car is, you know how difficult it is for me to sell, but a change in family circumstances means I have to sell this amazing ride that will only become more difficult to find, and impossible to find in this condition.
