Seller Description

This 2011 BMW 1M has 43k miles and was purchased new by the seller at BMW of Escondido in California. The car is finished in white over black leather and is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six paired with a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Factory equipment includes the Convenience and Premium packages, 19″ Style 359 wheels, xenon headlights, heated and power-adjustable front sport seats, automatic climate control, Comfort Access, navigation, and a Harman Kardon surround-sound system. Dealer-installed modifications consist of H&R lowering springs, tinted windows, and a black GPS antenna cover, mirror covers, and kidney grille surrounds. This 1M is now offered with manufacturer’s literature, a window sticker, two remote keys, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

The body is finished in Alpine White and features model-specific bumper covers, side skirts, flared fenders, and quad exhaust outlets. Additional details include xenon headlights, tinted windows, rain-sensing wipers, rear parking sensors, a trunk lip spoiler, and a black GPS antenna cover, mirror covers, and kidney grille surrounds. Carbon-fiber-look vinyl wrap has been applied to the roof and the lower sections of the front bumper cover. Flaws include a windshield chip that has been filled, scuffs on the lower edge of the front bumper cover, and a ding in the right front fender. The seller states that the rear bumper cover was deformed following a low-speed collision. Photos of the paint and trim can be viewed in the gallery below.

Staggered-width 19″ Style 359 wheels are mounted with 245/35 front and 265/35 rear Bridgestone Potenza tires. The 1M utilizes suspension and braking components sourced from the contemporary M3, and H&R lowering springs were fitted to the car upon the seller’s acquisition. The brake fluid was reportedly changed in December 2021. Curb rash is noted on the wheels.

The cabin features seating surfaces upholstered in black Boston leather with orange stitching as well as matching Alcantara accents on the dashboard, shifter boot, and door panels. Equipment includes heated and power-adjustable front sport seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, Comfort Access keyless entry, navigation, and a BMW CD stereo with a Harman Kardon surround-sound system.

The M-branded multifunction steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a 180-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 7k-rpm redline. The digital odometer indicates 43k miles, approximately 38k of which were added by the seller.

The twin-turbocharged 3.0L N54 inline-six was factory rated at 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, with an overboost function allowing for an additional 37 lb-ft of torque in short bursts. A cracked intake tube was reportedly replaced in December 2021.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and a Variable M Differential Lock. Additional underside photos are provided in the gallery.

The window sticker shows factory colors and equipment, initial delivery to BMW of Escondido, California, and a total vehicle price of $54,085.

Manufacturer’s literature is included in the sale along with two remote keys.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in California.
