Seller Description

This 2011 BMW 1M is a Canadian-market example that is one of 983 cars delivered to North America during the model’s single-year production run. It is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0L inline-six linked with a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Finished in Alpine White over black Boston leather, the car is equipped with the Convenience and Premium packages as well as 19″ Style 359M alloy wheels, H&R wheel spacers, xenon headlights with washers, rear Park Distance Control, heated power-adjustable front sport seats, Comfort Access, navigation, a Harman Kardon surround-sound system, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The car has spent time in British Columbia, California, and Alberta through the seller’s acquisition in 2023 and now has 77k kilometers (~48k miles). This 1M is now offered at no reserve with the owner’s manual, a tool kit, two keys, service records, a Carfax report, and Alberta registration.

The car is finished in Alpine White and features model-specific bumper covers, side skirts, flared fenders, and quad exhaust outlets. Additional details include xenon headlights with washers, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming side mirrors, rear parking sensors, a trunk lip spoiler, and LED taillights. The Carfax report notes “very minor damage” to the left-rear portion of the car in a May 2013 entry, and the seller notes the rear bumper cover was refinished as a result. Paint meter readings are provided in the gallery below.

The 19″ Style 359M alloy wheels feature H&R spacers and are mounted with staggered-width Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The 1M utilizes suspension and braking components sourced from the contemporary M3 and features Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with M Dynamic Mode (MDM) as well as Dynamic Brake Control. Stopping power is from black-finished calipers over cross-drilled and ventilated rotors at each corner.

The heated power-adjustable front sport seats are upholstered in black Boston leather with orange contrast stitching, and Alcantara upholstery accents the shift boot, doors, and dashboard. Carpeted floor mats line the footwells, and interior details include Comfort Access, iDrive infotainment with navigation, a Harman Kardon surround-sound system, a CD stereo, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and dual-zone automatic climate control. A replacement left airbag assembly was installed in December 2018.

The leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a 300-km/h speedometer and a tachometer with a 7k-rpm redline as well as gauges for fuel level and oil temperature. The digital odometer indicates 77k kilometers (~48k miles), approximately 1k of which were added under current ownership.

The twin-turbocharged 3.0L N54B30 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.

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

The Carfax report shows the aforementioned May 2013 damage and lists history in British Columbia, California, and Alberta.
