Seller Description

This 2011 BMW 1M has 18k miles and is one of 983 cars delivered to North America during the model’s single-year production run, and it was purchased new by the seller at Wide World BMW of Spring Valley, New York. 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 Valencia Orange Metallic over black Boston leather upholstery, it has 19″ Style 359M alloy wheels, adaptive xenon headlights with washers, black-finished kidney grilles, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler and mirror caps, manually adjustable front sport seats, a CD stereo, and dual-zone automatic climate control. This 1M is now offered with service records, two keys, a battery tender, a car cover, spare parts, a Carfax report, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.

This example is one of 435 cars finished in Valencia Orange Metallic (B44) for the North American market, and features model-specific bumper covers, side skirts, flared fenders, and quad exhaust outlets. Additional details include adaptive xenon headlights with washers, rain-sensing wipers, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler and mirror caps, black-finished kidney grilles, and LED taillights. The rear bumper cover is scuffed, and damage to the front is noted in a January 2014 entry of the Carfax report, which also lists damage to the front and rear in November 2021. The seller states the hood, front bumper cover, and left-front fender have received bodywork, and photos of the damage prior to the repair are provided toward the end of the gallery.

Black-finished 19″ Style 359M alloy wheels are mounted with 245/35 front and 265/35 rear Michelin tires showing 2013, 2019, and 2020 date codes. 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 cross-drilled and ventilated rotors at each corner. A brake fluid flush was performed in May 2023.

The manually adjustable front sport seats are upholstered in black Boston leather with orange contrast stitching, and Alcantara upholstery accents the shift boot, doors, and dashboard. M-branded floor mats line the footwells, and additional appointments include a Sirius XM-capable BMW Professional CD stereo, push-button ignition, cruise control, and dual-zone automatic climate

The leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a 180-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 7k-rpm redline as well as gauges for fuel level and oil temperature. The digital odometer indicates 18k miles, all 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. An oil change was performed and the high pressure fuel pump was replaced in May 2023.

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 below.

Service records, two keys, a battery tender, a car cover, and spare parts are included in the sale.

The Carfax report shows the aforementioned 2014 and 2021 damage and lists history in New York and Florida.
