  • Exterior Color Black Sapphire Metallic

Seller Description

This 2011 BMW 1M is a modified example that has 27k miles and is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic. Power is provided by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter N54 inline-six paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, and the car has been fitted with a carbon fiber Revozport hood and trim, a Moton Club Sport coilover suspension, a Performance Friction Z-Rated big brake kit, Sparco Pro 2000 racing seats, a welded-in roll cage, a Custom Performance Engineering (cp-e) BMW n54 ?Core front-mount intercooler, cp-e BMW n54 αIntake dual-cone intake system, cp-e N54 QKspl catless downpipes, and more as outlined below. The seller has added more than 7k miles since he purchased the car in July 2015, and the most recent service was conducted in October 2018. This 1M is now being offered with service records, removed stock components, a clean Carfax report, and a Connecticut title.

The car is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic (475), and exterior carbon fiber modifications from Revozport include a vented hood, a 2-piece adjustable front splitter with integrated brake-cooling ducts, side skirts, a trunk lid and spoiler, and a rear diffuser. Front and rear tow hooks from Turner Motorsport are equipped, as are LUX H8 V5 color-adjustable Angel Eyes and iND black-painted side markers. Cracking on the carbon fiber hood is shown in the gallery below.

Forgeline GA3R 3-piece forged 18″ racing wheels are 9.5″ in width up front and 11″ out back. They are mounted with BimmerWorld 20mm spacers and a Turner Motorsport Bullet Nose wheel stud kit. Toyo R888 competition tires measure 265/35 up front and 295/30 at the rear.

The seller reports that he has used this 1M as a weekend and track car during his three years of ownership. Braking is from a Performance Friction Z-Rated big brake kit utilizing stainless steel brake lines and PFC Z31 racing brake pads.

Factory front seats have been replaced with Sparco Pro 2000 racing seats with Sparco 6-point racing harnesses and BimmerWorld billet aluminum floor mount adapters. The rear seat has been deleted in favor of a Piper Motorsport welded-in roll cage.

Other interior modifications include Revozport carbon fiber door panels, a custom short-shifter, and racing pedals from Ultimate Pedals. The digital odometer shows just over 27k miles, about 7,400 of which were added by the seller.

The twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter N54 inline-six is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. Service in October 2018 reportedly included the installation of an oil cooler thermostat delete plate from RBTurbo and a Mishimoto 25-row oil cooler and BMW M4 oil cooler that run in series. Further mechanical modifications are said to include the following:

  • Custom Performance Engineering (cp-e) BMW n54 ?Core front-mount intercooler
  • cp-e BMW n54 αIntake dual-cone intake system
  • cp-e N54 QKspl catless downpipes
  • cp-e BMW 135i/1M QuickPower mid pipes
  • cp-e BMW 1M Triton dual cat-back exhaust
  • BMS turbo double baffle oil catch can
  • A trunk-mounted methanol-injection system from Alcohol Injection Systems
  • COBB Tuning N54 Accessport V3
  • AeroCatch racing hood latches
  • Modified 2011 BMW 1M

The car utilizes a Moton Club Sport double-adjustable, remote-reservoir coilover suspension with AST racing springs, Turner Motorsport coilover mounts, and Vorshlag camber plates.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists two owners with Maryland and Connecticut registrations since new. Service records covering the last three years are included, as are the stock suspension, braking, and exhaust parts. The seller has a loan out on the car, and his lender will need to be paid off before the title can be transferred to the new owner.

Previous Listing:
Shortly after my daughter was born 11 months ago, I came to the realization that with the half cage, I won't be able to drive her around in the 1M for about 10 years. I remember hearing a great quote years ago, I don't remember who said it but it went something like this, "We never truly own a car, we just care for it for a while, then we pass it on to the next person so that they can enjoy it." So I think it is time for me to let the next person enjoy the it so that I can move on to the next project which will be more family friendly. Many of you know the car very well. It was featured at cp-e's booth at SEMA in 2011. For those of you that don't, no expense was spared in building this monster. There is well over $50K worth of hardware installed and countless hours put into the build. I have changed some things, the most prominent was removing the wrap and unveiling the beautiful paint underneath. I have also made some more upgrades and did a bunch of maintenance, including oil changes, new tires, new pads, etc. The car is turn key ready to go and do whatever you would like to do with it. cp-e custom tune - COBB N54 Accessport (V3) cp-e BMW n54 ?Core™ Front Mount Intercooler cp-e BMW n54 αIntake™ Dual Cone Intake System cp-e BMW n54 αIntake™ Dual Cone Intake System cp-e N54 QKspl™(No Cats) Downpipes cp-e BMW 135i/1M QuickPower™ Mid Pipes cp-e BMW 1M Triton Dual Cat Back Exhaust Alcohol Injection Systems trunk mounted meth-injection system Custom engine and fuel management tune RevoZport carbon fiber vented hood RevoZport carbon fiber 2-piece adjustable front splitter w integrated brake cooling ducts RevoZport carbon fiber side skirts RevoZport carbon fiber trunk RevoZport carbon fiber trunk spoiler RevoZport carbon fiber roof spoiler RevoZport carbon fiber GT race wing RevoZport carbon fiber rear racing diffuser RevoZport carbon fiber interior door panels AeroCatch racing hood latches IND blacked out side markers Piper Motorsport custom (welded-in) roll-cage and rear seat delete Moton Club Sport double adjustable remote reservoir coil-over suspension AST race springs (600/800) Turner Motorsport coil-over mounts Vorshlag camber plates Forgeline GA3R 3-piece forged racing wheels F 18x9.5 et20 R 18x11 et33 Toyo R888 DOT Competition Tires F 265/35ZR18 R 295/30ZR18 Bimmerworld 20mm spacers Bimmerworld Billet Aluminum Seat Floor Mount Adapters Turner Motorsport 12x1.5 75mm Bullet Nose Wheel Stud Kit Turner Motorsport front and rear tow hooks Performance Friction Z-Rated Big Brake Kit with Stainless Brake Lines PFC Z31 Caliper Racing Brake Pads - 11 Compound Performance Friction RH665 Racing Brake Fluid Sparco Pro2000 Racing Seats and Mounts Sparco 6-point racing harnesses OverRev custom shifter & short-shift kit Ultimate Pedals custom racing pedals LUX H8 V5 Color Adjustable Angel Eyes Custom M4 oil cooler
