2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe in Valencia Orange Metallic over Black Boston Leather with Orange Stitching
  • Exterior Color Valencia Orange Metallic

Seller Description

This 2011 BMW 1M was purchased new from Sterling BMW in Newport Beach, California and now has just under 24k miles. The car is finished in Valencia Orange Metallic over black Boston leather, and power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six paired with a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Equipment includes the Convenience and Premium packages, as well as xenon headlights, navigation, Harman Kardon audio, power-adjustable heated front seats, and cruise control. This 1M is now offered at no reserve with service records, manufacturer’s literature, accessories, a window sticker, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

The 1M features unique bumper covers and side skirts, flared fenders, M3-style side-view mirrors, and quadruple exhaust outlets. This is one of a reported 435 examples finished in Valencia Orange Metallic (B44) for the North American market, and options include xenon headlights with washers, auto-dimming mirrors, and Park Distance Control. Scratches are noted under the front bumper.

Factory 19″ Style 359 alloy wheels wear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires that show 2014 date codes. The 1M also utilizes suspension and braking components sourced from the contemporary M3, including the rear subframe.

The cabin features power-adjustable and heated front seats upholstered in black Boston leather with contrasting orange stitching. Alcantara is present on the headliner and accents the shift boot, doors, and dashboard. Additional equipment includes an in-dash navigation unit, automatic climate control, cruise control, keyless entry, Bluetooth, and a Harman Kardon audio system.

Instrumentation consists of a 180-mph speedometer, an tachometer, and gauges for oil temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates under 24k miles, all added by the seller.

The twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter N54 inline-six produced 335 horsepower and 332lb-ft of torque when new, with temporary overboost providing 369 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. An oil change was performed in July 2020.

The window sticker lists delivery to Sterling BMW of Newport Beach, California, along with factory colors, optional equipment, and a total MSRP of $54,635. Service records, owner’s manuals, two keys, and a scale model are also included in the sale.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history with a single owner in California. A walk-around video is provided below.
