Seller Description

This 2011 BMW 1M is one of 983 cars delivered to North America during the model’s single-year production run and was acquired by the seller’s father in 2013. It is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0L inline-six linked with a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential and is finished in Black Sapphire over Black Boston leather. Equipment includes the Convenience and Premium 2 packages as well as 19″ Style 359M alloy wheels, xenon headlights, 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 seller acquired the car from his father in September 2022 and now has 2,900 miles. This 1M is offered with a window sticker, owner’s manual, car cover, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

The car is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic and features model-specific bumper covers, side skirts, flared fenders, and quad exhaust outlets. Additional details include Shadowline trim, xenon headlights with washers, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming side mirrors, rear parking sensors, a trunk lip spoiler, and LED taillights. The seller notes scrapes on the underside of the front bumper as well as a blemish on the hood. Close-up photos depicting the condition of the exterior are provided in the gallery.

Silver 19″ Style 359M alloy wheels are mounted with 245/35 front and 265/35 rear Michelin Pilot Sport tires that show date codes from 2011. 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 cabin features heated front sport seats and rear bucket seats upholstered in black Boston leather with orange contrast stitching, while Alcantara upholstery accents the shift boot, doors, and dashboard. Features 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.

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 2,900 miles, approximately 200 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 over-boost 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 provided in the gallery.

The window sticker lists initial delivery to BMW of San Diego in California, as well as factory colors, equipment, and a total suggested retail price of 54,635.

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