Full History


       espite being born in a digital age and equipped with the many digital tools our modern and busy lives demand, the 1M retains that true analogue feel that the old school motoring enthusiast still craves. BMW fully succeeded in delivering this. Simplicity was the key. Rear wheel, drive, front engine, proper manual gearbox with a clutch and plenty of German horses under the bonnet.

We live in an era of hands free dialling, touch screen controls and flappy paddles. The 1M with its 6 speed manual gearbox is a joy for the true petrol head who loves real driving rather than switching to auto pilot.

Long term Motorsport owners and enthusiasts were highly cynical of a turbo charged M car, however once behind the wheel the purist’s doubts quickly dissolved. This breathed on N54T engine delivered 335 bhp and when full throttle settings are used in conjunction with all 6 gear ratios,  the 1M becomes a perfectly balanced true hooligan’s delight.  Twin staged turbo charging gives a staggering torque figure of 500 Nm, which means this Jekyll and Hyde engine will pull itself along at 1100rpm with the ability of being both docile and mind bending. Suspension is kept simple, with no EDC offered as an option. Incredible grip through the 19” rims and staggered 245 front and 265 rear tyres give the 1M go cart style handling. The knowledge you are driving one of only 450 cars produced adds to that very special feeling.

This 1M was built on the 13th September 2011 and first registered 30th September by the first and only owner.  Supplied by our local dealer, Chandlers BMW to one of our very long-term customers and friends.  The car
has been garaged from new alongside his 996 GT3 and small collection of race cars. The service history is 100% complete and all with the supplying dealer. The car has never wanted for anything. It has been a tricky decision for our customer to sell his 1M. He  has always told me it is the best all round car he had ever owned but, like all us car nuts, we crave change and want to try try new things. This 1M will be sorely missed but the delivery of a new
M2 CS has helped with the pain.

The condition of the car is stunning throughout as you would expect from a one owner car with such low mileage. It has all original panels and all original paint. The condition of this 1M ensures that it would only compliment the very best of car collections.

The car will be delivered to the new owner with all original keys and a truly splendid history file. All original manuals, handbooks and stamped service book. The document file has every invoice from new and even the
original purchase invoice for the car is neatly filed away.

Prior to handover to the lucky new owner, this 1M will pass through our workshop for its very thorough full sales inspection, PDI, new front tyres, road test and a new MOT. As part of our sales preparation, the bodyshell will be properly protected and future proofed with clear cavity wax to ensure long term preservation which will give peace of mind to the new owner that this car is 100% up to date with preventive maintenance.

Please call Barney for full details of this exceptionally low mileage, one owner 1M.
