The new BMW M135i

The BMW M135i is the top-of-the-range version of the BMW 1 Series. This distinctively dynamic vehicle is an integral part of the new product category BMW M Performance Automobile produced by the BMW M GmbH. It is positioned between the most powerful BMW series production models and thoroughbred BMW M vehicles. BMW M Performance power units generally boast a noticeably higher performance than the previously most powerful engines of any BMW series and have M-specific characteristics in terms of suspension setting and visual appearance, though without any limitations in terms of suitability for everyday use.

M Sports package for the BMW 1 Series

As of spring 2012, the M Sports package is also available for the new BMW 1 Series, providing an especially intense driving experience. High-quality components such as the M Sports suspension lowered by 10 millimetres with tighter spring/shock absorber settings and harder anti-roll bars tangibly emphasise the active driving character of the compact BMW model, with an extended wheelbase as compared to its predecessor and a wider track width providing the perfect basis. The 17 or 18-inch M light alloy wheels in double spoke styling with mixed tyres are among the features which enhance the driving dynamics potential of the compact 5-door model. An M Sports brake is available as an additional option. It consists of aluminium multi-piston fixed calipers finished in dark blue metallic bearing the BMW M logo and 17-inch lightweight construction brake discs.

Road Test: 2011 BMW 125i Convertible

For the model year 2011, the two-door models of the BMW 1 Series got some design modifications and optimised aerodynamics. At the front, there is a restyled front apron with one large central air intake and two vertical side intakes. The central air intake is enhanced by a black trim strip and the foglamps are intagrated in the apron. Functionally the biggest innovation in the front apron is the integration of air curtains into the outer air intakes. They have the effect of considerably reducing turbulence in the area of the wheel arches by optimising airflow. At the outside edge of the side air intakes, the inflowing air is guided through closed ducts, which lead along the inside of the front apron to the two wheel arches. In each wheel arch, the air emerges from a narrow, vertically-orientated slot so that it is directed just along the sidewalls of the tyre at high speed. This optimisation of the aerodynamic results in a further reduction in emissions for the new BMW 1 Series Coupe and Convertible. For even sportier look, the M Sports Package is available for all models as an option. The BMW 135i has a modified M Aerodynamics Package as standard.
