BMW 1-Series M Coupe by SchwabenFolia

Here we have now a very interesting BMW 1-Series M Coupe covered in a strange Irie Green color offered by SchwabenFolia. Let us look back for a while. The BMW 1-Series is actually a replacement for the 3-Series which was sent by the carmaker to compete in 2004. It started as a hatchback called E87. Starting with 2007, it was followed by 3-door, coupe and convertible. Three years later, the second generation showed its face and the public received it very well. In May 2010 deliveries of the BMW 1-Series M Coupe were started and anxious buyers were finally receiving their achievements. Only 6.309 units were built. This type of car, originally painted in Black Sapphire Metallic was the choice of SchwabenFolia.

The clean sheet had an approximate price of EUR2.150. Beside the color, the specialists have also provided other elements that can be purchased separately. To be more precise, we are talking about uni-glossy black roof and original shiny chrome side indicators. This last one is now foiled in black, but also the rim rings with inlays in the body color. We will also see the start button with irie green, black BMW emblems, a rear spoiler and mounted carbon-mirror caps which are all made from the same material. For the interior, the Bavarian specialists have provided 1 Series M Coupe Performance seats which are customized with orange stitching and installed by BMW. If the client wants to, the rims can be coated by universal black and offer high-gloss coating. The price for these goes up to EUR800.

Other modifications include wheel spacer on the front axle by 10 mm on each side for extra EUR90 and on the rear one by 12 mm per side for another EUR109. The chassis was optimized with the installation of a Bilstein B16 priced at EUR2.499. The list continues with a PE front spoiler covered in gloss black and priced at EUR449. The power increase to 408 horsepower will cost the customer EUR1.299.
