The service history is as below.
We also have the car booked in with our local BMW dealer to do a full service as required, so a 2018 BMW stamp and invoice will be present.

1,416 miles – 30/11/11
16,389 – 26/11/13
19,995 – 20/10/14
23,155 – 27/10/16
2018 service to be carried out at BMW for the new owner

All booklets are present, and contained within the original wallet, along with the original spare key of course.
Very rare to find a one owner example of this limited production run vehicle, yet here we have one which has been with the original owner from new.

Body & Paintwork

Finished in Alpine White (arguably the best colour for the 1M), this example is in original paint throughout.

Having lived a pampered life, the car has never had any damage repairs, and all glass, lights, and badges are again – original.
The car has had zero modifications and is exactly as BMW intended.

All wheels are also in very good condition, with no kerb damage.

A few chips to the front of the car are present and are indicative of the mileage, with only one chip being of note, which is on the bonnet – this occurred when the car was just a few weeks old and the only owner could not bring himself to paint the bonnet so it has remained. Most people would not even notice this but we can of course have the bonnet painted if any potential buyer so wished.

Zero corrosion of course, having been kept in a indoor heated environment its entire life.
A really fantastic looking car that presents very well indeed.

Interior & Trim

With many earlier BMW’s having been criticized for the interior design, this model does well to address this, with lashing’s of leather and alcantara, along with a great equipment level.

With the low mileage and great care this car has had, the interior is in fantastic condition throughout, with all seats being without any signs of wear to the bolsters.
The gearknob, handbrake handle, steering wheel, and pedal rubbers are all in great order also.

Having a nice list of options, including the Media package – sat nav, bluetooth, usb audio.
Also tinted windows, electric & memory heated seats, electric folding mirrors, and Harmon Kardon audio (which sounds great), plus more.

The multimedia screen/system operates perfectly, and is very impressive in terms of usage.

As with this car throughout, the interior presents really nicely, and is a great place to be.

Engine

What an engine!
3.0L straight six with twin turbochargers, boasting an impressive 335bhp and 332lb ft, mated to a six speed manual gearbox with a limited slip differential and switchable traction control for good measure.

This really does deliver a fantastic drive, being placid and user friendly for general driving, just like any other ‘modern’ sportscar.
However, turn off the traction control and put the car into ‘M’ mode (press of a button) and this car really does come to life.

Superb performance is available, and this example has clearly been cherished so no unwanted flat spots, the car performs exactly as it should do through the rev range.
No smoking at all from the car, either on start up, on boost or on overrun.

With many reviews hailing this as one of the best M cars to have been produced, we can certainly relate to that opinion.

Running Gear

Of course, the running gear is all in good order.

The clutch & gearbox are an absolute pleasure to use, with lovely precise gearchanges.
The steering gives superb feedback at all times, and the brakes are fantastic.

All wheels are in very good condition, with no kerbing damage and premium Michelin Pilot Sport tyres are fitted all round.

If you know these cars, you know that they are absolutely brilliant to drive, sporting a proper limited slip differential (rather than later electronic diffs) and the chassis gives great balance and superb handling – this low mileage and well cared for example really lives up to the hype.
