2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe configurator image

The BMW 1 Series M Coupe configurator is now available online at www.bmwusa.com. The 2011 1 Series M starts in the U.S. at $46, 135 and if you want a good equipped 1 Series M, you will have to get out from your pockets around $50k.

We tested out the configurator for ourselves and our Valencia Orange ($550) 1M is going to add 29
to our AmEx balance.

The $2,400 Premium Package adds Auto-dimming rearview mirror, Auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors, Lumbar support, BMW Assist with Bluetooth, Power front seats with driver seat memory, Ambiance lighting, iPod and USB adapter.
The Convenience Package will put inside your new 1 Series M Navigation system, Park Distance Control (rear only), Anti-theft alarm system, and the Comfort Access keyless entry.

The standalone options list consists of heated front seats ($500), a Harmon Kardon surround sound system ($875), satellite radio with a one-year subscription ($350), and full iPhone integration through the BMW Apps ($250) system.

Under its hood is a 335-horsepower version of the automaker’s twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder gasoline engine, while extensive suspension and wheel upgrades round out the package.



BMW says that the overboost function helps the 1 Series M Coupe hit 60 mph from a standstill in 4.7 seconds before topping out an electronically limited 155 mph. The sporty two-door will hit the quarter mile in 13.2 seconds.

As on all the other markets, BMW offers the 1M in three colors: Valencia Orange Metallic, Alpine White and Sapphire Black Metallic.
