Has 425 PS (313 kW / 419 hp)

Best Cars and Bikes has released a new tuning package for the BMW 1-Series M Coupe.

Looking tastefully restrained, the car features an optimized ECU and a Bastuck stainless steel exhaust system. This enables the twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine to produce 425 PS (313 kW / 419 hp) - an increase of 85 PS (63 kW / 84 hp). Detailed performance specifications haven't been released, but the standard model runs from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and has an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Besides the extra oomph, the car has been equipped with a KW coilover suspension and 20-inch alloy wheels from Schmidt Revolution.

It is almost reprehensible to put the BMW 1M with its 340 series hp, although the muscle-bound dimensions of the body fit perfectly into the prey scheme. The civil version of this coupe, the available from 2004 onwards BMW 1 Series E87, exists already since 2011 as F20 in second generation. If now the "doped" 1 Series also falls into the hands of a tuner, in this case BEST Cars and Bikes in the lower Rhine region Viersen, there is sometimes a risk, that the power shoots through the roof.

A KW coil over in Variant 3 in combination with an exhaust system made by Bastuck - from cat it's certainly made of stainless steel - do unconditionally everything to improve dynamics and performance once again. The guys around Stephan WITT from BEST Cars & Bikes did not want to miss the chance to upgrade the definitely not underpowered engine using a professional software optimization to a performance enhancement of 425 hp.

But what use have so many and almost permanently retrievable powers, if the crucial link between the car and the street, namely the wheel and tire combination, can bring this power only insufficiently to the street? BEST Cars and Bikes has taken a golden handle for this BMW 1M in the seemingly inexhaustible trick-bag of the in Bad Segeberg situated firm SCHMIDT Revolution and mounted three-piece rims of the FS-Line with matt black coated stainless steel outer rims. The dimensions are 9Jx20H2 in combination with 245/30R20 tires on the front axle and 11Jx20H2 and 305/25R20 at the rear axle. If one did not know better, one might think these wheels were made exclusively for the 1M! In this case it should be mentioned, that the skeleton design of the FS line rim promotes itself with a weight reduction of about 2 kilograms per wheel!
Anyone, who feels magically attracted now and thinks that he has to climb in the blue bolide and to whizz off, is in excellent company.

'Best Cars & Bikes' sounds like the name of a warehouse in Mumbai! I like the paint, the front spoilet and those wheels would look amazing on an E36 M3.

The tune is nice. I can't say the same about the name of this tuning company though!

I love the paintjob, but I don't like the rims, and hate the fact that you can't see the trademark M quad-exhausts. Da fuq?
