Aachen-based German tuner AC Schnitzer unveils their program for the BMW 1 Series M Coupe. Focusing primarily on visual enhancements, AC Schnitzer previews some of their parts on a Valencia Orange and Sapphire Black 1Ms.

First goal was weight reduction and the 1M now features a lighter brake system and ventilated brake discs. The high performance brake system which ensures stable deceleration even under extended use and extreme heat, and – although generously dimensioned – saves a clear 4 kg weight.

The AC Schnitzer High Performance Brake System for the front and rear axle, consist of:

  • 6-piston fixed caliper, front
  • 4-piston fixed caliper, rear
  • slotted, internally vented brake discs (front 380 x 35 mm, rear 355 x 32 mm)
  • brake pads
  • caliper mounting brackets
  • brake pipes

    Saw this in topgear’s video :) Nice car. Looks elegant and sporty at the same time. Only thing that BMW produces cars that looks almost alike all the time.

    Just dropping by from Car Mods and Performance Tips
