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
