The BMW 1M Coupe has and is being compared with the original (E30) M3, the car that defined the boy racer! The new 1M Coupe continues this heritage. Just one look tells you this is a very special car. It is a small car with huge wheels and tires to take advantage of the power and handling that is on tap. Its extremities bristle with aerodynamic features which sole purpose is to reduce turbulence and increase downforces creating a driving machine that slips through the air and sticks to the road.

This project is limited to a few high-end performance parts – H&R suspension, BBS wheels, Brembo Big Brakes and Continental tires. These brands are a perfect fit for this one of a kind vehicle. The associations of these products are easily recognized as the best of the best. Working with these well-known tuning companies adds to the uniqueness of the BMW 1M Coupe while retaining its true character.

H&R Suspension components are known for their quality and performance. This one-of-a-kind performance coupe has no equal and H&R ride development engineers have designed the H&R Sport Springs to give this amazing car the perfect stance and performance handling. The progressive spring rate provides superb ride quality and comfort. H&R maintains its natural connection with this phenomenal car by direct involvement with BMW Motorsport. We know BMWs and our products demonstrate this.

H&R Sport Springs for the BMW 1M (e82) lower approximately 1.2 inches front and 0.6 inches rear – eliminating the huge front tire and wheel gap, for a more homogeneous appearance. Lowering your BMW with H&R Sport Springs improves handling and provides that cool H&R stance.

In addition to the H&R Sport Spring, H&R Sway Bars have been included front and rear. The new sway bars are 27mm front and 23mm rear. These awesome bars have forged ends and are made from HF wire that is heat treated and shot peened – an industry exclusive.

H&R Trak+ Wheel Spacers perfectly space the wheels and tires in fender wells, and allow for wheel clearance of the big Brembo calipers.

With the reintroduction of the classic BBS RS wheels, the new BBS Super RS wheels are the only choice for the 1M. BBS has always been synonymous with BMW Motorsports making it a natural fit for this project. The BBS Super RS wheels measure 19×9” front and 19×10” rear. These wheels are fitted with Continental ExtremeContact DW tires, size 245/35ZR19 front, 265/35ZR19 rear.

The BMW 1M Coupe has great brakes, but the with addition of Brembo GT 380mm Big Brake Kit front & rear with cross drilled rotors the stopping power of the 1M is nothing short of breathtaking. Custom Motorsport Blue Calipers with white Brembo logos really stand out behind the BBS wheels.

    actually one needs to be careful with H&R  springs.  I had 2 of them, one set on the E31 and one on the E36 and both failed to provide the performance it was purchased for.
    The E31 rear was too soft (softer then oem) and therefore caused a lot of understeer and the rear bottomed out too much. I had to install shorter bump stops and top reinforcement to avoid a subframe damage.
    E36 sport springs were too low and they kill every shock you install with them. That amount of lowering needs a shorter shocks which nobody provides, so its an ill-designed springs as well.
    If you go more then the 1.50″ lowering then you need a coil over setup otherwise no factory shocks or even the sport shocks will handle it.
    H&R makes the spring but kinda forgets the other element – how to install ?

    On the E31 the rear spring is just bad design. A heavy car that has a lot of understeer built-in already from a factory with a soft rears will handle weird. And it did. 

    so I would be waiting for users response and actual tests to see if H&R really did their R&R or just formed a spring that fits the 1M and shorter.
