German tuner Alpha-N launches their own version of the BMW 1M. The tuning shop is headed by former Brabham Racing employees, Alexander Zilliger and Markus Gutjahr, and currently focusing on development of carbon fiber parts for a wide range of automobiles.

Dubbed 1M RS, the Alpha-N upgrade features a ventilated carbon hood, front fascia add-on carbon lower spoilers, carbon roof, carbon luggage lid spoiler and a carbon rear fascia diffuser.

Under the hood, the “baby-M” gets an additional 70 hp to a total of 410 hp. The upgrade is possible thanks to a remapped ECU, new air intake and exhaust system.

    almost none of the tuners chooses to do addition cooling or additional lubrication after adding 70HP to the engine. Dinan increased the 135 and 335 HP ratings but added additional oil coolers and changed the intercooler size as well.
    I’d also add the engine oil cooler to gain an extra quart or so oil in the system and to make sure the engine oil does now boil over.
    Most of the time tuners get away with this as the cars are seldom driven hard and the engine can take that beating.
    If I’d add extra 70HP I’d make sure to use it and abuse it, so I’d add as much safety measures as possible.
