Earlier this summer, BMWBLOG’s 1M attended the Midwest Big Meat 2013, a popular meet-up in the Midwest that gathers hundreds of BMW fans every year.

This year’s event has drawn a record number of cars, giving the owners a chance to showcase their latest mods or in many cases, stock models.

Our BMW 1M in Valencia Orange joined the event as well. The “baby-M” now sports a new mod, the Vorsteiner 1M bodykit which includes a carbon fiber front spoiler and carbon fiber rear diffuser.

Back in June, the folks over at IND and renowned exhaust manufacturer Eisenmann gave our 1M a “new sound.” The popular and high-seller Eisenmann Race Exhaust System has replaced the stock exhaust.

Along with the sound upgrade came a power output increase. The 1M tune from ESS Tuning gave a significant boost to the 1M. The ESS E-FlashFlash N54 “is/1M” ECU offers normal whp range on DynoJet of 345-365whp, which translated in our case to around 400 horsepower.

Next on our list a new set of wheels to complement the overall look of the car.

Let’s have a look at the photo gallery.
