In fact, each of its five MOT tests to date has had the same result, with no failures and not even a single advisory note, which is further evidence of its superb condition. The wheels are fitted with Michelin Super Sport tyres, which still have around 4mm of tread remaining
Accompanying this car is the complete and original book pack, including the stamped maintenance record, recent invoices for service work, and two keys. The first aid kit, toll roll and warning triangle are also still present.
This BMW 1M is an original and unmolested example of a critically acclaimed modern performance car, and one that has already become a cult modern classic.
