2012 Bmw 1-Series Coupe/Convertible Edition Sport unleashed

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 15, 2012

The athleticism of the BMW 1 Series Coupé and the BMW 1 Series Convertible is further enhanced with the Edition Sport. Aside from the M Sports chassis, the equipments used for the interior and exterior aid in making the driving experience much more intense.

Vehicles that have the M aerodynamic package are given further emphasis visually with an exclusive Carbon Black metallic paint finish as well as a set of 17 and 18-inch M light alloy wheels in double spoke design. Its unique look is supported by window cavity covers in BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line (or alternatively Chrome Line Exterior).

In addition, its exterior mirrors get a black finish. A hint of sportiness comes from the longitudinal kidney grille bars in high-gloss black, rear lights in Blackline Design and chrome exhaust covers. As proof this limited edition’s exclusivity, the vehicle is fitted with the M leather steering wheel (includes multifunction), stainless steel pedals and the M footrest in aluminum, as well as sports seats.

Embossed soft nappa leather is used for the finishing of the M gearshift lever and handbrake handle including gaiter. The Edition Sport also comes with seat covers and door trim in the fabric/Sensatec combination Flashpoint Black with blue contrast stitching, aluminum glacier silver interior strips, plus matching floor mats with blue welt. Buyers may opt for its seat covers and trim to be in black Boston leather trim.

The 2012 BMW 1-Series Coupe is designed to exude distinctive sportiness with its robustly potent body that carries the marque’s characteristic design elements. The cabin featuring the distinguishing "Hofmeister kink" is moved to the rear, thereby proportionally lengthening the hood for a more agile appearance. The body bears a conspicuous shoulder line and is shaped with short overhangs, a long wheelbase and large frameless doors. It is a new rendition of the trademark BMW design. An M Aerodynamic Kit is standard on the 135i Coupe.

From the back, the 1-Series still looks intimidating. The shortness of the rear segment is emphasised by specific design elements such as the integrated spoiler on the boot lid. The 135i also has a lip spoiler that augments rear end downforce at high speeds. The internal segmental components of the L-shaped taillights provide the 1-Series Coupe with a lower and more dynamic look.

The horizontally oriented taillight cluster elements create an effect of homogenous illumination. When Adaptive Xenon headlights, which are standard on the 135i, are specified for other 1-Series models, LEDs make up the taillight horizontal elements.

This light configuration, also seen on other BMW lines, provides the car with a distinctively recognisable night time look. The Adaptive Brake Lights are another trademark BMW safety feature seen on the 1-Series Coupe. These lights have a two-stage operation related to the degree of brake force.

Standard Adaptive Xenon headlamps, which are only optional on the 128i, feature integrated Cornering Lights for greater safety during night driving. The daytime running lights operate as two corona rings per headlight unit, as expected in a BMW. This improves the car’s perceptibility especially in “murky” circumstances.
