Bmw M1 will come with an impressive personalization program

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

BMW M1 fans are all giddy at the thought of the personalization options that will be offered when it hits the market. But before that, the M1 will debut in concept form at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

According to Scott26, a source who talked to Oft-reliable 1addicts, these options will include a series of carbon fiber exterior pieces.

These options are the following: a lightweight front splitter, hood, side-skirts, side-mirror caps, rear diffuser, and trunk with spoiler. You may have already seen a few of these on the BMW tii concept during the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show.

There could also be 18-inch competition wheels. Three matte paint colors (black, gray, and white) are available.

Glossier colors like Techno Violet and the pallette will also be offered. Several racing stripe choices will be available and the customer can decide where to put those stripes.

A chrome-line exterior is also being offered. For its interior, customers can opt for full leather seats and leather with M tri-color patterned Alcantara. Alcantara can also be used for the headliner.

In addition, the M color pattern can be emblazoned on the door panels or race stripes. Dash panels can be fashioned out of aluminum or carbon fiber, with door handles and gearshift details in either body color or titanium.

These customizable options suggest that BMW is intent on pushing for the production-ready version of the M1, which is speculated to go on sale in 2011.
