BMW Série 1 E81 E82 E87 E88 1M

Our page dedicated to the BMW E8x

Here you can find information about this vehicle, as well as our best selection of products for it, if you can't find what you are looking for, don't hesitate to use the search bar or the categories via the menu at the top left.

Introduced in 2004, the 1st generation of the BMW 1 Series was composed of 3 and 5 door hatchbacks (E81/E87), a coupe (E82) and a convertible (E88).

The models in the standard range received 4- or 6-cylinder in-line petrol or 4-cylinder diesel engines with power from 115 to 306 hp exclusively driving the rear wheels.

Marketed at the start of 2011 only as a coupé, the 1 Series M featured a 340 hp twin-turbo 6-cylinder 3L engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. During overboost, max torque could temporarily go from 450 up to 500 Nm. This sports car inherited the brakes, the rear suspension and the limited slip differential of the M3 E90.

These E8x underwent two facelifts: one in 2007 for hatchbacks with the introduction of EfficientDynamics technologies (new direct injection gasoline engines, start-stop system, etc.) and one in 2011 for coupes and convertibles.

Note that BMW released a Performance pack for the 135i models which added 20 hp to the 3L twin-turbo (326 hp in total) thanks to a reprogrammed engine management and which offered an additional radiator and an improved cooling circuit. They could be distinguished by firmer suspensions, optimized braking system, specific 18-inch wheels and many exterior and interior sporting elements.
