AC Schnitzer gives the BMW 1-Series M Coupe a visual and handling tuning, but does not offer any power increases under the hood.
AC Schnitzer (we love saying that name) has unveiled their latest tuning program for the BMW 1-Series M Coupe. The new package focuses primarily on visual enhancements. The German tuners first goal was to reduce the weight of the 1M Coupe and has done so with a lighter brake system and ventilated brake discs. The new high performance brake system ensures stable deceleration even under extended use and extreme heat.
The total weight reduction is only a mere 9lbs, but the weight loss adds for better control of the vehicle. There's also a new sport-tuned suspension included in the package. The interior features a leather gear shift cover, an illuminated gear knob, unique floor mates, an aluminum cover for the i-Drive system controller, and aluminum pedals, handbrake handle and foot rest. Nothing has been altered under the hood thus far, but that could change before the package is ready to go on sale. No official date for release has been set.
