    1M to 187MPH (with some other goodies)

    TVW Car Design, Crailsheim-based German tuner, is now offering a complete tuning package for new “baby-M”. According to the company, the tuning package provides tangible improvements in the longitudinal and lateral dynamics.

    With the use of several BMW Performance Parts, TVW Car Design enhances the visual aspect of the 1M, starting with a new BMW Performance carbon-fiber rear spoiler, black painted roof made out of carbon-fiber and blacked out 20 inch wheels.

    The standard exhaust system has also been replaced with another solution that produces higher acoustics, as well as more power, around 11 hp.

    TVW promises an engine output of 420 hp at 5,900 revolutions per minute with the peak torque climbing from 500 to a maximum of 620 Nm, between 1,500 and 4,500 rpm. The 1M was also baptized with a new, cool-sounding name, TVW Competition C01, which stands behind its name with a top speed of 187 mph (306 km/h).


    The increase in performance was made possible through a collaboration with Evotech, the company that provided a new intercooler with significantly greater air flow.

    engine wise? not really... thats why this figure doesnt really, or shouldnt really impress anyone. 420hp at the crank is nothing for the n54, a tune and exhaust gets you that, and what do we have here? the 1m does have m3 suspension bits though Click here to enlarge and a badass body

    Yup...tune, exhaust, BMW performance parts? Basically what everyone else is doing....Minus the 24" dubs and the go fast stickers. I do like the roof, I wonder if its painted, overlay or full replacement.

    They are running the Full downpipe Eisenmann system. I am going to have to get this from IND when I finally get my 1M.

    Looks really nice, but I think anyone can achieve this and probably for a lot less. Nothing out of the ordinary.
