Awesome video of a tuned-up BMW 1M

One of the most tuned up and modded BMW 1M belongs to a California resident Kirk V. who turned its “baby-M” into the ultimate M model. With the help of several sponsors, including Eibach, RevoZsport, SSR Wheels, Cobb Socal, Nitto Tires and GTHaus, Kirk adds several parts and power upgrades that most likely would bring the price by a few tens of thousands.
Here are some of the upgrades:
  • Eibach lowering springs, sway bars + spacers
  • 1M Raze CF front lip & aluminum supports, CF rear diffuser & undertray, CF side skirts, double CF bonnet, CF roof overlay
  • Non resonated Section 1 midpipes + Super Light GT (Racing Performance)
  • NT05 tires 245/35/19 275/30/19
  • Pro Dyno Tune
  • 3M CF roof, tinted taillights/headlights
  • RKP M3 GTS wing

To better showcase his car, Kirk commissioned the creation of a video which can be seen below:

2013 Geneva: Hamann M6 Mirr6r

Hamann rolls the dice one more time at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show and reveals a second, somewhat controversial BMW model. Dubbed M6 Mirr6r, the pimped out M6 stands out with its shinny armor, a chrome finish that will make jealous many of the Russian tuners.
The M6 by Hamann also stands out with its wideboy kit and an aftermarket bonnet made out of carbon fiber. The width of the car was extended by 40 mm (1.57 inches) by incorporating new side skits. At the front, a new set of aggressive air intakes were fitted to the car, while in the back a carbon-fiber rear spoiler and integrated carbon Venturi diffuser give the impression that we are looking at a track ready M6 without the power output increase.
Hamann also includes a new set of 21-inch ultra-light forged wheels with a choice of either “Edition Race” or “Unique Forged Formula” and wrapped in Vredestein Ultrac Vorti R tires to ensure top-caliber grip.
Inside we have the typical Hamann setup, with plenty of Alcantara leather and aluminum parts like the pedals and footrests.
