BMW 1 Series E87 3dr. | BMW 1 Series E82 Coupé | BMW 1 Series E88 Convertible

The BMW 1 Series, codename E87, was introduced in 2004 and came as a replacement for the E46 3 Series Compact. The 1 Series is the first BMW range to be launched in opposition to the VW Golf but it is a rather premium alternative.  Although the smallest car in the current BMW range, the E87 maintains the tradition of rear-wheel drive, longitudinally-mounted engine, and develops the sculpted look of all recent BMW designs. It is the only rear wheel drive in its class.

It shares many components with the E90 3 Series. These include MacPherson struts in the front of the car, and a trapezoidal-link rear axle. BMW has stated that it shares over 60% of components with the current BMW 3 Series E90.

The 1 Series is built in Regensburg, Germany, with some of the engines coming from the Hams Hall plant in Birmingham, England. 4 and 6 cylinder models are available.

Early 2007 BMW’s designers have refreshed the interior and exterior styling of the five-door model. The 1 Series now features a larger kidney grille for improved airflow to the engine. The lower front spoiler has also been redesigned to create a larger air intake, while the spoiler protrudes further for a more pronounced, sporting look. The headlamp cluster remains the same size but a darker cover gives a subtle, more distinguished front end.

At the rear a restyled bumper gives the impression of a wider, lower car. The rear lamp cluster now features a new arrangement of lights, but retains its original shape.

Convertible and coupé versions of the 1 Series are now in the final stage of testing and will complete the E87’s range in the months to follow.
