BMW 1 Series M140i Shadow Edition Review

The BMW 1 Series M140i Shadow Edition is a beast of a car but what makes it so special and stand apart from the standard 1 Series? Read on to find out…

The BMW 1 Series is a great small car that is versatile enough for a young professional or a small family. With great MPG return in a real-world setting and not too expensive to run, it’s a brilliant all rounder but if you want to take it to the next level, this is a model worth exploring.

Let’s start with what will catch your eye, dark grey wheels, a black framed grille, dark headlight surrounds and tinted rear lights. There’s a reason they call this the shadow edition and its easy to see why. This model also comes with rear parking sensors, cruise control and an upgraded stereo which are all reasonable and useful additions.

Packed with a turbo-charged 3.0 litre six-cylinder engine, you will hear this car roar while delivering effortless performance. You can get this model with either a manual or automatic gear box and you’ll reach a top speed of 155MPH.

If speed is what you’re after, you’ll be pleased to know you can reach 0-62MPH in an impressive 4.6 seconds. As practical as it is sporty, the boot capacity is 360 litres so there’s plenty of room for weekend adventures and if you need a little more space, pop the seats down for 1200 litres. A five-door, five-seater car, it’s roomy enough for three people to comfortably sit in the back.
