Adaptive M suspension.
The optional Adaptive M suspension allows the sports tuning of the
BMW 1 Series 3-door to be increased as required without compromising
Lowering the chassis by 10 mm produces increased agility. Using the driving
experience switch, the driver can also choose between a setting geared towards
sports character and one with an emphasis on comfort.

absorber valves in the Adaptive M suspension according to the driving situation
and road profile. This takes place for each wheel individually so that optimum
road holding is guaranteed at all times.
