The BMW 1 Series Coupé turns open roads into exciting concert venues. Subwoofers form the basis of the exceptional sound while the HiFi loudspeaker system enhances this sound with eight speakers. And for the ultimate sound experiences choose the optional Harman Kardon Surround Sound System with additional high-end technology. Using the AUX port, you can connect external devices such as MP3 players to all HiFi systems. Three BMW radios, a CD changer and an MD player complete the entertainment options.
How do you navigate through a library of 10,000 songs? Thanks to the optional USB/audio connection in the BMW 1 Series Coupé, you can integrate your entire music library into the vehicle on-board system. Audio files, menus and folder structures of most standard MP3 players, USB sticks, iPods and mobile phones are displayed on the screen of the BMW navigation system or the BMW Professional radio. The device can be controlled using the keys on the multifunction steering wheel, the iDrive Controller or the BMW Professional radio controls. A protective pocket for digital devices is integrated in the armrest.
The standard climate control system (optional for the BMW 120d) creates a pleasant cabin temperature whatever the season. And for even more cabin comfort, the optional automatic climate control system with Automatic Air Recirculation includes microfilters, condensation and sunlight sensors and a fast-heating feature, to quickly create a comfortable cabin temperature and to keep it constant. The driver and front-seat passenger can select their preferred temperature individually.
Combining outstanding materials with excellent craftsmanship: the standard seats for the driver and front passenger in the BMW 1 Series Coupé offer manual seat height adjustment (electric seat adjustment is optional) and can be effortlessly adjusted to suit practically any seating position. And if you require sporting style, the optional Sport seats provide optimum lateral support, thanks to highly contoured seat sides. Seat height, backrest angle, seat angle, forward/backward position and thigh support for driver and front passenger are all electrically adjustable, ensuring the Sport seats deliver ideal individual support.
With its compact form (369 mm diameter), the standard Sport leather steering wheel (optional for the BMW 120d), comprising a shift lever knob with chrome trim and handbrake lever handle in leather, provides precise control and a comfortable grip. If desired, the steering wheel can also be fitted with multifunction controls which operate the radio, CD player and optional telephone, plus two programmable keys. And for those cold, winter mornings, the optional steering wheel heating quickly warms up the steering wheel rim at the touch of a button.
Putting motorsport gear shifts at your fingertips: simply push the paddle to the left to change down or to the right to change up. The optional shift paddles* available for the six- or seven-speed automatic transmissions provide even fast gear shifts without you ever needing to take your hands off the wheel.
*Available as an option for the BMW 125i and 123d as well as the BMW 135i with seven-speed Sport automatic transmission.
The optional lights package ensures that the front of the cabin is automatically illuminated for 20 seconds once you unlock the doors, giving you the time to take your seat comfortably. As soon as a door is opened, footwell lights are activated to optimally guide passengers to their seats. The lights package also includes reading lights situated in the front and rear of the vehicle and two lit make-up mirrors.
Everything has its place, especially in the BMW 1 Series Coupé. The optional storage package comprises nets for passengers on the front-seat backrests and additional storage above the instrument panel.

A cupholder in the central console, a 12-volt power outlet and a roof handle on the driver's side complete the package.
The range of upholsteries available for the BMW 1 Series Coupé, for example the Leather Boston* option, accentuates the stylish appeal and superior quality of the interior.
