We bring you the very first look at the upcoming F20 1-series M-sport front end on a 135i hatchback, and it’s undoubtedly the most aggressive M-sport front bumper we’ve ever seen from BMW, owing to the integration of air curtain bodywork and deeply inset air inlets to direct more airflow to the air curtains.
