Click the image above for more hi-res shots of the carbon-heavy BMW 1-Series performance parts

P. T. Barnum already answered how many people you could fit in an itty bitty car. BMW is now trying to figure out how much carbon you can fit into the same. The BMW 1-Series performance parts will keep carbon weavers in business for some time (we figure they'll be quite popular). The only sizable component not made out of carbon was the silencer, and no one will see that after it's installed. If nothing else, it could be the best and most agreeable way to raise your carbon footprint. It's a shame about that hood, though... Check out the gallery of hi-res photos below.

      Love the car... HATE the hood. But you're right geo.stewart (unless thats a reference to Geo the car, then you're wrong in so many ways) it will look better on a dark car.

      I just can't bring myself to like the looks of the 1 series. It's too swoopy. I prefer bmw's that look chunky, with some sharp edges.

      No kidding!!! That looks horrible! What were they thinking, it just doesn't work with the lines of the car.
