Click above for a high-res gallery of the ACS1 Cabrio.

In typical AC Schnitzer fashion, the German tuner wasted no time getting to work on the new BMW 1-series cabrio. Then again, it didn't take much effort to port over the work AC did for the standard 1-series coupe to its softer, drop-top sibling.

The ACS1 Cabrio package includes all the Schitzerfied exterior elements (new front bumper, rear bumper with diffuser and side skirts) and interior bits (silver carbon fiber trim, aluminum pedal and shifter, etc.) you'd expect. More importantly, AC is offering tuning packages for every model in the 1-series lineup, including the 135i, 120d and 123d. The two diesel mills get a bump in power to 200 hp and 240 hp respectively, with the 135i outputting 360 hp through the use of a revised exhaust and some ECU tweaks. Naturally, AC is offering up a plethora of wheel options, sized from 17- to 19-inches.

      I dont think that I can imagine any guy driving this car... I dont know, something about that body kit makes me think of a chick going to the beach... not that this is a bad thing, but i dont know how many customers like this are going to invest in some AC aftermarket tuneage.

        Yea... maybe as a rental... but if I were to buy one... i think that the ridicule from friends would be relentless.

      Does it come with gold chains, fake chest hair, and a glue-on, porn-star mustache?

      Now, if they could only get about 500 lbs out of that little porker.

      AC Schnitzer's rims are just fugly, IMO. The ECU mod seems nice, otherwise.... ewwww.

      Next time someone does a body kit for the 1 series...fix the damn huge headlamps first.

      Getting rid of the 'surprised look' will go miles in improving looks. A little pricey compared to new vacuum-formed ABS sill extensions, but well worth it.

      Funny the previous comments expressed such hate towards this modded 1-series. This is probably the only 1-series coupe that I've liked to look at (granted, haven't seen them in person yet).

      And no, I don't wear gold chains, fake chest hair, etc....
