BMW Australia has introduced High-line editions of its 1 Series and 3 Series coupe and convertible models, enhancing the specification and value of its small- and mid-sized two-door line-ups.

Fifty 1 Series coupes and convertibles will be offered – 25 of each body style – adding up to $4000 of value with a number of interior and exterior upgrades.

Available in either Mineral White, Space Grey and Black Sapphire paint, the 1 Series models score unique 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome line exterior highlights, white/chrome kidney grille slats, dark chrome exhaust outlets, and a silver-brown soft-top roof for the convertible.

The interior features ‘Tabasco’ Boston leather upholstery with Platinum contrast stitching across the seats and steering wheel, fineline stream trim, ‘Edition’ designation on the doorsill trim and an anthracite roofliner in the coupe.

The 1 Series High-line limited edition models are further enhanced by the standard inclusion of the Innovations package, which adds the Business navigation system and bi-xenon headlights with high-beam assist.

Meanwhile, there will be no cap on the number of 3 Series High-line models available, with the enhanced package now part of the mid-sized coupe and convertible line-up.

The High-line specification adds between $10,000 and $15,000 in interior and exterior upgrades across the range.

The 320d High-line is the big winner, adding new 18-inch alloy wheels, front parking sensors (adding to the already standard rear sensors), anti-dazzle rear-view and side mirrors, automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, electric seats with memory function, Professional Navigation system and harmon/kardon surround sound system.

The 325i High-line matches the specification of the 320d and upgrades to 19-inch alloys, while the 335i High-line comes standard with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddles and metallic paint.

All 3 Series High-line convertible models are also fitted with a wind deflector as standard.

Both High-line ranges will be available from March production.
