The package is set to be offered to both the 1-Series Coupe and the 1-Series Convertible , and comes with a slew of exclusive and high-quality equipment details that have been designed to add more style and substance to the exterior and interior of the 1-Series.
The package will come with a choice of three colors, including a Mineral White metallic paint that obviously gives the 1-Series Coupe and Convertible models the kind of added shine that makes it stand out from the crowd.
On top of the color options, the program also includes a new set of 18-inch light-alloy wheels and an interior that has been dressed up in brown leather trim with white contrast stitching, a brown leather sports steering wheel, specially badged door sill strips, and what BMW is calling as "Fineline Stream" fine wood trim. Taken all together, the Lifestyle Edition program is really more about classing up the 1-Series than anything else.
The convertible model goes one more by adding in a brown soft top with silver pigments to give it that Twilight-vampire-like shimmer in the sunlight. Okay, maybe not that drastic, but still a cool effect nonetheless.
No word yet on how much the program will set you back, but we expect more details of it when the cars bearing the mods make their debuts at the 2013 NAIAS.
We’ll update you with all of the details as they roll out.

The new Limited Edition Lifestyle equipment package shines an even brighter spotlight on the aesthetic qualities of the BMW 1 Series Coupe and BMW 1 Series Convertible. The package’s exclusive and high-quality equipment details are carefully coordinated and add engaging flourishes to both the interior and the exterior.
As well as the exclusive Mineral White metallic paint, customers can also choose from two other exterior colours, while 18-inch light-alloy wheels accentuate the cars’ classy looks. The Lifestyle Edition contrasts are particularly effective on the BMW 1 Series Convertible; a brown soft-top with silver pigmentation generates fascinating light effects, for example. Brown leather trim with white contrast stitching plays the lead role in the interior of the Lifestyle Edition cars. A matching brown sports leather steering wheel, specially badged door sill strips and Fineline Stream fine wood trim elements add the finishing touches to the interior ambience.
