Despite being the runt of the BMW family, the 1 Series has actually had a good run ever since it debuted back in 2004. It’s actually in the sixth year of its second generation and yet, the 1 Series remains an integral part of BMW’s overall lineup. Ahead of the refreshed 2018 1 Series’ release, BMW is giving fans of the model an opportunity to get more than just a standard-issue 1 Series with three special edition models that provide aesthetic and aerodynamic upgrades to the compact sedan. All three special edition models share the “Shadow” nomenclature, but each version is different in its own unique way. Friends and folks, these are the BMW 1 Series Shadow Special Editions.
