Sold my AE86 to buy an M135i.. Pics!

Post by PazzaAE86 » Thu Oct 05, 2017 6:13 pm

Hi guys, new here and hoping to buy an M135i soon. Very soon. Haha!

Anyway, thought I would throw a few pics of my old car up for anyone interested.. I used this car for drifting and track days, I've been using AE86s as my fun car for the last 17 years, and my self and a couple of other guys were the first to partake and hold drift events in the UK circa 2001.. So they hold a special place int heart and I was sad to see it go.. But it's time to get back behind the wheel of a decent BMW! (E36 M3 was my last)..

Welcome mate, what a stunning AE86 8) 8) 8) 8)

Good luck in getting a M135i - great machines :)
'13 M135i standard.. and will remain so.. I promise... really.. will not modify... or abuse on track..
'91 R32 GTR... basically standard and unmolested... 497 @ rear hubs... never raced nor rallied : https://youtu.be/jhsX0elVG2k

Gees, the steering on the 86 looks like it's got a turning dot instead of a circle! :o

What do you think of the GT86/brz?

Thanks for the kind words guys. I will certainly miss it! But i have another rusty C -Reg KE70 Corolla Estate for my next project, its currently stripped to bare shell ready for welding.. lots of welding.

I'm naturally a big fan of the GT86/BRZ due to the ethos of the car, and would love to own one, a very involving drive.. The main problem though is the M135i itself! They have always had a similar price point to the GT86/BRZ and the M135i is better in basically every way bar maybe driving feel/feedback.. Not to mention the rather massive performance difference. I find track driving in slower cars quite frustrating if i'm honest.

Cheers

This dude wrote the UK book on AE86's, an actual legend of the Corolla Brotherhood. I reckon he wont look back though, theres a lot to be said for progress and technology ;)
