Mineral Grey M135i Project

Post by Cwality1er » Sun Oct 23, 2016 1:36 pm

Hey, if you have been on here awhile, you probably remember me for my highly modified white 135i Coupe, but having sold that, gone through a relationship breakdown, moved house, changed jobs and much other sh*t :roll: I decided to treat myself to a new car, as it was about time to start making myself happy again. Nothing does that more than playing with cars :lol:

So anyway, I haven't had it too long, but I've made a start already. I managed to pick up an M Performance front lip kit from a kind member of this forum, which I got painted and installed last week along with the M Performance kidney grilles, M Performance side skirts and M Performance top stripes in satin black :)

I will get some better photos up at some point, but I quickly took this one of the front end the other day after the mods were fitted. I will try to keep any further mod progress in this thread so it's easy to follow.

Very nice mate not to sure on the stripes throw but as long as you like them that's all good. They do look nice in this colour :)

Thanks, I think the stripes will always be a marmite mod, but they are subtle and will suit the theme of the car. I intend on getting the rest of the M Performance kit which is all matte black, and also will be getting some 19" matte black wheels (hopefully next month) :)

It's been a while, and so I've managed to update the car a little more since last time. It now has a full M Performance kit and a set of 19" 2Forge ZF3 rims in matte black :)

If anyone is selling a set of KW coilovers, black line rear lights or MPE, let me know :mrgreen:
