Greetings, I own the ‘snot rocket’

Post by Y4SWN » Wed Jun 20, 2018 4:41 pm

Hi everyone, new to the M life, picked up an M135i from Lloyds BMW Carlise about 7 weeks ago now, absolutely love the car, judging from the title, you may or may not know which car it is.

From what I know so far, the gentlemen who baught the car orginally had it wrapped in a Matte Green, it was displayed within the showroom for god knows how long. A few people who live locally took pictures of the car (@ColinG), As seen below.
Forum topic: viewtopic.php?t=54203

Someone within the forum topic branded it as the snot rocket, hence the title and hence why I pee’d a little when I read the post, I know I own the same car because I found remains of the wrap within the mirror caps 😂, I just wanted to see if anyone else had any background on the car and he previous owner to me (a woman, supposedly).

I’ve at attached photos of what the car used to look like and how it looks now, but other than that, I can’t wait to start modifying and building an absolute killer statement on the road 👍🏻

My favourite colour was BMW Artic Metallic which I had on my E91. It changed colour depending on the light; the log book stated the colour as green but depending on the light it would appear grey/green and all colours in-between. I was really sad on purchasing my M140 on the limited colours available but opted for the Estoril Blue.

Looks so much better imho as a black car rather than the green. :wink:

Welcome aboard and good luck with it all.

They did a silver like that didn't they for the M135 or maybe im being mistaken and it was a 3 series. Was a beautiful silver that changed colour depending on the light.
