Evening all! Little update on my 130i...

Picked up a near-mint M Sport Coupe front bumper yesterday ready to be fitted (already Titan silver with pdc and headlamp jets too!) and some okay condition 216Ms that I’ll get powder coated dark grey. Got the 135i exhaust sitting in the garage too! Time to get to work I think...

Can you get some pics up when it’s done? I fancy doing something to mine at the front end, I don’t know if I can get the performance bumper now though so the coupe one is an option for me, I’ve also got the same alloys so it’ll maybe help with the visuals.
Oh the forum will be flooded with pics when done! Hoping to get the front bumper done this weekend, painting the grilles black tomorrow night.

Sounds like you're doing all the right things!

I've just sold my old Black E87 bumper that I bought for my last 130i that got binned.

I have some black BMW performance grilles that I put on my last 130i as it was black. Not 100% sure how they'll look on my current 1er though as it's Le Mans blue... anyone with a Le Mans Blue 1er got any thoughts?

The coupe bumper looks ace on the hatch.

I think black grilles look good on any colour! Had black ones on my Le Mans Blue E92

Wondering on what it's worth question again!


My commute has changed to three miles a day and a young baby means it's not getting used at weekends so I'm going to sell, probably regret it as it took ages to find.

Link to thread when i got it, its better now than it was then
https://babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=79328

130i Auto
2009 "09" think its a June car
62k
Sun roof
really good spec, 7.5k of options
FSH and had oil changes in between as two years is too long
Discs and pads all round about 2k ago – calipers and disc centres nicely painted
arch liners have been down cleaned behind and waxoiled
Suspension components waxoiled annually whilst I’ve had it so mint underneath
Tyres nearly new (non run flat 255 rear 225 front)
The paint has been detailed regularly and is basically swirl free
Seats always been kept up to
BMWP back box
BMWP air filter
Uprated Xenon bulbs
I'll get an ad up shortly with a load of pics

Thanks for any input

I presume you've seen the 2 (130i autos) that are currently on Autotrader? Looks like you're in direct competition with those 2 I'd say they give you your best indication on where to start price wise. They've been on there a while now in fact there were 3 but the higher miler + the cheapest one disappeared a few weeks ago .... I know cos I've been watching lol!

I was musing with putting mine on the market + going for an m-lite but definitely not now if yours is up there as 4 autos for sale is really flooding the market so I'll wait

Its not cheap to advertise on Autotrader if you really need to sell now then your price needs to look enticing vis a vis the competiion + I'd be preparted to pay for 6 weeks to try the price, be prepared to drop it a bit + be preparared to sit it out ... good luck with it

Just got my Coupe front bumper on with my 216Ms!

Plan is in the summer to tidy up with front fogs and coupe arch liners, plus give the wheels a dark grey refurb!

What do you think?

Been waiting for this. :D

It looks great! My favourite wheels too!

Only thing I would say, the gap between the kidneys and the bonnet seems a bit bigger than it is on mine.
It might be the fact that yours is silver and mines carbon black I’m not sure.

I think I read from the how to threads that there’s a bit of adjustment in the top screws across the upper panel of the bumper under the bonnet.
Loosening then off and shoving the bumper back before tightening again might just finish the install off?

Either way, as I said; it looks mint!

There was a project of another 130i where the owner had fitted a coupe bumper(amongst other things) - looks really good tbh but it’s one of the last things I wants to do to mine really.

Here’s the thread for it on PH!

The full story is he went to drop an S54 engine in, then. ended up parting it out

Cheers man! I love it! The wheels really finish it off.

I’ll give the bumper lift a go when I get it back off again for fogs and proper arch liners Image
