Different opinions that's why customisation exists

White and blacked out looking really good from the guys of Motech
umm if you say so! personally I think that looks a right fast n furious special, plain old wrong. Blacked out kidneys, yep, the rest of it....noooooooooooooo. Just buy an AMG35 off the shelf if you like that sort of thing
But an AMG35 is shît though.

I think BMW will inevitably offer an Aero kit for the M135i like Mercedes does the A35.

Both the A35 and M135i are brilliant. The downside for some is that they look nearly identical to the lesser models in M-Sport/AMG trim. That’s where an aero pack is a strong differentiator.

Getting rid of that horrible gold/silver colour used for the detailing is a good thing in my eyes. As is ditching chrome on cars, something that Audi and Mercedes still fits to too many cars.

No, the A35 and M135i are not both "brilliant" - A35 has a crap dreadful gearbox, the M135i has one of the very best gearboxes. The M135i has a mechanical LSD in front - You need to know specifically what this does before commenting. So both cars are evidently not "brilliant".

I presume the people who say this have not driven both cars, just making bold statements as you often get on car forums

Exactly. I drove the A35 before ordering the M135i, and the differences were night and day. I personally thought the A35 was awful.

A certain Mr Harris was pretty scathing in his opinion of the A35 and he’s usually an AMG fanboy.

I’ve still not seen one in the wild, despite seeing a lot of the previous A45’s about.

This post has helped out so much, i have a white M135i xdrive on the way and these parts are what I am looking to do. Can you please tell me the part numbers for the wing Mirror caps and also the air vents on the front bumper so I can speak to my local dealer to get the parts ordered and hopefully fitted before I collect the car.
