Brandon's F21

Post by Brandonclifford » Tue Oct 31, 2017 8:46 pm

I thought I would start a thread for my car as there will be some big changes coming in the future

The car: 2013 BMW F21 116D M-Sport finished in estriol blue

The car was purchased on the 25th August 2016 and is my first car, from the second I see the car in the show room I have loved every minute of it and here it is the day I bought it
ImageImage

I original didn't plan on changing anything on the car but we all know how that ends up and here it is today
ImageImageImageImage

As time goes on I will keep this thread up to day with ongoing mods to the car, the current list of mods is as follows

1. Windows tinted
2. Rear spoiler
3. Front splitter
4. Black kidney grills
5. Custom royal steering wheel
6. Dark line LED rear lights
7. tinted side indicators
8. White interior LED
9. Carbon wing mirrors
10. Side skirt extensions
11. Rear diffuser extensions
12. Painted calibers
13. Brembo brake pedals
14. HEL braided brake lines
15. 125i diffuser
16. M-Performace exhaust tips
17. K&N air filter
18. M performance pedals
19. Short throw clutch stop
20. Extended storage
21. Focal audio upgrade
22. Depo headlights w/ HID
23. White fog lights
24. 313m wheels
25. 40-50mm H&R lowering springs
26. Gloss black autoid m style mirrors
27. Top mount engine strut




The list is not complete yet.......

Always good to see a new thread started by someone on the progress of their car and nice to see yours up Brandon.

Not sure if you've posted this through another means, as it is full of various forms of symbol, which appear obviously computer- based, but spoils the overall appearance of your post. I hasten to add that is in no way a criticism of your overall post, as it is very concise - just need to remove all the symbols if you can.

Only other thing you definitely need are some pics ..... always goes down well.

All the best bud ..... :P

(Edit:- You can now ignore all of the above - must have caught you in the middle of sorting it all out ..... looks good now) :headbanger: :makefun: :beerchug:

Well to start the next wave of upgrades of, I have today taken delivery of a new set of rims.

BMW 313m 19” finished in ferric grey, I was lucky to pick these up for a steal. They won’t be going on the car until next year, want to get the winter months out the way first. They will likely be wrapped in Pirelli P Zeros

*will add test fitted pictures tomorrow* Image

I got it from eBay, I think it was called a 3D style about £120. I then had it colour matched to the car and fitted it

**edit**
eBay item number: 262732370540
That looks very similar to the one I have and about the same price

Nice list of upgrades you've got there, the car looks great! Usually I hate the halogens, but on the pictures (at least) it doesn't look too bad after the mods :) I'm looking to get the same wing spoiler for myself too, completely changes the rear.

I think the other mods takes the attention away from the halogens but they won’t be there for long, all will be reviled in good time

First test fit complete, pictures aren’t the best but will be doing a second test on the weekend.

The rears are going to take a little work to get them to fit nicely, probably going to remove 4-5mm from the hub face and roll the arches slightly
