Hi everyone.
Hasser here from the isle of man.
Had a m235i since may last year.

Traded in a activehybrid F10 5 series for it.

Shame to sell the 5er, but the F22 is good enough. Just not the same interior quality IMO.

It's a 2014 with 16000 miles now.

Just a quick hello to all. I've just picked up 65 plate M135i and so far I'm extremely impressed. Coming from a Golf R it feels much more refined yet much more use able power delivery. It well spec'd, performance exhaust, adaptive suspension, sunroof, harman Kardon, reverse camera, heated seats to name a few.

Promised myself no mods as it's still under warranty yet was so impressed with the jb1 fitted to my golf R I've already been hovering over the buy button

After originally looking to move to a 135i from a 650i years ago, had various cars including an e87 120d and as of last week finally got my dream sensible car, 2013 M135i AW, very very well optioned and loving it!

Full software update next week and have some plans for the car.

Hi

Newbie here.

On the hunt for My first BMW. Looking for a 135i. Love the shape and engines. Done some homework on common issues.

Fun starts now to find a decent example for the right money.

Anthony from Southampton.

Mainly driven VW in the past 17 years but have also had Mercedes, Renault and Subaru. Sold my 2016 Golf GTD daily driver couple of days ago and replaced it with a late 2016 125D Auto.

During my VW days i was very much into the retrofit scene, mainly on the Mk5 platform and used to earn beer tokens installing and coding stuff.

In a professional capacity i'm a Project Manager for a Telecoms Infrastructure provider building new towers and managing national role out programmes for Three and EE. Well, i've got to fund my car and Gin habit somehow!
125D M Sport auto - With additional stuff.

*stands up*

Good morning everyone. My name is Ian, and I'm an N52 addict.

I bought my E81 130i last September and save for a corroded AC pipe (and sticky rear caliper) it's been faultless. Love the noise of that straight six which I've experienced before through ownership of a MKIV Toyota Supra, it's just so addictive!

Plans are to refurbish the wheels soon and some minor niggles by way of the damaged aerial base and dodgy radio LCD which fades after use (heat related I assume and pretty common it seems).

Other than that, just tidy it up with some tlc to paintwork and keep on top of servicing (gearbox, diff etc).

You've been a help already guys and will no doubt be further down the line.

Cheers

Ian ImageImage

Morning all,

I'm Stuart, from a small town near Elgin in the North-East of Scotland.

Currently on the lookout for a 1er, not particularly set on any individual model, just looking for a weekend toy really. Will be driven maybe 3-4k miles per annum. Any advice would be great as my last weekend toy (Mazda Rx-8 231) ended up being a bit of a lemon, so not looking to rush into anything.

Have been enjoying browsing the forum over the past few days, the members car section in particular! :jawdrop:

Evening, I’m Dan!

Owned by E82 135i for almost a month now, been looking for the right one for sometime. This arrived into a local dealer and I snapped it up before it got advertised.

My 1st BMW, although I’ve wanted one since I passed 15 years ago. Doesn’t help my parents have owned nothing but BMW’s since about 1995/96.

Previous cars...
Vauxhall Corsa (modified as my first car)
Audi TT (mk1)
VW Golf (mk4) downgrade to buy a house
Audi A3
Now... BMW 135i

Looking forward to becoming more active on the forum!

Hi to all on the forum.
Just bought a 2005 120d charcoal grey,103k miler for my OH,needed a 5 door for growing numbers of grandkids.
Mrs has never had a BMW before, shes had an old Mini,couple of Corsas,Focus and most recently Pug 206 GTI.
We picked up the car on Saturday, she absolutely loves driving it.

Just got the 5e20 fault code to sort and hopefully have many years of happy driving( if she doesn't get caught speeding first).

Hi all,

Tom here 24 from E.Sussex and currently in the final stages of purchasing of a mineral grey m135i pre lci. I work at a BMW Main dealer and this is my first branching out into a BMW. Car history has been a bit random thus far couple of fiesta's, a mk1 focus rs, and then a mk2 focus st (all modified) and currently a vw golf which is dull as dishwater.
For the time being I will just detail the car as the paintwork needs some saving and then I will start looking into modding the car i.e mapping exhausts springs and interior carbon and such!
