2009 135i  [4.50]
I took the punt and ordered a set of VRSF down pipes. Got them for under $400 inc shipping to Melbourne. From ordering to receiving them took 2.5 weeks.

When I got tyres a fortnight ago from Tyrepower Hawthorn, they recommended Active Motorwerke in Clayton, as their head specialist "Jin", used to work for BMW & was renouned as being one of the best. They are a BMW & Mini specialist, doing servicing, mechanic repair, upgrades etc.

I got the VRSF DP's installed by Active Motorwerke today. I rang Steven to set up a time yesterday, and they managed to fit me in for today.

They fit RHD 135i's fine! A little more adjusting the rest of the exhaust etc, but when all bolted together, there was no issue with clearance.

In my opinion, for just under $400 fully shipped, the VRSF DP's are awesome value.

Anyone in Melbourne I strongly recommend Steven & Jin from Active Motorwerke in Clayton (www.activemotorwerke.com.au). The guys really knew their stuff & were fantastic to deal with - I'll be using them again that's for sure.

I was also informed by Tiago that VRSF are going to bring out a slightly modified version for the RHD market. I don't know when, or what's actually different, but I can say for certain that the current ones fit!!!!!

AR Design DP's = $895 inc Aus delivery inc GST from BMR
VRSF DP's = $400 including shipping

Both fit 135's!
