Talking .BMWPaul's Alpine White M-Sport with Black 19" VMR Wheels

Hi all,

This baby's just over a year old, bought it last summer to replace my 1.2L Renault Clio

NB: Apologies for the rain drops on the lens which ruined the quality of the pics , I had just washed the car and it was very sunny indeed until I began taking photos then it started to drizzle. Didn't want to waste the opportunity

































And just a couple of pics messed around on Photoshop...




Let me know what you think please.

Thanks for looking

Paul

I've got a 116i (115hp), the model before yours, and I want to buy the BMWP Exhaust. Is the difference noticeable? (Will it be the same for the e87 from '07 as for the e87 '10?)
Thanks!

I believe the BMWP Exhaust is only for those with a 2.0 litre petrol engine. But I'd ask your local BMW garage just to confirm it.

In regards to a noticeable difference, only slightly in power when the exhaust was fitted, after that it's feels normal. However, the noise is definitely louder and can seem a bit annoying initially, but I've gotten used to it now

I really like the look of 19" rims. And no unfortunately, I'm still a student and my insurance is still sky high.
