Sounds good. Keep me posted. I know there are a slew of people wanting to get this done with the 1M, however the only 1 available is Seibon and that has some fitment issues.

For those that have been waiting for a trunk, I was just told that Harold @ HP Autowerks would receive a 1x1 double sided trunk and 2x2 single sided this week. I think he is also doing 10% off & and free shipping on these 2 trunks as an intro price so send him a PM/email.

No diffuser just yet. I'm hoping after they finish a few projects, a more aggressive diffuser would be considered but the price of it won't be as cheap as the other diffusers on the market.

papethova and i pushing them hard to do a very aggressive one for the 1M i'm sure it'd be easily retrofited to any E82 bumper, its the last piece missing on my build

They would most likely have to make a new prototype and mold to get it to fit to the 135i since the rear bumpers are pretty different. But would be slightly easier if the general design was already made.

Cooler2442 nice pics with the new lens!

WOW! I forgot how nice the stock grey color of the brakes actually looked. I over cooked mine too many times that the stock grey color eventually turned olive green (and the white BMW decal changed to burnt white).

Thanks for the compliment. Haven't seen anyone's stock brakes change colors. You must be pushing the car to its limits at the track days. I've been to a few but haven't pushed it anywhere near the limit.

You are welcome, and thanks! I've been changing the color of my various car's calipers for a long time. Back in the day, the gold Brembo's on my 350Z burned into a nice sunset amber color. Red calipers in cars before then burned into a deep blood-red. I was surprised; I would not have guessed that these would turn olive green starting out gray like that.

I'm sure your ceramic brake pistons will thank you for not pushing the limit...

Is the color consistent on all 4 wheels?
I kind of like this green/yellow combo, compared to the original gray/white.

The rear calipers are definitely several full shades darker than stock, but not as baked olive green as the front calipers. That is mostly because I run with DTC off, but if you wanted them the same then leave it on and they will catch up and quickly surpass the fronts.

I didn't think that there would be any interest in them, but if there is PM me. They are boxed and just taking up space in my garage since I installed my StopTech Trophy Sport BBK.
