Project Heisenberg: Continuously Updated Build & Photo Journal

Hey all,

New member here, old member on Bimmerforums. I've had my 135i now for less than a week but I absolutely love it. It's amazing how much it feels like a new, better version of my old E30's and E36's. I'm very happy I went with this car instead of a E9x simply because of the size/weight. The car seems perfectly balanced with amazing torque and handling. It's safe to say I'll be hanging on to it for a while and hopefully becoming a contributing member of this community. As some of you may know, I just moved from Ithaca New York to Santa Cruz California, as of June 5th. So let the journey begin

June 1, 2012
I really wanted to support a Bimmerforum sponsor and ship the car via Intercity Lines. However, they didn't have any availability for 2 weeks and that didn't work for me. I hopped on Uship and found Montway Auto Transport which seemed to be the highest ranked. They also gave me a competitive rate for a fully enclosed trailer. However, Montway decided to contract the deal out to VIP Transport from Charlotte NC. The process was headache free and the car arrived in one piece.




































Thanks for looking

Thanks. Let me also say that I was on the fence about the wheels when looking at the car. After seeing it in person though, they look so damned good

Car looks great, really like the LMs.
Is Project Heisenberg a physics or Breaking Bad reference?

Something about your pics looks off...like they're almost too bright in some areas and the shadows are too dark. Nice cars though Love the wheels too .

That would be a crappy camera, coupled with a crappy lens, coupled with quick editing. I will definitely take some more time when I shoot new updates for the car

I had never encountered Eurotek before this, but they seem to make really nice stuff.
