Another new owner :)

Hi,
We just picked up our "new to us" '10 135i. Its Montego Blue with Premium/Sport/Auto with heated seats and rain sensing wipers. 40K on the odometer. Looking forward to learning more.

Nice, but looks more like LeMans Blue to me in your pictures.

The older Cobra looks good as well.

As a newb, I could be wrong. I just went and checked under the hood, it says MONTEGOBLAU METALLIC. Must be the lighting.

Ah Rota, spent many a day there. El Duque and La Playa De La Luz. Miss the sangria and Cuban cigars

Just for storage. I do most of the wrenching on my Cobra and the cardboard "softens" the concrete floor and soaks up fluids when I am underneath.

First up was a good close look at the paint and wheels. Apparently the former owner had a small dog as there are scratches on both doors beneath the handles. I think some M105 will take them out. I took the wheels off and cleaned off the tar and old weight tape residue. The rears needed a 1/2 breaker bar extension to get the lugs loose. I have no idea what torque, but it was a lot. All 4 cleaned and back on at 88 lbs.

Thanks for the warm welcome.
