Haha yeah. Pretty sure he lives in linden woods. With what i can see from the videos the guy is a huge retard.

Was at canadian tire today and parked far away like usual. When i came out I saw a car parked beside mine and immediate reaction was "what the heck". But then I noticed that it was a black 135i, haha. Then I thought it was super cool to see 2 135i side to side since i hardly ever see any on the roads.

Wonder if they are on this forum.

Nice car (I did some snooping). I pre-ordered the cobb ap for my N55. Can't wait for summer! Also planning on some tint and axelback. I'd like to get to your mod level eventually, kinda scared to do the dp's/ic though while I still have warranty.
Do you ever go out to meets or track days or anything?

I've been on Heights for a long time now and have gone to a few meets when I can. I still have CPO on my car but don't care about the warranty, I want the car how I like it I want to do tint and PE exhaust then I think I'm done!

unfortunately I wrote off my 1er a few months ago. Was going on the perimeter and a car cut across right in front of me. I tboned his front going roughly 90km/h i would guess. This car saved my life. I walked out of the car on my own and spent the night in the hospital just to get scans done. I had a sore back for a few months and a bruised abdomen from the seatbelt. Im glad that I was driving a car with good crash ratings. This car was a ton of fun stock and even more so with the mods i had on it. I miss her so much. Looking at getting a subaru brz for next car. and yes i know it only has 200hp, hahaha.

ps. I have stock rims and tires mint, winter rims and tires left over if anyone is interested pm me.

Wow that sucks! I was just watching some videos with your car in it from top tier! Pretty impressive that you were able to walk away from it though.

I like the BRZ... little under powered for me though as you pointed out haha. Just out of curiosity why not another 1?

I did consider getting another 1 series Bigfoot, but want to try something else. The brz seems to be a great little car that does well with the power it has. Will be no where close to as fast as my tuned 135 was tho.

Also I like that it is relatively good on gas and is all performance inspired. Also I have to save money for a house haha, so another BMW may break the bank.

Did you guys have any suggestions for a next car for me?? Only requirement is that it is fun to drive haha

Fair enough. I've never driven in one but I hear they handle really well. Plus it's not FWD

The other cars I was considering when I bought my bmw that weren't in the bmw price ball park were the 350z (too small) and an wrx265/sti/evo. I tried a couple and they are fun to drive, especially in winter
Could also always go a little older and put some money into it .

i test drove one a week ago in minneapolis. Couldnt push it too hard but i liked the seating position and how the car rode.

I am somewhat considering a wrx as well. To bad they dont look nearly as good as a brz. But the awd and extra power are a big plus.
