Congrats on getting your hands on such a rare and amazing vehicle. Love the seats, but I have to wonder if they are uncomfortable for long rides...

Nice Sauber !

A friend of mine had the same, Sauber Edition (located in 74 Haute Savoie), he loved it
but He can't resist to sell it to take another Honda S2000 (he owned 3 before)

Seats arent that bad for long car rides. I drove from Geneva to Munich (6.5hr ride) and it wasnt bad at all. My old STI seats were much worse, after 2 hours i would have a sore lower back.

They are a bit hot in the summer time but with the seat warmers are perfect for the upcoming cold season .

Dackel, youve seen these seats for 1500 euros? Had i known that i wouldnt have purchased them from the dealer, especially with swiss prices . When i move back to the States, im taking these bad boys with me....ive got the sport seats in my living room and i always get funny looks from visitors.

Thanks for the additional comments guys, hoping to put a Lux kit on soon and then ill take another photoshoot before im forced to put on my winter setup...

I guess you know that difference between 135i oem brakes is just the color

I really wonder. They have to at least have more aggressive brake pads? BMW cannot seriously charge that much for just paint.

F1 Sauber Edition

I have 111 of 135... had it since Sept 2009, love the car, drove it from Zurich to Edinburgh and showed it off to BMW Edinburgh M division manager and he loved it..

Great drive, hardly stopped up to Dunkirk for ferry to Dover...

Great to hear from another F1 Sauber owner. How many miles do you have on your car now? Have you had any issues with it so far?

Correct. I had the dealership setup my wheel and tire package. I needed them to take care of the Swiss paperwork to be certified with my vehicle registration. They sticked with the oem tire size.

I would have preferred to go 225/255 f/r, oh well. When i lower the car, the tires will hopefully tuck better under the arches.

Johnny, nice ride!

You should join us in the European Forums for some of our drives, last year we drove Stelvio Pass and thought about driving up to Davos...you should consider joining us sometime as we are planning another Stelvio and Gross Glockner and Slovenia trips this summer.

The only difference is the color and the rotors


OP- nice car. Jealous of your interior.

Here is an interior pic for your viewing pleasure:



I also <3 the interior/seats. The combination of the telescopic steering column and seating position make driving bliss. Recently Drove from Geneva to Paris (5.5hrs) and return and didn't have an ache in my back. My gf also appreciates the seat warmers .

You wouldnt remove the stripe from a Balboni Gallardo, would you?




Ive seen a few of these cars in person, and yes, the stripes are very badass.
