It is an amazing 135. The wheels and stance really make a night and day difference over stock

thanks
yeah I did (I had to) - the Tomasons didn't "really" fit well so I had to decide whether to change the rims or to work on the body

It is a single part that can easily be removed

Nice. What wheels are you on now?

Did you code BMW Performance brakes when you changed to 335i brakes?

I'm now on 8x19 offset 45 Keskin KT-12 Racing (they are a real bargain for 19").
the quality is not perfect but the yellow ring matched my "styling" pretty well.
tires are still the same

at first I drove the standard braking software - it felt good but I had the feeling the ABS kicked in a little to late.
after coding the ABS kicks in slightly earlier than before. I changed the braking fluid and also installed steel flex brake lines which in my oppinion made the biggest difference.

I feel my ABS is early on 135i brakes ( front & rear)
Which brand Steel line did you use?

I bought Fischer brand steel lines, they were 177€ on ebay (what a coincidence - they are yellow )

Any closer pics of the portion painted yellow? Looks nice and subtle but yet noticeable. More pics of the girl would be nice too.
