Hey John, love the thread. How do you like the 3d lip? Do you have to avoid speed bumps at all costs? I have H&R sport springs too, and am debating those lips as well.

Have to drive slowly and carefully through dips. Other than that it's fine. I clear bra'ed the bottom just like GTRs but let me just say some of the clear bra is already scraped off after 2 weeks. You know they say if you ain't scraping you ain't low enough right

wow nicest 135 i've seen in the forum hands down, congratulations..!

how did you paint the carbon accessories? i especially love what you did to the diffuser.. how did you get the right paint?

also, I haven't even gotten my 135 yet (its being shipped ), but I already hate the yellow blinkers on the headlights.. how did you get rid of them?!?!

HellaFlush 5

My car isn't HellaFlush certified, but I did attend HellaFlush 5 for the car meet. A great turn out and I felt Yoshi made a great first impression for the people who have never seen a 1 series before, let alone a modded 1 series. Here's Yoshi in Sunny Venice Beach mode

cool build!

any interior shots?

considering the amount of money you've put into the car, have you considered maybe going with some aftermarket seats - i.e. recaro sportster or some kind of reclinable Bride seat?

Thanks! I thought CF didn't match well with the blue color so I tried to use it as less as possible, but since some parts only came in cf I had to.

I actually upgraded the seats with some very great conditioned BMW sport seats!



While not much of an upgrade to some, this was a huge one to me never having sports seats before. and I was offered an awesome deal for them by Add1ct a great member here!

steering wheel is next
