120d M Sport by Metralha - Portugal

Hi there,

Decided to share my “baby bimmer” with all the fans of this nice community

Next “mods” already in my mind:

- Eibach pro kit springs.
- BMW performance brake kit.

Hope you like….

Waiting for comments / Suggestions .

tastefully done mate. have you thought of painting the mirror caps gloss black? to match the mirror mount.

do you know if the msport springs can be fitted to a non-msport 1er like mine?

I thanks for the nice words.
Yes Gloss black was an option but i decided to match instead with the front grills and the wheels ... maybe in a new re-paint.

From what i know it is possible to fit M-sport springs in the non-Msport ... some people here in Portugal change the M-sport springs for the Eibach springs and sell the "old" M springs to the people with nom Msport springs...

do it painted or not those rims are beautiful. the darker paint would hide the brake dust so less need to clean

Nice choice on the new rims

They'll look smart once painted.
