I would say that is very functional and the only option available to date besides trusting a shop to do custom everything.

Do I wish it wasn't an exact 1M copy? You bet your ass I do. Who wants to put up with all the 1M owners tearing you down piece by piece for reassurance that thier epeen is still bigger than yours lol.

But I'm not so insecure with myself that I wouldn't do this. Any argument that involves what anyone else thinks about WHAT YOU DO TO YOUR OWN CAR is just sad and looks worse on your character than that bodykit will look on my 1er.
Agreed that people mod their cars to their liking however this is just stupid. It looks like the 1M. I still think it's insane that BMW didn't produce more of them. I just can't see spending so much money to make a car look like something it's not.

And unless I'm confused here, this is nothing more than a kit from what I can see on the first post. I'm assuming that means everything else involved in being able to utilize a wide body kit would be required as well and if that is true, I'd rather find some yuppy that didn't realize the amazing 1M they had and it's potential so I could buy it from them.

Those are really great looking convertable photochops.
BMW should have done this. Think it looks better than the 1M coupe.

I agree. I wouldn't go for this if I had a stock 135i that I just bought a year ago. I have a decent amount of mods already (including a quad exhaust that looks just fine). A wide body would be a logical step for me after an LSD. The look doesn't bother me asthetically, but I agree they could have done a better/different design. But hey it's easier to fake it than make it lol.

And I would not pay anywhere near the price they are asking. There are other options in the works. Hopefully the company takes note of this thread and steers clear of a clone idea.

Can't agree. It would have been contrary to the whole "enthusiast's M" concept.

You don't think you can be an enthusiest in a vert?

Probably a few people on here that would disagree.

BUYERS BEWARE ! Contacted prior design about ready stocks and pics of kit mounted. Was told to refer to the pics on their website. What do they think we are ?? Chopped liver ??? I just wonder why they go through the trouble to release this kit, got some of us excited, knowing that they can't deliver ??!! Sheesh !
