I'm interested in what you used to do this mod, even though I just bought new front and rear tyres to suit the standard set up yesterday

why dont you just get original 1M wheels then or replicas of them?? i think the sharper curves of them suits the 1M better than the older csl replicas like VMR sell. just my 2 cents.
With the standard 135i hubs the 10" ET25 rear is effectively ET15 and will be a good fit. 3mm more clearance on the outer edge than my 19x11 with the hub mod.
That front fitment is fine. Sorry about the dirt...



The rear hub mod uses some specific 130i parts to match the 1M hub position but allow use of the 135i rear brakes.
Brake discs:
34216795755 slotted
34216787931 plain
Both are expensive and take a while to get so I used some aftermarket ones from Germany.

Hubs:
33-41-6-760-058-M36

Wheel bearings need to be replaced as part of the swap 33-41-6-775-842-M842

ECS sell a kit: ECS Hub Kit

It's a bastard of a job or up to $1k labour so only really worth it if you want full compatibility with 1m / M3 wheels. I'm a bit annoyed that I bothered since now I'm swapping it all out but I wasn't 100% certain I was doing the S65 swap at the time. Hopefully someone else can use them...

Not to cut on this thread, is there a build thread going up for your car?

Soon. I figured it makes the most sense to have a thread titled something like "Australian S65 powered 1M clone" but was wary of starting it before before it was actually done!
The 1M conversion is done and the car is off having the S65 installed over the next few weeks so it's probably time I started the build thread...

I have put a few pics on Instagram @1seriesV8

Once they start it will be their main job but I have given it a couple of months at least mentally.

subscribed! good work so far, I am actually in the process of getting my n54 135i converted to a 1M body, ordered parts from the UK, just having some issues with sourcing specific parts for the kit and rim fitments are giving me headaches

I got all my mine from ECS in one hit there was just an issue with one of the front guards in terms of availability but it was sorted. I was going to order the rear quarters as well but shipping was huge so I am going the fabricated route.

Agreed rims have been a headache but I contacted VMR who pointed me in the right direction. Many who have gone down this route have done the M3 suspension upgrade which sets rims back to the 1M offsets. Research and using 1 Addicts has paid off.

Good luck and happy to help if I can with any questions.
