Color combo looks really good, but the 261 don't do much for me.

That lemon interior certainly is a knockout when new - it's what it would look like after 10K miles that potential buyers need to keep in mind. Unless you think nothing of cleaning your upholstery every week, I'd bet it's going to get pretty grungy in a hurry.

I drove this very car yesterday! The dealer let me drive it from the MPH-auto show here in Gothenburg back to the dealer.
Good for me, they told me they will have no 135 available for test-driving until beginning of next year, so I'm happy
The sound of this engine is sweet! Deeper sound than the 335.
Unfortunately it was below zero outside, and summer wheels on it, so I could only push it on the straights.
The Boston leather did not look that nice after 3 days of auto show. The driver seat was brownish already. Probably easy to clean though.

Amazing. Thanks for the post. Rajapruk, you want to add a little more?
Is the car for sale...is it LeMans Blue?

Here in my neck of the woods, often after a car's been on exhibit at an automobile show and suffered some scuffs from the public it goes back to the dealer and (usually) discounted....

Some photos I took just before I drove it out of the hall.
You can see the dirt on the seats in one pic.
Yes, It was Lemans blue. Pretty maxed out with equipment. I think everything was in it.
The dealer said that they migth be able to sell me this one. I will get more info tomorow.

I'm not sold on the Le Mans but I love the 261's. I hope there is a chance we can order them over on this side of the pond.

looks so perfect in that very last picture. honestly was never a fan of le mans blue until then. love it but i could never own it, bit too bold for me.

261s are great though. makes it a tough choice, both are great wheels - fitting my tastes perfectly. i also think these would look good powdercoated a dark color as a classy OEMish dark wheel

That is a really beautiful pic of the 1er. I actually like the look with LeMans Blue. What a color!

I also like the rims a lot. Thanks for the great pics Brook!

Where is the oil cooler supposed to be? Was that photograph taken from behind the brake air duct on the right side of the car?
