135i body kit on a 128i?

Can you put the so called "M" package 135i kit on a 128i at your BMW dealer ship. I asked the guy there and he said that the 135i's body it is called the "M" package kit.

Drawarms: The 135i comes standard with the "aerodynamics" kit... Essential the front and rear is the same as the M-kit (just without the foglights - for break cooling)...

The M-kit is obviously more than just the external, it comes with the sports seats, m- gearshift, door inlays, thicker sterring wheel etc... If you're buying the m-sport pack, it will look almost identical to the 135i from the outside except your 128 / 125 / 123d / 120d coupe will have foglights and it won't have a black chrome exhaust tip like the 135i has.

Hope this helps.

In America we are not getting the proper M Package for any model, including the 135i. The 135i does come standard with the aero bits and the suspension, but the steering wheel and shift knob come only with the sport package and the door sills, style 261 M wheels, and anthracite headliner are not available.
That said, you could buy the front and rear valances and associative mounting bits from your dealer after purchase, but it is my understanding that you could not order the car to come with them pre-installed. That being the case, I think you will be able to find some of this used when people move over to the Tii-like front aero and rear diffuser. You could of course just get those Tii parts for your 128i when they become available and forgo the 135i's M kit altogether.

That sound is the cash register...I'd just get the 135i. BMW is going to charge an arm and a leg for the kit on a 128i.
