135i needed for Borla exhaust R&D, FREE exhaust for you!

HP Autowerks, Inc. works closely with Borla Performance Industries on developing exhaust systems for your BMW and other fine German automobiles.

We are currently looking for a 135i owner who would allow HP Autowerks/Borla to use their vehicle for exhaust developement. In the case fo the 135i, the exhaust is in the final stages, so only fitment and sound need to be evaluated.

What you will get in return is a free exhaust system from Borla. A bit of downside is we will need your vehicle 1-2 days.

Please contact us if this is something you will be interested in doing.

Regards,

Harold

I have not seen the actual exhaust myself. As soon as I can find a 135i owner willing to meet me at Borla and spend a day three, we will all know what Borla has in mind.

A free exhaust is worth two days of taking the bus. Wish I had my car and could do it.

Borla is looking for another 135i for sound evaluation. Please contact us if interested. We will need the vehicle for 2 days and you will get a Borla exhaust in return.
