Photoshoot: SGM 120d Coupé vs AW 123d Coupé with some performance parts

My 118d Hatch (E87) has been recently replaced by a new 120d Coupé (E82).

This weekend I did a small photoshoot together with a 123d Coupé from a friend with some performance parts on it.

Let me know what you think of it

The complete photoshoot (43 pictures) can be found here.

Both cars have optional M sport suspension (-15 mm). Rims were also optional.

Looks great! Would love to see more of the roof if possible. How was the film applied? Did you DIY?

Its an eyelid Pity they aren't 135s! Would love to see a quad exhaust setup from BMW on the AW 1 series and a genuine roof - now THAT would be awesome

Oh man the standard 135i wheels on the 120d make it look sooo much better. Possible swap in my future...
