Finally sold my 335i and bought an 135i!

Hey guys!

I driven my 335i N54 automatic for 2 years and I always missed driving a stick car. The auto trans with the paddle shifters were great fun but I decided to go back to manual.

So I had my car up for sale and took almost 2 months to sell! I finally sold it last week and picked up my 2011 135i N55 on the weekend.

I was hesitant on the colour (Sedona red) and to be honest I don't think I really like it! . All my cars were black but hoping some visual mods would help that out.

Despite the colour I am really happy about the change and look forward to doing some mods on it

Congrats on the purchase. I reckon the Sedona Red will grow on you. It's a sporty colour with some added class.

You made the right choice.

I like to see something with some colour. I think Sedona Red is a great colour. It helps a car with understated styling make a visual impact.

If you want to dress it up, some wheels may be an option.

Congrats on the purchase.

Congrats mate - love them in red. A nice change from the usual monochrome examples (which still look good, mind)!

I thought all 135i's had the black chrome window surround treatment, first i've seen a silver chrome on a 135i, maybe an option with the exterior colour?

Same, best feature of the car.

I had to make 100% sure my car came with the black chrome when I ordered it. Chrome is ugly as fark.
