135i Coral Red Love

Hey guys i'm new to the forums, i just picked up a 08 135i with coral red interior. It's relatively stock as of now but previous owner did install an AFE DCI stage 2 i believe and also air scoops to go along with it.

Also anyone in the Houston area?

Current plans for the car as soon as time permits
JB4
FMIC
Midpipe
Downpipe
Chargepipe *not sure if i want to get one with BOV or not
Wider wheels
Mild drop on coilovers
Custom 3" exhaust, i already have a brand new FullRace muffler waiting

My first 135i was BSM and coral red. Loved the coral red. Welcome to the forum and congrats on your 1er.

Thanks guys, I'll be keeping the neck pillows. I spend too much time in traffic and they come in handy.

I do admit that I have bad posture, I like the look of the neck pads also.

Also can anyone help me with my exhaust? It doesn't sound stock and not sure what previous owner may have done. It's noticebly louder than my sisters 535i. My exhaust has black chrome tips, not sure if those came stock or not

Nice car!!
I would add an intake to that mod list. Once you go FBO it is proven that the intake will add around 10 whp.

Yea the red interior was the main selling point for me, it's my fave color.

As for tint I'm not sure, it's a little too light for me. I had 5% on my last car
