Suspenceful's 2008 BSM 135i build thread!

After lusting over the BMW 1-series for 3 years, I was finally able to get one of my own. On March 13th, 2014 I brought home a 2008 135i from Holland, MI. I am the 3rd owner and bought it with 81,000 miles.


She was pretty dirty after the 6 hour trip back.

Also, I keep an up-to-date blog with tons of info:
www.My1Series.com

Knowing that I would be keeping this one for a while, I needed to make sure it had everything I wanted.

Black Sapphire Metallic, 6-speed
Black interior with aluminium glacier-silver trim
  • Sport Package
  • Cold Weather Package
  • Comfort Access
  • iDrive/Navigation
  • HiFi Professional Sound System (Logic7)
  • Rear parking sensors
  • No 135i badge from factory
  • Additional cup holder
  • Warning triangle & first aid kit

Modifications it came with:
  • BMW Performance short shift kit and knob
  • Custom stainless-steel axle-back exhaust
  • Riss Racing oil catch can
  • K&N drop in air filter
  • JB+ 20HP chip
  • Powdercoated black Style 264 wheels with 225/40/18 Blizzaks
  • Eibach Pro-Kit springs (1″ drop front and rear)
  • BMW Performance black front grilles
  • Black/white BMW emblem overlays
  • Carbon fiber wrapped interior trim
  • Tinted rear and side windows
  • Tinted side markers

Had my girlfriend drive so I could take a rolling shot:


Next to my 250whp Miata:


I plan to slowly build it to my liking and keep up on maintenance. It hasn't had a walnut blasting yet, so that's on the top of my list of things to do. And I need to get a set of summer wheels so I can get these winter tires off.





Stay tuned!

No rubbing issues at all, just took a 300 mile trip this weekend and things were smooth! Fenders are not rolled or pulled.

Everyone loves pictures. Check my blog for details: www.My1Series.com
