Just joined

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to say I enjoy reading all these threads. I recently purchased a 2009 135i with a Sport Package. I'm not sure if it has the M-Sport, because I don't have the M wheels. I'm new to the BMW family and all these little mods you can do. I've read so many I don't know where to start.

I'd like to change the kidney beans to black first, but as for performance, where should I start?

Thank you!

JB+ was my first mod, but this didn't even last a month. Now I have the GIAC flash and love it!

Congrats on your new purchase!!!
We offer the matte black black and gloss black kidney grills. As far as first mods I would start with some spacers, drop in filter and a giac or jb.

Tune and wheels what about pics? Maybe you already have aftermarket wheels.

The ///M sport package includes a black (anthricite) headliner along with the open spoke M wheels and M door sills. Post a photo of the car! Congrats.

OP, you do not have the M Sport package. M Sport gets you the anthracite (black) headliner and you can clearly see that yours is light.

Incorrect. You meant to say "M Sport"
