Space Grey 1er Build

Finally got myself a 135i a couple weeks ago and just started making some changes and wanted to create this build log to keep track of all the progress and maybe get some input from y'all.

I purchased the car in Dallas TX for 15,500 with 88k and a extended warranty. The car was basically stock besides a few little things

I plan to take the car to the track when ever I go, but since I have a dedicated track car and my local track is very bumpy this car wont be seeing too much track time.


MODIFICATIONS/PARTS

UPON PURCHASE
- Burger Dual cone intake
- VRSF chargepipe
- Tial blow off

SINCE PURCHASE
- Rotiform RSE wheels
- Hankook Ventus V12 evo 2 tires
- Rolled fenders

FUTURE PLANS
- Coilovers (looking for something affordable and comfortable but able to handle some track duty, any sugestions?)
- FMIC
- VRSF down pipes
- Either JB4 or COBB
- Blackline LCI (any for sale?)

Even though I have the warranty I ended up having to make a repair before getting the warranty transfer in the mail. My window regulator went out a few days after I bought the car and it wouldnt have been a big deal if the window was stuck closed but since it was open and the weather was getting worse I had to have emergency service done at BMW of Austin. They got my window working in a few hours and cleaned by 1er up for me.... But, this job ended up costing me $652 with the actual regulator costing around $175. I could have saved a good chunk of money by ordering the part and having it installed somewhere else or doing it myself but I just couldn't wait on the window with the weather. And Route66 was very helpful about letting me know how to make a claim once the warranty gets transfered into my name.

UPDATE: Wheels and Fenders

I ordered my wheels from WheelLab which I was referred to by Rotiform. They also had a great black friday deal where I got one of my wheels for free with the purchase of a set. Although when I was supposed to get my wheels I only received one wheel, then the next day another wheel, then finally my last two wheels the next day. Initially I contacted Wheel Lab when this happened and they were very helpful in making sure all my wheels were on the way to my house.

Despite not having any rubber yet, I couldn't wait to get them on so I did a little test fitting.

I then ordered my tires from tire rack and got them in 2 or 3 days and had them mounted the day they arrived.

Currently on the squishy stock suspension I was getting a good amount of rubbing taking corners hard and when I hit bumps so I contacted my buddy with fender roller and a lot of experience rolling fenders. He rolled them as much as he said he possibly could without messing with the fender liner and now I only rub when I hit bigger bumps or have someone in the back seat. Hopefully some coilovers can fix my rubbing issue completely.

PS: Also plasti-dipped the Kidney grills but don't have any pics with them

Those wheels looks great. Very close to my Apex ARC-8s, and sounds like cheaper too!

ARC-8's are actually a replica design of the old school BBS RC. I believe BBS have never made the RC wheels in sizes compatible with the 1 Series chassis, unfortunately.

Good to see another space gray metallic. Best color IMHO - I'm biased tho. Curious on the wheel & tire specs also.

Im not sure how much ARC-8s are but I saw my wheel set going for $760 for all 4 the other day. I got them even cheaper and I'm in love so far, plus Ive never seen a 1er with these

Yep. Et35 explains why it's rubbing. Look good for sure. I was happy to see Anthracite on Space Gray. I've been thinking about something similar.

Rubbing front or rear? Sounds like it's the rear.

Yes, the rears rub only, never had an issue with the front even before rolling the fenders

There is a thread around here on hub conversion that gets you an extra 10 mm of offset clearance on the rear. Might help.

If you're going to tint tails, do the 3rd also. Looks tacky otherwise.
