Hey all

So i got the car thursday night and its amazing. The dealership had a few issues but they will all be resolved.

The issues: the dinan software isnt compatible with the 2013 models yet, the cf spoiler was forgotten about, and the paintwork they did (front bumper and side skirts) looks like a monkey sprayed the paint.

The dealership is going to fix everything for me to perfection, as my SA tells me. Lets see how that goes...

The good: the car is amazing. The lmb on oyster is beautiful. Car drives great, feels great, and the suspension helped eliminate body roll (as far as i can tell in the 60 miles I've put on it so far).

I took pics but went away for the weekend and didnt bring a computer, only got my iphone which im using now to post this.

Ill update more from a pc sunday night with photos.

pics of my 2013 135i coupe

hey guys - so as you all know i finally got my car.

to expand on the late night iphone post from the other night, here is what happened:
1) the cf rear spoiler was not ordered by parts so did not get installed, but will be installed with below as well.
2) dinan software is not yet available for the MY13 vehicles for some reason, but should be within 30 days or so according to my SA.
3) the bmw performance front bumper and side skirts paint work was terrible (dealer painted and installed), but my SA has advised me that it will be re-done to perfection under strict supervision of the service manager.
4) the roof of the car has concentrated scratches that IMO look like detailing stuff that was never completed (ie- they sanded out an imperfection and did not polish it completely or at all), which i can fix myself assuming that its not really as bad as i think it is. i am getting a proper light fixture to help me find and fix all imperfections in the paint as im a perfectionist with this stuff.

thats really it, i love the car and have 120 miles on it so far. now enough cheap talk and down to business







BMW Performance Electronic Steering Wheel V2


BMS Intake


quick shot of the BMW Performance Suspension w the yelllow springs


BMW LCI Blackline Taillights (ill get another shot with someone pressing the brake pedal also so that you can see what it looks like lit up)


Once the paintwork gets fixed (i have pics of that also if anyone wants to see) ill take better pics. also still gotta mount the rims and tints, and thinking about what angel eye kit to get.

Random knowledge:

BMW is updating the site right now. If you go to the build a 1 series tab you can see the 135is as an option.

So far so good. I think you replaced one like I did- totaled the 2011 in my case. Anyway, the steering feels tighter in my 2013. Also, can't feel any difference between the 2011 with PPK 1 and 2013 with the PPK 1. Mileage is also about the same. Got 26 MPG in a trip over to St. Petersburg, and got 29 MPG coming back- about 120 miles each way at 75 MPH. Have about 350 miles on it now. HK sound system is great. Michelin PSS are great. Had the Continental DW's on the 2011, and these are better. Could not stand the RFT's so changed them as soon as I took delivery.

The runflats on this car are pretty crappy, and plan to take mine off asap, but had a little issue with the tire mounting shop - they scratched two of my VMRs...

yeah i had a 2011 that was totaled out, and this is my replacement also. i missed driving this car so much, and im sure you fell the same nostalgia that i feel . i feel so .... complete (if thats the right word) in being re-united with the car, except i get to start all over again from 0 miles! haha

only about 190 on mine so far, but gonna add at least 200 this weekend.

Yeah- I felt the same way when I got back into a 135 after 2 months in a rental. Came home with the 135 and told my girlfriend all was right with the world again. Of course she thinks I'm nuts- couldn't understand why I would stop on the way home after taking delivery and replacing the perfectly good tires that came on the car. Ha, ha. Well, it's all set for now- PSS's on, windows tinted, and hardwired the V1.

yeah my V1 is done, tints to come very soon.

i am working with the tire shop to iron out the issues with the rims and cant wait to get a feel for the bmw perf suspension with non-rft. the car feels a little floaty, but much more nible and responsive than before.

Which shop are you getting your tint done at?

i use a private guy - his name is Brad. he does amazing work. for $175 you get any % tint you want, plus a lifetime warranty. he typically does wholesale tinting for dealerships (bentley long island-before they went down hill, rallye, and many others) around the island.

the only problem with going to him is, i have to go to his house at night in massapequa park and leave the 1er with him since the windows index. he does this for all cars with frameless doors like the 1er. he did the same for my friends porsche turbo cab. any other car and your done within an hour usually.

Looks great even in the crappy pictures! Love the wheels. Can definitely see the PE too.

Where is your car? Seems everyone else that was waiting at about the same time took delivery.
