The only issue i have with the 1er like stig said, is the ugly ass gigantic headlights. I don't get why they can't make the front end more sleek like every other BMW. instead we get a pig nosed awesome in every other way car. I added CSR eyelids to mine to at least make the headlights look a little less shitty.

which reminds me, I really want to get vinyl eyelids like this made for my 1er in AW http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/8...shed800cj3.jpg

I haven't found anything as of yet, any info or links would be awesome. I'd pay for a set right now and sell my CSR one's immediately. At first it looks sleepy to me, but it really grew on me and gets rid of so much empty ugly area on non LCI headlights.

It looks stupid. It makes the car look like it has eyelids and a face- the only car allowed to have a face is an Austin Healy and even then it's kind of terrible. Please don't do that to your car.

That's just how you look at it, i look at it as shaping the headlights how they should be. To each their own, that's the fun part about modding your car.

If you like eyelids, how about some eyelashes?

I've actually seen those on so many cars. It makes me wanna tbone the drivers side of the persons car. I'm still probably going to try and have vinyl eyelids made in that shape. i found mattig's eyelids and they're similar, but they don't quite come down as far as the above ones do. They do look better than my CSR eyelids though. Anybody wanna buy them? haha.

welp.

Turns out my warranty ends this saturday. I bought my car as a demo in december 2009 and I thought I was told even though it was a demo, since I was the first "buyer", the warranty would begin the day I bought the car.

Turns out that wasn't true. Luckily I brought in my car for the recall service today and my advisor noticed it. I am getting a full scope to see if anything can be replaced under warranty. They already agreed to change out the rear brakes even though it says I have 1,000 till they are suppose to be changed.

So I guess demo's aren't considered certified pre-owned (CPO) and aren't eligible for the extended warranty? That'd be too bad if that was the case. How long did the dealer have the car before you bought it? I like CPO because I effectively got an extra year of warranty or almost double the mileage allowance and the car was only a year old when I bought it. I have a 2008 and I'm going to get another full year of warranty coverage as a result.

Not sure what the official policy is but if I were buying a demo I'd ask if it could be CPO'd.

Coming from a VW Rabbit to the BMW 128I what's not to love? The hard part is the lack of mods you can do on the BMW. The VW had all kinds of vendors willing to take your money for mods and the 128I is exhaust and intake and suspension. No matter, I still enjoy the BMW 128I more.

235 square. No rubbing at all despite Pilot Super Sports being quite bit wider than other tires of the same theoretical width.

45. 40 would be the wrong aspect ratio and would screw up the odometer.

I'll get some pictures up when I finally get some free time. She needs a spring detail, interior clean, Leatherique treatment, and some proper SLR camera time. Just did the intake manifold/tune yesterday when I had a few spare hours. Drafting my thoughts on it now.

The tires/wheels feel unbelievably good though.
