Name That Mod Game

Hey everyone, could use some help. I'm looking at possibly purchasing this 135. It is being sold by a company that bought it off the original owner. It obviously has been modified but I can't get the specifics. It does has aftermarket suspension. Can anyone tell me what mods have been done to this 135. I'm looking for specifics like actual name of wheels, lip, ect. Pictures aren't the best but they're all I have. THANKS!

Oh wow, thanks, that's an awesome lip. I would imagine the rear spoiler is similar?

I can't for the life of me figure out the wheels because of the dark pictures but possibly APEX ARC-8???

Thanks for the help!

Would have been nice if it had a carbon fiber look to match the lip.

I'd say that the wheels are either VMR or Apex. They seem to be the most common brands for black csl style wheels.

Yes, I agree. I normally would give some pause to purchasing a modded car but this one seems to have been done right. I probably would add similar mods anyway. Some blackline tails would really bring it all together.

I am interested/concerned about the performance mods. Would have it checked out by a mechanic. It's about a 3 hour drive from me.

Would love to get in touch with the previous owner.

Tints, black gloss grills, icarbon lip(thats a really nice one), BMW performance rear spoiler. Definitely get an expert mechanic to inspect it. It looks clean, but who knows what's underneath. It will be worth every penny!

Edit: look at the paint also for swirls to see if it was washed properly. If it looks like it'll need a buffer/polish, then make a big stink about and knock that price down some more

Great, thanks for the tips!

Anyone with a really good eye tell what the wheels are?
If you highlight the picture you can make them out a little better but may be impossible until I go see in person.

I think they are APEX Arc8s. They are really nice wheels. Very light and durable with a perfect fitment for the 1. I used to have a set but had to sell them
