New 135i owner!

Hello everyone!, I just purchased a titanium silver manual 2011 135i with 45k miles yesterday. I am switching from a G35 (finally). I live in chicago so I am currently preparing for the harsh winter for the little 1. I am excited to start modding as soon as the funds are avaliable!

Aren't those sport seats to die for? What about that chunky ///M steering wheel? The sport pkg on the 135i is the best and only real option necessary imo.

Congratulations on your new ride! I came from a G37 and really appreciate the BMW straight 6 motor over the NVH of the VQ engine.

Are you planning to install a set of winter tires on your 261 rims or get a set of dedicated rims?

Chicago and no heated seats? Oh the horror!

Looks good. Avoid those infamous Chicago potholes.

I'm fearing the -20 it can get to! Luckily I'm far enough away from the city so I don't have to see as many potholes..

Congratulations from a fellow 135i newbie. I fall in love again every time I step on the accellerator. Does that mean I have a problem? Although I did fill up w/ Shell V power for $2.69 a gallon, so I don't feel too bad.

Congrats, looks a lot like mine.

Definately dump those RFT tires as soon as possible. I replaced with Michelin PSS and it's a night/day difference.
