My 2005 118i

Hi, New to the forums around here, thought I'd say hello and share my bmw 118i.
Brought this car as my first car, It was in bad condition when I got it and had many oil leaks which I'd get fixed and a new one would appear. Finaly after many dollars later, gaskets replaced, oil sumps replaced, it doesnt leak oil anymore. It was the only 1er with leather seats in my price range at the time. The exterior color is really odd, I don't see many 1 series with this blue/grey around here. Love my one series, Doesn't have the most powerful engine but drives really nicely.

Recently I replaced the chrome grill with a nice black one, that really makes a diffence. I am hoping to get some 18" matte black gtc wheels to replace these odd looking flower petal spoked stock ones.

Got a new set of wheels a few months ago, thought I'd share here as there isn't many examples of a 1er hatch with the csl style wheels on here. The wheels are GTC GT-CX 18' in matte black.
I love the deep concave on them. They have the 9.5 offset which the tyre shop didn't think would fit on my E87, but jason (the seller) insisted that they fit and they fit perfect.
So far they have curbed a little bit unfortunately becuase I crashed into the curb next to the ticket machine in a carpark, which is incredibly noticable with the black finish (not when I took these photos) The 4 wheels were about $999AUD.
I think there a big improvemnt over my previous stock wheel which I didn't like at all. Now all I want is a 6cyl engine, might have to wait till I can afford a 125/135i!

Looks great. I like the new wheels. I really wish BMW brought the 5 door hatch to the states.

You see... we in the US wish we could get that body and do N54 swaps to it.

Looks great!

Yeah it's the stock suspension but I think it looks lower than usual becuase its parked on a slight slope. Have been thinking about lowering it but I think the heights not too bad.
