My Montego Blue 1er...

Hello all!

I bought my 1er from another member last June. I have to say, I am absolutely in love with this car! Here's a few from last weekend.

Looks great! And unbelievably shiny, too! You use something special on it?

Always loved that Montego Blue as the first 135i saw in March 2008 was a Montego Blue on the showroom floor and was tempted to buy instead of my silver one that was coming in a few weeks. Never seen one in person since!

Thanks for the kind comments! For now, I intend to keep it stock. The only thing I've done is replace the stock RFTs with some good Hankooks. Huge upgrade! I'd also like to do an interior vinyl wrap on the trim pieces. Don't really like the fake wood with black leatherette. Anyone have experience with that?

My last car was an E36 328 in Arctic Silver. I had resolved to get a blue 1er or nothing. Turns out I had to fly halfway across America and drive 1500 miles home with the new baby

I shot these with a D600, 28 f/1.8 and 85 f/1.8. Lighting was from garage overhead as my flash batteries died at a bad time. In sunlight the blue doesn't look quite so dark. I love this color!

Just bought a 2009 Montego Blue 135 M-sport last weekend. I have had 13 BMW's over the last 10 years, and have only had one other blue one, Orient Blue 1995 525iT, so it was time to get another one. I much prefer Montego over LeMans...so glad I found mine so close!

Your car looks wetter than water. I keep my car in a deck and cannot come close to that photo quality. Great pictures!
