My E87...

Hi guys,

I've been lurking for a fair while but haven't really introduced myself here just yet. I bought my 130 last February and since I've bought some bits from Stu @ BMR (very helpful I'm sure most of you already know). I've also bought some wheels from Apex & replaced the rft's with some PS3! So I thought it was about time I took some photos and showed you all my 1er...

2006 130i (with the factory M-Sport as usual for the Australian 130's)
- Blackline LCI's
- BMWP Intake
- Staggered 1er fitment APEX EC-7's 18", 8.5 et45 (F) 9.5 et58 (R)
- 225/40R18 & 255/35R18 Michelin PS3
- I have a shark fin aerial that I've been too lazy to install too, so that will go on at some point.



















What's next?
How long is a piece of string...

Good luck with further progress

That's nicely done mate. I have the same car in black, with the original 17"s. I have blackline LCI's without the LEDs. Did you put the LEDs on yours? If so, do you mind me asking how you went hooking them up to the number-plate lamps? I've heard it's a bit tricky, thought I'd see how you got on.

Oh, and where did you have your paint done?

Cheers.

Cheers, I bought the Hi version lights (with the LED strips), there's a sort of write-up between me and another member here in this thread.
As for paint, it was only the shark fin so I wasn't too fussed about going to a brilliant paint shop. I just went somewhere local (Castle Hill)...

That reminds me... I still have to install that shark fin I got off you

Car looks great in LeMans Blue. My old 120i was the same colour and I think it's one of the best colours!

I bought them direct from APEX, they were very helpful (especially with customs stuff). They sent them express too so they only took about 4 days to show up! Considering that I thought the shipping cost was pretty good as well.

Also, I weighed the wheels before they went on (I know APEX list the weights on their site but I was curious). Fronts were about 8.6kg and rears 9.2kg.
For Reference, the standard style 208's were about 11 - 11.5kg from memory.

Thanks, I'm loving the colour! But I think I would've been happy with any of blue, black, grey/graphite.
