The front with the reverse turbo looks pretty good. The sides look okay. The rear looks gaudy with the giant Turbo.

1M is revolting never got the copying of Porsche 'turbo' logo ... The M135 is ok, other than try-hard white wheels. None represent the essence of BMW though

If it would be a real 1M I would say such a waste. Since it isn't, I don't even really care what kind of an aesthetical disaster it is. It is a transvestite of a car and I support diversity

I like the black wheels on the 135. They look easy to clean.....

I also like the flat paint.

I was at the car show and there was a hyundai with flat paint.... that kind of ruined it for me though.

i think in this case the "turbo" logo wasnt copied from Porsche, but from the BMW 2002 turbo - they even mirrored the "turbo" just like it was on the 2002.

also, sportec is a very well known and respected porsche/audi/vw tuner and only just started with bmw - so lets give them some time to find their "way".

I like the 5/10 spoke wheels in straight black, no lip color.

Everything else looks bad.

No, you are incorrect. It looks identical to the Porsche font set.

Mirrored looks ridiculous...nothing special about turbos these days. AMG should put mirrord NA on their C63s!
