My 1st BMW Build

i finally joined the club, it took me a min but after i kept seeing the 135's rip around the Track/autoX. i had to get one. lol Ive always been a Honda guy and will be, but the 135i is Boss. This is my first BMW and im pretty happy with my choice. I just picked up the 1er this pass March all stock and ive been pretty busy modding it since then lol.



New ride picked in March 2013 (stock 2010 135i M-sport)





How it sits now
-CPE Exhaust
-AMS FMIC
-Forge DV's
-BMS intake
-VRSF 3" catless downpipes
-Cobb AP stage 2
-VMR VB3 19"
And some other small stuff lol









Fabricated a license plate bracket








I picked these up because i wanted to try something different. Everyone talks about KW's, HR's etc. so i had to go against the grain lol. The Fortune Coilovers came with built-in Camber plates and 24 level adjustable damping. Heres a link for more info. http://www.fortune-auto.com/fortune5...scoilovers.htm

Heres the install. Sorry no instructions just pic's (alot)

























the car has 58k

My old Civic was putting out 400hp/280tq to the wheels. Pretty fun to drive for me at least. lol but the wife hated it because she couldnt drive it. more or less becasue of the upgraded clutch (6 puck)/fly(8 lbs) hahaha. But she love the 135. but i do worry about her when she takes the car out by herself. she has a lead foot. lol

Nice ride buddy!

Just out of curiosity, how do you find your exhaust note with the CP-E (I assume with silencer pipe) and catless DPs? Are you running stock mids?

I have AR DPs and the rest is CP-E with straight mids. It's pretty crazy haha

Thanks man,
I'm running catless DP's w/ CP-E w/ straight mids. I gotta say the cold start is crazy loud, but it really dumbs down after that. My old civic was straight pipe w/ two resonators, that thing was loud as hell. I couldn't take that thing for long drive at all. My ears would start to hurt lol. But the setup as the 1er is bearable. Hahaha
