I'm very excited about the thread! There will be lots of pretty photos (courtesy of nmphtg) and track videos. It'll be great to read through the thread and reminisce in a few years.

Plenty of 1er's guys here that can offer a lot of advice for you.
Since you are Melbourne based, here's a thread you might like to follow for future events. All are welcome to attend.

Saw your post on BCA and they also run events throughout the year aswell, they are a great group to be part of too.
Thanks! I'm keen to get out to some events, I know a lot of Melbourne BMW guys generally but not too many 1er owners.

I've done most of the bolt on handling mods and can say it will really transform the car.

I'd suggest good tyres and rear subframe bushings as the first mods imo
I'm really surprised by the amount of people who have recommended rear subframe bushings. I'll have to look into getting it done. Just a bit hard because its not something I can do at home and it would be expensive to get done at a shop. And the tyres have been replaced already (post to come).
