No further plans of now. Maybe recaro cs at some point.

3rd car which will see mostly street miles and some track.

Cool mods op, not familiar with the difference between euro and us headlights
I am taking a very long and hard look at the 1Ms here in Germany, since i was intentionally looking for a 135i to daily and upgrade the suspension, tires and get a LSD. Not interested in power gains (at the moment) and finding one with a N54 engine clean, untuned with a good history is almost non existent the last 2 and a half months of searching.

There are quite a few 1Ms with very low mileage (one has 25,000kms) directly from BMW with a warranty, service plan etc, double the asking price of what 135s are going for.

I am seriously considering financing one, since the 1M is pretty much perfect and i do not plan on any power mods. But parking that 1M outside and daily driving it kind of makes me feel bad, it is a special car but it is pretty much perfect, i might pull the trigger at the end of this month or early Feb regarding a clean 135i or the 1M.

In any case, if i do get the 1M i plan to keep it as stock as possible for as long as possible, since it will be daily driven. Maybe a software upgrade down the road when i get used to the power (lol eventually).

May i ask why did you sell your first 1M? I also plan to track it a few times (85% street and 15% track is my plan).

I think there is a whole thread in showing all aftermarket wheels. I found it awhile back, but I agree the factory wheels are my fav.

I'm planning on getting a set of BBS RiD wheels for next summer...I don't think there's another wheel that's nicer in my opinion..the Fi / RiD wheels are my favourite aftermarket wheels for the 1M.

Euro headlights
Dinan exhaust
Dinan intercooler
Powdercoat wheels gunmetal (pic credit to 1MGator)
H&R lowering springs
265/285 tire setup











Great post. I would love all your mods on my AW. I also been thinking about gunmetal since everyone seems to powdercoat them black. The European headlights and the dinan exhaust are a must. Thanks for the inspiration.
