Hi.

This will mostly be a photo journal for me to look back on but feel free to follow and comment if you wish

I have previously owned the following super low milaged cars which you can see here:

www.garaget.org/philly

2 x M3 E36
3 X M3 E46
M6 E63
2 X Z4 M Coupé
Z4 35is
And I now own my 135i for the second time

I bought this car in October 2019 and a friend asked me several times if he could buy it this year. I sold it i March and regretted it so I bought the car back in June

Ok enough about that. Here's the car:

2011 N55 LCI
MANUAL
Alpine White on black Kansas leather
26000 miles / 42000 km
Various M Performance interior parts
Gloss black grill
PPK 1
M Performance exhaust
Z-Performance ZP.09 8x19 ET 40 + 9x19 ET 45 Matt gunmetal
Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 225/35 + 255/30

This is how it looked like the first time i saw it.

I was looking for something small and fun to drive and had never driven on of these before but I fell in love with it directly.

The car was really good maintained but the car died for a polish and a really good clean.

I only drove the car 100km home before I stored it for the winter haha. This is when I got it home

Silver bulbs for the fender turn signals
New black Velour floor mats
Cleaned the engine bay and interior
Polished the car and got Ceramic Pro
M Performance style spoiler in gloss black
M Performance style diffuser painted gloss black

Sorry, I live in California, where aftermarket DPs are illegal except for "off-road use" and wouldn't pass a smog test, so I never bothered to look in to them.

I'm sure someone else can help you, though.

Good luck!

PS - besides, was happy with the PE the way it was.

Wheels removed. God I love these

First layer of paint



Finished product
