135i Video Build Thread

Hey all,

I've just purchased a 2008 135i N54 and are really excited to see what I can do with the platform.

Having came from an AWD single turbo background (Ralliart, Golf 6R, Golf 7R) jumping into a RWD twin is a big difference!

Working in marketing, I've decided to create some videos as a bit of a passion project.

I've just posted the first one (excuse the clickbaity style title - it helps with views) and will continue to post as regularly as I can.

Plans are to go FBO at first, then maybe look towards more of a 1M conversion (subject to nothing going terribly wrong and sucking up all my $$$)

Video can be found here:

Iím still learning everything but keen to hopefully provide an entertaining project!

Video #2 is now live!

I've listed the top 5 things i love about my 135i with a bit of a showcase edit for anyone that is interested in E82 N54s.

This one is a quicker video - but we'll be getting into mods soon hopefully!

Back at it with video #3

This video is about the things I hate on the 135i - a couple "good to know" points for those thinking about buying one.

Picked up my editing game a little too - let me know your thoughts!

Finally, I have jumped into some mods

Keeping things simple - i've started with visual mods - i've upgraded my steering wheel and it's absolutely amazing.

I've recorded a Install DIY video to go along with it - check it out!

Upgraded angel eyes are now complete! I used the new LUX H8 189 LED Bulbs. They're not cheap, but are super high-quality!

It really makes a difference to the overall look and feel to the car.

Full install DIY can be found here: https://youtu.be/VpZ-Pm-1lyg

Some sections of the install are a little tricky - but definitely doable for the home mechanic!
