Girlfriend recently joined the BMW family. She picked up a 228i and took her for a drive with the older sister. Surprised how smooth the 228i is. I expected worse. Crazy that stock @ 4 cyl it’s as fast if not faster than my tuned 128i.

But I’ll always have a soft spot for the 1 series. And if you have a 128i and haven't done the 3 stage intake + tune I highly recommend it.



Thinking about swapping the black rims for VMR 710s in hyper silver? I feel like the car could use some contrast. Or stay black? GF says black but I’m thinking with the mods done I wouldn’t mind something more of a stock look with it. Returning back to silver and placing the BMW caps I feel would bring it back all together.

I say go for the 710s in Hyper Silver. Would look great with your paint. Not sure if it's Mineral Gray, Space Gray, or Sparkling Graphite, but I'm guessing Mineral Gray since your car is a 2013. All nice colors and would all look good with the Hyper Silver imo.

Personally, never been a fan of black wheels. My wife has them on her '15 Pearl White 370Z and I think a silver or gunmetal would look better. Can't tell her that, though. Don't want to hurt her feelings. She's happy the way it is. And if she's happy, I'm happy.

Just picked up my 2012 135i M Sport 6MT a week or so ago. Already have a handful of parts on the way. Love this car already!
