Hello Everyone!

Hey guys. Been a member here for a little while (doing my pre purchase research) and picked up a 2010 135i about a month ago. All I can say is that this car is incredible.

I've had a thing for this car ever since it came out, and it didn't help that I knew someone with a brand new '08 135i back when I was a senior in high school. I actually bought his first car from him when he decided on getting the 1er, but that's another story. Long story short he now drives a VO 1M...

I'm coming from an '05 Legacy GT (was Stage 2+ if anyone's interested) and I've been a member of the on NASIOC and LegacyGT.com for some time. Needless to say, the mod bug is already here....

Now that the boring stuff is over...

2010 135i Jet Black 6MT M-Sport
- Picked it up with 8,950 miles (yes that's right, it was a garage queen from Vermont )
- Has the BMW PPK1 installed
- Unfortunately still on runflats...

Down at the Beach (Captree, LI)


Crappy iPhone shot


When I hit 10K!


I'll have more pictures up soon in the pictures section but I've been lazy recently....

Welcome and congratulations! That is one sweet looking ride! You're gonna love the car even more once you ditch the run flats!

Thanks, yeah I couldn't believe the mileage. Closest thing I've ever seen to buying a brand new N54 1er in 2013.

Thanks! Yeah I actually have to change the tires very soon. The car was barely driven to the point of having some dry rot on the front tires (rears were just replaced with new RFTs before I bought it)

Haha yeah agreed, I barely see them anywhere on LI. Also in search of some good local driving roads if you have any suggestions. Also, how do you like the v12's?

the v12's are solid tires. Good wet and dry traction and they've been wearing nicely. They can handle some spirited driving but i hear they're not the best track tire.

Yeah I'm not looking for a track tire just a good all around stock replacement. I'm going to be getting wheels soon and the stock wheels will be my "winter" (I have another car for snow and rain) tires. I'll probably end up going with all seasons so they perform better in the colder temps.

Thanks! I don't commute daily on the LIE but I'm right off exit 58 so I'm on there pretty frequently. I'll lookout for you next time I am haha

if you have room for storage, i HIGHLY recommend you getting summer tires and separate set of winter tires----especially if this is your DD/only car. Even though we don't get a lot of snow....i think the temperatures are low enough for several months that winter tires are sort of a must.

all seasons are not really enough in the winter on a RWD car, IMO.

Appreciate your take on this. I have a Subaru (soon to be a Jeep once I sell the Subie) for snow/rain and a Garage for days like today haha. Once the salt hits the roads, driving it will be sort of limited (we'll see how long that lasts haha). So I was trying to weigh out if winters would be worth it being that I won't be driving it TOO much when the weather is crappy. But from a traction standpoint, even in dry weather, I'm sure they are a huge improvement in the cold. So I may go that route regardless.

Great pickup especially with the low miles. I also longed for the 135i until I bought one a few months ago and I absolutely love it. I like it more with each passing day as I have become more bonded with it during spirited mountain driving. In 2008, I debated between a e92 coupe and the 135i and chose the 328i coupe for its sexy looks and more grown up look but I never could get over the 135i longing. The 328i was a great car and I loved it very much but I am happy now to have the 135i. Congratulations and take it as soon as you can on some twisty country roads where you will appreciate it even more.
