That's a serious and good looking air intake.

Looking good Angus! The car's evolved very nicely! How'd you get the VO accentline painted on the spoiler?

Thanks mate...

I got it from JBSPEED: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=617837

And as you can see, they will do pretty much any colour you want (and yes, the first few photos are my car ). They also add an extra clearcoat on top after adding the stripe.

They add the stripe after you order and that takes a week or so but mine shipped from their factory to my door in under 2 days....

I think personally those plates look sweet as. I wish Victoria had them. They look nice and clean and awesome. We have prestige plates, but I don't think they're made of plexi

Yeah... I had personalised plates on the last car but they were still the standard metal ones - just in different colour/design. (In my case silver on black)

I had seen a couple of other 1ers with the flexi plates - specifically Karl (BIZAU) and Vinney (BMW86) and they looked the business so I figured with this car, why not?

Car looks incredible Angus. So wish i listened to you guys and bought one instead of the 135i, you chose the best colour, loving the VO with the blacklines, black badging etc.

Other states might do something similar - I don't know - but QLD has http://www.ppq.com.au (Personalised Plates Queensland) and they have an absolute butload of plate designs - if you're willing to pay...

Yeah.... Gotta get the Cobb first... They ran out of v3 modules so it's backordered...

I'm thinking this sort of finish for the wheels (without the stripe around the edge of the barrel):

Installed a set of white LED Interior Lights. Really happy with the result. They're not actually as bright as this picture makes them look. I think they're just about perfect.

Set includes:
  • 1 Festoon Light and 2 Map Lights - Front
  • 1 Festoon Light and 2 Map Lights - Rear
  • 1 Glovebox Light
  • 2 Footwell Lights
  • 2 Vanity Mirror Lights
  • 1 Boot Light

14 lights. No error codes. All completely Plug and Play. Took about 1/2 an hour to install and half of that was figuring out how to get at the front lights. Cost: $70

Looks awesome. I really liked your AW 135 and I'm sure this one will turn out just as well. That intake - very nice. Glad the mods are coming along

Where did you get the LED kit from?

They're 8000K. Got them from the UK via eBay.

Definitely worth getting these lights... had them in my 135i and 1M. Give the interior a much cleaner modern look. They are not as bright as in the photo though just slightly brighter than stock.

Do it. They make a huge difference.

Totally agree. After getting out of the F30 Luxury spec loaner that BMW lent me while the insurance/new car was getting sorted out the 1er felt a little out of date...

The white interior lighting makes a huge difference and you're right. Definitely feels more modern and not at all harsh. (Was afraid that it might feel a bit harsh/stark with pure white lighting but it doesn't at all.)
