Just wanted to update you TUN3D since you helped me out a bit. I did NOT need to buy a new washer fluid tank to fit kerscher +15mm Fenders. You DO need to buy 1m side markers and the gaskets though.

The washer fluid tank SHOULD be replace, but it's not 100% necessary if you can live with knowing the tank is pressing up against the side marker ever so slightly. I had to force the side-marker in, but it still mounted up fine and the force doesn't seem to stress the fender that much.

Thanks for the DIY on how to swap the pins on the plug! that was some invaluable knowledge to have when dong the retrofit!

Clearance:


Test fit - this is as far as the side-marker will go without force:


Gaskets you need to by that are used to mount the side-markers:

One other trick if you wish to keep your stock washer bottle, is to gentle heat it with a heat gun just behind where the side indicator light goes..

My experience, if you have painted side markers then you might have a problem. The 135i tank will press against the marker over time, causing it to slightly deform (the marker housing is made out of plastic). Eventually this will cause the paint on the marker to loose adhesion and flake off. I wondered why the paint on my right marker kept flaking off and not my left. I finally replaced the tank and it never happened again.

Hoping to just change rear bumper and quarter panels to 1m and leave the front 135i. Any one have picks of such a car? I am sure I will need to modify 1m the side skirts to accommodate the 135i fenders. Any advice?

This is probably the closest thing you can find to such a car. It's not bad from this angle. However I believe the owner eventually went OEM 1M in the front so the car was consistently wide.

If your okay with doing the 1M rear+ rear arches you might as well do the front imo.

NewlyWedMan & Matticus91 > Still here. Don't frequent the forum that much anymore. Still have the 1er, haven't driven it in a few years. Sitting on the shelf...



Still has the 2J in it. Planning on revisiting it again sometime before the year ends. The only thing really holding back the project has been a bit silly and simple...just haven't had time. Been working on my Supra a shit ton. You guys can catch me on Instagram for that build @mikey2J_

I've been around from time to time. Still answer PM's with questions regarding the conversion, etc. You guys can always reach me that way. I get the email notifications.
