E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

All Carbon Fiber BMW 135i 400HP 2500lbs in Our Showroom

Well our friend Bobby Downes brought his custom 135i into our showroom during our Bavarian Fest at Schaeffer BMW down here in Wilmington. I snagged a couple photos for the forums, the doors on this thing come in at around 3lbs each, opening and closing them feels unreal. It has 400HP and 420 foot-pounds of torque. It will be in our showroom until October 31st, if anyone is in the area and wants to check it out. The BMW 1M will also be coming back into our showroom this Wed. night.

Is that thing wind tunnel tested or did someone slap that **** on there and hope as hell it works? It looks cool but as they say "Form follows function."

Very clean. I myself would have done without the Honda Civic approved spoiler, and the lip is a bit much. Overall the rest of the car looks VERY nice. Possible new look for the 1 Series? Even the 1M looks like a puppy compared to that

Mein Auto: waiting for the M4!
I can appreciate it, but honestly, not into the heavily modded exterior. Something about those vents around the wheels that just don't look right.
