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.

The BMW PE definitely protrudes out more than the garden variety 135 due to the fact it was designed to be pared with the BMW Performance Diffuser.

Oner owners have been wringing their hands over this ever since the PE was released.

Personally, I don't see the big deal over this.

I prefer to be incensed and decry the loss of the stock black chrome tips look than the length.

One of the other cons with the PE was a discernible drone at certains rpm bands. Have you detected any such behavior on your is?

And, oh by way congrats! It's still a handsome looking vehicle despite my nitpicks.
