E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
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 a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Re: 135i Converted to 1m?

While you're at it, slap a "type R" sticker on it....

Be happy with what ya got man. 135s are awesome.. Anyone who knows what a 1M is will know it's fake, and those whom don't know don't care... Most couldn't tell you the difference bettween a 3 and a 7 series.

Unless of course you mean everything swapped out from LSD diff, suspension, interior, mirrors, fenders, hood, quarter panels, wheels, exhaust, and kick plates... In which case it'd be cheaper to sell your 135 (which call me crazy I believe is really a 128) in for a 1m.. If you could find one. Good luck with your "135"....

So sorry don't mean to be so rude. I can just see right through most fishiness and BS.

You can start here.


I think it was mostly cosmetic mod. I think it's cheaper to buy used 1M than go through the process.

Never a fan of doing major mod work on a car. If you want it bad enough, shop for a 1M.
Current - 2009 Carrera 4S
Current - 2010 128i convertible (wife's car)
Previous - 2009 M-sport 335i coupe
Previous - X5 3.0i with prem/sport
Previous - 2000 ///M roadster
Someone should invent a sarcasm font...

Rock your 135i and be proud! Save up for the day when you upgrade rather than put the money into a mod. Unless that's "your thing."
