F20 M135i - Kyle - 24-02-2020

Hi Guys,

Before we begin, a bit of background....

Upon advertising the M3, I wasn't really sure what I wanted as a replacement. I considered various options but nothing really tickled my fancy. The decision was then made to upgrade the wife's car for now until I find something worth getting as a daily.

Enter the F20 M135i.

I always thought these were great little cars (just not for me, nothing against them.. I'm just more of a coupe / sedan fan). When I saw this car though, I thought it was perfect for the wife.

Specs:

MY2014
Usual extras and HK sound system.

The car currently has a few aftermarket bits fitted, these will be removed as stock is best for the wife.

A few pics after a quick wash...

The car has also been on the BMW sludge builder service schedule so oil change was performed immediately.

Things to do:

RE: F20 M135i - Danny@DSCmotorsport - 24-02-2020

Congrats on the new wheels.. Just upgrade the chargepipe as these tend to break on the car even in stock trim.


RE: F20 M135i - AshG108 - 24-02-2020

Congrats!

Wonderful cars, as Danny said, the chargepipe first lol...

Looks like its sitting on some lowered springs as well...


RE: F20 M135i - Kyle - 24-02-2020

Thanks guys,

Has H&R springs fitted currently but also has the Adaptive M suspension. Will be returning to stock springs.

Will definitely be changing the charge pipes as well as some other maintenance items, thanks for the advice.

Nice, that Adaptive Suspension makes a different, I enjoy it a lot especially for a dilay drive.

So not much has changed here, there are some maintenance plans for after we're free again  Fencelook 

For now I gave the paintwork some well needed love, I did not have the required products on hand to deal with correcting AW paintwork however so for now it was just a decon and seal

That looks absolutely stunning man!

Some spacers will go a hell of a long way on your ride dude! Check them out, I am sure @Rennzport will be able to assist!
