F20 M135i
#1
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.

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

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 

Tasty looking clay after just 1/4 of the bonnet
