135i at LA Auto Show 2007













I hope BMW brings these brakes to the 135...BMW brakes tend to lack aesthetics.





Pretty slick black exhaust pipes.



















One of the first mods I would do is to remove these nasty amber reflectors.

You're right, its open. Probably to see how much space the trunk has.

my dads 08 550i sport has similar black exhaust tips. they look pretty sick and with the black lines/door trim it looks mean and sporty. another plus is they dont get blackened by the exhaust like the normal silver/metal colored pipes do. they look so good on dark cars.

I don't get why BMW's alternating with the amber reflectors. On the E90 they put it in the headlights, then for the E92 they decided to put it on the wheel well. The 5 followed suit, and now for the 1 they put it back in the headlight?

Must be about bumper design...I'm sure the design team has an explanation.

1 series is nice, but for the money, I would much rather have the E92 anyday.

That's the stock 135i bumper which I believe is the same as the Mtech bumper for the 1 series.

I feel the same way, i can live with the rear lights but those headlights man there awful.

Designers must do this shit on purpose.. When we all look at the the e92 headlights we all say wow aggressive and beautiful. If they see so many people like it why change it to this?

I would have loved the last model of the e46 330ci headlights those are sweet..

Amber looks awful. They should have put them on the fenders like the E92.

+1 or actually more than that on the amber reflectors...they suck. also not a big fan of the rims. they aren't bad, but they make the car look like a little toy to me. not that it isn't little, or not a toy, but you know what i mean...

I don't like the shadow under the front lip of the hood and lip of the trunk. Makes it appear the fitment is not great.
