BMW_E87_135i_Cab_Beyern_mesh_18x85et40-18x95et45--2As we said in our Best Mods for E82 1-Series guide, one of the simplest and most effective visual mods you can make to any car is a set of wheels. Since the E82 1-Series has really high offsets, getting the fitment right can be a challenge – and that’s where Sr Mod Expert Elliott comes in. Anthony L, who owns this 135i Cabrio, wanted a set of wheels for BMW 1-Series that would suit the looks of the 1er without looking too “out of place” or breaking the bank. Elliott had just the thing in mind.

The deep polished lip and the mesh wheels is a look that’s both sporting and classically “BMW”-esque.
