Once and a while a car rolls through our lot that just makes us stop and go, “DAAAAAAMN!!”. With bulging bolt-on fender flares, a power-bulge 1M Style hood and ridiculously beefy Nitto Tires on some preposterously deep dish wheels, this is one E82 BMW 135i you’re sure to take notice of.
While we don’t know the specifics of this build, we figured we’d still check out some key points. To start, up front, the M-Sport front bumper has been fitted with a Carbon Fiber M-Sport Style Front Splitter which has been fitted with a massive lower plane for both aggressive looks and in theory at least, downforce.
The madness continues. We’re not sure on what exactly the car is lowered, but our bet is that this E82’s Suspension is a set of coilovers.
The custom fender flares are of the direct bolt on variety and give the 1 a rather exaggerated appearance – but being someone who likes a ridiculous track-oriented setup on a street car, personally, I enjoy it. The specs on the deep dish wheels is a mystery, but there’s no question about what kind of tires this car is on.
A Carbon Fiber Diffuser for BMW 1M Rear Bumpers has also somehow been worked onto this version and ties together the car’s over-the-top aesthetic.
While we don’t know what’s under the hood or what kind of power it’s making. We’re guessing it’s a bit more than stock, because you don’t throw a big Vargas Turbo decal on your car unless you actually have an upgraded turbo underhood.
The Hood is another great piece – the E92 M3 style power bulge hood and matching hood vents ties together the road-going race-car look this thing has going.
We hope you enjoyed the photos of this beast we spotted in the wild, and we thank the owner whoever they are for letting us take a look at this monstrous machine.
