My BMW 125i Finally has arrived

Hey Guys,

Just thought I would share a few shots of my 125i that just arrived at the dealer. I take delivery next week Wednesday of her!!!!

Some mods are being done to her with a few M Performance parts including the M Performance Exhaust and Black-line taillights. I really cannot wait for her to be handed over to me.

Sorry about the photos, they were taken from an iPhone 4S!

All you need to add is the BMW Performance side skirt decals and the rear spoiler to set it off.
Is that the M Performance exhauste?, It looks like the same one mine was supplied with when I picked mine up last week

Hey Aus, this is literally a couple of hours after she was delivered by the carrier service. There are no mods yet done to the car on the pics posted. Next week I should have all the requested mods completed and will put up some pics.

I am not yet sold on the side skirt decals, I just get the feeling that over time they will get worn out and faded.

The reason why I like the sill decal-
It elongates the F20 making the rear look a bit more muscular and visually it also enhances the side view fitting well with the long bonnet.
The decal also looks great on a white F20 Sport.
It is made from a strong vinyl, so it should wear well.

Very inspiring car!

I feel like I want to jump into your car and drive it on empty mountain roads for miles and miles. Just like a perfectly balanced and prestine BMW should.

Enjoy it for every moment with it, it's almost impossible to beat as total package it offers.

Practical, economical, and a fist in the face whenever you want it!

Thanks a million for the kind words.

I went past the dealer today to have a look at how my car was progressing.

I really wish I had taken some snaps of the progress made thus far but in my greatness I completely forgot to take as I was drooling over the car.

So far the dealer has fitted the blackline taillights, performance exhaust and rear spoiler/fins (I got these colour matched to the bottom diffuser and it came out better than expected). The combination of these modifications has made the rear look SO SO aggressive yet still keep the classiness/elegance of the vehicle.

At idle the tone of the performance exhaust is deeper and better balanced to the original exhaust - one can immediately tell the difference (it put a smile on my face). I have not yet had a chance to hear what the Performance Exhaust sounds like under load/throttle.

I am still waiting for the dealer to complete the window tint, front grills, carbon mirrors and the A.S.S. deactivation to the FOB.

I will get some pics up when I take delivery this Thursday! Cannot wait for the finished product.

I will definitely put up some videos when I get her. On Friday my detailer is coming through to give her a nice pamper - SwissVax Crystal Rock Wax FTW.

Taillights : (converting to Euros) - 260.00e
M Performance Exhaust: (converting to Euros) - 540.00e

All my modifications are being installed for free.

Hope that helps!
