WOW!!

Adrian, I've talked to Powatone today already. When I told them I wanna do something about the 125, they still remember you and your car.

btw, if you don't mind, can you show me some photos of your exhaust please?

Thanks mate

Cheers,
Piero

I was thinking of the black performance stripes lol
Concerned i might lose my anonymity though !!
Tyres are 30 profile but ride is surprisingly similar to before, my personal preference is a very firm ride though!!

A personal choice, but I would have skipped the stripes

The wheels make the car look close to early design sketches with exaggregated wheel size and a body only few millimeters above ground. Very cool indeed. Probably the best looking car/wheel combination I've seen!

But if you've got 20" and 30-profile you must have a considerably increase in total wheel diameter? I guess you would have to go down to 195 or 205 mm tire width to maintain original measure......

I dont have the stripes, i think that may be overkill lol
The tyres are 235 all around which means they are within the legal requirement here in Oz to be within the maximum possible rolling diameter. I think they are about half an inch bigger than standard which causes the speedo reading to be about 1km higher.

Compared to standard 245/35-18 your diameter is 20mm larger = +3%. By using my best logic sense the speedo should show 3km less at 100 km/h. It wouldn't cause any problem here either.
Would be cool to see more pics!

The brakes look really small now ;-)

Nice combo!

Thanks mate. Wondering how do you feel about the sound of the new exhaust? Coz I will go Powatone next week.

I love the old straight six depth but not something screaming out loud. Is yours one a good choice?

Do you reckon there is any gain in terms of performance?

Cheers,
Piero

Have you considered the Performace Brakes? They will match very well the new wheels

No problems, Im happy with the noise it has produced, given its only the rear muffler that has been changed. Its not excessively loud and doesnt produce a drone in the cabin, but its definitely noticeable at startup, idle and when accelerating. Im sure if you were to fit a 3" pipe from the cat back you would get a significantly greater note and some increase in performance but given how new the model is anything done aftermarket is custom at the moment as their are no specific bolt on kits available at least in OZ. I have seen some in the states for 328i however. i didnt want to go that route at least at the moment until more is available and also from the potential of causing any unwanted CEL's. Someone else mentioned that BMW are going to bring out a performance exhaust but I asked the guys at Rolfe and they havent even got the info on the performance range that has been released overseas. I should meet up with you before you go there and you can check it out for yourself. Im hopefully going to have the BMS Stage1 tune in over the next week so that should be really interesing. I have been in contact with them directly over the past couple of months and keeping up with how its development has gone so not expecting any problems once its in.

I have looked briefly at them but i do agree so will have to look into it more thoroughly. Biggest problem is being so far away our dealers dont even have the info on the performance range yet!!!

I'm not really a fan of those aftermarket alloys tbo. I think I need to see them in the flesh...... Put the kettle on and I'll be over to oz to take a proper look at them
