Nice little hot hatch. The seats upgrade the interior very well

Well done. I think it's huge improvement. The other headlights were too bulky.

I agree, for some reason it fits the coupe better IMHO. But then again I find the E82 design AWESOME!!

Wow, great job! These types of conversions are so impressive. Completely looks right and way better than the old front end.

That looks about a million times better. Nice work. I also like the BMW Performance seats, and am looking forward to hearing the MPE once you install it.

As others have asked for, I'd love to see a list of the parts needed for this conversion. I'm a big fan of OEM retrofits myself...

My thoughts exactly! The 2 front end on the 1 coupe/hatch body looks perfect. Reminds me of the old M-Coupes that I loved. Great work!

Well done ! The upgrade was worth every penny. BMW should have released an update to the hatchback that looked just like this.

I think that BMW deliberately makes the 1-series ugly, in order not to sell too many. With this update it looks like a proper car.

I love the new 2 series as design.
In hatch is absolutely fabulous! Actually, this is the car I am looking to buy: a 2 series hot hatch.
Pumped as an M2 hatch it will be a rally machine.
Absolutely great job mate!

Like the others in here, I would really like to know what you need to do the conversion.
New bumper, headlamps, fenders(?), etc.
