Congrats best looking 1 series on the planet now
I think it looks good as well, but it is not the only of its kind. There are quite a lot of one series out there with the same conversion.

Sweet sauce. Looks like your conversion made its way to a feature on CarThrottle.com

I have already replied that this looks awesome - but can you imagine an ///M version of this car, looking this good (1 series hatch, RWD, 2er front facia)?

I have no idea what they'd call it - perhaps 1M again - but I always loved the M5 estate version - this would be a smaller version of that and better in a lot of ways.

I would take one in a hearbeat...

I'm torn on this. Sometimes I look at M135i's with M235i front ends and think "YES!!!" and other times it just doesn't excite.

Even though any other front than stock is an upgrade, to pull it off is something else. Great job.

I've seen many bad E36 with E46 front conversions.

While I didn't hate the pre-facelift, it clearly wasn't one of BMW's best looking cars.

The new bumper looks perfect! Looks exactly as it should have come from the factory!! Top job!
