Mare, fantastic. Exactly the same colour scheme I'm going for (mine gets built next month).

What wheels are they?

And how did you get the bottom left and right front bumper black inserts all black? They come with a chrome strip standard, I've also ordered the all black kidney grills.

Thanks buddy!

The wheels are from the bmw m performance accessories range. You can find it here -> http://www.bmw.com/com/en/owners/acc...ies_3door.html

I had the front bumper inserts, wheels, and mirror caps spray painted at my local BMW M dealership's workshop. I definitely prefer the bumper inserts black instead of chrome!

Are those wheels available black as OEM or did you repaint them?

Lovely looking M-Lite, M performance stripes on the bumper look suprisingly cool, I've never been a racing stripes kind of guy, but they look ace.

I love the 405M alloys, my only issue is that I don't think the car looks quite right on 19'' alloys. The wheels look a bit big for the car. The wheels themselves look great, especially in black but personally the size looks ever so slightly odd (in still shots anyway)

I'm not huge on stripes too but I saw a white m6 with those bumper stripes and I was sold!

I wouldn't get smaller wheels! To each his own right? haha

Thanks mate. So far I'm getting the wheels (stock 18" ones) and mirror caps sprayed black by the BMW dealer, I'll add the bottom inserts to the list.

What colour did you get the painted? Did you get all of them painted (left middle and right)? Did you get painted to match the M Performance black kidney grills?

About the bumper, I only painted the strips on the left and right that otherwise would've been chrome if I left it alone. I'm not sure what the paint code is, but it is very close to the black finish on the m performance black kidney grills. I think it's jet black?

What colour is your m135i? alpine white? haha
