MY M135i WITH M235i FRONT END CONVERSION, HOPE YOU LIKE IT. I DO.

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Here's some pics I took today of my M135i with the M235i front end on it, I previously posted pics on this forum of what it looked like before. I've been driving it a couple of months with the M235i front and the attention and thumbs up the car gets is unbelievable. Only thing I'm waiting for now is my M performance exhaust which should be here tomorrow. Anyway hope you all like it cause i certainly do.


M135i with M235i Bumper Conversion




And here's what it looked like before

If that was the real front end of the 135i, I would've gotten it over the 235i I currently have.

looks amazing!
nice work!

Can you list all the parts you need for the conversion?

Also, what brand is the splitter on m135i bumper before the conversion?

Thanks.

Wow if this looks like the upcoming facelift of the F20, I might switch back to the 1-Series from my current F30! Looks stunning

Makes you wonder why BMW did not do this themselves!

Why on Earth BMW did you make the same mistake twice and give the 1' an ugly face?

Well done. Now the looks match the dynamics. Enjoy and be safe.

Nice project, too bad the useful hatch body is not available in the US.
