Decided to start a build thread to help myself keep track of my progress with this new project. I previously had an e90 with an on3 kit and some other mods for about 2 years and ended up selling it to try out the corvette life. Picked up a c5z06 which I enjoyed for about 6 months and the ls6/t56 platform along with the plastic interior was enough for me to sell it after a short period of time and get a car I've wanted for a while, e82 with a n54. Old e90 Old c5z 11/10/17 Flew out to Maryland to buy this SGM/Coral red 08 135i with 55k miles Car was mostly stock other than the minor mods it had which were jb4 / ar downpipes / bms intakes / h&r super sport springs The car had been sitting outside for a few months which led to sun faded headlights and some clear coat fading on the roof of the vehicle. Easy fixes and the rest of the vehicle checked out as well as the price I was able to get it for to include recent receipts for new turbos/water pump/tstat. Drove it back to Missouri with no issues and instantly started to put a list together of needs/wants. 11/13/17 A local friend of mine is parting out his 135is and I was able to swap tail lights with him for the dark lines, these make the car look so much newer. Tomorrow I'm driving down to Oklahoma to pick up a used jp works kit with pretty much everything besides the turbo which works out for me since I plan to get one from a friend of mine. I will also be getting wheels from someone else in Oklahoma with pictures to follow. Future power/fuel plans: Jp workz kit 6466 gen 2 bb Vrsf 7.5 race intercooler I pre ordered the vtt single barrel shotgun kit Bmr 450 bucketless fuel pump Trans cooler kit from @1slow_e36 Xhp stage 3 Manual boost controller Mhd flash only Cp/bov Future exterior mods: Custom headlights 5d carbon high gloss wrapped roof Front lip Coilovers 15x10 et44 forgestar f14 17 or 18 forgestar f14 for the fronts I'm sure I'm missing a bunch of little things but I'll be sure to note it. That's it for now, happy to be back on the n54 platform for now and can't wait to get this build started.
