New to me 130i 6 Speed

Recommended Posts

Hello...My 2007 130i 6 speed finally arrived from Japan to New Zealand. Currently at the groomers getting ceramic coated. Its a white M Sport so I got the painters to paint that grey rear valance black, and removed the 130i and the m badge! Fitted gunmetal Avanti 11 spoke wheels, flat bottom leather and alcantara steering wheel from Lativa, Genuine BMW short throw gear lever  that I scored new sealed bag off Ebay via the USA as well as a Storm Motorwerks weighted gunmetal gear knob from the UK, Pedal Haus aluminum pedal covers from Europe (to be fitted), LUX H8V3 bulbs, new floor mat set, new alcantara hood lining fitted, Gloss black grills etc. Looks like a new car.

This will be my daily for work as I had a desire to row gears, gave my E70 35i M Sport to my wife  so that will remain our family car and  will sell her NZ new X3.

Welcome to the forums. Nice car, thanks for the photos, looks to be in great shape.

There are a large number of fellow 130i owners that regularly contribute, and a number of detailed threads on their various cars and modifications.

Nice. Painting that rear piece black was a good idea, modernises the look IMO.
