So I can't think of anything else more to do with my MR2. Since I work for a german car company I figured I may as well try my luck with a german car. The problem is I wanted something unique, quick and modifiable. After several deals fell through on this factory ordered 1m I jumped on the opportunity to buy it.

This is the beginning of hopefully a very long friendship, sorry that the thread doesn't start off with a bang but I'll be taking things slow.

Here is the car in the showroom, some of you may remember this my space angle when I posted pictures of the car in the early summer.

The first mod was the black kidney grills

A sueded steering wheel insert as well as a snap in adapter so that I can surf facebook have been my next mods. Waiting on getting pics.

The car is now parked for the season, expect more updates throughout the winter as I do some more serious mods.

I currently have a 135i that is just about completely done up, should get together for a meet some time! Also I am curious, is there any specific reasons other than LSD for picking up a 1M over a 135i? I love how it looks a lot more agressive but I cannot justify spending another ~20-30K for LSD/Suspension and some cosmetics. If you planned on changing suspension and such, woudn't it of been a lot cheaper to go with a 135i and get it up to par with a 1M?

It basically has the entire M3 drivetrain including brakes, suede interior, wide body, concave 19inch competition package m3 wheels (which are packed away in boxes lol), total bargain for what you get. Another huge difference is how rare it is. I could sell the car today a year later for more than I paid for it, that doesn't happen to often.

As for the tow hook, there are sooo many lowered black/black bimmers in town. i wanted to add something to the car to make it different. The nice thing about the hook is that it takes 10 seconds to remove if I get tired of it. :)

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e306/Redlyne/photo-82_zps9518f81f.jpg

Here is the new n55 mid pipe. No cats means more power and a very profound turbo noise when accelerating.

The car is night and day after the mods. I've changed maps on my tune to run around 14.5psi. I've got a dual cone intact on order so I'll update once I get it. Hoping to do a dyno pull after as well.

Nice build man! My 135i got destroyed in a flood and I moved on to an M3. I would of gotten the 1M in a heartbeat if they weren't selling for over $65k used.

If any N54 guys are following this, I have a set of BNIB AR design DPs with 02 sensors for sale. PM me if interested.

Ya it's been smashed and bashed. Because there are so few of these cars around it's easy to know the story of each one. There was also one lost in the flood which ended up being picked up by someone in Van.

Gotcha, makes sense as it is priced so much lower then all the others on the market.
