2010 e82 118d

Post by Dloonat » Wed Sep 06, 2017 5:57 pm

Hi all,

Ive been lurking on here now for a while now and i've finally owned my 1 series for a year so thought i'd introduce myself.

Well, im Dan and ive just turned 21. i got this car when i was 20 and this is my second car.

Ive come from a chav banging vauxhall corsa c in which i modified. quite a big step up to a bmw.

First car

i was initially looking for a 120d but because of my age and licence type the quotes i were getting were ridiculous so i had to settle with a 118d which im not complaining about still an amazing car.

So the Car.

-Bmw e82 118d m sport (manual) mid 2010.
- Space Grey
-261m Wheels
-Red leather interior w/ front seats heated and bolster adjustment
-Xenons headlights
-auto fold mirrors
-Front/Rear parking Sensors
-Cruise control
-Auto wipers
-Auto Lights
-Climate Control
-Professional Radio

There is probably more but cant remember everything off top of my head. i know when i bought it the dealer i got it from gave me a sheet where the options exceeded £6000.

Things on to do list our

- carbon spoiler
-lowering (still cant decide whether i should go just spring or coilovers as i know the saying from the corsa buy cheap buy twice)
-Wheel refurb or new wheels
-sideskirt splitter/extensions

- really want to add carbon to interior but ever since i bought my car all the carbon interior pieces have vanished so just have to wait till some come up for sale.

Hey, congrats on the Car and a very good car in deed!

I just have a quick question and wonder if you could tell me which bulb you purchased to change the yellow halos to white?

Thanks in advance

Nice clean looking motor there Dan, welcome to BBMW!
We are well known for being able to empty your wallet faster than you thought was possible once you start modding... :lol:
Some free ones to start with:

1. Remove camber pin to get more -ve angle on the front.
2. CDV delete to smooth up the gear change

Then have a look around to see what else you fancy doing (there's loads) and enjoy the new motor!
Cheers,
Bish
