Hi all

This is my new (to me) '07 130i M Sport that i picked up a couple of weeks ago to replace my 3year old Skoda Fabia vRS.

I'm totally smitten by this car and it amazes me how similar this car is compared to my previous E36 M3 evo & E46 M3 which I also loved ;) and for a fraction of what I paid for my new M3!

Liking the red leather in the M3!

Great choice of cars, similar to my previous although where the BMWs are concerned I had the 330d and now the 118d.

One of the best interior/exterior colour combos on your M3, if I may say so. Dad's neighbour had the same as that and it was a stunner. I very nearly purchased his car when I sold my Z4 in December.

PS, I also had the Octy VRS wheels on my Fabia

Do/did you ever frequent briskoda forum? I was texasjohn on there too...

Updated pics with 208M wheels and Pirelli SottoZero 225/40/18 winter tyres now fitted.

Since my car is lowered, I've always thought the std. 208M's didn't fill the arches from certain angles so I've fitted 12mm spacers front and rear to give a more aggressive stance on OEM wheels and have no rubbing issues to report so far.

It's been a while since I've had 208M's on my car and I must say with the new aggressive stance how nice these wheels look on a 1er.

Was bidding on some new alu trim on ebay last week which would have been my backup but lost the auction and then was going to experiment on mine, especially as I have a dent on the ashtray where I dropped the TomTom! :roll:

I don't mind the silver but there's a side of me that wants real Carbon Fibre or Alcantara and another side is saying "When do you ever look inside the car when you are driving it?" so is it worth the hassle and expense!

Alcantara looks nice on yours but need to see what can be done with the centre part before I commit to doing something with mine.

More pictures to follow :D
