BMW - The BMW M135i Looks Sexy As Hell When You Add A 2-Series Front End  - Euro

There’s a lot to like about the BMW M135i. It has a boistrous 316bhp on offer from its sweet turbocharged six-pot, a brilliant rear-drive chassis, and a reasonable starting price of just over £30,000. The catch? It has a face only a mother could love. This Bimmerpost member has come up with a brilliant solution to sorting the 1er’s goofy slab-fronted, buck-teethed look, by adding the front end of the much sexier M235i coupe. In case you can’t tell, it’s wearing the 2er front end in the left side of the image above.

Details of the exact parts that were purchased and what sort of work was necessary for conversion are limited thus far, but if you want to see a full gallery of images for the car, check out the original forum post here. If only they came like this from the factory…
