Congratulations to this week’s Shell fuel card winner, Jeremy Whittle, who won $25 of Shell V-Power NiTRO+ thanks to these gorgeous photos of his 2009 135i!
The car looks great under the glowing yellow and red of the Shell station lights, but the car has quite a range of modifications that make it stand out even more.
“It’s got quite a lot done to it,” Jeremy tells us, with modifications inside and out including “a slew of M Performance parts from the diffuser to trunk spoiler, and steering wheel and shift knob. It’s got full bolt ons on the motor with a fully custom intake manifold, intercooler and exhaust. It’s running a BPM Sport ECU flash and makes 420rwhp. The wheels in the photo are 18” CCW Classics and are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, the best tires I’ve ever owned.”
Jeremy, whose beautiful photographs are found on Instagram under @jeremywhittle, has some more photos of the car over at his website as well. And if anyone had doubts about the cool factor of this build, check out the half cage in place of the rear seats.
Although he’s a San Diego Chapter member now, Jeremy’s club membership started long before picking up this spectacular 1 Series. “Over a decade ago I went to some car meets in Atlanta, Georgia that the Peachtree Chapter put on,” Jeremy says. “It’s a great group of people and tends to be a real community atmosphere where everyone is friendly and happy to help with any problem you may have.”
We hope this 1 Series doesn’t give its driver any trouble though—congratulations Jeremy, and thanks for entering!
