AMS Playing around with a 135i...pics inside

One of our friends at the shop picked up a 135i and brought it in for some suspension work so we thought we would take some pics of the car while it was here. He got a bit over zealous in a turn and messed up his drivers rear corner but we got him all patched up. This is also the car will be using to prototype many of our parts for the 135i.

First came the KW variant 2 suspension and sway bar




Now install the buggers. You can see the hub is out as we had to replace it. Curb - 1 135i hub - 0 LOL









And now the finished product and some really nice pictures from our in house photographer, Rich!

If possible we are going to try to make them one in the same. If it requres a separate part we will look into it based on demand. We are approaching them as the same car and trying to make parts that will fit both when possible.

How fun was that rear sway bar install?

I'd have to say that the rear sway install on the 335 was probably the hardest thing that I've done.

Hey Eric,

Whats the reason behind using the KW V2 instead of the KW V3 or TC KLINE?

From the work i've seen from you guys, a daily driver was never a priority

it was actually at the customers request. This is his daily driver actually...as much as we wanted to make it a race car...he wasn't too keen on it LOL
