Bringing this 2012 135 back to life!

2012 135 with about 2k on the clock. AW in color.



torn down:


OEM of course
(I could fit in this box)


Hood was damaged too. Also replaced.




Customer wanted some minor things repaired on the left side as well.

Orange Peel matched to perfection.


More pics to come!

Not exactly sure, but it was raining and he ran off the road and hit a fence which is also why the hood was damaged.

Not sure why you said this, but it's funny because this particular 1'er pinstripe was handpainted. It was VERY sloppy. Not sure who's doing pinstriping at that BMW dealership. I have never seen striping that poorly.

But yes, we did remove it all around as the owner requested.

I only said that because pinstripes are so 80's

I think its the guy at vista who does it. Is there a signature type thing, that looks like a smiley face in a helecopter? Usually in the rear or on front qtr panel.

Hmm, i can't really remember what the signature was. But I think you may be right with the face.. This was on the trunk though. I truly hope this guy doesn't do all the BMW's at Vista. It's embarrassing. We have a gentleman who we use at my shop and i feel fairly confident when I say he would most likely put this other guy out of work. And it's a shame because I'm sure dealers are charging some ridiculous price to get the striping.

Especially being hand painted.

Not all, I suppose people request it, or the pick out a select few to have it done to...
