The BMW fanbase were a little shocked when the new M135i xDrive came along in 2019 – with a transverse 2.0 litre 4cyl turbo engine, AWD and a dual clutch gearbox it was quite a departure from the old model.
Not least in the looks department, with a more upright, cab-forward design due to the new layout meaning it had lost some of the aggression of the older M140i.
But thankfully there’s now an answer for those who want their BMW hot hatch to have a little bit ‘extra’ – Motech. Motech have been tuning cars in the UK for years and their older M140i-based model was a huge success here in the BOTB Competition.
So we’re happy that we can now offer their M135i based package, featuring a Maxton Design bodykit, new forged wheels, lowered suspension and a Remus exhaust to give the M135i a little more aural fortitude.
It all combines to give the M135i a far more aggressive and focused look, one that it was crying out for.
Here’s the list of additions in full:
BMW M135i XDRIVE, METALLIC PAINT, M135I PLUS PACKAGE AND TECHNOLOGY PACKAGE
EIBACH SPRINGS 25MM F 20MM R, 10MM MOTECH SPACERS
19” BOLA FLC WHEELS w/MICHELIN PILOT SPORT 4S TYRES & TPMS
