Jay Borbajo picked up his 2009 BMW 135i in 2015, purchased from a widow whose husband once owned the car, and had only driven 600 miles in it at the time of purchase. The underdog feel of the petite 135i is what Borbajo appreciated about the platform, and has since modified the car to the next level both inside and out, even so far as to make it to SEMA twice!
