Nimesh Mehra had his 2007 BMW 130i handed down to him from his parents. Even though he really wanted a Japanese car, he slowly fell in love with the Bimmer. Using the unique platform as a starting point for a unique look, he has had to think outside of the box in order to make up for the lack of aftermarket support, and he seems to be doing a damn good job.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION:
