    Everything changes when he starts discussing possibilities with Performance Technic owner Joey Gaffey, who suggests transplanting the M3 E9X V8 under the hood into the 1 Series. That's when the madness of transforming the 135i into a 1M Coupe by using the suspension from the M3 E9X and then fitting the V8 begins.

    Obviously, buying a stock 1M Coupé or even an M3 E92 with low miles would have been cheaper, but when you get the modification fever, it's non-stop. Plus, you get the satisfaction of having a truly unique car.
