2008 BMW 135i: Attention to Detail...It Matters
August 25, 2008
Here's a detail that matters. Something as simple as an exhaust tip can make or break a car's appearance. This is a shot of the exhaust tips on our 135i. Notice that they're dark. And it's not because they're dirty. No, it's because BMW uses an anthracite-colored coating which makes them always look the same -- whether they're clean, covered in road grime or exhaust soot. They look good. Always.
