We have video, photos and details featuring the WheelSTO Project 1 v1.2, a new take on the BMW 135i. Find out more inside.
Chicagoland tuners WheelSTO have released a video showing off their work on the BMW 135i. Set to "Give Me That Slow Knowing Smile," by singer Lisa Ekdahl, the 90-second video shows some of the vehicle's assembly, and video of the car cruising through famed Blues Brothers and Batman locale Lower Wacker Drive.
The WSTO Project 1 v1.2 was introduced over the summer, but significant work has been added since its reveal. Mods include a Bastuck quad-pipe exhaust that "really lets the turbo engine sound come through." A carbon fiber rear diffuser from 3D Design was shipped in from Japan, attaching perfectly to the stock bumper. H&R Sport Springs drop the car significantly. Gunmetal-finish Advan RZ wheels measure 19x8 +45 and 19x9 +50 are wrapped in Yokohama Advan AD08 performance tires.
Other companies involved in the project include IND/A&L, K1 Productions, and VS Motorsports.
WheelSTO started off with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder BMW 135i that produced 300-horsepower, and boosted power to 414-horsepower at the wheel. The company says 376 and 327-horsepower editions are also possible.
