Here we have some pictures and a short video of a BMW 135i modified by the Chicago tuning firm WheelSTO. The song in the video is ‘Give Me That Slow Knowing Smile,’ by singer Lisa Ekdahl and it highlights the new features of the car. Driving through famed Blues Brothers and Batman locale Lower Wacker Drive, this WheelSTO Project 1 version 1.2 was introduced over the summer. Starting off with a six cylinder 3.0-liter twin turbo BMW 135i, the tuners increased the horsepower to 414 from the stock 300 hp. WheelSTO also offers performance packages to boost the BMW model to either 376 or 327 horsepower if desired.
Contributing to the performance increase is a Bastuck quad-pipe exhaust that definitely lets you hear the turbo engine spool up. At the rear is a carbon fiber diffuser from 3D Design, and was specially shipped in from Japan. For suspension and wheels, the BMW 135i received H&R sport springs to drop the car with an Advan wheel package. Advan RZ wheels were fitted on all fours, and measure up to be 19×8 in the front, and 19×9 in the rear. The rims come wrapped in Yokohama Advan AD08 high performance tires, and other tuning companies that helped with the build include IND/A&L, K1 Productions, and VS Motorsports.
