From W202 C180 as his first car, then changed to this BMW E87, his passion about clean and proper car made this E87 to look simple and fresh.
This BMW e87 120i is the first 1 Series line up that BMW made. 1 series itself replaced the 3 series as the smallest and the cheapest car line ups in BMW’s product line. The 1 Series Coupe also marketed as the successors of BMW 2002. The purpose of the inventions is to fulfill the needs of it’s compact design to drive around busy town with the BMW’s great performance. But Sadly Indonesian market doesn’t have more interest in this compact product of BMW. Indonesians have more interest in Japanese city car because the price is cheaper than this bavarian compact. So, that’s make this 1 series is rare to find in Indonesia
Because of its rarity, that brings Adiraka to chose this 1 series to be his new car last year. The year is newer and the fuel consumption is more efficient to his last car, the Mercedes Benz W202 C180. Seeing Adiraka came into Indonesian Car Culture proves that age won’t affects the taste. This simple style BMW or you may call OEM+ is also a prove that a simple touch will affects the whole game.
The modification that Adiraka put to this BMW is not much, but he will add more modifications like adding an eisennman exhaust, top spoiler, retrofit paddleshift and also M Tech Steering Wheels in the future. The mod of this E87 is BBS CH 19×8,5-9,5 inch et 35-40 covered with 225/35 front and 235/35 rear. To get a good stance, Adiraka chose STD coilover to lower the car in a good and proper ways.

For Interior, Adiraka loves to keeping it OEM. In future he like to add M Tech Steering wheels to the interior. He liked it original and simple because the interior’s design of this E87 was a great piece of work of BMW.
