Well Sorted BMW 135i Featuring ARC-8 Wheels

Aloha from O’ahu! Our photographer (@purtastudios) had a chance to get a closer look at this well sorted BMW 1 Series with ARC-8 wheels located in beautiful Hawaii. The car owner, Austin (@austinaslink), track prepped his 135i while living in the Pacific Northwest. When he was stationed in Hawaii for the Air Force, the car followed. Although there isn’t a raceway for track enthusiast on the islands, Austin was able to connect with a great Euro car group to share his passion. The car runs a set of 18″ ARC-8 wheels in satin black, wrapped in Federal tires. An interesting story about Austin is that he works for air traffic control on the Air Force base and commutes by kayak then bike to work. He has to give the right away to whales, submarines and destroyers passing through the channel. Hey, it beats sitting in traffic for an hour!
