With a keen eye, this car may look familiar. In 2015, Antoine Spignardo made the move from east coast to west, and with him came his 135i, featured in our article, Power & Poise. Recently, though, Antoine moved on to a new 2018 BMW M3, with plans to give it the high fashion treatment. Jeremy Whittle, long-time StanceWorks friend and homepage resident, took hold of the little white coupe, and breathed new life into this well-kept 135i.
I could hear it from a mile off; a raspy but throaty howl bounced between the buildings towards me as I waited for Antoine and his 135i to arrive. The sun was beginning to dip behind the treetops that surrounded the back lot I had chosen to shoot in, and most of the surrounding buildings and foliage were glowing a rather-desirable bright, burning orange. Antoine’s coupe grew louder, and moments later, he pulled into the lot, ready for the shoot.
