120d (E87) Exhaust Upgrade

Hi,

Looking to upgrade the exhaust on my 120d (post-fl 177hp), to a twin-pipe... mostly for sportier look, (but would be great if I could get a few more hp out of it)

Any suggestions? - not looking to spend too much, (preferably under 200)

thanks

Re: First Mod Advice

Hi guys, Just picked up my first BMW, it’s a 2008 5D 120D in mineral grey with 67k on the clock. Only had a brief browse of this forum so not up to scratch with all the abbreviations yet. It come with the CIC system which I’m not the biggest fan of but I guess it’s better than nothing. The radio is...

Re: 120d Remap Recommendations?

Hi, Looking to remap my E87 120d (177)... I've had quotes from a few places quoting around 215-220bhp and around 320 lbs/ft torque, (with minimal upgrade of other parts) Can anyone recommend any decent tuners, ideally, located around the midlands? - also has anyone had the 233bhp performance remap ...

Re: Subs to go with the Alpine upgrade

I've had the Alpine upgrade in about 2 months now (the new under the glovebox one). I've had it coded but i'm not overly impressed with it tbh. I'm now thinking of upgrading the underseat subs...any recommendations please? The standard BMW speakers in my E87 M-Sport were atrocious... I've done an A...

Re: 120d (E87) performance mods

Best bang for your buck is the remap, although 233 sounds like pub figures on a happy dyno. If you get anywhere close to a genuine 220bhp I'd be very pleased. After that, the law of diminishing returns kicks in hard. If you're after better lap times, I'd be spending my money on tyres+brakes, then s...
