Re: M Performance Chassis Upgrade

Why is stiffer better ? Less body roll=better handling :) e87 118d sapphire black, bmwp goodies, bc br coilovers, stage 2 ecotune remap, m3 control arms, polybushes, 130i front brakes... I would say different handling. I like roll, it's what tells me how close I am to the limits of lat grip. I like...

Re: M Performance Chassis Upgrade

New dampers are not adaptive

Meanwhile I sincerely hope there were no bad feelings spread! :)

Re: M Performance Chassis Upgrade

I haven't tried other low down springs so can't compare but perhaps one can't compare just springs change (using stock damper)? But for the pose obviously HR or Eibach offers better stance (seen those before) but like I said I don't need that much drop... As per handling, the stock M-sport dampers a...

Re: M Performance Chassis Upgrade

That depends on what you are after, none of the above (suspension and muffler) offers the extreme especially from the price performance perspective. But I need the car for everyday use so the increase in stiffness, the drop and the sound are just right for me, not too much... :) Sent from my iPhone ...

Re: 335i M Performance Kit - Installed on the M135i

I was probably wrong both are N55, but tuned differently: 335i at 302bhp while M135i at around 320bhp... So the MPPK is just to bring 335i output to M135i level I guess

Re: 335i M Performance Kit - Installed on the M135i

I thought the MPPK is to bring the 335i N55 engine output (300bhp) to the same level as N55hp used on the M135i (320bhp), or am I wrong?

Re: M Performance Chassis Upgrade

The reason I asked is because I m bringing my car to BMW for M Perf Exhaust fitting next month and the car needs to be kept there for around 4 weeks (not for the actual fitting but thanks to the unbelievably harsh regulations on modding here in Hong Kong they need to apply for inspection and certifi...
