Re: m235i charge pipe

I fitted Forge after OEM one disintegrated. Bit more turbo noise and I know it will not explode again!

Re: ***finished*** my clutch and flywheel today. Pics of clutch fitting added

OP do you know if this F10 550i clutch / DMF would fit a 2014 M135i?

Want to uprate for longevity.

Man-box - any uprated clutch / DMF recommendations!

My M-lite has done 75k miles and there’s some driveline shunt / clutch is snappy.

I’m going to keep the car well into the future and wondered if there are any uprated clutch/DMF suggestions. Remapped.

Thanks.

Re: "High" mileage M135i F20s - stay away?

My 2014 M-lite (f20) has done 78k miles in 4 years from new. 50k of those remapped and driven hard (only tracked once, thanks - I now see the point of a track car). It still pulls unfeasibly strong. But the steering wheel knock has been there for months and is getting worse. I'm hoping that Marcopol...

Remapped 70k M135i briefly stuttering on cold take-off

As the title, really. Start my 2014 M-lite in the morning (facing a 1: 5 hill) and for the initial take-off, no matter how I feather the throttle or clutch, it sometimes stalls dead. Only reliable method is >3000 revs and slip the clutch. Is it the engine? Or the clutch wearing out a 70k miles, 60k ...

Re: M140i Manual Box issue

I have a DMS remapped 2014 M135i Manbox on 73k miles. Gearbox into 1st is fine (as it ever was, that is).

Re: Just bought a bluespark box. What about charge pipe?

My OEM charge pipe exploded flat out chasing a TT RS uphill on the M5 south. Car had done 70k miles, with DMS remap for 50k of those. Subdued loud BANG and engine dead, overtook several cars getting to the hard shoulder. Replaced with Forge Motorsport aluminium one. Do not want that to happen again.

Re: Bilstein B8 dampers with Motech Eibach springs

Yeah I bought them separately but then I didn't realise how important the dampers were.

Now at 70k miles, and it's getting quite harsh - I am looking at the Birds package.

Re: Extreme inside tyre wear ?

Mine were the same, with LSD.

Camber was well out.

When winter set came off, 12k miles later - normal wear pattern.

Long time resurrect - does anyone know which fuse for the footwell power socket? My dashcam power has gone, works fine in gearlever socket.

Re: Ticking Noise - BMW obsessed with top mounts

Yes! Identical noise started last week, on mild right lock and speed dependent. Unconnected to anything else. Comes and goes but there 70% of the time now. Doesn’t sound mechanically painful but annoying++
