Re: Birds B1 vs ACS vs Bilstein B12 kits

I have a 2014 M135i. Remapped by DMS with Quaife. First 3 years had Eibach Pro-kit springs and Bilstein B8s. Handling was superb, hardly any waft and solid as a rock. But the ride was a bit harsh TBH, especially over broken tarmac. Had Birds B1 fitted last year (shocks and springs) and first off, it...

Re: LSD

- You can really feel the rear end "pushing" now - and you can drive the car harder into the corner and through a corner on the throttle. I love the feel of the car tightening the line on the throttle as the back wants to kick out, but the grip is now there to drive it through without loss of power...

Re: LSD

I leased my 2014 M135i and pretty much straight away changed shocks and springs. After a year it was remapped. Six months later had a Quaife fitted. This has been the single best mod to the car, even for normal road use. Feeding power to the road exiting any corner, and feeling it - transformational...

Re: Sudden loss of power on motorway...

It would surely not restart OK with failed charge pipe.

Aftermarket steering rack?

Needing a new steering rack at 70k miles (if Marco Polo's fix does not do the trick) - but wondering whether there is any alternative to original BMW one. Is there a better aftermarket rack?

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.

Me too! Remapped and quaife and I want to change clutch and DMF. Did you get one in the end?

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.
