125I MODS AND UPGRADES

Post by BOXA08 » Fri Dec 12, 2014 11:21 am

Hi all.

So i have now picked up my beloved 125i and i loooove it.

I want to start making the car look a bit more appealing and quick.

Can people maybe post pics to give me an idea what they have done to there 1 series coupes and what i can do to mine.

Also in reagrds to modifications has anyone had an Air-filter added to there car if so was it a K&N? and how does it feel is there much difference?

Has anyone had BMW performance Kit added to there car as well?

What else can i do to the engine etc apart from a remap?

Thanks

Service, remap, then I'd leave the engine alone. Air filters and exhausts will make more noise, but usually very little power.

OP - FWIW, having met Twenny and seen/heard his car 1st hand, you'd do well picking his brains/following his lead etc for fettling your car. BP

Umm no, this jump had a sloped landing so it was air-born but good landing.

Did the bumper on the 2016 romp on more like a evil kenevil double jump!!! That was also air born but no soft landing, just a sheer jump followed by another one which is what my bumper landed on. Sh!t my pants while screaming like a girl!!!!

Carbon splitters ruined and £200 repair bill.

Ahhh memories 🤣
