Re: Audi S3 to 135i (N54) - Suggestions

N55 is a hell of a lot more reliable than the N54, but being forced induction it's still not as reliable as the N52, simply because it has more things to go wrong. If you drive a 125i and 135i (N55) back to back you'll know what to do.. the 125i is a quick car, the 135i is a lunatic. If you plump fo...

Re: Audi S3 to 135i (N54) - Suggestions

When I was looking good 125i's were close to 135i N55 money, and the 125i even with a remap is not even close in terms of raw performance, although the N52 is a wonderful engine in its own right.. 130i's, good ones seem hard to come by these days, mainly high milers or ones that simply haven't been ...

Re: Potential 135i owner. Unsure on pricing

Surely no more than than £6k?! what's the point of paying £9k for that car, spending potentially 3k getting it sorted, then you've got a high mileage 135i worth max £9k anyway that you will have to run into the ground and probably spend shed loads more on to keep going. Madness, if you've got £10-12...

Have it done properly, smart repairs are what dealers/traders use as a temporary fix to shift cars.

Hi couple of garages I travel to around the midlands for exhaust work are RJ Performance Exhuasts in Birmingham or PMP Cars in Nuneaton.

PMP did the MPE mod and res delete for me on my N55 135i sounds incredible
What is the MPE mod? I guess you don't mean just fitted an MPE?

Re: Sourcing a BMWP Exhaust - E82 125i (or 135i) Coupe

I want an eisenmann but not sure I can justify £1000 for what essentially seems to be just a back box. One thing I will say is that with a decat, high flow rear exhaust and centre resonator still in place my car is loud! I wanted the centre resonator deleted but the exhaust maker convinced me to try...

Re: 2010 135i DCT N55 remap

Maybe I don’t appreciate the PPK because I haven’t driven a 135i without installed but £612?!? Absolutely not! The throttle response on my de-cat PPK 135i is still not great without sport button pressed, even then it’s not what it should be. Had an interesting email reply from wrench studios who I k...

Re: 2010 135i DCT N55 remap

Was already installed when I bought the car, I’d say the throttle response is very poor though so I’m guessing it makes little to no difference.

DMS guarantee the throttle response with their custom map will be vastly improved

Re: 2010 135i DCT N55 remap

PPK software already installed, in this configuration the car does not perform anything close to how it could.

MHD, I’ll check them out... I’ve seen them mentioned but never really researched them.

2010 135i DCT N55 remap

Hi guys, Gonna get my 135i mapped in the next couple of months.. Looking for recommendations, I’m willing to travel, so location isn’t an issue.. Was set on BW Chiptune, but have since spoken to DMS and wrench studios who also seem to have good reps. I’ve seen how knowledgable Jason from chiptune is...

Re: 120i M Sport Coupe ideas

For track use a decent suspension setup and good tyres should be priority. Perhaps uprated discs/pads and braided hoses/fresh brake fluid also. I know the 2.0L 4 pot has a few common problems aswell if you have a bit of a google search, I’d see if I could pre-emp any of them issues with preventative...

Re: Sourcing a BMWP Exhaust - E82 125i (or 135i) Coupe

I couldn’t get one for my 135i On top of that used ones for sale were stupidly priced! Tried a few dealers and gave up, You can get them from the states but at double the cost of UK dealer prices before they were discontinued. If you do find anyone with stock that’s not stupidly priced please do let...
