Got my valves cleaned

I got my valves cleaned & my 135i n54 feels soooooo fast. Is it just me or does the car feel faster or is it that the weather is getting colder & playing w/ me. If u are on the fence of getting them cleaned I think u should do it.

It's entirely possible! Gunked up valves can do a lot to hinder performance. I'd say the cold weather also has an impact since colder air coming in = more potential power.

If you live in the Raleigh Durham area I heard that Jordan from Empowered autosport is offering to do it for $300 if you book before Dec 31st. Sounds like a great deal to me.

Definitely worth while. It will feel like a new car all over again. We become accustomed to the slow performance degradation.

Hard to describe until you experience it.

$300 is a steal.
