Does anyone know when the US dealers will get this and what the prices might be? Is BMW usually competitive (price/performane)with Dinan and the others?

I dont really see getting much if anything from there. No strut brace for 135i's, no seats for us Americans, and no CF hood. Maybe intake and exhaust but it would have been nice to been offered the other goodies from BMW.

Based on what I heard in Chicago, no. BMW basically admitted the tii concept was to show off parts that'll end up in their performance catalog.

I put a LSD in my last truck and the damn thing was worse in snow. The wheel that is not spinning helps to keep it on line, or else your rear end just slides around.

the e82 training manual says the e-diff will be introduced to the 3 series with the n54 sometime in the future, i'm assuming for the 09 my. on paper it looks promising, it's basically regular dsc/dtc regulation without cutting engine power.

Any word on prices? Also, can you combine the intake and/or exhaust with the Dinan reflash and expect Dinan to honor the warranty?

Here's a link to my commercial post. I've got a pricelist (including a 15% discount for 1 addicts members) and the most up-to-date info on availability that I have access to.

Already posted this in the Canadian Forum, but thought I'd repost here cuz its a lot of good info...

Not entirely specific to the 1 series, but it does look like we'll be getting that sweet steering wheel (it only specifically says its available for the 3 series however, I'm just thinking down the road... in Canada at least).

http://www.press.bmwgroup.com/pressc...58B8FE&block=2
http://www.press.bmwgroup.com/pressc...58B8FE&block=3



Though the Press Release doesn't give away much, there seems to be quite a few 1 Series performance parts in the images, including a Limited Slip Diff, Cross Drilled Rotors, the F1 Steering wheel, etc. Its all available from the BMW Canada Press Club webpage

Holy cow, it certainly looks like there will be a clutch pack limited slip... doesn't really matter if not available officially in the US, if it's a genuine BMW part...

Wow. Control arms, struts/springs, LSD and intake - could it really be that simple?

Ummm. I think I may be sold. All BMW needs to do to close the deal is offer the 135i with Sunroof delete for the US market....

Has anyone tried to order a 1 sans sunroof? It seems that wouldn't be too big of an issue for a "sold" vehicle, though there may not be a sunroof delete "credit". Even if it is not possible now, I'm sure it could be done in a year or so.

Having recently read about the 135i and it's performance in magazines and on here (awesome site, reminds me a lot of LS1Tech) I just had to go check one out. Calgary BMW has a pretty much stripper 135i with half the performance catalog installed on it sitting in their showroom. Needless to say the car looked phenomenal, as a car should with $14,000+ in accessories.

I have a photocopy of the pricelist for the items that were on the car, is posting the prices a violation of site rules? As far as I know the dealership isn't a supporting vendor of this or any site. If it isn't, I'd be happy to post up the prices.
