Smile My 2011 BMW 135i

This is the second BMW I have owned. I just got her today. My 2011 BMW 135i. Not sure what mod to do first with it.

Looking good! Most mods people go with next are tune + suspension + wheels + smaller exterior accents. In my opinion, suspension+wheels makes the biggest influence on exterior aesthetics

I am not sure exactly what to do yet. Debating on which tune is the big one. JB4 or Cobb. Not sure which one is best for the N55 engine.

They both have their pros and cons. If you don't plan on doing anything more than FBO I would just go Cobb for the easy plug and play.

Do both gain about the same performance for the most part? I hear mixed things or how much you actually get from both.

Congrats on the new ride! If performance is your priority, definitely go the route of a tune, intake, downpipe, and FMIC. Throwing an exhaust somewhere in the mix will always give you happy results. Lowering the car and new wheels will probably provide the biggest visual change.

I always hear people talking about down pipes. Is that like taking out the cat converter or is this something completely different. Just trying to think ahead for car inspections where I live to register the car. What is FMIC? I am thinking tune would be best start.

Easy enough to install? I have never had a tuner for a car before and Cobb I know is a flash.

I had a cobb on my wrx. I had a shop install my jb4 along with flex fuel wires on my n55, and its been great. The car threw some codes until it adjusted to the piggyback and the e85, but now everythings dialed in and shes running really strong. Im only jb4, bms intake, and e85 and she pulls really hard, i cant imagine what shes going to be like with a downpipe. Customer services from terry and the burger tuning guys is great also. If i ever go bigger turbos, i would probably switch over to a cobb and a protune, but for now i think i made a good pick for my tune

Pretty much, a downpipe will replace your catalytic converter with a pipe without one. Basically allows for better flow for your turbo without being restrictive. FMIC is a front mount intercooler.

I want to do the down pipe, but it will not pass inspection where I live by the state sadly.

Thank you! I really wanted the LeMans Blue, but the Deep Sea Blue is really starting to grow on me.
