Aus spec is tuned down due to the lower quality fuel available in aus compared to the UK.

I was thinking this as well, but then it doesn't really make sense because other Aussie engine specs are the same as the rest of the world... and i thought fuel quality would make more of a difference on the higher powered engines e.g. 135i

From memory the 135i requires premium only, whereas the 120i is supposed to take regular ULP.
A mate of mine has more details on it, that i can follow up on.

Presumably you also mean that they spec 95 RON for the 120i in the UK, whereas they spec 91 RON in Australia??? Does that mean that 91 RON is not available in the UK?
