Engine dropped



MOTIV's PI kit should arrive here tomorrow as well!

What's up, folks? I've been lurking for a while and figured that I might as well start posting! I purchased my sparkling graphite metallic '08 135i with 61k miles last October and I'm glad I picked her over an LS2 GTO. I told myself that I wasn't going to mod at all, but that barely lasted a month haha. Well, on to the iphone pics!

My two previous cars before the switch include an '06 330i and a bolt-on/tune/wheels '99 Corvette...





On to my '08 135i...

Pick-up


With 61k miles, it was time for new plugs and coils



Shout out to Einser M for being awesome... answering all of my questions and hooking me up with parts!

**********s is an awesome company to deal with! I started off with Wagner’s EVO I FMIC and a Cobb AP last December.




A couple of weeks later, I received an anodized Evolution Racewerks chargepipe with a Tial Q BOV.


Soon after, a discussion with Einser M on whether BMS’ white cones are actually white ensued. He was right, they’re grayish more than white lol.



Felt the need for more so I ordered VRSF’s 3” catless DPs, perfect fit!


Didn’t feel like shelling major $$ so I went on getbmwparts and ordered N55 mids.


Took a break halfway through the exhaust work.


Still on sleeper status... tintless and running style 264 wheels

Forgot this pic! Running COBB's S2 sport +fmic map on 93, will do more logs once the dme adapts fully and will go aggressive

I switched to the 261m wheels recently. I like them a lot but ended up going with a VMR set. Unfortunately the A/S 3s I bought aren't getting here until next week. Sssooooooo, I'll be staring at the new wheels for a little bit longer.




Tried to pinpoint an incessant, annoying rattle that turned out to be the dreaded downpipe/subframe problem. I tried to re-adjust the downpipes multiple times to no avail so I ended up modifying the heat shield a little bit. I also wrapped the area of the downpipe that was rubbing with some exhaust wrap I had laying around.




Afterwards, I did the natural thing and went to the track . Kinda disappointed in my times... 60ft could be better with track tires though. Pro-tune coming soon!!

Welcome! I have a LS2 GTO that I absolutely love, TVS1900 and 503 RWHP 495 ft/lbs of torque @ 8psi. I told myself I was going to leave the 135 stock for as long as I could. It lasted about 1 month. haha.

CGMike, how are you liking the GTO? I was seriously considering an 05-06, love the ls motors!

Thanks, man! I was thinking of the Bilstein B12 set or the OEM BMW performance suspension. But my new tires are a little tall so I'm not exactly sure how it's going to work out yet. Rear subframe bushing inserts and an e92 m3 swaybar is next on the list though.

The new tires I ordered came in unexpectedly today... So the new wheels are on!

I'm currently running a square set-up... VMR V701s, 18x8.5 et45 all around with 235/40 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s. I'm trying to avoid rubbing in the front and I kinda want the extra sidewall to deal with the crappy roads here in GA. The Michelin's are actually just as wide as my previous 245/35 Bridgestone runflats which was a nice suprise.

Love the ride so far

Not really feelin the wheels, but afterall it is your car.... I still like it though, and you're going the right direction with it. I'm slightly frustrated with the drag slips though... Trapping 111 with a 12.8, and 2.2 60ft... With my damn DCT I couldn't do better than a 2.4 60ft, but I trapped 116 @ 12.9.... frustrating lol, I need to go back with better tires.

Yeah, I actually picked these wheels since not a lot of folks run them. I wanted ARC-8s due to their weight, but I decided that I could use the $$ difference for other stuff. Tires make all the difference lol. Sticky tires should get you 1.8x 60ft and somewhere around 12.2x. Nice trap speed, it's a better indicator of power anyways. I'll go back with these A/S 3s and try to get a sub 2.0 60ft, hopefully put me around 12.4x.

I love it! Its hands down the best thing I have ever bought myself. The interior is really nice (especially compared to other GM products), it rides/handles great, and has tons of power. It was my first brand new car so maybe Im biased but I love my GTO.
