Evolve tune is great, very responsive and very aggressive a the top end of the revs...... Just relentless to be honest.

No problem mate.....

Though they are all UK based places. But when I am home later, I will add to the thread where I got most bits from - if I can remember.

Wow. I always wanted to put the performance bumper on mine... looks great on yours!

Did you get your CF rear diffuser from a Taiwanese ebay seller by the way? There's one currently selling at $300 USD delivered. He has good feedback and ratings. Tempted to buy asap for my sisters e87

OH! Any sounds clips?? I sure miss the sound of the 130i under WOT

Thanks mate, was 50/50 on the number but am really pleased with the look. Especially as the car is lower.

Didn't get the diffuser from there, i got all my carbon from here www.ssdd-motorsport.com His name is Teddy and a very helpful guy with great prices. Am sure he will send abroad.

Have sound clips somewhere, will have a look. As my air box is open it does sound very aggressive.

Thanks.

The ducts fit onto the bumper itself. But the design is shit...... They don't have a flow through design for the brakes like the M Sport version. Just little slots in the top of the that do nothing

So I cut out the inside of them to allow air to flow through them onto the brakes.

oh ok so your original msport ducts directly fit to the performance bumper. so i guess a non msport 1er with different ducts would need more work...

interesting about the duct design but the bumper looks great

No, completely different design.

The performance bumper comes with it's own ducts - that don't do anything!

The spoiler is from SSD Motorsport here in the UK.

Speak to Teddy as he is very helpful and I think it cost about £150....around that, can't quite remember.

Would love to learn more about your dyno

Was it just low temp or was there a bump in power?
