I don't think we have any common ground in modding.

The fitment isn't crazy, it's flush right now. I probably won't ever do manifold/headers/tune because of all the money invested for the little gain(relative). I add up too many miles to make it worth it IMO, so i'm saving my money for a future car endeavor.

Anyway, i found out last night with 3 passengers and a big highway dip, i rub in the back. So i'll be trading my 15mm spacers for hopefully 10mm all around. I'm not actually going to roll/pull my fenders.

Gave my 1er some love and finally installed my eibach springs! The ride is almost as good as stock, a tad stiffer but still very compliant and forgiving. On bigger bumps its definitely noticeable but nothing i won't be able to live with. And finally GOODBYE FENDER GAP. I'll post up some pictures tomorrow. I knocked out my front camber alignment pins too for a tad more free negative camber.

No thanks then. Oiled filters destroy MAFs.

new 1er

hey everyone not sure if this is the right place to post. but I just wanted to
introduce myself on the forums. coming from a mazdaspeed 3 I love my 128i even tho it lacks in power it drives amazing. im stationed in germany right now I just picked up my space grey 128i with sports pkg in January. she came onky with 12k miles for being a 2009. I can say im super excited with it. Here's a few pictures. I recently installed H&r springs and the matte black kidney grills. I took her to the nurburgring two weeks ago and it was a blast.

135i perfromance brakes on 128i rear

Posting here, previous info was discussed and critiqued here.


Installed 135i brakes with F30 backing plates with Motul 5.1 brake fluid
F30 backing plates do not need to be cut, you can bend away that 1 inch triangle

Rear is not 100% bolt on as has been said.
Need to trim backing plate around caliper AND need to make 1 inch incisions in it all around to bend it out like flower petals. Otherwise it rubs against the rotor.

Performance is increased, stops are more sudden. Don't know if its fresh OEM brake pads and rotors or the whole package.

Handbrake fix is to come over time. I have some ideas.
