Brought an e82 135i and loving it
Came from a e46 m3 and thought that the 135i would not feel as fast but how shocked was I

just need a lsd and less understeer then it be perfect

I did the same thing a few years back. Is your 135i the n54 of 2010- n55?

Just wait until you JB4 that sucker.

FWIW my 135i with just jb3 (older version of jb4) pulled on a friends E60 M5 up to 140; only then did we accellerate at the same rate for a second or too.

like I said, jb4 will transform your car

Before you go for more power, I would suggest getting the handling right. I've had my suspension chenged by Birds in Slough and come off the run flat tyres and the car is so much more supple and better riding for our rubbish roads. Birds also do anti roll bars to cure the understeer and fit quaife LSD, that'll be next for me. A the moment I'm just enjoying putting more power down by the suspension and tyre upgrade

Agreed. The Birds B1 kit and non RFTs makes a hell of a difference. I've gone for the works: springs, dampers, ARBs and LSD.

You could also consider a Cobb.

Congrats, BTW.
