I've sourced an engine from a 135, the original owner is upgrading his engine, I assume it will still have the same issues you've mentioned?
i know who you are now, just stumbled on this thread lol

heaps of places, like hardy spicer, driveline services aus etc. easy to find on google lol

Update - you would also need JBE from doner N54 vehicle along with CAS and DME
and since i just stumbled on this thread, i just re-read this post and as always, worry about things i haven't checked -- - list of 130i JBE part numbers

and if you search globally for any of those part numbers, it shows various 3 series (inc 335i/335xi) and 1 series (e87 at least, not E82).. hard to find much on the JBE, but even when it needs replacing, it's not a module that needs coding it seems, it's just a quick replace.. i gathered all it does it


is a training document for the electronics system, basically says the JBE can be configured as per equipment loadouts... so keeping my current JBE is the best idea since it's going to be set up for the same equipment (it means my rear windows and doors should still work as it's THIS module that knows they're there.. i think lol)

and upon further reading, it's what bridges the internal electronics with the DME, so thanks for making me look it up.. eventually. haha. i was still kinda wondering how it all hooked up.
