I purchased my 08í 135i MT about 6 months ago with just under 160k miles.

So far Iíve refreshed the entire suspension back to OEM with lowered springs (it was on BCs).

Iíve also replaced the flywheel and clutch a long with all the shifter bushings. D4 tranny fluid too.

The car rides and feels much smoother, but it still feels like itís missing something.

I also own a 2010 BMW 328i MT that has a much more comfortable ride. Not just suspension wise. My goal is to make it feel the same.

One of my biggest issues is the shifter. Especially 1st to 2nd shift problem. I canít find a definitive answer on the forums. Some say the CDV delete works, some say it doesnít.

To solve these issues Iíve got new engine mounts on the way, Teflon shifter bushings, polyurethane shifter arm bushing, and transmission mounts.

CDV will be deleted too.

Iím hoping this makes the shifter feel like my 328i.

Are there any other bushings I should refresh or parts that would make the car feel more ďnewĒ?

I've seen a few people mention the synchros crap out. I did the CDV delete too, bled it, it did help squash that jerky shift but on very cold mornings, those first few shifts aren't awesome. (N55, 6mt 105k with a sub 10k clutch replacement).

Iíve been told the synchros could be it yeah. Disappointing especially with you only having 105k miles. CDV sounds good then.
