If you want a "nice run" why you wouldn't buy the same car at the same price, but in 35i configuration doesn't make any sense. It's not even any more expensive on upkeep if you go for N55. For the most part tunes are for turbos and built motors. You really picked the wrong car if you want to add meaningful speed with affordable mods. Your only option honestly is nitrous. It's safe and very effective if installed correctly.

My 128i only has 30,000 miles. Had it when I bought it in 12' brand new from dealership. I can not find any 135i atm and also many have high Niles

Are you N51 or N52? You can check on BMWVin.com

Regardless, you'll need some hardware to really see some gains or you'll spend a lot for not so much.

Pretty sure the Turner Tune is a rebranded AA product, and if it isn't, there isn't really a reason to get it over BPC or AA.

It is. Even the software used to upload it is the same (but in a Turner skin)...
