New 135i, loving it!

I just traded my 2008 328i coupe in for a 2010 BMW 135i M Package with the 6 speed manual transmission about 2 weeks ago. So far i am loving this car! I'm looking to put a JB4 on in the next few weeks and im just wondering what kind of difference you guys or girls felt after the tune. I already have a new charge pipe with a Tien BOV on its way and aFe downpipes.

If anyone has experiance with these modifications please let me know how you like them.

Thanks,
John

Here are some pictures of the car:
Performance Exhaust was installed before delivery and well as tint.

Welcome, how do you like the 1-Series Coupe compared to the 3-Series size wise?

I really dont mind the size difference, im only 19 so i dont have kids or any pets, i dont utilize the back seats. The back definantly had a but more room in the 3 but i have had a friend back there who is 6'0" tall and he wasnt too bad.

Jb4

if you just install the jb4 you will experience miss firing.
you need catless DP, MP intercooler up grade and good air intake.

Maybe on the earlier revisions of the firmware.

JB4 ran fine before I went DP/Intake/CP.

FMIC sitting waiting for warmer weather to install.

135i is a terrible choice as a track car, heating issues galore.

It does make for a great street car.

Nice! I just picked up a 135i about a month ago, it's an absolute blast to drive. Can't wait to get the summer performance tires on it.

I am running JB3, I just stay away from using map 07, the other thing I had to do was to change the bov because the carbon was affection the idle of the car. the intake needed cleaning every 10 k. now that the warranty is over I will complete my setup, I would up grade but we do not have e85 here.

The jb4 will make you faster than most car, mustang Shelby and vet with blower will still come in front, to be at the top you need all the mode install than it is up to the driver skill, I track mine sometime. mod needed to come on top, catless dp, mid pipe, intercooler and meth kit with high octane gas.

I just bought an '08 135Msport specifically for track duty. These are amazing cars on track. One of the reasons I bought one. Leaving my powerplant stock, going to be working on suspension and brakes as time goes on.

Sweet car man, excited to see how you like it around the track. I've loved all the 1-series ive driven but havent had the luxury of owning one yet.

A JB4 should give you a great amount of power, and would be a nice addition to the car. Any other plans other than what youve already done?

Congrats on the car.

No experience with JB4 but I really enjoy my Cobb AP. The extra power is exactly what I was looking for. DPs will be the next big jump but before that FMIC would be next. It didnt take long after datalogging with Cobb to realize air temps where way too high for my liking after back to back pulls on a hot day.

FMIC, tires and a few suspension changes and it's a great little track car.

I have a Cobb AP for my Mazda RX-8, and its fantastic and works like a charm. Unfortunately it doesn't harness the power that the ones for twin turbo'd cars do.

But from what I hear, for TT BMW's a JB4 is the way to go. Crazy power plus its awesome how it can be controller from the steering wheel buttons. Plus its cheaper than the $900 Cobb AP.

JB4 definitely squeezes out more power but I like the AP flash instead of piggy back and ease of install and uninstall is what got me. Plus using the Cobb AP for data logging,
doubling as a gauge of any type you want and a scan tool for codes is great. Picked up mine for $500 new outta Toronto. Both are really good options and I really do like
that you can change maps on the fly with JB4.
