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.
