    Hi, I ditched E46 M3 and GTi then bought 135i ! I still keep my A5 as well !
    Now, I'm thinking of doing few things on the car and need your suggestions !
    What is the best suspension option for BMW? BMW performance vs KW V1 or V2 (I don't want to have crazy drop, looking for arnd 20mm)
    What is the best exhaust option for BMW? BMW performance vs Dinan vs Berk

    Also, I need better price than $700 for my CSL trunk paint job and installation, would you guys recommend me any shop?

    Thank you guys ~ drive safe and stay warm

    Cobb is your best bet for more hp. forget dinan and bmw crap. if all you're looking for is 20mm drop just throw some eibach springs on there and be done with it. cool car by the way.

    Eibach spring won't be as good as KW V2 in performance wise though, right?
    ahhh...it's hard when there is not one perfect sus for 135i...
    BTW the current ride wheels very tight and hard with sport sus !

    I would go BMW Performance Suspension and BMW Performance Exhaust...I've heard so many issues with KW and the BMW Performance set-up is only a 20-30mm drop

    My brother recently bought the new 335xi, He had a BMW performance exhaust put on and it sounds pretty good. Next week he is having them install some new power package they have for it. He's not looking for big gains and warranty is important to him.

    Nice! I remember watching the Format67 video of the 130i tii (http://vimeo.com/4797042) a year or so ago thinking how fun it would be to drive one of those... Have fun!

    Welcome! I am sure Aaron, Rachel, Samir, or Cristov will chime in, as they all have or have had a 135!

    Nice car... I really loved mine. One of the most fun cars to drive made after '00. If I stll had it I probably would have dropped it on Eibachs and looked to Turnermotorsport. bimmerworld, vac motorsport and evosport for some more performance. I would probably have gone pretty conservative with a tune as well. The turbos in those things are pretty fragile and not tollerant of putting out a lot of extra boost.

    My dealer gave me ridiculous quote for installation of bmwps.
    They ask me for $1200 installation fee...

    BMW Performance Exhaust gets my vote. It's makes a great sound without being obnoxious. Any plans for a tune? Congrats on the car!

    For now, I'm going to get BMW performance Suspension, VMR VB3 CSL rep, and CSL trunk from iCarbon.

    BTW, I just got one question for all BMW owners !
    My oil temperature wouldn't go up even after warm up and 4~5 miles of driving.

    What temp was it at after 4-5 minutes? N54/N55 warm up pretty quickly.
