What's the effort required compared to simply suggesting 1-3 w8 tablets? There are a few <$100.

In AU it's standard to get custom tunes, only the euro scene loves their flash tunes. The better JDM tuners will also tunes euros.
Any of the tuners who have tuned stupid $#@! in the past?...

For a Vortech V3? Why not sell the brackets with a suggested BOM?

130i - 20k
135/335i - 40k
M3/1M - 80k +
The only thing the 135i has over my car is the N54 where I have modified everything else already. N54 would be in the car with RB turbos if I DIY, <10k....

ESS = not looking good
VF = Worked on a one off Z4 in 2010 which put down ~100whp over stock
It's more cost effective for me to put an N54 in my car than to go to a cheap 135i or 335i, but...

Sounds like this kit was a $#@! up- public beta without revealing it was a beta.
VF Engineering might be more promising...
Summer where I am, was only around 30 deg. Celsius. Minimal time spent on limp mode/overheated.
Seems head damage isn't a trend on these unlike the M54.
On the way out for NYE my water pump failed(validated with codes).
Car felt gutless when overtaking, red light popped up and limp mode kicked in; as I was in the mountains I had to find a...

Thanks for the response. That forum is a mess!
Reason being- I have an E85 servo near work, home and most places I go.

How'd you go?
BB Flash + some dyno time might be worth it for the N52? Particularly for those considering headers.

Sure, within the ESS range there isn't a comparison as unlike the majority of their kits, they used a twin-screw blower rather than the Vortech V3. VF Engineering didn't push it -...

Good news- this kit uses the same Vortech V-3 Si supercharger (http://www.vortechsuperchargers.com/page.php?id=30148) as the S54 and s65 kits. On the S54 with a FMIC and 10 PSI it makes around 500...

I'll use myself as an example: a 3-series is larger than what I want to drive as aside from commuting I spend my time on tiny back roads. A 135i will cost perhaps 30-40% more than I can sell for, it...

Yah, charts are out- 45% power, 23% torque increase. I still want to see what the upgrade path is.

Thank you for the response. It appears that a Quaife will meet my requirements.
I have experience similar events when the car has stepped out and I have corrected as the ESC/ESP has kicked in- safer...
Let's take this to PM or a new thread to avoid taking away from the intended purpose of this thread- reference.
HPA stock Ohlins but unsure how much. That PSS10 price is great. Perhaps try and go...

I'm revisiting this at the moment as MFactory have released a KAAZ competitor and I've had other priorities.
I presume the clutch LSD will fight the electrics?
How do you find your Quaife on...

My thoughts- don't make changes aside from checking that components are torqued correctly.
Raise the car, move the suspension around and listen for the noise. Move the wheel through its travel, turn...
Budget? For PSS10 money I would look at Ohlins DFV too. Drag traction is a very different setup to auto-X...
Yeah, pricing is consistent. Was just an example. Don't forget to grab the hardware- it is recommended by BMW to replace it as they are stretch bolts.
Increased camber( & feel)
These cars feel crap standard, front camber is woeful. Before going down the path of front strut tops (personally I would do this with a change of springs) I invested in...

Front: 120 lb/in
Rear : 350 lb/in
e90 ZSP or e92
OEM rear subframe bushes for non-M cars are liquid filled trash.
Whiteline do a poly lock kit for under $100 which can be fitted without removing the subframe (requires loosening)...
What are your requirements?Thanks. I'll add some more content as I do my next round of mods.
