    Ryan, so sorry to hear about your problem man. That sucks bigtime. I hope you get it resolved without a lot of expense and difficulty. Click here to enlarge

    I put my bms ww meth kit on last weekend and just picked up 5 gal of M1 today but your thread does give me pause to think about the risks. I guess the 50/50 mix is good advice for street use and is the best short term plan.

    Long term I still worry a little. It seems like the meth may well be boiling in the filler tube causing the caps to pop off. That's the only thing that makes sense so far to me. If this happened in testing before the e90 was released I doubt bmw would have let it go. And I never saw it on my 08 335xi in 3 years. The cap was always tight the few times I filled it.

    All in all, I'd like to get a driver's side washer resevoir for my 11 335xi, ideally install it via pulling just the inner fender splash shield and use that as the tank. I'm not afraid to make brackets or drill a discreet hole or two to make it work. Does anyone know if a RHD 335, 5 series or some other bmw has a washer tank that would fit in the driver's fender area in a us spec 335? Also, how much liquid does the current 335 washer tank hold?

    Yes, it's a little bit of work but I'd rather spend another few hrs installing something there and know Im that much safer, tank away from the turbo and not running lines from the rear to the front etc.

    For the caps, we've always suggested poking a small hole in the top, like you see in my video, to augment the OEM WW tank vent. Little chance of anything splashing out of a tiny hole like that but it can prevent vacuum from building up causing flow issues and vacuum stress on the neck and cap. I doubt the WW neck gets hot enough to boil the meth unless you are running 100%, but even in that case the vent hole would likely help keep the cap from popping off.

    Filling height is not a big issue. When the cap pops meth fume ignites.

    Every time I filled, it was probably 4" or so from the top of the WW cap. I'm rethinking that decision now.

    Bavarian Bullet if you find something to fit drivers side fender well please post it. This is what i would like to do as well.Dont want a trunk mount kit and would like to use my ww tank for what it was designed for. Bugs are horrible this year and agree with keeping away from hot side of engine.

    It would be nice to see custom trunk mount tank option for the 135 and 335 that would sit in the side pockets of the trunk or in the well underneath the trunk floor mat. I have seen a few personal custom jobs that look really sweet. I will be going this route if I stick with an N54.

    The CM "pro" tank is quite simple to mount just on the left side of the trunk.

    Will do.

    I'd like to use my washers from time to time too.

    I think it's a good idea too but I personally don't believe in running plastic line from front to rear for higher meth concentrations. I'd say make sure the tank is very well secured in the trunk and run 4AN stainless to the front under the car's exterior and it should be relatively safe. Custom tank to fit side would make good use of trunk space but you're right over the battery or amp if it leaks.

    I ran the CM pro previously before I de-modded. Its a great tank for sure, just takes up too much room in a 135.

    A mere speed-bump on the way to a more powerful 335!

    If I ever decide to install a meth injection kit in my car, I'll probably go trunk mount and use a 1 gallon fuel cell for the tank. That's got to be a good, safe way to do it.

    EDIT: Something like this - http://www.jegs.com/i/JAZ-Products/5...02-01/10002/-1
    with this mounting system - http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS-Performan...rentProductId=

    Would that be good?

    I've started looking at other tanks that could fit in the front area for my thoughts on where the tank should go and AIS makes a nice-looking 3qt tank for $120: http://www.alcoholinjectionsystems.c...duct_info.html

    The trick is I haven't had the time to really jack the car up, pull a wheel off and really scope out the front end for a good tank spot. There's probably less room than I imagine so tanks like the AIS one area unlikely to fit. Still, there's a number of tanks, even one of the CM ones looks somewhat narrow enough it might sneak in there. The search goes on...

    I've seen one custom job on a forum somewhere where the OP used an OEM WW tank in the driver's side wheel well. I really liked that idea. Especially if someone could find a screw on cap!

    I didn't read the whole thread but I put a little duct tape on my cap cause I don't trust it for this very reason. Far too much pressure builds up in the WW bottle. I made a fuse cut-off switch that sits in my glovebox. I just hit the switch and it disables my wipers and I just pull the stalk and I have full prime in seconds. Works perfectly.

    But the OEM unit is moulded somewhat to fit the inner fender, the curve would be in the wrong direction. Is there enoguh space to allow for that? He probably had to use standoffs.

    He may have sourced it from a right hand drive car, as I would imagine the windshield wiper fluid reservoir is on the opposite side of where it is in a left hand drive car.

    If thats true, it should be a pretty easy fix. Much easier than me looking for a tank and plastic welding a filler pipe on it, which btw has proven to be difficult thus far.

    Just checked realoem for a RHD car and the image of the WW tank seems to indicate that its in the same passenger side location. Though, there are cutouts in the engine bay on the drivers side for what looks like could be a WW tank on my car. Can any guys with RHD in Europe confirm? This would be an easy fix!

    I just compared rhd and lhd part numbers at realoem and they appear to be the same...

    My UK RHD 335i has the WW bottle on the same side of the turbos just like your cars.

    well poop. While my car is in bits and pieces, it would be easy to get a new bottle in the drivers side. the search continues!
