    UdubBadger/Seth@Eurocharged's 2011 135i Build Thread

    I don't want this to die over on 1addicts.com because of my #noapparentreasonbanning so I am bringing it over here. I don't own the car anymore, actually I sold it exactly a year ago today so this is kind of ironic I'm posting it now but here it is in case anyone ever cared to read the progress.

    **** CAR PURCHASED 6/5/10 ****

    Decided I wanted to keep a modding journal to be able to look back upon later and see how far I've come. I will update this 1st post often *SO CHECK BACK* with each individual install I do but here is a preview of some of the few installs I have planned to follow (hopefully all this summer).

    -New Wheels
    -Springs/suspension
    -Exhaust + diffuser
    -OEM base stereo overhaul (tweeter addition/component front speaker upgrade, rear speaker upgrade, sub upgrade and amp/processor addition)
    -Front lip
    -Tune!

    Here is round 1.

    6/25/10

    Got a package sent to me via Evan@Tischer of some BMW goodies that I put on today! :thumsup:

    BMW Gloss black grilles (to match the OEM gloss black trim on the exterior)
    BMW Performance CF spoiler
    BMW OEM Glacier Silver interior trim (wood :thumbdown)
    OEM Rubber mat set

    Installed the grilles with no problems, they look really nice on this color.

    The spoiler took a bit more work. Removing the old one was a pain and I used too much goof off and it ended up screwing up the clear coat on the top of my trunk a little. Not too noticeable unless you get real close and have the light shining just right but it ticked me off... shoulda listened to Julius@WSTO when he told me to go easy on the goof off.

    The interior trim was a frickin PROJECT, removing most of it was quick and simple however that last piece that requires you to take off the entire center console was a pain in the ass. Johan@WSTO had done it before so he helped a lot but it still took about 3 hours to do the whole thing. It was worth it though, its so much nicer than the wood... I just wish the car had came that way to begin with.

    7/3/10

    Went out with my buddies Johan from WheelSTO and Carlos, aka CubanJJ09, aka "Vatos Locos Forever", to do a photo shoot on Carlos' E92. Even though I was there to mainly help Johan NOT get hit by a car (which almost happened like 4 times) I was able to snap a real pix of my car with my real camera and not my phone.

    Got all the components for my stereo upgrade.

    My 2011 base stereo came without the HiFi components (ones that I now hear will be standard again on Sept 2010 builds and newer Click here to enlarge but oh well). Because of this I was left with a base stereo of 4 mid range woofers and 2 subs, no tweeters, no amp and no DSP.

    To get a little bit better sounds I decided to upgrade some stuff and add component fronts with tweeters for better highs and less muddy sound.

    Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge

    I went to Ken at MusicarNW (better known as VP Electricy on the boards) to get all of my stuff. I started with the now discontinued MB Quart RUA 210's for the front components and left the rears alone (though I might still upgrade). I also opted for the SWS8 under seat subs to thicken up the bass and take some of the distortion out of the mid range woofers. For these I also needed an amp so I got an Arc Audio amp not only because of the power output but mainly the size as it was easily fit into the under trunk next to the battery with ease.

    A BIG thank you to both VP Electricity and Technic for their individual help on this. Technic was nice enough to give me and my installer his phone number to help with questions about his harness, and was most helpful. Ken (VP Electricty) helped get me all the right components for the upgrade and special ordered a few pieces for me as well as some great prices on everything and a very easy exchange as the amp I went with in the 1st place didn't look like it was going to work out. If ANYONE on here needs Stereo or Car Electronics I advise you to PM him... he's fantastic guy to work with and will get my business again in the future. Also a little shout out to my boy Evan@Tischer for hooking me up with the OEM tweeterpods for a clean OEM look. Thanks guys! :thumbsup:

    Here are a few pics of everything.

    Sounds great, the bass is real nice now and the tweeters make a WORLD of a difference in the highs. I'm very happy with how it all turned out and was done on a budget too.
    I might eventually replace the rear deck speakers and possibly add a DSP/clean sweep to the system but this is good for now.

    Well everyone. This was a build time for me. Most of these mods were done in preparation for HIN Chicago but unfortunately a few days before it was supposed to happen the company that owns HIN was bought out by a media group and they "postponed" the show. Probably a god send for me cuz I ran into a bunch of problems, delays and whatnot and didn't finish the entire list I had planned for the show. Which means this might be a large part of my cars modding but it's not the last for sure. So 8 day, 3 shops and 1 horribly overpriced Ford Fusion rental car, this was the result.

    We will start with the least obvious...

    Evan @ Tischer hooked me up with some sweet BMW Performance Rotors. I was thinking of getting the Performance brake kit but he told me all it is is painted 135 calipers and performance rotors anyway so I left my calipers alone and saved some cash doing it this way Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge

    Next the boys at WSTO came through with a set of Bilstein PSS9 Coilovers at a killer price so I couldn't pass them up.

    You'll notice in the last photo a grey bar to the left of the strut. The is my new UUC rear swaybarbarian. I had the front ready to go on too but for some reason when measured it was 2 inches shorter than my stock bar so I am waiting for UUC to answer me about what the hell happened (hopefully I just received the wrong bar).

    The result of the drop was bittersweet. It felt great, I was so scared bumps would be harsh but it rides just as well if not better than stock. The downside was Anthony from A&L autobody/IND slammed the $#@! out of the car so it was rubbing just a tad on hard cornering. I can't say it wasn't fun getting looks for this for a few days though.

    Click here to enlarge

    Next, WSTO kicked it up a notch for me. BASTUCK QUADS, custom painted matte black with 20% gloss black tips. It puuuuurrrrrs like a kitten and I love it. I had some custom piping fabricated at Fluid MotorUnion and despite my past history with them (wasn't a fan) they impressed me and I was very happy. Now the exhaust bolts right up to the stock midpipes and fits perfectly.

    (sorry for the crap pic)
    Click here to enlarge


    Well, as everyone knows, when you do quads on a 135i, you need a quad diffuser. So I enlisted the help of the great guys over at iCarbon, Andy and Mario. They custom made me a quad diffuser to fit the Bastuck quads and it came out beautifully and the quality was TOP NOTCH. However, being in love with the BMW performance rear on the 335's, I wanted something just a touch different than just a CF rear diffuser. Even though the CF on the piece is top notch, I decided to have most of it painted in BMW Performance fashion (a-la 335is rear) and left the small bottom part CF to show it off just a little. The result is pretty awesome in my opinion - very beastly.

    A very unique look for the 135 and I'm happy to say it's become my favorite piece on the car.
    AGGRESSIVE!

    Click here to enlarge

    I also had the iCarbon guys send me a CF front lip so the front of the car would have some CF love too. It also is a terrific piece and I love the little devil horned splitters molded into it, it definitely compliments the other CF touches to the car perfectly and again... a top quality piece from them.

    Click here to enlarge

    Last but certainly not least were the wheels (from WSTO of course...). We are still working out some kinks as the extreme drop and width of the rear tires we ordered weren't working together but I managed to get my RFT's on the car for a few days till we sort it out. I went with 18" VMR VB3's in gunmetal. I did 18's as I didn't want the wheels to look TOO big on the car, 19's just seem to do that with a 1er for some reason. I also wanted a classic BMW look in a color that complimented my mods and the Deep Sea Blue paint. I have always been a big fan of VMR's but I will say I wish their wheels deemed "1 series fit" actually FIT the 1 series. The rears are probably too aggressive offset and width for this car but with a ride height adjustment and a few tries of getting it right and massive rubbing in the parking lot we have everything where it needs to be right now. I am very happy with the wheels, exactly how I pictured the car looking with them.

    It will probably need to go up about .1 or .2 inches after the new S.Drives arrive in the thinner sizes but we will see where it ends up.


    A few things I will need to get on the car in the next month or so until HIN's rescheduled date (Still TBA but expected indoors in NOV/DEC) are:


    -Get the front sway bar situation fixed
    -Strut tower brace
    -Amber gone vinyls
    -Shadowline Emblems
    -P3 Boost gauge
    -ECU Tune by EuroCharged (supposed to work on this next week!)
    -Vinyl exterior graphics/logos
    -a surprise mod or two Click here to enlarge

    Also expect a LOT of photos coming soon (I have several shoots in the planning stages, some involving Ms. Hayley from EuroCharged... you won't wanna miss those).

    I took some pics in Madison today and these all will be going in a new thread once edited in a day or two (that I will link here) but I don't want anyone going empty handed so here is a tease for that.

    It has been 6 months to the day since I started modding the car. I love driving it every single day.

    I had some new plates done for my official switch to IL.
    Click here to enlarge

    I needed a front plate bracket as well so the boys at WSTO hooked it up.
    It works well, just don't take it through a carwash... (I'll post a pic later).


    Also, here is just a quick pic of her with my low gloss black powdercoated 261M's (10% gloss) and Blizzaks for the winter.

    Click here to enlarge

    I am hoping my next mods will be some catted downpipes, BMW performance side skirts and I can FINALLY get my tune from Eurocharged (been backed up).


    2/3/11

    Well it has been a busy month or so since I've updated. A few new things have gone onto the car.

    I'll start with the most important... MY TUNE.

    Jake and Jerry of Eurocharged cooked something up for me a few weeks ago and I am loving it. 40whp/40wtq and it's just the first version on my car. Since I don't have the big power mods like FMIC or DPs (yet) and since the N55 is a newer project for them, this is only the beginning on power... and even so I can't say I'm disappointed at all. I am burning right through DSC when I turn and slam the gas. Once I get a few more goodies I will take it up to Stage II and I'm sure they'll have something nice for me. Their older N54 1er was putting down 400+ at the wheels so I know I am in for a ride!

    Oh yeah and I hit 10k miles!
    Click here to enlarge

    Also, the guys at WSTO recommended that I breath a little better so I picked up an AFE pre-oiled filter. Feels good and helps just a touch in the throttle response, much better than stock. When I see a true cold air intake for this car I will probably do that but until then, this is what I'm rockin.

    Lastly, I wanted to show the front tow hook plate bracket I got from WSTO also. This thing is great, low profile, easy to install and best of all, no drilled holes in the bumper or blocking of the intercooler/radiator.

    3/2/11

    Just got my AR Design Catless DPs installed. Wow what a torque rush. I need to have me tune redone by Eurocharged though cuz HP tops out around 5000rpms then dies. Lots of fun below that though, and the sound... WOW, perfect.

    Here is a little vid I did for it, Start up, in cabin and outside (which sucks cuz it was so loud it was clipping the mic).

    So I promised an update...

    Check out the new addition to the car:

    Click here to enlarge

    BMW performance side skirts. Love the way they look on the car. Had them painted at A&L Autobody and color is a perfect match (unlike some Cuban cars I know of @CubanJJ09 ).


    I showed at World of Wheels Tuner Galleria 2 weekends ago. Got a TON of compliments on the car, judges also very impressed but I ended up not winning anything Click here to enlarge. Kinda makes me realize I really only do this stuff for myself and even though I love hearing how much people love the car, its just a reminder to me that as much as I want to say I mod for myself, it never hurts to be officially recognized. My buddy Jake from Eurocharged won Best MB with his AMG E55 (again....). :slap: I'll get him soon.

    A few quick pix from that.

    ----------------------------------------
    4/11/11

    Ran the car on a dyno yesterday. The bad news was my tune was supposed to be updated since I got DP's so I could get correct HP out of it but Eurocharged's mygenius flashing tool cracked in 1/2 and the replacement wasn't able to get here in time. I dyno'd the car dispite not being fully tuned just for fun and didn't expect much.

    Video of dyno (and CubanJJ09's ugly mug in the beginning - you hairy motherf*cker, don't you own a razor?


    Big Ups to Mark (MKpoto) for the video :thumsup:

    As you can tell right at the end, the power just drops... thats because I have DP's and no tune for DPs so my HP bombs instead of goes up. The good news is my WTQ was unreal @ 391ft/lbs. I out torqued a new Mustang GT 5.0.

    Once I get an FMIC and the full stage II flash finished up on my car it will all come together and I have a feeling some VERY impressive #'s will follow from another dyno run in the near future.
    ----------------------------------------
    5/20/11

    My guys over at Tischer BMW (Evan & Jason) were nice enough to hook me up with their 1st pair of LCI tails. These things look SWEET, pretty visible even in day time.

    I am lovin' um. Thanks guys! :thumbsup:


    I also went over to Julius@WSTO and swapped my VB3's to some Apex ARC8's so I can run some wider tires all around. The offsets and wheel design allow me to go 235 front and 265 rear with no camber or fender rolling needed. Heck, the 265 in the back has so much room I had Julius order me 5mm spacers! Thanks buddy :thumsup:. Big ups to Anthony @ A&L/IND for mounting and balancing Click here to enlarge.

    Been a while since an update, a lot goes on in your life when you get married, honeymoon, start 2 new jobs and are in your final year of school. Since May the newest mod was a set of the BMW Performance Brake Calipers, definitly makes them pop a bit more now. I also was given some large Eurocharged vinyls for the sides of the car for TimmayFest in Ohio and a local show here in Chicago. Amidst all there is to do/that has been done lately in my life, I am looking to buy a house so sadly this might be the last update on this car. I am not sure if I can afford another BMW but even if I can, this one will surely hold a very special unique place in my heart.

    Sad day but I had to bring the car over to A&L yesterday to part out. Click here to enlarge

    I don't think I'll be keeping the car much longer. I need space for dog/photo equipment and a lower monthly payment for me and the new Mrs.

    It was fun while it lasted but I guess priorities change. Maybe I'll be able to swing a CPO 328i so I can stay in the BMW family.

    1/16/12 - The Final Update

    Car has a new owner and I'm tearing up :cry: thinking that I am going to be parting ways with her in less than 24 hours. Here is my final post for the mod journal.
    Thanks again to everyone for following along with me on this journey, I'll still be around even though I won't have an e82 anymore.

    My Final Update:

    The Last Ride
    1/17/12

    (combo of Cannon and iPhone 4s pix)

    Well she's gone... heading up to Minnesota to deliver her to the new owner.

    So I packed the 135i the night before and was ready to go early in the AM. Of course the day after I get the car detailed and ready for its new owner, we get a blizzard. I left the house around 6:15am and headed out as the snow was still a light rain.
    Click here to enlarge

    Made it out to the 1st Oasis ok, needed some gas. Weather was ok but I could tell it was about to take a turn for the worst.
    Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge

    And it did...
    Click here to enlarge

    It got so bad that I switched on the eurofogs so the people behind me could see where I was at.
    Click here to enlarge

    Despite the bad weather I made it to Madison... REALLY wanted to stop in but no time. Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge

    Saw a bunch of people who were in the ditch, accidents and all of that. Surprised that in a state that gets so much snow annually people still lose control of their vehicles. It's called winter tires people. :rolleyes
    Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge

    Things cleared up even more and I decided to fill my tank up again so I could clean my wipers and go straight to Minneapolis and not stop anymore. My car grew a beard of ice/slush and I was only 1/3 of the way there.

    Click here to enlarge

    I was able to get moving again (instead of going 45mph). Hadn't been up this far in Wisconsin for a long time, forgot how pretty it was.
    Click here to enlarge

    Gotta have a little snack for the drive... delicious. :drool
    Click here to enlarge

    Contrary to my initial thoughts, the further North I went the cleaner the roads became so I was back up to cruising at 80mph and closer to Minnesota.
    Click here to enlarge

    Around 12:45pm I finally reached the St. Croix River and crossed into Minnesota. I made my way to the meet up spot to pass along the 135i to the new owner by 1pm - meeting my initial ETA of 12-1pm by mere seconds.
    Click here to enlarge

    So at this point, I had a 7 hour trip through a mini blizzard and temps of 35 when I started to 8 and windy where I ended. The 1er was not happy with me, especially for our last trip together. I felt bad I couldn't even wash her up, I don't usually trust car washes with my cars. Luckily the new owner was very understanding of the situation so it wasn't an issue. I showed him around the car, all the features, all the little in's and out's and then signed the bill of sale and it was final. I no longer owned the 1er.

    One Last Look
    Click here to enlarge

    So Eli (the owner of my new (to me) 2004 ZHP sedan was also present and after I was finished there, he showed me around the ZHP a little, some of the features and little in's and out's of the car and that was that. Kind of strange how it just worked out that the person who purchased my car and Eli were both in Minneapolis. When I found out I told the new owner I'd be happy to deliver the car for $150 for gas which was PLENTY to fund the trip (and my gummy worms). I felt pretty :pimp about organizing that one.

    So Eli said goodbye and I pulled across the way to hit up a bathroom before my trip home and snap a quick pic of the new car with my phone for the Mrs.

    I sat in the car and played around a bit and just started thinking how foreign it all felt. And then it happened. I have NO issues admitting that I started to tear up a bit right then and there, thinking about that 1 series and what it actually meant to me. I worked so hard to find that car, it was off of the 1st boat of N55 powered cars in late May of 2010, as a 2011 model. It was EVERYTHING I wanted in a car, even the color (which I wasn't sure about originally and had to let grow on me). I spent hours upon hours researching parts, audio equipment, diy's and everything in between. Jerry, Jake and I worked on the 1st ECU tune for the N55 on it and made almost 400wtq on a dyno without an intercooler or meth or a full ECU flash (never removed the DME for a full rewrite).

    It was the 1st car I had where I didn't feel like there was something I had to do to it to make it something it wasn't, even though it was loaded up with the toys. Usually I'd find some way to "trade up" to a car I thought was superior by some means but never had to with this car because I loved it just the way I had it, and wanted it forever... it was more than I could have asked for. It was the car I flew out to Cincinnati on 24 hrs notice to pick up and drive back 8 hours, the car I moved back to Chicago from Madison in (that was hard), most of all it was the car my wife and I drove away in after we got married. I know we all feel deep connections to our cars (even Eli said he felt weird selling me his ZHP) but I've never felt so attached to a car like I did that one - and I've got 13 cars on my owned list already. The problem is the price was more than I could afford and offer the morally correct amount of financial support to my family as we moved into our own house and I went into my last semesters of college and not working as much.

    As all of these thoughts clouded my brain and some tears started forming at my eyes, my phone rang. It was my wife, checking in on me between giving her kids their final exams (HS teacher). She knew instantly I was upset, she asked why and I even had a problem telling her... physically. I was choking up and couldn't get the words out. She talked me through it a little, not trying to say its just a car or that there will be others, but by validating how much the car also meant to her and how it will be missed. I felt like a little piece of me grew right then and there. It became a lot more clear as I remembered WHY I was giving up the car. As someone who's always over valued "things" in my life, I began to realize that stuff always pales in comparison to family - mostly my wife. I don't have a big family and after my dad's passing, it was always hard to think of not taking care of myself first because we don't know how long we are really here for. I think I'm getting the hang of this though, the money I'm saving will contribute even more to building a future with my wife (and dog) instead of just living in the present with cool "stuff" regardless of how much I feel attached to it or not.

    And then I realized how lucky I was to have this beautiful ZHP at my fingertips and decided it was time to come home.


    Stay tuned for my ZHP build thread - coming soon.

    I get the itch to build a similar one all the time, maybe when I find one at the right price with the right options and such.

    Contacted the guy who took her in Minnesota and asked him to let me know if he ever decides to sell. He has 1/2 the mods still on the car.

    looking at both options right now. E90 is in the lead by a small margin because of space.
