    My 1er hit a big milestone this week as the odometer passed 150,000 miles with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. It was also time to switch spark plugs after running the NGK 5992 for around...

    No link. You'll have to get in touch with Hydra Performance through Facebook or email to get a set. They were $99 with shipping included from Asia to the US.
  3. N54: I've really been enjoying the sounds of...

    I've really been enjoying the sounds of everything with the BMS cowl covers installed and the large OEM assembly removed, as well as the extra cooling. The metal intake manifold used to be too hot to...

    Since my last update where I resolved my AC line issues, everything has held up well so far and continues to blow ice cold air--an absolute necessity for the temperatures and humidity we’ve been...
  5. N54: Nice to hear I'm not the only one. I have a build...

    Nice to hear I'm not the only one. I have a build thread on a few other forums and people have spoken up there as well saying they've had trouble with the same line on their ST setup. If I have any...
  6. N54: It took over 40,000 miles of use, but my switch...

    It took over 40,000 miles of use, but my switch to a single turbo finally caused some issues. As the temperatures started to warm up a few months ago, I noticed my air conditioning was not working...
  7. N54: Over the past month or so, I’d spent a lot of...

    Over the past month or so, I’d spent a lot of time with the E90 I’d been prepping for sale. After selling the car this past Friday and sending it down the road with its new owner, I decided to...

    After weighing out the affordable tire options for the 19 inch Breyton GTS Race wheels already installed, I decided to go with a set of Achilles Sport 2 245/275 combo tires and glad I did. They...

    I wanted to add another update to this build thread as the 1er recently passed 140,000 miles and is still going strong, but recently got some time off + some new parts.


    I was presented with the...

    Even though it's only been 40 days since my last update, this E82 road warrior has racked up nearly 4,500 miles in that time, bringing the odometer up to 133,000 and counting. In North Carolina, that...
  11. N54: My mileage rolled over the 130,000 mark on the...

    My mileage rolled over the 130,000 mark on the way home from work this past Friday, so the 135i was due for another day in the garage come Saturday. I've been using OCIs of 3,000-4,000 miles, and as...

    Seconded. Wish they would have deleted the distracting logo from the beautiful FF manifold too.

    Itís been multiple months and another 10,000+ miles of daily duty since my last update. Iíve continued my assault against the odometer, now at nearly 125,000 miles, and as usual, this 1er hasnít...

    Worth checking. I accidentally did this when going single turbo and it caused me headaches for weeks.

    Anyone else confused by the puddling of liquid? are we sure this picture isn't showing some type of fluid that has been sprayed inside prior to the picture being taken? As soon as that valve opened,...

    This sounds more and more like the car I'll be buying in a few years when I'm ready to make the 135i strictly a toy and need another daily.

    He's been an absolute pleasure to have in our family. We invested the time to do a lot of training when he was a puppy, and that has paid off big time. He basically speaks English these days.

    Thanks Payam! It's not the typical all-out racing related content most people post, but that's not what I typically use the car for.

    Winston, my 4 and a 1/2 year old border collie, has become...

    I took advantage of the awesome weather this weekend to take the 135i on a small road trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway. This car gets plenty of action during the week on my long commute to work and...
  22. N54: Since replacing the guibo and center support...

    Since replacing the guibo and center support bearing with new OEM parts, the 135i has been an absolute pleasure to drive. All the NVH I'd been blaming on the SMFW was unwarranted. With a 950RPM idle,...
  23. N54: Unfortunately so it seems, as I didn't notice...

    Unfortunately so it seems, as I didn't notice anything hitting or rubbing, even with the CSB flipped. That would have certainly saved me trouble. At least none of the E90 guys will encounter this...
  24. N54: Pulling the transmission would not net you any...

    Pulling the transmission would not net you any more room to swap turbos. From what I've seen, most dealers drop the engine, transmission and subframe all together.

    Definitely. I doubt I would have had any issues with the aluminum guibo if the CSB were installed correctly. Not to say it wouldn't have inevitably failed, but definitely not that quickly without any...
