The E82
Hi there ladies and gents,

I've been a member of this forum for a few months now and when I joined I was driving a BMW 320i E90 M Sport. A brilliant vehicle that I drove for 3.5 years and it performed without skipping a beat. A highlight of owning the car was taking it to a speed of 218kph on the GPS (No doubt, responsibly hehehe).

But ever since I’ve gotten my drivers license I’ve wanted a straight 6, took me long enough, 11 years in fact. Things really do get in the way, buying a place and getting married etc. Finally, I decided last year, before kids come into the picture, that I am going to actively look for the straight 6 that I’ve always wanted. Unfortunately, 325is’ and E36 M3s have to be bought cash and I wasn’t ready for that kind of money for a neat example. So, I went for a slightly later model straight 6. A turbo charged one…

The 135i is a completely different experience to the 320i with regard to the power…Oviaas. But more similar than you would think in terms of handling. The car corners well and reacts extremely well to aggression. It revs freely and the exhaust note is music to my ears. The power was daunting to me when I first test drove it. The adrenaline was pumping when I got out of the car and my hands were shaking a bit. I think the salesman knew immediately that he had me because he never budged on his price. I still think the best engine notes were from the E30s and E36s N/A Straight 6s but this is mighty contender. I’ve done 2500km since taking ownership and there has been nothing but smiles. I’ve avoided robot brawls, which doesn’t really interest me, but I did take on a mighty Leon Cupra (Owned by my bro-in law) that humbled me Sad, I never had a chance anyway.

I thought I would share some pics of my ride from this weekend. I hope you guys enjoy looking at this masterpiece as much as I do.

First, at the car wash for a mini-valet.

Then, the Amateur photoshoot Rofl

Then the VWCSA dyno day at FR&R:

I installed a JB4 the morning before the dyno event. I ran the first run on Map 1 and the 2nd run on Map 0. Just to see where the car was before I touched anything.

They assured me it was fine.Fencelook. They used big dryers to dry up everything then used leather cream everywhere. That is the last time I will do that type of cleaning on the leather thoughHammerhead

RE: The E82
Lovely upgrade,

no matter which way I look at it.., that foam was already running into crevices that they will not be able to get to. They seem to not know how foam is meant to be used on a seat.

Did you say you lost in a race with a Cupra? an Italian Golf?

This is a nice shot though, look at that line up

Hahaha, I think it's a Spanish golf...so worse. Yes his car makes 235wkw and 475Nm (We both dyno'd this past saturday at FR&R). I was stock. With JB4 on Map 1 I am at 219.2wkw now. Maybe when I actually get round to installing the BMS intakes I will try again and switch to map 5. But it was all in good fun, I didn't mind the lossTiptoe

That is great power. Did you try adapting Map 5 with your setup? If you have the G5 board I hear it makes great gains on Map 5 with higher quality fuel. I have the G4 board and I used pump fuel so I went the simple route on map 1.

Honestly I was hoping for more power... But it feels pretty good on the road. I now drive with it on map5 and it feels strong! Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to dyno again on map five or with any fuel additives. I want to try some ethanolTiptoe
