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...

Rear : 350 lb/in

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.
How were those pads on your rotors?
Start with pads/lines/fluid/tyres.
If you want the BBK look, perhaps just have your calipers painted.

What should I buy? (AKA, Which coilovers do I need?)

If you don't need height adjustment, try a Bilstein B12 prokit(B8 + eibach springs) or Koni + springs of your choice.
If you MUST have height adjustment, try the Bilstein B14 PSS or the KW v1...

Great effort guys. I downloaded and installed just to check it out, already broke it :P (Yes, I know it is beta)
Do not connect cable or ECU
After a discussion with another member I told him I would collate some reading for him, so figured I would make it public!
I've owned a few cars (10+), mostly modified. One topic that is...
I've used Bowden's own tar/bug/sap remover with a microfibre rag, worked well. Washed the car before and after use. Be sure to re-wax after use.
Eibach pro-kit? They match to the Bilstein B8 (as used in the b12 prokit).
I have used both Koni and Bilstein shocks and off the shelf I prefer B8's. They are also a more reliable shock for what...

Thanks David, have you any experience drifting with a Torsen LSD? I've only used clutch packs.

So I had this post on the other site:
Which other cars use the "bolted small pumpkin" unit? For example, KAAZ do not list a part for the 135i automatic (which shares it's...
