    Hi all,

    I'm really pleased with this car, I've got 2000 miles on it now and it's getting looser all the time.

    what mileage do I need to do to fully loosen it up ?

    Has anyone fitted the SSTT to a 135i and does it add a risk to the turbo's or anything else as I have heard of some turbos being broken with tunes on this engine ?

    I have also heard that the SSTT isn't an easy fit on the 135i as the cable is at the bottom and the splash sheild needs removing, is this correct ?

    Does a replacement Air filter help this engine like a K&N and if so, which filter is the best and won't cause any problems with MAF sensors etc ?

    I find the tickover is a little lumpy, is this normal ?

    Sorry for all the questions and I hope you are all as please with your 135i as I am with mine.

    Si

    Welcome to the forum Si

    I've moved this thread to the tuning section so that it gets the required attention

    With regards to air filters... you need to avoid the oily type, apparently K&N are quite oily? Also, beemers don't like induction kits because they're subject to drawing in hot air from the engine bay even when fitted with a cold air feed. Hot air as you probably know reduces performance. Word on the forum is stick with a good panel filter

    I would advise you start a seperate thread for the lumpy tickover question

    The 1 series is a cute little car that oozes potential, I think they look great

    Thanks for the feedback & advise. I was looking to only change for a better panel filter, but what other "dry" ones are available ?
