    135i 360hp chip.

    Make your 135i an absolute beast with a simple £445 upgrade superchip with warranty to 360hp Smiley

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: 135i 360hp chip.

    The question is: is the warranty valid for the car or the "superchip" mod ? 

    Does the warranty include ALL repairs BMW may deny in connection with the superchip mod like for example transmission, drivetrain, etc. ?

    Sorry but all these pure chip tuning mods are crap in my opinion. A good tuner takes the car in, verifies/finetunes everything on that specific car, offers a full coverage warranty for denied repairs, etc. etc. etc.

    unfortunately, superchip only tunes the software.

    If BMW finds out a problem is occured on the car due to superchip software, the warranty won't be valid any more.

    In the end, you get what you pay for.

    Re: 135i 360hp chip.

    BMW Performance already provides a factory power kit which does not void the warranty. Although it is *only* 320 HP compared to the more powerful aftermarket kit above.

    The BMW Performance power kit for the BMW 135i further enhances your vehicle's already impressive engine output. The key to its effectiveness is the way that all the components have been designed to work together. The modified engine tuning parameters mean the engine generates higher temperatures – and so an additional radiator and air intakes, and a powerful 850-watt fan have been incorporated to deal with this extra heat. The maximum torque of the in-line six-cylinder engine is increased from 400 to as much as 450 Newton-metres, depending on the type of transmission, and power output rises from 225 to 240 kW. This improves acceleration both from 0 to 100 km/h (by 0.2 seconds over models without the power kit) and from 80 to 120 km/h (by 0.5 seconds in fifth gear).

    I would NEVER consider a superchip mod like this, but i thought it was interesting how much hp you can get out of a 135i. What a car, with weight and balance being such nice figures. I can imagine the 135i wich chip won't be more unrealiable than a stock GT-R

    Alpina just released the revised B3 with 400 hp / 540 Nm. Although in revised form, it says something about the base engine´s capabiliies.


    Re: 135i 360hp chip.

    The twin turbo 3 liter I6 is quite bullet proof from the factory, chippers can routinely gets 400 out of it very reliably. In fact, the engine pretty much comes out of the factory with more than the quoted 300hp.

    The new single turbo is more inline with the 300hp claim from BMW.


    Re: 135i 360hp chip.

    Not to mention you will have to tell your insurer and they will no doubt hike the premium by at least the £445 every year!   If you have do not declare it to the insurer (as many people are tempeted not to do), and you have an accident you could very quickly find out that you are in effect uninsured as the insurance company will use it as a reason to void the policy.

    I too would stay well clear of any such "cheap" power upgrade...
