If you want it to sound like more like a GTR get some vrsf catless downpipes, Berk Midpipes and Berk Race Exhaust. You can hear my exhaust in my videos.

The 135i rear end likes to get loose. It's a common thing with 135i's.

Get Index 12 injectors as well.

Get the Supra B58 coils and Nexsys Conversion Kit. Will save you from having to replace them often. Bosch and Delphi are the two most common coils. The output is practically the same.

You can turn off the wastegate rattle with mhd as well.

Save yourself time and buy mhd. It will give you all the codes and you can clear them.

The 135i and 1M are the two best BMWs that have been made other than the E46 M3 and M2. And the N54 is the best engine bmw has ever created. If you don't know how to maintain it than you will have issues. Mine has never left me stranded on the road.

I DIDN'T THINK THIS CHANNEL COULD GET ANY WORSE UNTIL YOU FLOOR IT ON A COMPLETELY COLD ENGINE not just once but twice. Until the oil temp is up it doesn't matter if you let it idle for 1.7 minutes or not. wow smh Not sure that you deserve a n54.

MediocreMan Місяць tagasi
I think it's funny when you refer to the 135i as lining up with the somewhat modern legacy of BMW. It doesn't at all. Manual, Naturally Aspirated, lightweight, and small is what it should be. And that lines up more with the 128i actually. The 135i is heavier on the front end than the 128i, and therefore doesn't turn in as easily and understeers more, and obviously the reliability issues are huge compared to the 128i. What a knob of a previous owner though. Doesn't address the most common issues like an oil filter housing gasket? That failure can literally suck your accessory belt into the engine. No really, google it. Probably didn't change the water pump yet either, so look forward to that, and possibly the valve cover gasket, then of course the oil pan gasket is leaking too, another form of neglect. The headlights need polishing, and who the hell spends hundreds on mods, but leaves those horrible flat, seats in? If you really want the most authentic BMW experience you can get in a somewhat modern car, get a 128i with sport suspension, sport seats, and xenons if you can, and of course a manual transmission.

Is there any reason that the n54 was chosen instead of the n55? Seems more reliable, although less tuneable. I'm a little biased though since I own a 2012.
EFRANEED Місяць tagasi
I think Hoovies is exaggerating on the engine aspect, also, if you would want some more reliability on the same car, just get the n55.... I do not understand all the trash thrown at the car. I have a 130i, N52 more reliable but still I dont think the N54 is just that shit unless you threat it like the one in this video

There's been many times my n54 was misfiring but last time all I did was take the engine cover off spray out any moisture or oil in the spark plug galley.

I wish you had legitimate complaints about these cars. More N54's are 400whp+ than not, and they don't blow. Plenty of people have made 700+whp without a headgasket/studs, completely unopened engine. You buy a 13 year old car with meth injection, this is what you get. Buy an Evo and replace the clutch, buy an STi and try to get 350whp. Doing spark plugs on these takes 30 minutes. Try doing them on a 3000gt VR4. Turbo a 350z and the block will crack at 425whp. BMW's have their failures no doubt, but please learn a smidge more about what you're talking about.

Miss my 135i - modded with brakes and suspension to close to 1M spec, but left the power alone since the engine was so suspect. Fortunately had all the HPFP and turbos done under warranty. I never should have sold it, but when the AC condenser started leaking it became "track or sell"... Ah well. Died in a flood 2 years later.

The engines are not glass, forged crank on the early cars, forged rods and tough pistons. What is weak is what is bolted to the engine. Coils and plugs are the biggext isdue and they are maintenance items. The turbos are fine but the wastegate shaft bores wear, they can be rebushed and reused. The HP fuel pumps were mostly fixed under warranty. The other big issue are the injectors, yes they fail. Many guys also modify then are slack on maintenance. And after all of the BMW hate it was just a coil, a non standard coil as well. The handling issue was just a leaking shock, lol.

The N54 deserves worship because so few turbocharged inline sixes came to the US, and so few were available with a manual. Drive a 2JZGTE or a 1JZGTE or a RB20/25DET and you realize that the turbo inline six is just so sublime. If the N54 weren't a basketcase it might deserve further accolades, but really its only special because is the only readily available turbo inline six for US buyers.

what you're feeling in the rear end is the crazy soft rear subframe bushings. originally the car had run-flats. Once you add normal tires and stiffer suspension all that energy gives at the subframe bushings. The best thing to do is add solid aluminum bushings. TC Kline is a good recourse for these suspension-wise. Also might as well go with some pure turbo upgrades as well.
