N13 tuning

The older BMWs that could be driven hard, could not be tuned nearly as much.

I have driven the stock 116i on plenty of track days, and there were no issues. The brakes were slightly small for the purpose, but if you get one with M-Sport brakes, you will struggle to fade the brakes for sure.


Bellow you have the info regarding tuning and specs! no issue in life spam regarding tuning it to 220HP
