Anyone got any tips on the missing fog lights? Pity they left the hole ...
Other then that: super happy with the car.
Buy a set of fog likes and install they don't need to work. I looked at doing the same on my first car the same basic car as yours but replaced the car.

I think these cars look better without the foglights. Just like the M135i.

Nice LCI there m8.

Is the carbon trim around the front "intakes" a genuine BMW M Performance accessory or have you wrapped them?

I would rather see no fog-lights on all 1,2 series. BMW should not just use a blank covering the foglight hole it is cheap locking they should have a complete pvc panel.

I agree. Foglights are redundant anyway. The last five years, I think I have used them once. When I had an E30 318iS, I disassembled the foglights and sold them, replacing them with plastic covers!

I'm really curious if anyone has decent pictures of a 5-door LCI M-Sport model in that colour. I really like how it hides that rear bumper under darker conditions as the taillights already make the rear look wide enough.

Back to BW Chiptune today.

On the dyno to see gains with refettled map 6 on new EWG board, ff and EWG wires, sports cat, AFE ram air scoop and AFE dry drop in filter



Car came up to 395bhp/460lbft with 16.5 psi and AFRs remaining safely in the early 12's at upper rev range.

On the road, car feels smoother and more progressive than before on new map6. Sounds different too, in a good way, more lusty.

When you get on the gas, it's even more of hoot 400+ lbft of torque from 2000 - 4750 rpm.......



Had a good chat with Jason. He has bought an EWG M135i to do some development work on to remap DME to improve fuelling and use map 6 on jb4 to control boost. I've asked him to keep me posted.....

As ever, top service from Jason and the guys at BW Chiptune.

Put some new wheels on today. Really happy with them, but I think it may need to be a little lower now.
