Superchips have released their new performance boosting ECU remap for BMW's 135i Coupe / Convertible.
Superchips has upgraded the 135i’s power from a measured standard output of 315 hp to 360 hp, with a maximum power gain of 49 hp at 5,989 rpm. At the same time, the ECU remap brings the BMW’s torque up from a tested 394 Nm to 456 Nm a 3,359 rpm.
Superchips says that this kit doubles the joy of driving this little beast, specially as it drops the 0 to 60 mph sprint time to 5.6 seconds. But because the speed limiter has not been changed, it still can’t do more than 155 mph.
The price: £445.00 including VAT (€515) and Superchips offers a very relieving 12-month/30,000 mile guarantee, lest you're worried about your BMW dealer getting upset at you messing with their work of art.
