Change for the best

Autocar - - LETTERS -

I was very happy to see the first re­port on the BMW M135i that you are plan­ning to mod­ify (Our Cars, 16 Au­gust).

As car mad as we must be to buy mag­a­zines ev­ery week, I too en­joy mod­i­fy­ing my BMW M3 (E46) in sub­tle ways to en­hance its al­ready­im­pres­sive per­for­mance.

For me, up­graded eight-pis­ton brakes on the front were re­quired af­ter al­most set­ting fire to the stock items on track not long af­ter pur­chase. Since then, poly bush­ing all round plus the dreaded boot floor re­pair/up­grade have re­sulted in a much more con­trolled ride.

Of course, the en­gine has been remapped, with a slightly fruitier (but still neigh­bour-friendly) ex­haust sys­tem added. I look for­ward with great in­ter­est to see your car de­velop. Kerry Gid­dings Bewd­ley, Worcs Read about the first up­grade to our M135i on page 72 – MB
