Hi everyone, i have a 08 135i e88. Guess its been near 2 years since i bought it. After alot of expensive work that i didnt expect to do. I finally got her running well. So I did all the necessary maintenance items gaskets and such.
Then started with mhd and the 30ff codes started. Changed everything from intakes to intake manifold.
Was 1. Warn turbo seals and loose wastegates
2. My oem inlet on rear turbo was not at all tight.
So as she sits now after pretty much continual work for as long as I've owned her.

When i first bought my car the suspension was shot so i had new oem suspension done. Figured id go with that for awhile until i figured out which way i wanted to go. Its about 20k miles on it now. So im starting to think about aftermarket setup now.

The turbo job was my 1st bigger under car on my back job I've attempted in near 20 years. I did last winter. The oem side vrsf inlets are a nightmare to fit and i popped a hole in my radiator trying to get the fan back in. So i added the csf radiator at that point.
I also had 2 o-ring leaks and had to have a friend go back in and fix them, at that point it was too cold to work in my garage.

Ive recently switched phones and guess i didnt save the last 3 months of pics i took. Which sucks . so all these pics are a year to 2 years old. I will get fresh ones this week and ad them. Alot is different

Future for this car is a smaller single turbo. I dont need 800hp, but 600 spooling a bit quicker would be nice. And the simplicity of a single with 1 oil line in and one out appeals to me.
My turbos still have less than 5k miles on them and ive already been back in there twice to fix oil leaks. Either i really suck with o-rings or i got a poor quality install kit because they were all brand new when i installed them. Im thinking precision 6062 or similar.

I have a rare opportunity to cryogenically freeze parts. My friends just purchased a chamber and need some test pieces. They are doing all their internals on there track cars, but i think i may pull the transmission. Disassemble it and freeze every part. Then pay someone to put it back together properly.

Also i been testing with carbon fiber. Id like to make new fenders for front and back and have them flared for better tire and wheel fitment. I dont like the widebody kits on the market. But i do like the 1m. So im trying to sort that out as well. I did some interior pieces with the real carbon, but realized the vinyl wrap looks cleaner and better so i ripped it all off and wrapped them. I have experience with vacuum infusion so i will test my skills soon
