Fancy A Bit More Power For Your BMW M135i? Dahler Has A Solution

Having switched to a front-wheel drive construction, the latest BMW 1-Series is not that exciting to drive – at least not in lesser versions.

Things are a bit different in M135i xDrive guise, which goes up against the likes of the Audi S3 Sportback and Mercedes-AMG A35.

This example has paid a visit to Dahler, with the focal point being more power. Thus, the tuner has lifted the engine’s output to 348 PS (343 HP / 256 kW) and torque to 500 Nm (369 lb-ft).

That’s a 42 PS (41 HP / 31 kW) and 50 Nm (37 lb-ft) jump over the stock model, whose 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder enables it to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds and max out at 250 km/h (155 mph) top speed. There is no word on the new acceleration time, but the tuned Bimmer will now run out of breath at 265 km/h (165 mph).

Dahler has other parts in store for the new M135i xDrive, such as an exhaust system with 114-mm (4.5-in) ceramic-coated tailpipes, and an exhaust flap control for a more sonorous soundtrack.

There is also a coilover suspension or a lowering spring set built by the tuner, with the latter being optimized for the stock electronic damping.

As with most modern tuning jobs, this one also includes a set of large wheels. The ultra-light 20-inch forged set provides a 30-35 percent weight saving compared to the standard alloys and improves the dynamics of the car.

To find out how much each upgrade costs, interested parties will have to contact Dahler.
