BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

2008 bmw 135i

Hi,Im planning on buying a used 2008 135i with 60000km that includes dinan stage 2 ,IT had all the current recalls done.I read about the wastegate,and hearing it on this car is very faint.Is this a future problem?
If someone can let me know what are some things to check or know about the car,I would appreciate it.I will have it inspected but if I can look for the easy thing my self that would be good.The inspection that I would get gives me an option to have a compression test done any thoughts if its needed?
Thanks in advance!
