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 a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Dyno Question

Hello All:

Just had my 2011 135i dyno-ed -- on the first pull, the engine red lined briefly at about 7,500 RPM before "coming back," (it was just a quick spike at just under 7,500) and pushed some dark grey/black smoke out of the exhaust for a few secs. This black smoke was (probably) from:

1) Oil burning off from somewhere
2) Carbon burning off the intakes
3) Something else that's insignificant
4) Something else that's significant
5) None of the above, I don't know what the hell I'm talking about.

Dyno Question

The answer is #3

The engine runs very rich when the throttle is wide open and the RPMs are high. This was probably just extra fuel trying to burn off but it didn't have enough oxygen to do it cleanly.
