E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
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.

Thanks! Much appreciated. I will request that part. I can't find the link for NTSB complaints. Can you post?

Absolutely. Once it gets through the warm-up phase it is totally reliable.

My sister has already had the fuel pump on her car changed 3 times and I believe the injectors changed twice. That fuel pump issue is a major issues on these Turbos.
