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.

Mein Auto: 2006 BMW Z4 3.0i
Just bought a 2008 135i that has been seriously tuned but I can't tell what.

I just bought a 2008 135i that seems to have been tuned by Dinan. I am not exactly sure but the suspension, exhaust, brakes, maybe ecu have been modified supposedly by Dinan. I spoke to a BMW dealer and they said all the parts are BMW approved... but that's not saying much coming from a salesman's mouth. The car is badass fast. How can I check what has been done and what Dinan parts are in it?

Many thanks. I drove a 2006 Z4 before this and this car is insanely fast.

Give Dinan your Vin# and they will be able to tell you what they have done.

BMW should also be able to give you all service records on the car.

Quick question, BMW should have all work done by Dinan?

Depends on if it was done by a BMW dealer.

Dinan also uses independent repair shops.

If you mean they should have a record of it, then yes. Providing it was done when it was new. As mentioned above, give Dinan your VIN and they can tell you whats been done to it.
