Hello There, Guest! Login — Register. Thread Rating: 17 Vote s - 2. Threaded Mode Linear Mode. Hi everyone, Just wondering if one can add a turbo charger or supercharger kit to an E90 i. A few questions then to those more knowledgeable. If one had to do this, would it reduce the engine lifespan? Will the car still be safe and reliable? Second question, has anyone on this forum added a turbo or supercharger to their E90?
Third, what will the costs be involved? I took my brother for a spin in the car and in 2nd gear and up, it felt really, really slow. I mean, I don't know if there is something wrong or if the i just naturally is slow, but it took a heck of a long time to gain speed.
Overtaking speed was hilarious, in a bad way. Air-con was off but perhaps it was the added weight of my brother. Do other i owners have similar experiences?
Finally, a really dumb question do different fuel types really affect performance? I've been told to put in premium unleaded in my E90 i but most of the petrol stations I've been to only have regular unleaded.
Does it really make an impact? Must I change my fuel? The costs involved in turbo or supercharging a i is definitely not worth it.
E90 Turbo Kit 2006+ Stage 1
Sell the car and rather buy a i. It would be more reliable and probably be cheaper to. The i was never a performance car, and I highly doubt if higher octane fuel will make a difference. I don't think you can charge ashould be able to turbo it, but if reliability is what you are looking for rather save your money get a But as the other members have said, it is really not worth charging a i.
The cost involved would be R30k plus! I have to agree with the rest, if you want high performance rather go for the i, it is already turbocharged and modifying that would definitely give huge returns!
Rather get a i. Thanks for the response guys. So then basically my only option is to get a chip and freeflow exhaust?
That's basically it in a nutshell?Original Poster. Search My Stuff What's New 3 12 24 E92 i vs i Comparisons. Prev of 4 2 3 4 Next. I have a pal who has been looking at buying the latest E92 coupe's and was looking at the i and the i not the diesel for once!!!!
From what i've read the i is pushing bhp and i'm sure the later ones are a tad more but what surprises me is the i is only pushing just over 30bhp more. Dont get me wrong its a stonking good car and will have a good wallop of torque more than the i but is it really that much better than the i? What puts my pal off is some of the horror stories about the turbo's especially as his budget will dictate that if he buys the i it will be a higher mileage version, he's looked at the i which looks relatively gutless in this company but the i seems a good compromise between that and the i and it also seems economical for a 3 litre engine.
Has anyone driven both and is he justified in that he will have less to worry about if he buys the NA version as it basically has less to go wrong. So what are your thoughts? Thanks chaps.
I told him to stop being tight and to buy an E92 M3 but he nearly fell over when i told him the second hand prices and mpg figures lol. ASR1 posts months. The reason why it is only putting 30 or so bhp more than the is that the i uses the engine from the E46 as a starting point, whereas the E9X engine is a newer design. Both cracking cars and the s do seem to have a few issues with reliability so I'd only have one with a decent warranty on it. JNW1 4, posts months. My mate has ended up ploughing thousands into his replacing all manner of pumps and both turbos.
Fantastic car but it must come with a good warranty that covers these parts. I understand they are a common problem. MSXY posts months. I've has my i since new early facelift single turbo and, touch wood, not had any problems except the rear cup holders packing up three weeks into their life. If you want a fun car then i, if he wants a quick motorway mile muncher that is effortless but also not that rewarding the i.Tuning a car is a delicate thing.

This Stage 2 Performance Package comes with a variable-length intake manifold and our Mosselman ECU Remap that will release the hidden power of your i to i specifications!
The variable-length intake is opening the first valve around rpm and the second valve around rpm, changing pulsation exactly like the stock BMW i. The installation time for the performance package is approximately 3,5 hours.
Installation and back to stock can be done by any official Mosselman Dealer, or at home with the iMoss DIY solution that we offer. Professional tuning requires a steady hand and we want to be solely responsible for getting the most out of your car.
Because most modern engines are heavily restricted due to emission regulations, an ECU remap or installation of an engine control unit is always the first step towards unlocking the performance your BMW or Mini is capable of. However, as our name implies, we do have upgraded turbos, should you be in the market for one. In addition, Mosselman Turbo Systems offers more efficient intake and exhaust systems, oil thermostats, oil coolers, and intercoolers.
With Mosselmans' performance package I exceeded even more than the company advertised on their website! The information sharing process was easy and hassle-free. Excellent customer service from Leon and his team!
Mosselman tuned my BMW d today. What a result, it became a completely different car! Very professional company and friendly staff. This was my second car here and again they have exceeded my expectations.
Very happy with my improved car, the car reacts better on the throttle and is very direct. Also, the exhaust sounds better! Visited Mosselman on May 24th for the chip tuning of my i, great result!
The adjustment is great, when will you post the photo on FB :? After 1,5 years still very happy with my iTronic. By far the best upgrade I could have done with my BMW i.

Cars with run-flats are not equipped with a spare tyre. Introduced in it uses the BMW S65 naturally aspirated V8 engine and was produced in sedan, coupe and convertible body styles.
The design for the fifth generation 3 Series was frozen in mid, approximately 30 months before the start of production.
E92 330i vs 335i Comparisons
The range was introduced in March for MY with the sedan and wagon body styles. Production of the E90 concluded after the model year, succeeded by the F30 for Trim levels typically were similar to the E90 sedan, however the M3 wasn't produced in the wagon body style. Several markets outside Europe only offered a small subset of models in the wagon body style. In the United States and Canada, the only wagon model available prior to was the xi,  and then the i and xi from onwards.
These include the tail-light design L-shaped on the coupemore steeply angled headlights and smaller side windows. For later generations, these body styles are marketed as the 4 Series. The E93 convertible was BMW's first model to use a retractable hardtop folding metal roofinstead of the cloth roof as previously used. The E93 was one of first retractable hardtops in its price range. The E93's side windows are 30 percent larger than its E46 convertible predecessor, resulting in a 38 percent increase in visibility.
Official specifications are as follows: . At the front, MacPherson struts with an aluminum hub carrier and aluminum dual lower links forming a virtual pivot point are used. This design was previously for used on all 5, 7 and 8 series BMW models. The rear suspension is a 5-link Multi-link suspensionwith fabricated steel subframe, fabricated steel control arms, and cast iron carrier.
Optional features some of which are standard on higher models include Xenon headlamps, automatic climate control, parking sensorspower-adjustable seats, satellite navigation, glass sunroof, heated front seats, Bluetooth and USB audio input. Optional equipment could be ordered individually or combined into packages.
Optional interior colours, known as BMW Individual, were also available at extra cost. The contents of the 'Premium Package' varies according to model year and market. The B3 was powered by turbocharged 6-cylinder petrol engine and the D3 was powered by a turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine.
Its position in the model lineup was between the regular i and the M3, and approximately 4, units were produced. The is uses a higher performance version of the N54 engine, which increases boost from 8. Transmission options were a 7-speed double clutch transmission DCT with launch control or a 6-speed manual transmission.
The manual transmission has an upgraded clutch compared to the regular i. Other changes compared to the i include stiffer engine mounts, a higher-flow exhaust system, an upgraded cooling system, a different steering wheel, sport seats and "is" badging on dash and in the instrument cluster.
In Septemberthe facelift LCI versions of the sedan and wagon were released for the model year. Styling changes included front and rear bumpers, wing mirrors, headlights, taillights, boot lid, wider kidney grilles and revised crease lines for the bonnet. The new xDrive models received xDrive badges on the bumper and both the right and left sides right below the side marker lamps.
For the interior, crash-activated head restraints were added to the front seats, the optional "Professional" navigation system was updated, iDrive was updated and the resolution of the display was increased.
For the model year,  the Sport, Lifestyle and Exclusive Edition were introduced for sedan and wagon models. The d wagon model was added, as was the d EfficientDynamics Edition sedan. Mechanical changes included compliance with the EU5 emission standard, EU6 emission compliance optional for the d and d models, power increases for the d, d, d and d models, the N54 engine in the i being replaced by N55 engine, and additional features for BMW ConnectedDrive.
The Euro NCAP noted the poor pedestrian protection awarding 4 points out of 36, reporting the 3 Series was "very disappointing" in this measure.Log in or Sign up. Post Count: 18 Likes Received Just had the Z4 in for service and we had a xi as a loaner and my wife fell in love with it.
I enjoyed it too but I don't think that BMW's should be awd. However that's a topic for another thread. Anyway we went and looked at the CPO lot at the local dealer and came across an 06 i 6mt with sport package and low miles 13k it is a beautiful car.
Crimson Red, aluminum trim, black leather. So owners tell me what you think. I was going to go and drive it on Friday and see what I think. Pros and Cons are appreciated. I know that the is the ultimate motor for the E90 but as I am looking into a for myself we don't need 2 twin turbo I-6s in the driveway. Thank you in advance for your input owners. CwalshNov 5, Post Count: 8 Likes Received The car has been reliable for me and I believe for the previous owner.
This is our sixth BMW and I love the way it drives and handles. It still puts smiles on my face but, I miss having a dipstick, coolant gauge and spare tire. I'm bothered that I do not know how hot the engine is running.
If I buy non-runflats, I need a spare or an emergency kit. If I buy a spare, I lose most of the trunk space. In spite of the above, I love BMW's in general and this one in particular. I agree that the run flats and a lack of dipstick make all new BMWs different than those we have owned in the past. That's why you need to own a few. CwalshNov 6, Post Count: 44 Likes Received I don't own abut I drove one last week as a loaner when my was in for service, so I can compare the two The doesn't give up much power.
The most noticeable difference is less low end torque.
But if you use the 6 speed to keep it in the power band, there is plenty of HP for spirited driving. The non-turbo engine uses a time proven design, and may be a better bet for long-term ownership that's why I am leasing my car. If you have found a car with the options you like, I think you wil be happy. This is the best 3 series that I have owned I think the handling is equal to the stock E36 M3. Post Count: 1 Likes Received The i is a great car and wonderful compromise if your in the market to purchase at less than 40k.
At hp and ft. It is however a huge difference over the or as is the to the Just a note: Was the Crimson Red offered in ? I believe the only two reds offered are barrique metallic red and electric red.We aim to deliver on our promise to provide soccer predictions for all our users.

Packed with expert commentary and forward-thinking advice, this whitepaper arms you with the knowledge you need to stay competitive in the years ahead. The proliferation in recent years of transparent, sustainably conscious companies such as Warby Parker and Everlane has initiated a radical shift in the retail industry one we can expect to gain greater traction in 2017. Instead, shoppers have begun gravitating toward retailers who reveal all the inner workings of their operations.
Everlane, for example, details the entire production costs of their products: materials, labor, duties, and markup. They also include information on the factories in which products are made, complete with pictures and videos of the employees and factories themselves.
Stores providing unique in-store experiences will thrive. Retailers who can provide unique in-store experiences will be king in 2017. Finding ways to match and exceed the seamlessness of online shopping.
Most retailers are attempting to do this by creating omnichannel shopping experiences in other words, by bringing the amenities of the online world into brick and mortar stores. Customers can use the tablets to scan barcodes and learn additional information about products, to add items to wishlists, and to enlist the help of sales associates in gathering those wishlist items.
As in-store experiences become increasingly important to consumers, we can expect to see more retailers invest in similar initiatives. Retailers across the board will adopt mobile payment solutions. Mobile payments are the way of the (immediate) future. At the end of 2016, projections say there will be 447. And if the predictions are any indication, missing out on those sales could mean missing out on a lot of money.
Businesses that are making the transition need to think ahead and seek solutions that will support contactless to future-proof their EMV upgrade. Consumers like to tap, and businesses need to set themselves up for success in this area.
With Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay continuing to expand into North America and globally, the importance of being able to accept contactless transactions will increase.
Consumers will expect to be able to pay the way they want, and businesses will need to evolve as their customer expectations change. When it comes to store size, less will be more in 2017. To further understand why shoppers seem to be moving away from larger stores, we need to look at another big trend in the retail industry: the importance of convenience and accessibility.
When people can shop online and have items delivered to their homes in a matter of hours, it takes the promise of a quick, easy experience to entice them to make the trip to an actual physical location. Instead, they want ease and efficiency in the form of smaller stores with specialized selections. There are other benefits to smaller stores as well. They cost less money to open and operate, and they take up less space in urban environments, allowing retailers to capitalize on the potential of large population centers.
Personalization will become increasingly important to consumers.Fifth Conference on the Statistical Methods in Psychometrics will be held at Department of Statistics, Columbia University in the city of New York on November 17-18, 2017.
