BMW 1-Series used to be the only rear-wheel drive hatchback in the market and it was really fun car to drive. But BMW decided to make it as a front-wheel base car in the last generation. Many drivers were not happy with this but at least on the higher trims like the M135i the 1-Series is available with 4-wheel drive system.
As the BMW M135i is a direct rival to the Audi S3 Sportback and Mercedes-AMG A35, Dahler has introduced a new upgrade kit for it.
BMW M135i uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged four -cylinder engine that pumps out 306 hp and 450 nm of torque, but dahler took these numbers to 348 hp and 500 nm of torque.
With this extra power and torque the BMW M135i can now hit 100 kph in 4.8 seconds and reach the top speed of 265 kph. The top speed has also increased by 15 kph over the standard model. Dahler also installed a new exhaust system on the M135i that has 114-mm ceramic-coated tailpipes and an exhaust flap control.
Changes over the suspension system are new coilovers with lower springs. The new shock absorbers are also electronic damping models.
At the end the tuner put its large 20-inch forged wheels that are 30-35 percent lighter than BMWs standard wheels.
