E82 BMW 135i gets Active Autowerke makeover

Active Autowerke is once again showcasing the ambition of an upstart and not wasting any time to prove that they’ve got what it takes to be chosen.

Not chosen by Hogwarts or Sauron, but chosen by you, the customer who wants his BMW’s life to be improved. If you have a Bavarian product that has lost its way, this is where it goes to a weight watcher program.

Actually, that’s not the most comprehensive part of the discussion. There is some weight loss, but it’s more of a makeover and gym schedule.

There’s some carbon fiber bits here and there and something in there that has Race Prep Weight Reduction package written on it but we get to find out later about that.

Starting off with the 335i’s twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter straight six engine, a massive amount of modifications is swung at it.

Its N55 stock power gets ramped up with a Signature exhaust system, an A+ ECU Management system and a Stage 2 Flash chip, an upgraded downpipe and finally, a custom charge pipe.

A new body kit comes fitted from Active Autowerke, featuring some carbon fiber, extended side skirts, replaced rear view mirrors and extended lips.

Finally, the list of changes comes with forged alloy R10 wheels. They are from the Strasse Forged collection, feature polished step lips and gloss black inner barrels.

These are borderline touching the fenders now that they’re riding on a set of Eibach R2 Coilovers instead of the standard suspension.

All I wish is I knew exactly what power gains we can expect from this.
