    hi there, what do you mean by increased top speed limiter… see i have a bmw 135i and as every bmw owner knows 155mph is the limit but by fitting this how much more speed is it increased?

    The original question does not stop with an absolute “yes” or “no” but is a two-part dilemma.              http://bit.ly/nx6Oqi

    The exhaust burble alone would make me want to install this kit! I had the Diesel Power Kit installed on my 320d LCI and it completely transformed my car. I can just imagine what this would do to an 135i. Don’t let the 0.3 and 0.5 second times be your deciding factor. These kits change a lot more that just add a few kilowatts. Here is how I experienced the Power Kit: http://showcars.co.za/bmw/bmw-performance-diesel-power-upgrade-review/
