Time for update.

Car has complete 34000 Km in less than a year.

Last service was done at 30K km's costing Rs 27K. Ouch
Changed
Motor Oil
Oil filter
Air Filter
AC Filter

Nothing fancy no car wash, no wheel balancing / alignment. Just the above.

Replaced tyres at 34K. Rear one busted in the city.
New tyre size
265/35/18
235/40/18

Got brake pad set from Tisher BMW so can replace them anytime.
Other than this there is no problem with the car. However there is a little whine from the factory radio.. reported it last time at service however didnt get resolved.

Why would you put 265s on a 180bhp car? I mean your slowing the car down.

Thank you for you replying.. I still have wheel spin sometimes. and not at all... everyone at the bimmerpost forum reccommend this upgrade. Car is much smoother now.

And the tires are Yoko Advan and costed 54K.

I think its due to more weight at the front tires. Thats why you have such a nice Dyno stats.

Throw in some FFE to have a bit more fun. Cheers

I have done coding in my car:

So Now I have
1. Closing of ORVM on lock and auto opening on unlock
2. Angel Eyes as DRL
3. No driver seat belt chime
4. BMW M3 like speed display on screen

Heres my car. Rims painted same colour as our M3(red with grey rims). Its remapped by Kiirus from 177bhp to 208bhp and the power is become crazy. Brake calipers painted yellow. Up sized the rear tires to 225/50 from 205/55.

Also would like to ask you a few questions.

How did you do the coding? I want to keep my Angel Lights as daytime running and also auto close ovrms.

How much did you pay for the performance kit? (Bumpers + rear spoiler)

Looks good indra. I remember seeing your car outside Mambos, in May. You should change the angel eyes to white, it will look much better.

BMW Coding Forum check here.

where did you order it from ebay or one of the website suggested cable's for coding ? A lot of material seems to be available to code the E90, however there seems to be next to nothing available to code the X1.Any place you could suggest via PM.Do you think coding would void the BSI?

How come the car is still running on temporary plates. What happened to the PJO 3 number?
BTW doesn't re-mapping void the warranty.
