In Reply to: 735i aftermarket performance options? posted by Mike W. on January 07, 2001 at 18:33:34:

I'm buying a 1990 735iL w/ 140K tomorrow as a new daily driver. (My other car is a '93 RX7). I don't particularly care for the light blue color (rather have black or white), but it's a sweet car and a great deal.

I understand that this is a luxury car, not performance oriented, but I want performance too. I understand that there are serveral aftermarket chips, exhausts, suspension setups, intakes, etc. available and I'd like to take advantage of any technology that will increase performance without sacrificing reliablility or too much gas mileage.

Can anyone suggests some reasonable performance modification options for this car?


Mike, I have installed a K&N filter, a conforti chip, B&B Cat back custom exhaust,(which I'm thinkg of selling) slotted rotors and metallic pads...The chip is excellent performer...Exhaust is nice as well. I have an '88 5 speed. My neighbor has a 90 535 auto with the chip and he love the mid range power.
