When BSR launched tuning kits for BMW cars we had an idea of making an exciting project car. We pictured a car that was really enjoyable to drive and also very all-round and suitable for many different situations. There should also be a strong connection between the car and the BSR product range. After considering this we finally decided to go for the smallest 1-series, and we purchased a BMW 120d.
BSR has performed an extremely advanced installation, one that BMW doesn't offer from the factory. We have converted a BMW 1-series from a four cylinder turbodiesel to a six cylinder diesel with biturbo. In order to handle the increased power and torque, the automatic gearbox as well as the front and rear subframe are exchanged. This installation has been very demanding. Besides the extensive mechanical work done on the car, we also had to solve complicated software issues in order to get the control systems of the new automatic gearbox and engine to cooperate and work perfectly with the electronics and comfort systems already present in the car. The car is also equipped with a number of exterior and interior details according to the specification below. The power output and torque is now increased to a strong 340Hp and 700Nm.
