A cheeky way to bump the thread.

The below is a post from the 1Addicts Commercial Sales forum.

Hey mate,

I suspect it is a function of build date.

The earlier 135i's such as yours have "8 bolt" flywheels, where as that later models such as mine utilise "6 bolt" units.

I am not sure if it's the same for 3 Series N54's.

I am fairly certain all the early model 335i's use a "8 bolt" unit, but I do not know if that also changed somewhere in the production cycle.

If in doubt I imagine quoting your VIN/Chassis number, to somebody like Dan@BMW United would allow you to determine what version of flywheel is required.
