Re: M140i Clutch Judder

Mine did this a couple of times the other day, not done it since but I think it was down to how I was pulling away.

I believe they do have DMFs so this may be why.

Re: My m140i

What I don’t understand is if you had enough money left over to buy a new set of wheels and tyres and all that cosmetic stuff, why didn’t you just buy a straight car to begin with?

Re: Might sell my 2016 - M135i

Those prices don’t sound that horrific; I paid £22k for my manual 5dr M140i a few months ago from a dealer.

Re: Cat S M140i

If you spend £19,000 on that you’re a blithering idiot! Quite apart from the safety issues, you’ll lose your shirt when you want to sell it; no reputable dealer will take it as trade in and you’ll end up selling it for a pittance to some gullible fool who is taken in by the flash looking wheels and ...

Re: Dust repellent

Anyone found a product that wards off the dust on the exterior paintwork? My Sapphire Black car is always dusty as hell within hours of polishing it!!

Re: Fitted this bad boy in my F20 yesterday :D

I’m really tempted by one of these but the reports of poor sound quality put me off; have they resolved these issues yet? I’ve got an October 2016 F21 M140i with Business Nav (EBT/Nat as standard) and Harmon Kardon. I generally plug my iPhone into the usb and use the native Spotify app. The cosmeti...

Re: Knocking from steering when dry steer left to right??

From what I’ve read, a minor knocking noise when steering left to right with the engine off is normal. Mine does it. If the engines running though it doesn’t make any noise.

Re: Decontaminating your Paintwork

I use Trolls Breath for fallout, I got 10 litres for £36.99 on eBay and bought a cheap ‘pump action’ sprayer from Pound-stretcher for about £2. Much cheaper this way than buying it in small trigger bottles which also tire your hands out. It works really well. I use it on my alloys every time I clean...

Re: Can the police seize a dashcam for evidence?

I’m happy to help with stuff I know about but I work in a very narrow area of policing that’s about as far away from traffic law as it gets so my knowledge of that area is a bit rusty!!! 😆

Re: Exhaust tip removal

Plenty of WD40 and some taps with a hammer loosened mine off so I’ve managed to put the OE tips back on which I much prefer 😎

Re: Can the police seize a dashcam for evidence?

S32 Pace is another power commonly used to enter a premises without your permission. Re the original question; police most certainly can seize your dashcam or the footage within it if they suspect it contains evidence of an offence. I suspect it’s something that will happen more and more often as a...
