Re: Not running in new M140i paranoia!

Salesman don't have a clue about anything on the cars they sell, i would go by the book, even the tyres and brakes need to be broken in for a few hundred miles

Re: M140i - fitting black kidney grilles

I just cut the slats in right side grille and put my hand through the large hole, took 5 minutes and no cuts, I had no intention of using the chrome grilles again so they went in the bin

Re: Auto Dimming Mirrors...?

At over £400 for the glass I'd be okay if neither side was auto dim, I think I was quoted close to £490 for the driver’s side, and that was with a discount as a family member works at the dealers, I ended up buying one off ebay which had probably been stolen from some poor owners car

Re: Standard exhaust - rusted tips

I have to say the tips on my M240 still look new, I wonder if they have changed the coating? Both my M135 and M235 needed the tips replacing after a few months, having said that I do give them a wipe with a rag every time I get home so maybe that helps Seriously?!

Re: 140 v 340

The 340 is a rapid car, I've not noticed much difference going from a 340 to a 240 in power

Re: 230/M240i opinions

I'd say there's very little difference in MPG, maybe 5 MPG, I know these are two different cars with different engines but I had a 428i and a 435i, there was only about 4 MPG difference, 428 was a 2L 435 was 3L, the 2L needs to be worked a little harder to get it going

Just take them off and get them painted. That’s what I did. It’s the cheapest option and keeps all parts OEM.
I did much the same only I bought two OEM caps, still cost less than carbon I got them painted sapphire black and I can always put the grey back if needed :D

Re: M240i Options & Retrofits

I wouldn't bother trying to keep it under £40k unless you're very close to start with, you're only talking about an extra £310 a year

Ok, I’ll try the stealers first and see what they say, I’m not sure I could tear the whole mirror down myself.

£100 quid kick in the teeth I can take if that’s what I can get away with them fitting it.
It's very easy to fit if the glass is out, just a few screws

I've been driving for 32 years without winter tyres in RWD cars, and in those 32 years I've had 0 accidents :P

I think the biggest contributor to my lack of mileage is a relatively pitiful 1.5 mile commute.

A car isn't necessary for me, but I couldn't be without one :D
That's a walk, not a commute! :shock: :D
