Re: Sky won't cover my M240i

Is it your first RWD car?

A forum sponsor doesn't insure people in their first RWD car or if they step up a bit on power.

Re: How rare is the Mx40i? Under the radar.

Using How many Left... Interesting site (well, sort of :-)) Surprised to see that the sales of the 240 are as much as 2/3rds of the 140i, which wasn't quite the impression I'd taken from these boards and from what I've seen on the roads in my area. Mind you, when you plug in something like TT/S or ...

Re: Smart Meters.....Dumb Meters....

Does the next supplier still fit them for free? I thought there was grants on the table for fitting them?

It is a right waste and appears to be a way of trapping customers.

Re: Another 379 Alloy Wheel Corrosion

Diamond cut wheels just don't last.

I'd imagine that the dealer had the wheels refurbished before you bought the car if they were immaculate condition.

The places that offer diamond cut refurbishment usually only have short warranties.

Re: How rare is the Mx40i? Under the radar.

Using How many Left, which only covers up to the end of quarter 3 2016. We could be doing with quarter 4 figures to get a better idea of the M140i as it was just out. There is the 12,000 MK7 Golf Rs. It's hard to factor perfectly due to MK6s in the same numbers. There is 6800 M135is and 3500 M235is....

Re: How rare is the Mx40i? Under the radar.

The Golf R ended up selling huge numbers as it was a performance bargain due to all the cheaper deals. For the very same reason many people are now buying the M140i. It won't be a rare car in this sector.

I'm sure that most people looking for a car in this class know about the M135i/M140i.

Re: M140 dyno (don't look if you think they are 370 standard!)

A standard m135/m235 won't be trapping 112/113mph, they never have. That's more in line with the jb4 map 1 or tmc terminal speeds. 107/109mph is the average for an oem auto car from what I have seen. I'm heading to Crail this weekend (weather dependant) in my modified m135i. There may also be a jb4...

Re: Glad I didn't buy a Focus RS

Is that right? When the 2.3 was announced, that's the first thing I thought of but I think some people have denied it. It is. You'll find threads like this. The first on a Google search. The OP is surprised as he's just found out it's a Mazda engine. The second poster is surprised that he's just fo...

Re: Glad I didn't buy a Focus RS

My Mk2 was faultless, put a fair few fast road and track miles on it as well. A few isolated issues on the MK3 doesn't make it a bad car, will still hold its value way better than any M135 will. The issues aren't isolated though. There's far too many issues with them. Build quality straight from th...

Re: Baggy Dakota Leather - Being Replaced Under Warranty - UPDATED 24 Mar 17

You've come over precise on here and the photos are bloody obvious too. I can't see how the dealer can blame you for a lack of, or bad, communication.

Re: Evans Halshaw 'sell your car'

Update! Finally got around to going to Evans Halshaw with the ST today, more than happy with the outcome. Checked the paperwork, had a look around the car, noted down a few stone chips. Checked the tyre tread and alloys, checked the interior. Took some photos, started the engine and revved it a few...
