Re: Being done for speeding.

Mine was 3 points, 08:00 on a Sunday morning on empty roads. "Road safety" van, not even decent enough to be manned by coppers! License to print money.

Re: RE: Re: Being done for speeding.

You won't get the chance of doing an awareness course for that speed. In a 30 limit you may be offered the course up to 35mph only. It's gonna be a fine and points I'm afraid :( Cameras are set to allow discrepancy so 10% mechanical error and 3mph human. They only charge for 37 mph+ and the speed a...

Re: M3/m4 style mirrors - installed

Never been a fan of the M3/4 mirrors, I've always felt the M2 should have carbon ones as standard. Saying that they do look good on your's, not sure why the negative comments above - seems harsh.

Re: 2 series m sport grilles

If your after the twin slat grille like the M2 they are easily found on eBay, as are the all black M Performance type grilles if you don't fancy BMW dealer prices.

Re: AVON ZV7 TYRES

Not had ZV7 but did have ZZ5s on my Scirocco, very good dry grip, not as sticky as MPSS in the wet stuff though.

Re: 405M replica wheels.

They do look decent, prefer them in an 18" personally.

Re: Man vs Auto.

Auto box in sport/manual mode using paddles = total control, responsive, rapid. In comfort mode the sat Nav feeds into the system to predict gear changes = lazy, relaxed, comfortable. Two cars for the price of one! Manual box requires continual input, when I'm sat in traffic why would I want to be i...

Re: The M235i photo thread

Just aesthetics so far, M2 grill, M Performance splitter, black roof wrap and mirrors. Carbon spoiler next then maybe MPE exhaust. Thinking about powder coating wheels gloss black.

Re: Side foil removal

Are you sure you're not seeing the blades under the foil. This is a trim screwed into the sill and can be painted so giving the appearance that the foil is fitted too high.

Re: 19" Wheels - Pros and Cons

My Scirocco had active suspension and 19s and was still very harsh ride. My 235i has stock 18s and I wouldn't consider going bigger. If I swap the rims it will be for a lighter 18 of the same offset and width.
