Re: P/x old car - Neg Eq

I managed to get near enough 10k knocked off mine, from just under 39k to just over 29k.
Only looked at the first page, so not sure if the chat has moved on since then :lol:

Re: Be Careful with this M140i!!!! UPDATED!!

I've got a spare weekend coming up - and live not too far away. Tempted to take it for a test drive to find out if it's been repaired or not.

Re: Official ///M badge wa**er thread

Embarrassing story for me the other day.

Saw an X5 coming towards me, indicating to go into a driveway with the 3 stripes on the front grill. I let them go, and rolled my eyes as I saw the striping, only to look at the back and see it was actually an X5 M50d :lol: oops

Is this an issue or am I going...

Re: Hi

Hi, picking up my 2014 Series 116d Sport next week. Just curious, but with the 3 cars all classed as 2.0 ltr, is it just the same engine but just tweeked to make it a 116d, 118d or 2.0d. So if I wanted to at a future date, get it remapped to a 118d or 2.0d power? Or is it more complicated than that...

Re: M140i / M240i build status updates - where are you at?

Having been through this wait a couple of months ago (2 to the day to be exact), it's definitely worth it! I've done 5,000 miles in mine so far and I've loved every moment of it. Don't worry about the fuel range in the first 1200 miles, it does improve after and by quite a decent margine too. Congra...

Re: Help! - Instrument Panel Failure - Updated with video

Having the exact same issue in the same place at Manchester Airport when using the satnav. I've just started a new job in Altrincham and having to drive past the airport daily, this is happening every evening and it's f'kin annoying! Which dealership did you guys go to that offered the software fix...

Except that Sport on a motorway still uses 8th......
But won't it still use a little bit of fuel on the over-run when you let off? Therefore worse MPG surely?

Re: Intermittent Horn

Have you had the airbag removed and put back in at all?

Could be it's somehow become misaligned. Worst case it'll probably have to be a new module on the steering wheel. Best bet is to get the dealer to have a quick look over it.

Re: 118i mpg

I had a 1.4 TSI VW Scirocco a few years back and I would consider it good when I got over 40mpg, usually it was in the low 30s. When getting the M140i I couldn't quite believe that it would get a similar mpg to engines half the size - the best I've got so far is 47.5mpg on a 30 mile run. Not quite ...

Re: Facelift F20/21 new dashboard?

New dash looks awful! Why does the trim insert stop about 3/4 of the way across? Looks terrible.
