Re: Has anyone got the M performance mats?

Strange colours and pattern...don't really match anything IMO

Might suit someone...

Not a franchised dealer but price seems reasonable for a decent spec,low miles example.

Re: 2000 miles and still smiling what next ?

You need to buy Autocar mag this week and read their "Hot hatch mega test".

The 8 cars are:
Audi RS3
Merc AMG A45
Focus RS
Civic type R
BMW 140i
Golf R
Pug 308 GTI
Seat Leon Cupra 300

Plenty of this type of car to choose from at present.

Re: New air con condenser m140

Would it be unreasonable to think that BMW should be issuing a service recall to install some sort mod to prevent this?

In the meantime I'll have a think about doing something myself!

Re: Glacier Silver dropped?

Isn't white one of the no cost options though, which is why it's popular? I have GS. I'll make a mental note when it's time to sell! White is the only colour that has no extra cost! This sharp marketing practice,forcing you towards an extra cost option,is now being used by other makers as well as B...

Re: floor mats

Nice mats and would look good with a red exterior or red leather.
...but be careful,I think these are 3 series mats,no sign of them under 1 series on BMW accessories site.

Re: Manual m235i. Slow, slow, slow....

In some circumstances the auto will be faster,in others the manual will be,but this doesn't address the OP's point where he says there's a BIG difference.
IMO some fault finding is called for...and the most obvious thing could be a boost leak.

Cheap Wheels

Looking at a spare set/winter wheels. I like this style and personally still prefer silver to the now popular grey or black. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alloy-wheels-for-BMW-1-series-and-2-series-3-series-18-inch-hypersilver-set-of-4-/172692845438?fits=Car+Make%3ABMW%7CModel%3A1+Series&hash=item28354b...

Re: F21 New door - colour match?

If you have to have paint done I don't see why they would have to do anymore than the door itself.
Alpine white is a straight colour and should match,it's metallics that can need blending in to the adjoining panels.
Saying otherwise helps BMW get the quote up... :wink:

Re: M240i LCI, What other upgrades....

Those Alcantara wheels look good but when I had one I found it more slippery than leather.

Re: You can now configure a shadow edition online in the UK

So what is the Shadow Edition then? Is it like Peugeot and Renault used to do all the time - add a sticker and suddenly its a special edition? Pretty much,the few differences are nothing to get excited about. Not quite, most people on here spec their cars nicely and this bundles some of the most po...

Re: Oyster or Cognac leather?

Oyster works with black IMO,subject to cleaning issues.
Cognac would be fine with Melbourne red,but not much else I think.
