I have my steering in comfort mode when in Sport. Much better for the track IMO
How do you do that then ?
When you go into sport mode you can configure the settings on the idrive
But you still have DTC off and DSC on when its in sport.

Nearly 3 grand FFS!!!! :-), can't see her coughing up that much. Nice to see it's being done properly tho'.
The only thing getting done here is the TPs insurers and the rest is us paying inflated premiums. That’s quite frankly disgusting from BMW!

Re: Folding mirrors - Coding Issue?

You need to code the following:

- Comfort opening with Key Fob.
- Unfold mirrors when unlocking vehicle with comfort closing.
- Comfort closing with key fob
- Comfort closing with comfort access
- Fold mirrors when locking vehicle with comfort closing.

All sat in FEM under Bimmercode regular mode.

Re: New M240i or used F10 M5?

£30-£35k to use spend on a weekend toy wouldn’t have me looking at it 240s or M5s.

Something with a crescent and mid engined would be top of my list!

Why spec a car like that with most options ticked but not pro nav? Other than that, lovely spec and great colour.

Re: BMW Shame on you!

I'm a little confused at the what the issue is? Theres been talk of a CS/CSL/GTS version for over a year. A lot of details have been leaked, i think the only real surprise is the price but given the way the M2 values have started to tumble its still around a £10k uplift and more by the time the firs...

Re: Halifax HP/PCP

I got a loan from Halifax for 3.3% for the balance of my e92 M3 almost three years ago. Rates have changed slightly but sure you could do better than that quoted.

Just watched the video and mine makes the same sound. Sept 16 M240. Not overly concerned mind, company car with warranty. If it goes pop they will need to fix it, c'est la vie!

Re: BMW 2018 Price Hike has ruined my spec!!!!

£1500 over a few years is nothing when you have a car that isn't what you want.

Buy the car you want and move on with your life.

Re: Pops and bangs stopped?

Update for everyone, I haven't done any worthwhile journeys but from what I can tell it seems to be fine. The only other thing I think it could potentially be, is if you start the car in Sport mode rather than start in Comfort and switch to Sport. Can you start the car in a Sport? The default setti...

Re: Purchasing a M240i opinions please

I’d say it was overpriced.

I paid £33k for a fully loaded 240 on 1k miles that was 2 months old with full MP kit (bar skirts) inc exhaust.
That was over a year ago.

Edit: that didn’t include the MP wheels which I swapped off another car.

Re: M140i coolant warning?

Haven't read the entire thread but mine had 1l of topup the other day (though it probably lost 3-500ml by taking the cap off to quickly).

17 months old - 35k
