Re: My first car, Brand new M140i shadow edition

as someone who has been driving for years and years, I've had the back end slip out on me on a wet road (driving slow due to the bad weather). If that can happen to me, I dread to think what someone with no experience will be like. You don't have to drive the m140 fast for it to become a handful. It...

Re: Stupid Mrs lost her car key

Don't suppose I can do this via bimmercode can I?

also what's to stop the lost key from being used in the physical barrel within the handle?

Re: Fed up

Sorry to hear this. I used that dealer and they were great with me. That said, a few months later when I swapped the alloys I did notice that all four had chips which had been covered up with paint. Since I was replacing them anyway I just went with it but still a bit miffed. They were able to beat ...

Stupid Mrs lost her car key

My stupid mrs (who won't be for much longer I hope) lost her car key weeks ago and kept it quiet. I had my suspicions when my daughter said something a while back. This morning I noticed she used mine when nipping out to the shops. so ignoring the fact that my car has been an open ticket to car thie...

Re: M135i / M140i Rear LED Install Guide (Updated)

Just a further point to OP's excellent guide, with the pre-LCI M135i, I suggest the text be amended to read; either two pairs of 382 clear bulbs and one pair of 581 amber bulbs, or one pair of clear 382 bulbs, one pair of 382 red bulbs and one pair of 581 amber bulbs. Perhaps a touch pedantic.........

Re: Google play on the latest I drive

Google is seriously annoying me right now. I told them last year they had bluetooth issues. Then when I joined the beta program I again told them about it throughout every single iteration. When it went final, guess what.....still didn't work. I'm poster number 4 on that google thread. Very annoying...

Re: Throttle reset not working??

I need to do this as the car is really winding me up. Pulling out of junctions is dangerous. Assume this is because of the Auto box, which everyone raves about but I think it's ****. My first auto, and if this is supposed to be good my next car will be a manual.

Hi,

Just to confirm that the pre-lci m135i requires offset pins for the amber bulb?

Have I got that right

Re: Collecting my M140 from Soper

Hello fellow Lincolner

watch out for me in my mineral grey (number plate looks like bingo :lol: )

Unfortunately Sopers would only offer me a rubbish deal so had to travel over to Tamworth to get mine :roll:

Re: If you're weighing up Bus Nav or Pro Nav....

I wish BMW would just partner up with Google to develop their in-car entertainment system, rather than do it themselves.

I'm sure google would do a better job. Having google maps in the car would be awesome.
