Re: M2 Test Drive

I think you need an extended test drive to get to know the chassis to feel the benefits of the M2 over the M140... The weather conditions will also not be great at this time of the year to exploit the M2 chassis too IMO I test drove a brand new unregistered M2 before purchasing my M140 and was told ...

Re: Stuck on Navigation starting?

I had a read of your thread.. Not sure if exactly the same as I don't have bluetooth problems.. Done some more reading on other BMW forums and others have said it rectified itself (albeit F30) after a while so will see what happens before I book mine in.. Don't use Nav much so not too concerned at t...

Re: Stuck on Navigation starting?

I've got Automatic map updates until 2020 so could it be it's in the middle of some sort of update?

Stuck on Navigation starting?

Not used the car in 2 weeks but noticed my Pro Nav map works for a few seconds and then the Navigation starting screen comes on but just gets stuck there (after a 20 min drive there and another 20 mins back) Anyone else seen this? All other idrive functions seem to work fine Sent from my LG-H870DS u...

Re: The M140i photo thread

Re: Suspension upgrades, options and opinions?

I'm not using OEM dampers but on Koni Sport rebound adjustable dampers with H&R -15mm springs (-25mm measured) When we spoke a while back the qualities wanted from the suspension were quite clear; sharpen the car, but retain road usability. Has this combo delivered as hoped? I would say it's met my...
