Re: Alternative M2 sports seats

Recaro Sportster CS (BMW Performance seats are the same seats) would be my choice if I was to go third party

Re: Order cancelled by factory - absolutely gutted!!!!

Sorry to hear about your cancelled order.. Have you looked on the approved BMW website for any delivery mileage manual M240's? You may find a great bargain there.. There also maybe some unregistered stock manual cars available... OK maybe not to your perfect spec but still options are only the icing...

Re: Re:

Thanks for that mate. What were the spec of the OZ rims you were running, I think the Advans will be too pricey for me. Where did you source both sets from? I ended up importing the Advans from a company in Singapore (details which I got from a babybmw memeber who lived locally) as they were far ch...

Re: Student temporary car insurance whilst at Univerity?

PS the car was a new car purchase (early 18th birthday gift) so probably in negative equity in relation to selling it Blimey times have changed. My first car was a battered Austin Metro that I bought for a hundred quid :D Ha ha yes I agree.. I started with a 10 year old car where I remember I could...

Re: Student temporary car insurance whilst at Univerity?

No plans to do any fronting as I was going to insure just me as the only driver and perhaps get some separate temporary cover for when he drives the car on his return.. I assume this will work out considerably cheaper than paying for a full year to do probably less than 1000 miles.. PS the car was a...

Re: Best Exhaust upgrade for M240i

It seems that the full Ackropovic system (incl downipe , is that worth getting??) is about £3200 plus VAT and possibly fitting on top. I have the manual and BMW say they are not doing an MPE for the manual. Someone else mentioned Remus I am confused. I don't want drone or lots of noise in comfort b...

Re: M3/M4 wheels

As mentioned above.. The 437M are the same wheels for M2/M3/M4 and the only difference is the wider tyres on the bigger model.

I have purchased a set ready for winter use
