Re: M135i - Family car?

The car is plenty to big enough if you like it enough to justify the odd cramped experience, as others have said a roof box for holidays or weekend away, don't be miserable in an MPV. When our first child arrived I sold my 3 door S3 and bought an A4 Avant diesel, sold it 3 months later, bought anoth...

Re: EB M140i Stolen

Have to agree that although its tempting to put up a fight this is okay with a casual thief looking for an easy hit but if professional they are likely to be prepped for any resistance and say you get the better of him how well will you sleep waiting for him or his pals to come back for revenge on y...

Re: EB M140i Stolen

Terrible news but good that all are ok etc. We have had /6 ATM robberies in my area involving diggers stolen from nearby development sites so I think I'll invest in some additional security however I still leave the keys where easily found as my family are too precious etc and thieves seem pretty de...

Re: Oyster leather 5 door m140i grey

Its the best combo by far and just lifts the ambience inside making the car feel more expensive etc. No less hard wearing than any other colour too you just tend to keep a pack of leather wipes handy. I was nervous when I first ordered this a few cars back but I would never go back to black again es...

Don’t worry too much about these ‘common’ issues, most people have no troubles at all, they just don’t write about it.

Blimey can't believe I've only just read this thread considering the time I spend on here browsing. The OP is a testament to extreme patience and I I applaud him for his tenacity and for keeping professional throughout, I'd have given up long ago. Reading this thread has made me reconsider signing u...

Re: MPE + PCW Mod

pretty sure its just mimicking the MPE so gain would'nt be massive.

The stealthy approach is a Milltek 300 cell sports cat, mates perfectly to oem system and no visible signs etc, this is my next step.

Re: Manual, have you regretted your choise?

My first M135 was a manual which I swapped for an auto for 2 reasons, 1. I thought I was missing out when reading all the posts etc on here about how brilliant they were. 2. Wife's 320d had the ZF auto and was a really relaxing drive, particularly if you have passengers and therefore have to think a...

Re: Black 3 door Shadow Edition, Cognac or Oyster ?

I've only ever seen one with this combo and it does look very classy, I've gone for gloss black trim as have it in current car and love it although you do have to keep a micro fibre cloth handy at all times as shows every finger print.

Re: Heated Seats + Wheel - Bit Naff?

Mine burn my bum on setting 3 and only short journeys for me so maybe get yours looked at.

I only had mine for the Wife as I'm always bloody hot, I drive in a t shirt with climate on 18, wife and kids use heated seats and wear jumpers :)
