I’m loving the colour and thanks to those who have mentioned that, so glad I changed my selection from LBB at the last minute [emoji41]

Re: 130i - inexpensive pads for road and track?

Carbotech Xp8’s job done ! Typ200 fluid or rbf 600 Such a good pad 0 fade and relentless on track , they also work great on the rd but can be a bit noisy. According to their website: "Carbotech™ does NOT recommended XP8™ as a daily driven street pad due to elevated levels of dust and noise." Probab...

Re: 130i - inexpensive pads for road and track?

EBC were great on my 130i and are not too expensive either :) Better than oem cold, but once hot they hauled the car down amazingly well, when the oem pads would have given up ages ago. I drove the Nordschleife and the GP track. I know they don’t suit all applications, but they work well on the 130i...

Re: Is my friend full of BS?

You’re right to be sceptical, as a 2014 Cooper has 136bhp and a published top speed of 130mph. Most medium hatches need 130bhp+ to hit numbers above 120’s. The Cooper needs about 40% more power to achieve a lower speed on the flat. Down a steep hill, following another car? Still doubtful really, as ...

Re: What would you do?

Sorry to see this, but well done for following him and stopping. I guess you’re fairly safe in a built up area. At night in the country would be a different story. It does make me sick that people do this :( He tried to make his getaway from you, then changes his tune and blames you, then is despera...

Re: BMW Shame on you!

Timing your car buying is never easy! Brand new model? Teething problems and zero discounts available. Mid life? Face lift / new engine on the horizon? End of production? Over familiar and new model make yours feel old too soon! The Z3M was very dated but the Z4 when it was first released. Now do so...

I get that. But what's the tangible difference. 0.1s faster 0-60? Suspension is basically unchanged....

Spring rates are the same,that’s all.

There are loads of differences, so the new S55 version will be quite different to drive.

The 0-60mph time is 0.0000001 of the importance :roll:

Re: Car vandalised in the public car park

Yeah this is great news - for once I hope the BMW invoice to set it all right is as inflated as ever and the scumbag has to dig real deep in his pockets to cover. He needs a long hard word with himself after this... a couple of slaps around the head wouldn’t go amiss - he could do with some common ...

Re: JapanRed's new Steed (+new stable mate)

Ah I see, so more space required :) Well you guessed it! 2 votes for a Macan here :) No matter which model, they all drive amazingly well, for the class of vehicle. You do drive them in a more relaxed luxury car manner I find. They simply don’t put a foot wrong though. You have to make no allowance ...

Re: Car vandalised in the public car park

Got an update The guy admitted it and is willing to pay for the damages. So if I was to accept the payment and full amount is repaid, he gets away with no record of wrongdoing and I no longer have rights to press charges against him, is that correct? Result! Wait for the money to land in your accou...

Re: Low down power

Hi everyone, My 125i (2008 coupe) feels dead low in the rev range (anything below about 4000). Is this normal? It's a bit annoying having to change down to 2nd to get any power. Thanks! How long have you had it please? If not long, what was your last car? What’s the mileage? Are there any hesitatio...
