Buy an M240i instead, they're better.
Why? I can't see that significantly less road noise gets through the coupé's boot and the front will be no different at all.
Download a simple noise meter app, drive both, check for yourself. Can't be bothered to argue with you.

Re: Road noise

A 6" thick layer of sound absorbing foam would probably do it, but would obviously eat into your boot space on the days you fitted it.

Re: Anybody going to enjoy Glastonbury this weekend

Yes, I've been twice also, amazing for all kinds of reasons! The weather Gods were kind to me luckily. I still can't believe they basically build a city in the middle of nowhere for a long weekend, incredible. 200,000 people, all in one place, with the specific shared goal of having an awesome party...

Re: Road noise

Thanks, for the replies - but I am reading between the lines that you guys don't think the car is noisy? On Smooth roads it was totally fine, but on roads round here it was, lets be honest, terrible. A deal breaker for me. Yes, it's noisy on poor roads. I've played with dynamat, with little success...

Have a trawl through my build thread, I think the longer M4 front wishbones are on the 4th or 5th post down: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=60691

Lego have VIP members?
They do indeed. They're trying to get me to buy one of these currently, which isn't going to happen!

ETA for Marco:

You seen this?
Yup, announced to Lego VIP's back in April, via 'Ideas'. Bluewater store has had them in stock for a while, a nice kit if you're into NASA shizzle, although a slightly boring build.

Re: I love this forum!

trackday meets and general opinion on what the best lego set is (for example) not so much Forums are what contributors make of them. If there aren't enough trackday meets, why haven't you organised one? I have, it was a great day and didn't require much work. :thumbs: And don't get me started on Le...

Re: Chicken or Egg/Wax before or after Sealant?

No such thing as a daft question, everyday is a school day for me. :thumbs:

Make sure you don't over apply the sealant, less is definitely more. Trying to put a lot on will end in tears! Two thin coats are way better than one generous one.

Re: Chicken or Egg/Wax before or after Sealant?

Sealant goes on bare paintwork. Sealant is a bit like a very thin lacquer / varnish, needs to be applied to a clean, wax free surface to bond.

Once dried, you can wax over the top if you want. Wax is a much softer material, a bit like a grease.

Re: The F20 Alloy Wheel Thread

A brand new 225/40/18 is basically the same size as a brand new 225/45/17, less than 3mm difference.

As you say, tread wear can make a visible difference, and tyres do have a size tolerance like anything else.

Re: Thinking about an M135i

Marco Polo, I notice from your signature that you have a TMC piggyback, can you give any more details please? Thanks TMC is a nice simple 'fit & forget' box, good for Stage 1 tuning only. It doesn't constantly delete error codes, so no good if you want to decat. I've left mind set on 7 out of 9 (6 ...
