Motech #009

Post by RO55LAV » Mon Jun 18, 2018 8:59 pm

Well after months of deliberating over what car to get next I finally decided on the M140i and thanks to everyone on the forum as gave me a great insight into ownership before pulling the trigger.

After a trip to the worse than useless local dealer who was only interested in selling a pre reg car I contacted TRL who I can honestly say provided the best car buying experience ever not to mention offering haggle free great deals.

I always end up modding my cars so made sense to consider the Motech and after getting a look (and listen) to #003 in the flesh my mind was made up.

The first week of ownership has been great (apart from getting done for speeding before I’d even got home😩). It’s all the car I’d hoped for.

Anyway, here’s the pics......

Looks the nuts 8)
Really want to go down the Motech route with my one but just worried about voiding the warranty.

Out of interest did you find out if it'll effect your warranty after the Motech bits are installed?

Thanks for the positive comments!

In terms of warranty, there’s lots of talk on here about it already but my personal view is that if any BMW parts break I’ll contact BMW and if any of the parts fitted by Motech break I’ll contact Motech.

As I mentioned most of my cars have been modded and always been during the warranty period and never had any problems on the few occasions I’ve mate warranty claims including a clutch on a BMW as they were happy to admit it was due to uneven wear.

At the end of the day the dealers are paid by the manufacturer for warranty claims so it’s in the dealers best interest to fix them.

I’m more than happy with the work Motech have done and haven’t heard a bad word about them so if your already thinking about it I’d say just go for it. You’ll not regret it!

You've got the wrong exhaust though mate.. Or you've got to change your license plate to remus! ;)

Just kidding, it looks awesome, very nice the grey with the black!

Jeez thats a good looking car. Always thought if I could afford it I'd have a VO one but seeing yours it would have to be that colour. Great choice :jawdrop:

Car looks great, pretty much what I'm considering changing my Estoril blue, 3 door m135i for soon :thumbsup:

I take it you did have an MPE before and now have the Remus exhaust? Comparison?

Also did you declare the Motech bits and exhaust on your insurance? Much of a jump?

Ordered the car as it is so picked it up from TRL new with the Remus. Never had an MPE, just a total coincidence that I was allocated that plate.

More than happy with the Remus though, would definitely recommend it.

Declared all mods to insurance that’s with Chris Knott that advertise on here (would recommend them too) and I’m paying about the same as I did on my previous 335D which was lowered with different wheels with admiral.

Ha, that's funny about the plate, could possibly make some money off of that!

Thanks for the info on the mods :thumbsup:

Out of curioisity, as I am considering aquiring one through TRL myself. Was it easy to do with Chris Knott. Where they aware of the Motech edition or was it a case of just declaring each individual mod to them?
Coming Soon: M140 MG, 5DR, 8ZF With some extras :lol:
