Fingers crossed then :wink:

Would you mind just letting us know if they do fit ok please?

Many thanks
Hi Phil,
Just to let you know that I fitted my 435i tips to my M140i. The 140 tips have remained the same as the 135.

No probs.

Any news on the 140i MPE prices yet? Looking at RealOEM the 140i MPE back box itself seems to have the same part number as the 340i MPE back box but then there seem to be additional bits for the 340i.

I'm still waiting for BMW to confirm part numbers unfortunately

I am hearing all sorts of different rumours that it is the same as the 230i and the 340i but these are different so I don't honestly know until BMW can confirm sorry

Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but I'm struggling to get confirmation - do these fit over the standard tips, or do the stick tips have to be removed to get these on? Thanks

No, you can't just fit them over the OEM tips in-situ.

You will have to remove the OEM tips first; simply use a rubber mallet on the back end of the tip (you'll have to get under the car, but it's easy to see where to hit. If that fails, try a normal hammer, but place a small piece of wood on the back end of the tip to save bending it. If that doesn't initially work, spray some WD40 into the back end and try loosening the tip by wiggling it about a short while later. They WILL come off quite easily by sliding.

The new tips then simply slide onto the exhaust, in exactly the same way as the OEM ones did.

HTH?

Hi folks,

I'm patiently waiting to sell my 325 before getting an M135i.

Well, not patiently at all :) I'm having a good read of the forum and making a shopping list already:)

Apart from looking bigger/nicer, is the exhaust note changed at al or are they just cosmetic?

Cheers

Richie

Just cosmetic, but they'll make a big difference to how the rear end looks

Are they bigger than the standard M140i tips and I assume the standard tips are black paint rather than black chrome ?

Some photos of the old and new tips would be useful :?:

Tipes are exactly the same size, shape etc, the only difference is the colour.

Stock black tips are anodised (poorly!)

Google search found these pictures, all from this site..

I can't decide which colour looks best. Mine could do with either being replaced or powder coated. Unsure if i prefer the black anodised look or chrome stainless steel :?
