Nope, just on standard suspension at the moment. Can't see there being any problems with say a 25mm drop though.

Hi guys. After spending 3 days with M140i auto RWD, I want to say few words comparing it to my M135i auto xDrive, to those, who are interested. It makes me sad, but made me sure, what I started feel few months ago. M135i xDrive has few thinks I hate. What is good news, they improved what I felt is wrong in M140i. I do have my car 1 year and have done almost 45.000 kms. First thing - probably same issue in M140i - Xdrive - kills happines. Totally. It fights you sometimes in steering wheel, and you dont feel much from it compared to RWD. When accelerating, in RWD you feel that power coming from behind you, like in BMW:) In my xDrive, i dont have that feel of course. M135i in Sport mode is in my eyes useless. It's loud, holds engine in too high revs and shifts to 7th gear max. M140i holds revs lower and uses also 8th gear. Engine sound isn't in M140i "enhanced" so much compared to M135i and it sound for my ears much better, much more like inline six. In manual mode gearbox changes gears more smoothly even in full throttle, there isn't that kick during change. And the engine. It feels like locomotive. I'm not sure, if the difference isn't also done comparing xDrive with RWD. But M140i is much more responsive, you can feel much more torque instantly, you dont need to push the engine to high revs to accelerate hard. In high revs there are both probably comparably strong. Do you have same opinion or is it just placebo and I just need to spend week in some 1.6l car to aprecciate again our loved M135i? :) Cheers, Roman

I'd probably create your own thread on this mate as it'll get lost in here with it being a specific M135 photo thread!

Hello. First posting to this forum.
I find this site very useful, our domestic forums do not have very much topics related to m135i's.
One pic of my babybeemer to start with.

Looks fantastic mate!

I went with a 5 door this time and I really like it, had a 3 door Alpine White previously - yours does look great in 3 door.

I'm definitely happy I went with mineral grey, red leather and sun protection though :D

The black grille and splitter look spot on there - need to get those mods scheduled in asap.

I've got H&R lowering springs, 15mm wheel spacers and the wife's private plate still to go on. 3D rear spoiler(body colour) and a carbon fibre kerscher front splitter will be the only other exterior mods I want to do. Progress has slowed a little as my first child was born last week : )

First time using my camera, I'm no pro!!

Cheers Aaron

I recognise that park, if you're local give me a shout, I hardly ever see any mlites about and certainly not VO ones!
