Picked up my M140i Shadow Edition from Tony (TRL) on Saturday!
Firstly, a massive thanks to Tony, top bloke and everything from start to finish was spot on, an absolute pleasure to deal with and highly recommended!

Done 330miles so far, washed 4 times (AW a nightmare in this weather living out in the sticks!)
Fitted MP Armrest, gear gator and handbrake, awaiting delivery of the MP steering wheel. 😁
Next on the list, Carbon Hydrodip front ‘fins’, Carbon mirror caps M3/4 style, Carbon spoiler and front splitter and maybe later in the year, MOTECH lowering springs and spacers and BCS mid section but for now going to enjoy driving it (and cleaning it some more!)

Bit dirty!

pretty sure these are the ones.
Armrest 51162405916
Handbrake 34402222539
Gear shift 25112222533

These are for the LCI2 m140, think the interior bits are the same as the LCI though

Yeah, SO is very reddish compared to VO especially in shadow / low light conditions. However direct sunlight really transforms the colour. I personally really like the multi tone nature of it. I think M135i/M140i is quite rare at least in my area. I have seen maybe two pre-LCI M135i's and of course the M140i of today.
Would be nice to compare Sunset with my Valencia Orange, especially on a sunny day. I once parked next to a 4-series one I thought was Sunset Orange. Sadly it was a dull day so both colours seemed quite boring, sunset was definitely red with brownish tint to it when compared to VO.

I’ve seen three M140i’s ”in the wild” in Finland, in addition to mine — white, red and a blue one.

Was bored today so went out hunting for snow to test my recently acquired winter wheels. If you were wondering what style 397s look like with Sunset Orange, well here it is

Even having experienced winter tyres before, I couldn't believe how good these Conti WinterContacts are.

Thanks SootyVRS for the wheels!
