For £14 a month that is an absolute no brainer!

So it's the standard pants alloys or the new style black one or the new style in black or ferric?

Sorry for the dumb question.
F20 M135i - most toys
F80 M3 - even more toys - gone!
F87 M2 - most toys

Its the standard wheel we know from the M135/M140 in a darkened grey called orbit grey OR a no cost option to have the new style in a gloss black finish.

Hope this explains it clearly :)
Ordered: M140i Shadow Edition 5 Door - AW/Cognac, Sports Auto, Pro Media, Sunroof, Reversing Cam, Front PDC, Heated Seats, Folding Mirrors

I really don't get why BMW bestow such crap alloys for their flagship 1-series.

(and colour choice for that matter)

Great vid from Joe as always. For me the upgrade to the surround on the centre console is by far the best update as I hate the cheap plastic in the previous model it cheapens the interior dramatically. I assume the added features on the 3 series shadow edition are similar? I may need to switch to a 4 door so may be an option for me as I can't stretch to am M3 at the moment
Now - 2017 Audi S4 Black Edition

Then - M235i, M135i, 120d M Sport Coupe, Subaru Impreza, Toyota Celica T Sport 190, VW Golf GTi Mk4, Saxo VTR

yes Gary. Pretty much. I have to say the thought of a 340i Shadow Edition in Sunset orange gets my juices going. totally under rated.
I never had a good time with my M3 F80.... let down TBH. the M2 is actually nicer to drive!

On the 3 series shadow edition you can go one step further and spec the leather dash which steps it up another level. Although for some reason this can't be specced with the dark carbon trim.
Current: M235i Black Sapphire/Oyster, MP aero kit, MPE

I do like those wheels and suits the SO so well, shame they have left the mirror covers and air scoop surrounds in grey.

Really needs the Schnitzy rear wing to finish that rear roof line off.

Not sure about the two dodgy geezers though... I would definitely be steering clear of them.. :wink:
Just another 1series. :)

Cheers for that Tony it's tempting as a sensible option to appease the parents and the in-laws but not sure if I'm overreacting to them struggling getting out of the 2er. Need to drive it and compare to the M3 otherwise I may regret the decision.

The M2 would be my ideal choice but harder to justify with SWMO have you sold the 2 pre reg cars you had yet?
