JULY PRODUCTION CHANGES M140.. No more manual gearboxes

Post by TRL » Wed May 16, 2018 10:36 pm

Just going through the changes from July. Looks like the WLTM emissions have taken effect.....

All changes take effect from week 27, July 2018.
- Option 2TB Sport Automatic transmission now standard on 120i and M140i models. Manual transmission is no longer available.

I’m very sad about this!! The manual box is truly excellent.

Does this only relate to the M140 and not the M240?

Also on the 330i, 340i, 440i and more.

G01 (M40i) Integration of 2T4 M Sport differential.

Interesting one. Hopefully this works it's way onto the Mx40i.

How does this affect PCP deals - particularly if you have an M140i on order?

So this is officially the death of the last manual RWD 6 pot hatchback. Sad times.
