Re: Massive mistake - advice needed

What tyres are on it? Would a change of rubber clear up most of your issues?

Re: Funniest comments on your Mx35i/M140i?

"couldn't you afford a 3 series?" - I had the more than once.

Mind you, idiots are everywhere. Since getting the C63 I've had "yeah, nice, mines an amg too (amg line a class)", "why did you buy a family car, you don't have kids" and "that sounds nice, is it a diesel" .

Re: Anyone tried a new focus rs?

My neighbour had one on order. When the dealership finally got a demonstrator in they invited him down for a test drive. He drove it and cancelled his order there and then. Ended up with an E91 335i instead....

High power modified cars say otherwise.
Along with most race series. And Ferrari.

Re: 5 Year Service Pack

Hi Everyone Another new member with my 1st question. I've had my 140 for nearly 2 months - didn't buy the SP, so have a few days left to get it. I'm just wondering if the service pack worth it for me? My car is a 2nd car for weekend use only, so mileage will be about 6k per year max. I intend to ke...

Re: Value my car

Sold mine for £15.5k private - it was a 5 door, auto, adaptive suspension, HK audio, pro nav. No sun roof, Jan 2013 car, 64,000 miles. That was on autotrader - sale agreed within 3 days of listing it. Picked it up 3 days later. Pretty hassle free and much better money than WBAC or dealer prices. I ...

Re: Single exhaust

I considered this, I even got as far as buying a rear valance with a single exit.

You can't easily fit an exhaust from a lesser car due to differing pipe diameters - I think Marco has already highlighted the easiest option; modify an M135i backbox so the no exposed pipe just points at the ground.

Re: 2016 C63 AMG

Very nice Rich, pics don't do it justice. Not sure about the screen on the dash though :( Seems like they designed a beautiful leather dash but forgot that they needed to add a screen so just bolted an iPad to it. I may be biased though as I have always been a fan of built in dash screens :D 100% a...

Re: M Performance Carbon Interior trim

Tom, sounds like the right two packages to me, but get in touch with Phil at Cotswolds BMW (forum sponsor) I'm sure he'll be happy to confirm.

PS it really lifts the interior of the car, well worth the buying. And of course it's real carbon fibre.

Cheers, and nope. I'd already decided I was going to lease my next car, so it was always going to be something new. Just happened that an in stock C63 happened to appear just outside my price range. So I extended my price range :).
