Re: Running coast advice please

Expect to pay about 20% more on fuel. That’s coming from zf to dct and my experience. Might be because it’s more fun in the M2 and find myself in Sport + as a default...

Re: Recalculate GFV

I’m also one of the low gfv ones! 50.5k spec, 66 plate, 4 year 8k p.a £20,250 final payment. Works well if I keep the car but I sort of lose the protection of a gfv... I also put in a large deposit, wonder if that has a thing to do with it? Good news is I should maintain positive throughout the cont...

Re: Spotify on the M2...

Mine has stopped working, suspiciously around the same time as I have upgraded to ios11.
I’m using Apple car play, the songs are playing but can’t hear them- any ideas??

Returning car at end of PCP

Hi, just done my last payment on an 63 plate M135 I've owned from new. Car has a couple of dents and the wheels need a refurb, does anyone have any experience in how picky BMW are and how much they charge? I can get all the bits done but wondering if it is worth spending £400-£500 getting it right o...

Re: Running M135 to high mileage

I run my M135i as my "work" car as I get a mileage rate for a 3l petrol engine and it's pretty economical. Got 75k on the clock and it's like new, yeah it will be worth nothing when I sell it but buying a different car will cost cash however you look at it. Plus coming home the other night got off t...

Re: M2 from M135i

Hi all So picked up the car on Saturday, and I thought I would share some thoughts trying not to state the obvious or repeat information that is already out - - I disagree with comments that the engine is boring. The noise is a big step up, and judged really well in terms of volume. I did want an m...

Re: M3/M4 to M2, lead times & prices

Hi - I went from an M135 to M2 and have test drove the M4 here are my thoughts: Any M car will feel like a big step up in terms of handling, speed, and sound M2 interior will not feel much different to M135 but the M3/4 is a lot nice place (especially with full leather). I specced an extra carbon bi...

Re: Incoming...

Nice one, I've gone from an m135 to a black M2 and love it. I'm in Cheshire, guessing you are close if picking it up from Warrington? Ahh nice! Only thing I'm not looking forward to is the potential for swirling with black! How do you feel it compares with the 135? Big step up? Yep I'm in the Chesh...
