Re: F20, F21, same interior parts?

What's included in the interior pack? Obviously the doors would be different sizes. The door trims are identical for 3 and 5 door variants Ah fair enough, I just assumed they'd be bigger as a 3 door car usually has longer doors than a 5 door one. The door cards would be different but the trim is th...

Re: UAC car not as described - what would you do?

See if they will meet you in the middle with X amount discount off the car to cover the 2mm tread, that's the least they can do for the trouble. But if it's really got your back up walk away! I'm assuming you've buying from a dealer for peace of mind? If this is their attitude before they take your ...

Re: Can't decide LCI or pre-LCI

Haven't seen them for less than 400, but usually 450/550 depending on spec. The air bag alone is £285....

Re: Naughty number plates

It's illegal spacing no matter what way you look at it, depends on the copper and area if they will act on it or not. Not worth the risk of a fine i my opinion + I'm really not a fan of number plates reading what the car is. Maybe you could put some more M badges on it to match My car is de-badged....

Re: MPE fitment

I had the same worry on my M135 as I was fitting it myself Spend some time getting it to sit correctly is all it needs. Nip the clamp up just a little, adjust the back box to suit, then tighten. You don't need to cut the tailpipes at all or cut any extra off the centre pipe. It's all down to the dea...

Re: Non BMW wheels and BMW warranty.

Depends as always

Had a warranty claim refused 10 years back on a focus for a gearbox fault, excuse was as standard they had 17" wheels and I had fitted aftermarket 18s. I just refitted the originals and took it to another dealership :lol:

Re: 2017 M140i - iPhone audio connectivity issues (BT audio/USB audio)

Had a similar issue twice on my 135. Closing all the apps on the phone and switching it off and back on fixed it for me.

Have read this a lot with others paying a lot more. Done mine end of last month for £296 down from £370 the year before, I must be one of the lucky ones I guess!
