Re: Potentially selling

I don't think higher end cars are as easy to shift 2nd hand as cheaper cars. If people are looking to buy used, they generally need to go cash/hp/loan. This brings the cost (monthlies) higher than if someone were to get a brand new car on pcp - so that's what many people do. Get the new car at lowe...

Totally agree mate. Lotus is something else.

Re: BMW 1M verses M140

The M140i is definitely quick but the lack of an LSD dead steering feel and arcade engine note in 2 years of owning one never made me want to take the long route home. It wallowed in the corners buy comparison to the M cars but was excellent at being a capable daily, relatively practical and great a...

Re: BMW 1M verses M140

Nice write up. Well up untill last month I had the pleasure of owning an M140i and a 1M along side each other (unfortunately the m140i was stolen!). Also had the pleasure of an M2 for 2 years and all 3 cars do have their differences but the M140i is with out doubt a quick car. If its speed your afte...

Re: M2 remap + intercooler recommendations

I had great gains from Wagners Evo Comp and HJS downpipe. Very good quality. Honestly not fully convinced by the evolve stuff and have asked for help before and have had no response so went elsewhere, one with my M2 and again with my 1M. Plenty of others out there.

Re: Distance purchase

I live in London and bought my car from synter Sheffield in November. I put a refundable deposit down, they drove down to my place of work, I had the car fully inspected by my garage I use and went over all the paperwork. I was satisfied that everything was as agreed and made the payment. I also had...

Yeah came across these. Bit a bad compromise, b8s if I recall. Went for a set of ohlins in the end, never used them before so hope they live up to the name.

Re: 1m coupe exhaust options.

Best setup imho is a wagner downpipes and a lightweight titanauspuffanlagen setup.. mega loud and superlight. Sadly too loud for tracks and gets abit drony after long drives. Akra is a nice balance with the valve. Again to get best results a remap is needed. Thanks, that's great as I just bought th...

Re: M140i vs M2 vs M2C vs E92 M3

Sawda - thanks for the great write up. Very interesting and much appreciated. Consistent message seems to be MX35/MX40i are great cars but, even when modded, they’re not as special as an M car in terms of driving experience. Is the manual box good on the M2? Most people on the E92 and M2 seem to go...

Re: M2 bolt on mods only

Posts bhp seems a bit far fetched to me for just a intercooler and down pipe, all the other mods will do little or nothing to increase power.

Re: M140i vs M2 vs M2C vs E92 M3

For what it's worth I'll happily share my experiences with the cars above. I have driven all apart from the M2 competition and have owned an M2 and still own my m140i, much will probably echo what you have heard, so here it goes...

1m coupe exhaust options.

Ok so been researching this to death and would love to hear some experienced opinions on set ups. Seems like less systems are available than they were. Personally I love the look of the 1m and quite happy with the stock tips so changing the rear back box may not be the best option for me. Dont want ...
