Re: M140i & M4 Comparison vid

I'd like to watch the next episode, where you've spent the same amount upgrading both cars to keep it fair. £500 on the M-Lite chassis, and a similar amount on a M4 remap maybe? That would be interesting, I’d love to drive a mapped M4! The reality is that the YouTube stuff follows what we do in rea...

Re: M140i & M4 Comparison vid

Good video, the only thing I’ll say is that you didn’t drive ( or mention at least ) driving the M140 in sport / sport plus. But did from the start in the M4. Like your channel though, good luck Cheers Jessi and good spot! Most of the 140 driving was in Sport, I just failed to mention it, makes it ...

M140i & M4 Comparison vid

Hopefully of interest to some of you, our latest vid shares my thoughts on the M4 compared to the M140i:

Constructive feedback welcomed as we enjoy making the vids, documenting our enjoyment of the cars and hope to grow the channel.

Re: Insurance Tips

A neat little trick if your broker provides it is excess insurance.

In my case on the M140 I cranked up the excess, took out excess insurance at £55 and saved ~£350.

Re: M135i or 430/35d xDrive?

Yeah mate, just more of what the power output is like? Any problems during your ownership you found over the duration with cars? The MPG figures you got back from each car cruising and booting? That type of stuff mate. And I will be test driving both, when I do eventually get the money together. I’...

Re: M135i or 430/35d xDrive?

I had a 435d xdrive a couple of years back and have an M140i now, anything specific you’d like to know? I would test drive both and see what you think. For me it comes down to perhaps the looks and prestige of the 4, or the powertrain of the 1. In terms of pace the 1 is a bit quicker, dynamically re...

Re: M240i Wider Wheels

One reservation I’d have with a 235/265 setup is that you might well be further hurting the balance of the car over what already feels front-limited.

I would be shooting for 245+ fronts with 265 rears, in the hope of improving or at least not further damaging the balance.

Re: M135i v M140i which to choose?

I’d suggest going and driving them both and making your own mind up, as I suspect the advice on here will largely be biased by the car each person owns or has owned.
