Re: The M140i photo thread

Hi Your M140i look awesome :D Could you advise if it has stock suspension in these photos though ? The reason I ask is I was looking at either a VMR V703 or V710 in the same sizes you mention (19 x 8.5 and 19x9.5) but am being told they don't fit without coil over suspension change. Sorry, I know m...

Re: The M140i photo thread

That's a super sharp lens! What camera/lens setup are you using matey? Camera would have been Canon 5Dmk3, and I think those photos were taken with a Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 lens. Some lightroom magic was applied to overcome the shortcomings of the lens, mainly removing chromatic aberration and slight ...

Re: Michelin PSS or PS4

I think PS4S is the successor for PSS, PS4 replaced PS3.

Re: F80 M3 to F22 M240i?

Yes it is. The only country in Europa with the ridiculous taxes, and it keeps getting worse. The M2 Competition adds 34k tax to the price.. Not entirely true, I think Denmark is the worst when it comes to taxing cars. Taxes aren’t easy here back in north (Finland) either. I paid around 67k euros fo...

Re: The M140i photo thread

No problem with the difference in size (225-265)? You have a 140i xdrive, right? True, mine’s an xDrive. No problems at all, at least not yet. This is the second summer I’m running these wheels. To my understanding the width difference is not the problem (even the standard tyres were 225-245/18), b...

Re: The M140i photo thread

What size tyres have u got to get 9.5J in at the back? I thought a wheel that wide was a no go on the M-Lites Michelin Pilot Sport 4S 225/35 R19 at the front, 265/30 R19 at the back. Fitment is tight, but I’ve had no rubbing at all. VMR Europe recommended Hankook EVO2s as they have slimmer side wal...

Re: The M140i photo thread

Went to take some photos yesterday. It was such a nice evening and the hue of the sunlight was beautiful. Took some pictures of my car as well, while at it. Gotta love the valencia orange. :) https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1755/42000442374_9174bc405d_o.jpg https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1732/4200044...

Re: The M140i photo thread

Yeah, SO is very reddish compared to VO especially in shadow / low light conditions. However direct sunlight really transforms the colour. I personally really like the multi tone nature of it. I think M135i/M140i is quite rare at least in my area. I have seen maybe two pre-LCI M135i's and of course...

Re: The M140i photo thread

With a little lowering, this orange M140i could be in the TOP10 of the best M140 in Europe! :love: Rims seem to be VMR? Tyres size please? Thank you! :) Being an xDrive and with adaptive suspension (I would like to keep) it seems to be bit of an headache to get the car lowered. I would agree that s...

Re: The M140i photo thread

Summer, M140i and twisty country roads. Could be worse. Done a one third of my annual kilometres during my four week summer holiday. :D

Re: 8.5 and 9.5 19

9.5 will be too much on the rear. No it won't, will fit just fine with correct offset and 255/30 R19 tyres. :) I have 19" VMR V710 wheels in my M140i, 19x8,5 ET43 front and 19x9,5 ET50 back. Wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, 225/35 front and 255/30 back. The fitment should be the same with 2-se...

Re: The M140i photo thread

Had the rear diffuser bit sprayed gloss black. Added some mild tint film to the reflectors to better blend them in. Quite happy with the outcome. :) https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4285/35470690625_86064c99d9_o.jpg https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4280/35470690795_57725b7d73_o.jpg Before: https://c1.stat...

Re: F series LCI2 update

I wonder if you could retrofit the shadow line headlights and rear lights to an LCI model. I've always thought there was too much chrome on standard headlights and think that slight tint on rear light would look good with valencia orange. Other that that, nothing in LCI2 that I find too exiting.
