Re: Super stone chip

get a touchup pen with primer and lacquer.

Clean and dry the area, dot some primer in....dry, paint, dry, lacquer, dry. Wash, 3000 wet sand, compound, polish, wax

Leave the sandpaper in warm soapy water for 30mins before using

Re: Was looking at putting my m140 up for sale but prices are shocking

just wondering , if this new 130i xdrive or whatever its going to be called is a bag of crap , would there be potential for the value of the current 140 to go up with it been the 6 cylinder rwd etc? or is that not likely? wishful thinking....but not a chance in hell. If anything they will lose even...

Re: Was looking at putting my m140 up for sale but prices are shocking

I think we'll have just have to agree that cars loose a shed load of money. We buy them for enjoyment.

No matter if it's PCP at 3.2%, bank loan at 3.1%, win on the horses, bank of mum and dad....they are all a money pit.

Re: Scratches on bodywork

Part of life I'm afraid. The autobrite Clay is bloody fantastic though. You only need to use water with it, and my god does it do a good job of pulling off other cars paint. I had a blue mark from a supermarket incident, and the clay pulled it clean off. If you get dents, just let them build up to 3...

Re: Warm weather - finally the m140i 'works'

This is why I only buy 4WD cars now. My S4 simply doesn’t wheelspin. The advances in 4WD mean they’re actually fun to drive now too. If having rear wheel drive makes it a “driver’s car” then I’m really not interested. It’s sad to have to wait until it’s very sunny to enjoy your car. I’ve been there...

Biggest issue with the M140 is the british weather

Think you need to use the rotate button ;-)

Never been a fan of the Cognac interior until now. Damn, it goes well on black!

Re: Was looking at putting my m140 up for sale but prices are shocking

Mine is a 5 door, Mineral grey, Auto, Pro Nav, HK Audio, Heated seats (coral), folding mirrors if anyone wants to tempt me :wink: That's pretty much the spec I had and was paying £333 a month on a 4yr PCP deal. No deposit though, in fact they gave me £1,000 to settle my old car loan. I part-ex last...

Re: Was looking at putting my m140 up for sale but prices are shocking

That's basically a loss of £8k in a year on a discounted car. I prepare myself for 4k but not 8k!!!! I suspect a brand new M140i loses about £4k the minute you drive it off the forecourt. £4k depreciation over the first year of a £30k car is an exceptionally optimistic expectation. I always set hig...
