Re: Business Lease Question

The lease company don’t pay the VAT on the car upfront when it’s a business transaction. So it’s cheaper for them.

In any case you can’t get business rates without being a business.

Business Lease Question

Business leases don’t have the VAT element in them. You have to be VAT registered to qualify for them. I.e. a business........funny that [emoji16]

Re: Gearbox Function when in D

The return to D that you describe is dependant in certain things. If you are cruising with a steady throttle input it will revert from M to D within a few seconds. If you are off throttle it will hold the gear indefinitely until you either stop or select D. This is like a hold gear hill descent mode...

Planned Mods For the 140 - Thoughts

The wastegate is held open for the first 10 seconds approx at start-up (happens hot or cold). Helps starting, and warms the Cat up allegedly. Yeah.....’cos exhaust gas that goes through a waste gate is hotter. [emoji6] Oh and don’t forget the exhaust flaps that warm the cat up too. Apparently gas r...

Re: M4 LCA - Undriveable

Yeah just read that ..they mention 11mm of toe but I have no idea how to achieve this Did want to check if being so bad is normal Oh yes, you definitely need to wind out the steering rod. The steering wheel in the pic below is dead straight. So you can see how massively toe in the front wheels will...

Can you get 5-6mm hubcentric spacers? Might look ok without spacers then.
I’m not a fan of spacers, so I would go without. [emoji4]

Re: M4 LCAs and Tension Struts

What about wheel spacers? I'm running 12mm on the front at the moment. Will I need to reduce these to something smaller with the LCAs + TSs or remove them completely? The front wheel get pushed out by around 10mm at wheel cap height. Less at the top and more at the bottom. Remove 12mm spacers as a ...

Re: M4 LCAs and Tension Struts

Just wind 11mm more toe out when doing LCA + TS, it will be close enough to get to alignment centre.

I’m told adding TS doesn’t really affect toe too much, so should be same 11mm for LCA only.

Re: How to adjust track rod ends?

I don’t get.... ....more feel that has been reported. You need more positive Caster for that, take the M4 TS off. When the wheels are turned, a little extra positive Caster will add some Camber too. I could do, but I’m OK with the feel as it was, so no biggie, although more feel would have been nic...

Stationary revving issue

Most don’t know it, but revving without load is the worst stress placed on the rod bearings and caps. Easy to understand when you think about it, heavy piston and rod moving fast up the bore, with little pressure on top to counteract the rapid change of direction at top dead centre. That I did not ...

Re: M4 LCAs and Tension Struts

If the pictures are correct then I can confirm they look identical to the genuine M parts. And these are clearly different to the non M versions. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181112/f9f230b218e4f53a6dd5d606b355ece9.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181112/0d328cb07acb800970c8649919aef0d8....
