Re: My Aug build 140 is louder in comfort

Can you guys with PPF cars post a pic of the front section of the exhaust? Would be good to see what the PPF looks like.

Re: M135i/140i concerns

I’ve come out of 2 Golf R’s, a MK 6 then 7. They’re amazing cars! Planted, loads of grip, confidence inspiring, tuneable, fantastic overall and especially on the street, drive the same in wet or dry and it will put a grin on your face. My PB at my local track with the 7 was 1:10:8 with semi slicks,...

Also, I don't think sport mode makes any difference at all to noise now listening to it closely!
That would make sense, for the reasons I gave earlier.

Re: Thinking of buying an M140i Shadow Edition and need some PCP advice

I agree but any equity in the car isn’t a real term amount that’s all I’m saying. So £2k equity isn’t really £2k. And GMFV is manipulated all the time by the finance dept. - on my 140 they fluctuated it by £3k as they tired to make the numbers work for them even though it was on the same monthlies ...

Re: Limited Slip Differential working with traction control?

Just adding my 2 cents to this thread, my Quaife acts immediately and seems to match MP’s description of how a LSD works in these cars. I see much less intrusion from TC, yes I can still get the light flashing, but often it is stability control kicking in due to yaw angle, not wheel spin as such. Fl...

Re: Pollen Filter

It doesn’t need to be changed, however roads are the most polluted air corridors going, so for health reasons I would prefer to change mine regularly. They are activated carbon filters.

Re: My Aug build 140 is louder in comfort

I do know there is some pathetic new EU legislation about not having a mode that makes a car louder. The car is generally homologated in the standard operating mode - comfort in the case of these. I wonder if they simply removed the over fuelling strategy in Sport to ensure it complies explicitly? S...

Re: My Aug build 140 is louder in comfort

Is it at full operating temp when you carry out this test? If not it could be the extra fuel enrichment aka choke, adding fuel that brings on the pops.

Re: Thinking of buying an M140i Shadow Edition and need some PCP advice

I've just bought a 420i on PCP. Am I right in thinking that a lower MGFV is better as there is more chance of having some equity? A high GFV means less money paid each month, but potentially no equity or a high final balloon payment if you want to keep it. A low GFV means potentially higher monthli...

Re: can someone explain PCP and GFV etc to me please ....

Trading-in between terms is hardly a good point of reference, since you don't know what the deal would have been had you had more equity in the car from an upfront deposit. You don't get nowt for nowt, though I concede that if the seller's not too savvy over what equity he has in the car then there...

Re: Where to be in the rev range

The B58 in the M140i doesn't appreciate being revved out all the way like the previous N55 engine did (from the M135i) did/does. In my M135i I get the same sensation if I'm NOT in Sport+. Comfort and to a lesser degree, Sport does seem to run out of puff North of about 5k so make sure you're in Spo...

Re: Where to be in the rev range

Maximum acceleration is achieved by changing around 6700-6900 depending on gear. 7000 in first.

Re: M140i xDrive or RWD

If I lived on southern europe I’d take rwd. But on northern europe there is often wet, snowy, icy oconditions, I’d take xdrive. Actually rear biased xdrive in powerful car doesn’t kill the joy of driving - it acts more like rwd than fwd but you always get power down to road which makes it very enjo...
