Race Seat M140i ?

Here you go: https://i.imgur.com/sh0qONT.jpg Cheaper option is Recaro Pole Position but they dont fold so rear access is difficult - the CS come in folding and non folding so make sure you get the right one!

Re: 2017 M140 shadow with faulty fuel injectors replacement cylinder head and exhaust camshaft

Wow that’s quite a horror story. How long do they think it will take to repair?

Good job for warranties

Re: New member - couple of questions

That looks like a pre PPF car.

From the information I have seen, the PPF replaces the first silencer, with a pressed shape. The one in the above pic looks like the standard ‘wrapped construction’ silencer box.

Took just nine laps on a ~67 second track to do that.
They still work fine but paint is burnt.
And probably the seals too. Better check them out.

Any meth users here?

Power gains will be minimal unless you map it for water/methanol.

Even then, it doesn’t add much to a stock turbo engine.

Re: M135i + M235i MPE WILL fit M140i + M240i

Wow this thread was off the mark. The F2x x35i MPE is not a straight fit on x40i

1series has shorter outlet pipes than 2 series. So yes not too difficult to make fit.

If you really must, there are filter box replacements that have their own plain pipe. AFE, Dinan, pipercross, etc

Re: M140i Intake Pipe (without helmholtz resonator) - WHERE TO BUY ONE??

Removing the helmholtz resonator won't make the engine noisier everywhere, only at very specific frequencies (rpm's). If the natural soundwaves collide at (say for example) 4,000rpm creating a really annoying drone, sound engineers can deaden it by bouncing the soundwaves around inside the chamber ...

Re: BMW FS Overpayments

Yes I’ve done it.

Just phone them up, they are super friendly and easy to deal with. Let them know what your intentions are and they give you the options.

Re: How to adjust track rod ends?

Agreed, I’m running zero toe rear and bottom of standard limit on front. Feels pretty good, although probably a little looser in the rear on traction than normal. Hard to tell in winter conditions though.
