Re: any one using the VRSF sport cat down pipe?

did you ever get any further with this or have you had any issues? many thanks. I got an absolutely crap response from VRSF. Basically said "our DPs don't require a bracket. We have sold thousands but never had any issues". I asked how many they sold were for the B58 (which has a significantly larg...

Re: 2018 M140 Passive Suspension Upgrade Options (Help)

Springs can mask the problem, but it is dampers you need.

I found the front ones to be OK actually, it’s the rears that are terrible.

Buy a pair of Bilstein B6 rear dampers and fit them. Low cost, maximum effect.

Re: KW street comforts initial impressions

Another happy ‘aftermarket suspension’ customer. They really do make a difference.


The team at BMW responsible for the suspension should be strung up.

Re: F22 Leaking Lights + Wheel Corrosion

Many moons ago when I used to ride bikes, there used to be dealers that would sell motorcycles conspicuously cheaper than others - one in particular in Salford. I subsequently found out, when trying to get some warranty work carried out, that the reason they were much cheaper is that they 'bought' ...

Re: God these are fast

Keep reading up BM3 with decent reviews. Not sure if im convinced 100% by it. But very curious to know how you get on with it. Im just a huge cynic. Love the idea of a platform like it where you can pick and choose what you want. Would be good if various places uploaded their maps for cars like say...

Re: God these are fast

I went back to stock from tuned yesterday ( remote tuning ). Holy sh*t the car feels slow, you adjust very fast to faster car. More will always have more..going backwards is not fun. Ha, I removed my JB+ yesterday. Service due soon and just bought a BM3 license, so no longer needed. But wow does th...

There is a crackdown on exhausts, so you will be finding a lot more ‘jobs worth’ types about.

That’s a bargain price.

Yes, PSS10 are around £1300 (direct from Germany)

Re: Local dealer refused to MOT - BCS Exhaust

Took my car for it's 4-year service a couple of days ago and had the MOT booked at the same time. Dealer called to say the service was done but they weren't willing to do the MOT as I had a non-standard exhaust fitted (BCS Powervalve). I pointed out that they MOT'd it last year with the same exhaus...

Re: Adaptive Suspension...

No, those kits are all passive, they do not firm up in Sport mode. However, they have variable oil control systems, generally larger pistons and much better technology than the BMW stock offerings. Which results in a system that can be pliant and sporty in one setting. Pliant over the small ripples ...

Re: Adaptive Suspension...

So then you would say the best tactic would be to not spec adaptive and use the £520 or so towards getting the B12 kit instead and help avoid the luxury tax? I was under the impression from watching Joe Achilles with his grey M140i that having adaptive was necessary to get the best from an aftermar...

Re: Adaptive Suspension...

So how many people would say the Bilstein B12 kit for passive is better than the BMW adaptive set up? Or is that another can of worms? There is not one post from any one that has upgraded to any kind of aftermarket suspension where they were nothing but blown away. Makes the argument of which stock...

Re: Novice Question - M2 Gearbox vs M135/140i

DCT is a robotised manual gearbox laid out with two shafts and clutch on each, hence ‘double clutch’. The ZF8 is an automatic. A very good automatic, but not as ‘sporty’ as a DCT. That’s why an M car is likely to choose the DCT. Although new M cars will most likely move over to ZF auto. Sent from my...
