Re: M3 Comp Pack

I had the itch for an M3 a couple months back so went to my dealer and headed out in one, very competent car and in a total class above an M1/240i in terms of steering feel and chassis however compared to my bluespark decat m240i, the M3 felt absolutely dead in terms of power, no sense of urgency a...

Re: Bluespark Tuning Box

I’ve had mine fitted a couple of weeks now and I’ve moved up the maps to map E now & I don’t feel any difference. I’m going to unplug it and take it for a spin, the difference should be night & day I’ve just fitted mine today and left it on setting C. It’s smoother to drive and pulls like a train. ...

Re: M140i rear wheel noise

Cheers for the replies guys. I’ll just have to take it to the dealer to have them check it. It’s not knowing for sure if something has happened to it that bugs me, as I can’t pass on that info to the mechanic who will be trying to diagnose the issue.

M140i rear wheel noise

Underneath car

I was checking under the m140 for something and noticed a few components rusting already. Is this normal for a 6 month old car? It looks like nuts and bolts mainly but one part which looks like an arm connected to the suspension has rust on it too. Anyone else notice this on their new car?

Change in fuel that’s been put in ?
I wondered that too as I had filled her with shell v power just before I put the car in to get wheels fixed. Normally I run around in regular unleaded. I have since filled up with regular again and 150 Miles in and still no change.

Re: Pops disappeared....

Yeah there is paranoia there but could there be any reason why the pops are really quiet now? I deliberately used to blip the throttle going into my street as I got a nice echo but I can’t get the car to do it now.... Did it have any sort of software update when it was in with the dealer, are you i...

Pops disappeared....

Right guys,

This is a weird one. Had my car in getting all 4 wheels refurbed after a tyre fitter damaged them. When I collected the car, I noticed there was a mile on the clock.
Since then the pops and crackles are very quiet. Is there any reason why this would happen all of a sudden?

Why was MPE not an option?

I would have thought it would have made more sense to have the MPE as an option when buying the car. Is the MPE an afterthought??? My dealer hasn't even mentioned the MPE to me so if it wasn't for word of mouth I wouldn't have even known about it. Is the exhaust actually from another car and people ...
