Re: Grey M135i - Oxford - Best reg ever!

What's good about it? What's the relevance of Le Mans to an M135i.

Best reg I've seen was Duncan's on his M135i which was M135 BMW. He was selling it for £2k.

Re: Time to sell up :(

Loved my AXGT. And it had LAD suspension. Wish I still had it. That’s why the OP will regret selling his stunning M1135i. Paul They're very few and far between now unfortunately. I'd love to still have mine garaged and cherished just to take out for classic car events or something I've had loads, w...

Re: Upgrading Steering Wheel

First wheel has no paddles, second is just the trim.

Not seen them for less than 300 with the airbag unless sold without.

Re: Time to sell up :(

You've got a 5 door? Why are you selling? That's the exact car I bought for my wife when our baby came along, we've now got 2 kids and it's been going strong for 18 months. Was even lugging 2 pushchairs about at one point. Kids really don't cost that much if you're sensible, especially the first one...

Re: M2 Competition reviews.

Who on earth is going to give a negative review and risk not getting an invite effectively harming their own earnings and career? Nobody. The very best one was the Golf R launch a few years back. All the journalists were invited out to test the car in conditions were deep snow and the cars were it ...

Re: Introduce a mandatory prison sentence for vehicle theft

They're too busy out investigating the latest online submitted car cam footage of someone making a wrong turn.

As a nation we tie up the police with so much petty nonsense that the real crimes go unsolved.

Whats the worst/best fart you've ever done?

Cleared out the gym a few years back, people were throwing down weights and exiting sets early as it crept down the gym. Not been able to replicate the feat since, but will remain a proud achievement.

Re: Shocking M2 depreciation

So I bring forward a discussion about minimising loss of hard earned money which we all care about and your response is that I should just buy a 2008 Corsa? How insightful of you!. Is there no flexibility of your mind that can actually bring forward a less emotional response as I’m not worried - I’...

Who said it was a future classic? Almost every sporty model released these days is being touted as a "future classic". How many were made? Are they really rare?

Re: Help needed low fuel pressure on dyno couldn’t map my m135i

I will be honest not clued about remapping it was a rolling road remap so could his software make it drop fuel pressure? I am 4 1/2 hours drive away from you it’s always the way Some things are worth the effort. It's also cheaper than headscratching your way round the problem, when you don't know w...

Re: Shocking M2 depreciation

In all fairness, I really think M2 prices will hold when the new car comes out. A new car priced at 60k+ isn't going to put much downward pressure on a car priced at 30k. If anything, it might even bring them up. Get it bought, might be the cheapest car you'll ever own, in 12 months time you'll sell...

Re: Shocking M2 depreciation

Hi guys I am planning on buying an M2 soon however I am quite concerned about the shocking depreciation on these cars in the last 6 months. As you can see there is a 2016 M2 DCT with 30k miles on auto trader for £31k! https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201807098267877?make=BMW&sort=pric...
