Re: Litchfield M140i Remap

So what does an M140i get with a tuning box vs Litchfield remap vs JB 4 ? Are they all similar ? One uses a 'resistor' (advanced circuit board doing the same thing I guess), one is a proper remap and JB4 is what compared to a tuning box ? Similar but with more hook ups ?? Sorry to sound dense - I k...

Does the autobox cope OK with all the extra torque? Or are these all manual?
Mines auto, I asked about the gearbox and they told me it’s still well within the limits so gearbox mapping isn’t necessary.

As for any reliability concerns, I’ve ran the map for 20k miles and never missed a beat.

They don’t dyno the cars as part of their price, I asked them. This is extra and quite a bit more expensive (which personally I think is a bit poor form and swaying me back towards DMS)
Their reputation speaks for itself, and you get what you pay for. Simple as that really.

Re: Litchfield motors stage 1 remap group buy B58 & N55

Litchfield will be doing my car on 17th June and I've opted for a custom dyno tune so that it's setup up properly with the Motech intake and my exhaust system. I'll post some feedback here once it's done. I really can't wait though and think it'll set the car up nicely! LSD is being fitted in Augus...

Re: Second service cost - really ?

I had my second service done at Halliwell Jones Warrington and the invoice was £480. Mine was covered by service pack. I have no idea how they have the cheek to quote you that much.

Bought mine as well, but my M140 is being held up due to the safety checks of the anti-roll bar. So not even sure when I will see it yet. BMW said I had to register the car now to be able to get the service pack..
What’s with the safety checks of the anti roll bar????

Re: service Pack

No the new service scheme appears to be £20 a month (thats £240 a year) As I said I have a receipt for £399 4 years or 60,000 miles so how is that the new service sheme ? No I meant, they were trying to get as much money out of you so offered the £399 instead as the monthly option doesn’t start unt...

Re: Service done 1200 miles ago - now due in 2400 miles??

I had this on mine, they told me that it’s an estimation from the technician of how much you have left on service components. So mine had 17k until next oil, but 4400 until rear brakes. I asked why and he said that’s the technicians estimate of how long they will last and when the service indicator ...

Re: Mp4s 19s

A mate of mine put them on his Porsche Cayman (19’s). And he said they completely transformed the car. I know different car different handling, same applies, he said he has trouble getting it to loose traction, even in the wet. All the reviews are the same, the tyres are outstanding.

Re: service Pack

I think the £20 per month idea will make them a lot of money. People will see it as not that much money, and pay for it. But people who don’t do high mileage won’t get the use out of it. I paid £299 for the service pack which would have been £300 (1st) and £480 (2nd). This new scheme would see me pa...

I like the look of it moulding to the bumper but it does stick out too far.

Re: service Pack

Given the impending changes in BMW service packs I dropped in at my local BMW (Snows in Portsmouth) to buy a 3 year pack for my 6 month old m140i. The bit of the BMW website which allows you to put your reg no appears to be down First the sales guy tried to persuade me it wasn't available then not ...
