Re: Was looking at putting my m140 up for sale but prices are shocking

I PXed my 140 Shadow Edition for £26k a month ago. 5 door auto, 3k on the clock. is that because they gave you more as you were buying a new car from them? always tricky when haggling as they could discount their car, or give you more for yours. Happy to check trade in price if you PM me the reg It...

Re: dreadful exhaust flap rattle .

Mines rattled a handful of times but some of the videos I see really dont seem that bad. i can hear the arguements that you speant x amount on a car and all the rest I hear yah but surely I cant be the only one that thinks rejecting the ca...

Re: In case anyone is interested....

My budget is in terms of monthly payments. I am sure I could get one for less than I am paying now, but the issue is PX. Car is only 5 months old but settlement is 29K, so no way I can get out of it. Is that 29k based on the annual statements you get and maybe based on them adding all the Interest ...

Re: ATTEMPTED THEFT BIRMINGHAM

Guys, new to this but what is a Ghost?

Re: dreadful exhaust flap rattle .

Mine did it for about that length of time the first time it happened. It's been gradually getting worse since then: when I started it up last Saturday it carried on rattling for about five minutes before it settled down (I could still hear it as I was driving around). Maybe I'm just getting a 'ligh...

Re: In case anyone is interested....

I myself am having a sort of internal struggle with regards to my M140i. I love the car, the engine and especially the noise, however I am just not a fan of RWD. I freely admit I am a straight line speed nut and it frustrates me that I cannot just floor the M140i without it fishtailing. I am hoping...

Re: dreadful exhaust flap rattle .

I noticed mine was doing it this morning while I scraped the windows. Still not sure what the fuss is about. Once warm after about 30 seconds to a minute it stops and I can't hear it in the car anyway. Can't believe people reject cars over this, but each to their own. Mine did it for about that len...

Re: dreadful exhaust flap rattle .

Mine is rattling really badly now even when the exhaust has warmed up. It seems to be getting worse every time I start the car.

Re: In case anyone is interested....

I had a Golf R for ten months (I signed up to VWROC while I was looking) and it was capable but never exciting IMO. The engine in particular was as dull as ditchwater. I wholeheartedly agree with the comments about not driving like a d*ck in the wet. I'm sorry if that's how my posts (here and on VWR...

Re: In case anyone is interested....

I agree with the earlier comments as they were sensible but they guy who said he couldn’t compete with the Santa Fe in the wet is a silly comment I’d say as you just need to be careful with the throttle. Maybe I’m getting old but racing cars in the wet is just dangerous and stupid in my Opinion! An...

There is a poll somewhere on this forum about numbers of problem exhausts if you do a search.
