Re: M140i Shadow Edition - Leasing advice (TRL?)

The options I'm going for are: Metallic Paint Adaptive M Suspension Ext Electric Folding Mirrors Heated Front Seats Adaptive LED Headlights Front PDC Not a HUGE selection, but enough that rules out any of the many 'stock' cars that are out there ready for immediate collection! That is a lot of opti...

Re: M140i Shadow Edition - Leasing advice (TRL?)

With a business lease you don't pay the vat but it significantly complicates your accounting and you get a BIK tax. I've always thought personal lease was the way to go for a one-employee company

Re: Delay on M140i

Excellent, car looks stunning! 4th June for me, it's finally been released. Hopefully it'll be like yours. I can't imagine BMW letting something out that's not immaculate. In other news, my missus had bought a 18-month old 330d M Sport and we get that on Friday, so plenty to look forward to. Sent fr...

Re: Delay on M140i

My replacement order arrived in the UK today waiting on an updated delivery when it gets to PDI. To give you an idea of some of the damage caused by it my dealer showed me an x1 they got up that had slipped through and the alloys sills and passenger side wheel arch had visible rust bubbles forming ...

Re: Delay on M140i

How are people getting on? Has anyone got their car yet? Like you @NL-Mike, I'm not happy about getting a repaired car. I now have confirmation that it's not been written off, but no details on what (if any) repairs are necessary. I've made it clear I want to know the full details or I'm not accepti...

Re: Delay on M140i

Has anyone received their delayed car yet? I've not and it's got me wondering if it's been written off and they're building a replacement. Otherwise I can't think why it would be so late. I've been lent a courtesy car in the meantime though so can't complain, am being looked after. Sent from my ONE...

Re: My Harmon Kardon is Garbage- 674 HK

What do people think of the Harmon kardon system? I have a courtesy car with it, and I wouldn't call it garbage but it's not what I'd hoped for. My 1 series (2014 F20) had the standard system, and I liked it. Not stunning like a custom setup but a good full bodied sound. The HK sounds thin. There's ...

Re: android 8.1 issues

I've been having similar issues since Android 8. They reworked Bluetooth heavily, but I think it must be down to individual apps whether it works properly or not. In Spotify it depends what you're doing, on playlists there's track data and I can skip forwards and backwards, but not on random plays. ...

Re: Delay on M140i

It sounds more and more like the "extreme weather" story is a smokescreen and the ECU story is the real one.

Which is disappointing because they're not being particularly truthful. It's worse than just saying the ECU story in the first place!

Re: Delay on M140i

Has anyone waiting been given a VIN? Apparently there's a way to track it on the BMW web site. But if you're in the dark Tony I doubt the web site will say any more.

Re: Delay on M140i

I've got exactly the same problem, my M140i is also delayed. The explanation was slightly different, it was described as 'extreme environmental conditions', as if a group of cars at the port of exit had been hit by bad weather or something. But speaking to my agent has shed no light on that whatsoev...

Re: BMW Price increase announced

Damn it I was on the verge of ordering an m140i (quite possibly from you Tony), was just waiting on my local dealer to get me a test drive as I've never had a go in one. Balls.

Re: Is the M140i passive suspension the same as a smaller-engined M Sport?

Fantastic thanks!

It sounds good, I'll have to get a test drive to be sure but it's good to know the passive setup isn't a complete teeth-rattler 😀
