Re: M235i Carjacked - Birmingham Area

Omg! 4 guys balaclavad up, swinging sledge hammers. What the hell is happening to this country and society in general? Hounding and caging people for calling each other rude and other nonwoke names on social media, people who don't pay the enforced tax for funding the BBC even when they don't watch...

Re: Valencia Orange.....

The colour plate for M sport models is usually a disgrace. Black, grey, blue or white and boring variants of them. Not even boring variants are available. One black, one blue, one grey, two whites (oh goodie!), and orange. That's it. Even the red has gone now. Buying a BMW years ago was brilliant -...

only 12 silver. I didn't realise silver was so unpopular.
I actually think a clean Silver car is the best colour on the M135i - it really shows the lines off.
Glacier Silver discontinued from M Sport and M Lite trims in 2017.

Re: HK upgrades?

Hi guys, hoping someone more knowledgeable than me can advise here - Have HK in my 67 plate 140, and as most will agree the HK is pretty turd. Turd? I certainly don't. It's a fairly noisy car with plenty of tyre rumble which would mask almost all of the detail in an audiophile setup when not parked...

Re: M140i Stolen

I am still shocked that they have stolen an M140i. However stolen cars have demand abroad and it’s still a fast premium car. Shocked they've stolen a fast car... in Britain? :?: :) Getaway cars aren't driven quickly around B-roads, with the drivers looking for good front-axle traction in the damp. ...

Re: Anyone swapped from an M140i to an M240i

I’d have an M2C in heartbeat if I could afford one (buying it and the running costs). They appeal way more than the M4 (but I’ve never got on with the way the 4 series looks), but I’d have an M3 over both. The M2 looks better than the normal 2 series, hiding the slightly awkward proportions better....

Re: Another Comfort-Sport-Sport+ Question

The throttle map is artificially sharper in Sport to give a feeling of urgency but BMW have sensibly decreed that if you are brave or daft enough to turn off all the nannies a bit of modulation might be useful and return the map to normal. If you want an on-off switch throttle then code away but th...

But, if dropping £30k on a car, surely you want one that you actually like the look of? :P
I assume so - you'll have to ask the guy who ordered it if he likes the look of it :?:

You don't need to drive it to see it looks like a minger! :( Well, a handful of us still care about how the car drives, i.e., we're drivers, not owners/internet posters... Curious, your definition of “owners/internet posters” is??? Most people here are probably too young to remember one of the key ...

Re: What exhaust/what to do for loud pop?

Carry a little baggie of firecrackers with you and every now and again, pop a couple out the window? : )

Sometimes I see cro-magnon men lurching back and forth in low gear, in a dead straight line (of course), to make their horse and cart pop and bang.

The problem is you tried to with a mistake a lot of ignoramuses make - that BMW's 6 is a V. So I'm afraid it just came across that way.

Re: M140I - How much would you sell for?

Plus it's now out of BMW Warranty.. I don't want to be doing them miles in a car like this. An old clunker like that? No wonder - they'll be abandoned at the side of the road in no time. Oh wait, 66 plate - I thought you said 19 66! :lol: Seriously, it's not an old car and if you looked after it it...

Re: Anyone swapped from an M140i to an M240i

The M240i drives better than the M140i. I'm sure that whatever the price difference is it'll be recovered at sale time. Coupes are always more desirable and there is far too many M140is. The M2 is far better looking and far better to drive. Like I said, I find the M2 a bit cartoonish to look at and...
