Re: My new 1M

Wow, simply stunning!
Have you got many plans, or just to drive and enjoy?

I’ll never forget the little drive I had in one way back when :)

So you collected on Friday and went romping on Sunday? You’re a brave man indeed, if that’s not wearing a front end PPF :shock:

For a filling, high-protein snack, I like Muller Light Yogurts. Tasty, and less than 99 Calories.
Me too :)

Re: diet plan

Hey guys Looking for some advice on healthy eating. I’m trying to shed a few pounds off the belly area and would like some meal ideas to take to work. I don’t really get a lot of time at night to be making a 3 course meal for the next day so could do with it being quick and healthy. I’m out the hou...

Re: Revs when changing down gears

Really need a much more exacting explanation, with perhaps even a video. I would think that BMW would not book the car in to inspect it for doing rev matching. During rev matched changes, the size of the blip varies. If you change down to 2nd at 20mph, it will be very small. If you change to 2nd at ...

Re: Revs when changing down gears

Sounds like automatic rev matching, which is designed to help change down, without upsetting the car, or adding wear to the clutch. In a manual car, you’re supposed to do this yourself when you downchange. The ‘blip’ just before the clutch is re-engaged, stops the plates contacting at differing spee...

Re: 130i - inexpensive pads for road and track?

EBC were great on my 130i and are not too expensive either :) Better than oem cold, but once hot they hauled the car down amazingly well, when the oem pads would have given up ages ago. I drove the Nordschleife and the GP track. I know they don’t suit all applications, but they work well on the 130i...

Re: Is my friend full of BS?

You’re right to be sceptical, as a 2014 Cooper has 136bhp and a published top speed of 130mph. Most medium hatches need 130bhp+ to hit numbers above 120’s. The Cooper needs about 40% more power to achieve a lower speed on the flat. Down a steep hill, following another car? Still doubtful really, as ...

Sorry to see this, but well done for following him and stopping. I guess you’re fairly safe in a built up area. At night in the country would be a different story.

Re: BMW Shame on you!

Timing your car buying is never easy! Brand new model? Teething problems and zero discounts available. Mid life? Face lift / new engine on the horizon? End of production? Over familiar and new model make yours feel old too soon! The Z3M was very dated but the Z4 when it was first released. Now do so...

I get that. But what's the tangible difference. 0.1s faster 0-60? Suspension is basically unchanged....

Spring rates are the same,that’s all.

There are loads of differences, so the new S55 version will be quite different to drive.

The 0-60mph time is 0.0000001 of the importance :roll:
