Re: Oil consumption 2013 m135i

Mine's on 80k and hasn't used a drop yet, so higher than that if they're run-in sympathetically and serviced reasonably regularly.

Re: Banging noise over potholes 123d

Both sides should look broadly similar to this (M-Lite):

Re: M135I Wrap

I've seen an Audi which had cuts in the factory paint after the wrap was removed; make sure to go somewhere reputable where they guarantee it's fully reversible.

Re: Another wheel thread: 17's on 140

265mm rears should be fine as long as the wheels are at least 9" and the offset at least ET48.

I used to run 9" ET50 and 265 wide Michelin SS on the rear lowered on KW and they didn't rub (close mind) Fronts were 8" ET45 with 5mm spacer 245 tyres Holy thread resurrection Batman!

Re: Will we ever see a bump in M140i values?!

No confirmation on name yet, just wishful thinking on my part. If we end up with 2 different coupes both called the M240i, it could be problematic on here. Folks posting in the wrong place, receiving incorrect advice, etc. (We had 'gassafe' on Sunday who couldn't tell an E Series from an F, for exam...

Re: Looking to buy my 1st M135/M140 :)

My first M135i had the frizbee airbag, blocked half the dials! Crazy bit of ergonomics.

Re: Eco Pro Bashing

I tried Eco Poo once, it saved me exactly zero fuel, and felt like it was broken. I'd happily have it permanently removed from my car.

Re: Will we ever see a bump in M140i values?!

We've yet to see a bump in the value of 325ti, 130i, 135i, M135i, so I doubt M140i will be substantially different if it's being used as your DD. Not really a dying breed, as the G42 M245i will take over the mantle shortly. Currently new car supply is low and demand high, which has a knock-on effect...

Re: Anyone using bola flb or flc wheels

The next owner will probably want them, most people prefer standard cars (easier to insure, etc). I'd pop the 436m away somewhere safe, and sell the valuable Bola's when the time comes.

If you don't have the room to store them, value will depend on the make of tyres, tread depth, etc?
