Callum's M140i

Post by crp207 » Wed Feb 07, 2018 7:08 am

So had the M140i nearly a year now and thought id finally make a thread on its progress,

it came factory fresh in the following spec, sapphire black, auto box, adaptive sus, pro nav, cruise control and a few other options.

stayed "standard" two days and before I paid a visit to GazP for a splitter.

JB4 and downpipe came next,

then Gazp side skirt's, Carbon "M" Mirror caps, and carbon spoiler.

car stayed like this for a while, just enjoyed driving it.

car is currently at scorpion exhausts being a mule for their new M140i cat back and Decat,

future definite mods are;

APEX ARC-8's (rears are here, fronts on the way from America)
M3 LCA's (actually have these just not fitted yet)
H and R 15mm springs


future potential mods are

autoid carbon rear diffuser
Meth/Water injection
Braided brake lines, two piece rotors and m4 pads
alcantara steering wheel


Here's some pics of the car: will upload more when I sort them from my camera

Good choice on the new apex wheels, personally I don't like those standard wheels at all!

You need to add an LSD to the list of forthcoming mods ;)

Nice car :thumbs:

Looks very smart with those subtle body mods.

Definitely agree with wibbles though! With all that power an LSD is surely a must. My standard M135i is fairly useless at putting down all it's power so a JB4 M140i must be even worse! Power is useless without traction!

Looks lovely, so much better than stock with only a few nice touches :)

LSD not essential, you can still have fun without it although it does make a big difference on certain race tracks.
'13 M135i standard.. and will remain so.. I promise... really.. will not modify... or abuse on track..
'91 R32 GTR... basically standard and unmolested... 497 @ rear hubs... never raced nor rallied : https://youtu.be/jhsX0elVG2k

+1, i didn't mind them at first but the more I clean them the more I hate them, seeing the Apex's on an e46 m3 made my mind up instantly

I have been looking into LSD's (Mperformance) it gets the power down pretty well in most conditions, even in the wet its not bad (My last car was actually harder to get traction down 200BHP diesel fabia Vrs) new wheels will have sticky tyres fitted so should be even better

What do these weigh in comparison to the standard items? And are these forged? They look smart as. Very interested to see them on the car.

Wheels will look great on the car. What widths and offsets did you go for as I had considered some for my M140 but wasn't sure on the fitment!
