Project Panda M140

Post by TAS » Sun May 27, 2018 8:38 am

Hello chaps. Been a while since I’ve posted much on here. Picked up my brand new M140i shadow edition on Friday. Just thought I’d upload a few pics and keep it up to date with the mods I carry out.

My previous BMWs

Now my new one

Can’t wait for it to be ran in and see how it compares to my old M135 it’s certainly quieter since that was decayed haha. Don’t think I will be going to same route with this. But maybe a Remus cat back 🤔

The exhaust is expensive but decent bit of kit.

Team at Motech are awesome and look after you well, won’t regret it.

Been down to motech today. Had the infamous motech stance fitted. Whilst I was there I had a Maxton front splitter fitted. Also picked up a carbon speed spoiler which I’ve fitted and it’s currently sat in the garage setting. Pictures to follow of that

The car now feels so much tighter and sharper can’t wait to give It some to see the difference.

Fantastic! The “Motech Stance” makes a huge difference to the way it looks and handling.

Be sure to get pics of the spoiler when fitted

Quick one from the weekend at the Car Cafe Nottingham meet.

So much better without a plate.
