Ash's Estoril M140i - Ordered

Cheers guys. Pulls like a train, goes like absolute stink! And that's not even to the redline yet.

Done 130miles, and half a tank of fuel....oops!
I have changed the grills over to the Gloss Black M Performance style ones.. makes a big difference.

How much did these grilles set you back? Are they the official m performance ones?

Not official ones no, £52 on eBay, pretty good quality and a great fit too.

They do look pretty spot on actually for non official parts. Suppose with the technology getting better so do the parts

Hey ash,

Car is looking ace mate.....

I'm almost gonna pull the trigger on the m style mirror caps on my mineral grey m240i, but don't know whether to go for mineral fry or gloss black.

Quick question about wing mirror caps, it's hard to see from the pics but does the gloss black match the gloss black that's below the side mirror indicator light??

How did you remove the originals? Was it via remove the mirror or did you just simply pull the old ones off?? Did you break the clips at all?

Carbon fibre looks spot on too ;)
It really depends if you have a theme going with your car. If you have the MP grills then gloss black would set it off nicely, but I think you'd also want a rear diffuser and rear spoiler in gloss black too. MG wouldn't be an issue obviously, and would blend in with the car's paint colour.

I dislodged my mirrors carefully and unclipped the the caps. I am not normally too DIY minded but have managed to put the grills and mirror caps on myself. :thumbs:
