I'm just about to order an M140i, again coming from a Scooby.
After almost 8 years it is time to move on and the M140i seems like a logical progression. Like others I considered the Golf R but the M Lite just seems like a better replacement, and that straight 6, well why not.
Lower road fund license is also a bonus, if I can get a spec. under the £40k RRP
Will miss the Scooby, in the recent bad weather with winter tyres it was invincible.
