Great stance JB. Any chance you could share the specs on the wheels?

Cheers, sure no problem the wheels are 8x18 et40 front and 9x18 et44 rear, standard sized MPSS at the moment but will go wider once they wear down :)

Thanks JB.
I'm also going 18x8 ET40 for the front.

But with rear, just be mindful of going wider than stretched 245's.

He mentions the CCH-R's specifically also (18x9 ET44).

8" ET40 should be fine with up to 245 tyres front and rear and perhaps even 8" ET35 with 225 tyres
8.5" ET45 should be OK with up to 245-255 tyres and 8.5" ET38 is OK with 225 tyres (I have this for winter set-up)
9" ET50 is OK with up to 265 tyres (rear) and 9" ET45 is OK with 245 tyre
9.5" ET50 should be OK with up to 255 tyres (rear) as I've read with some VMR wheel installs

Problem with staggered wheel sets is that I've seen for the 1er is that the wider 9" rear wheels are rather aggressive which means having stretched tyres (245's) for them not to rub...e.g. BBS CH-R 9" ET44 & OZ Ultraleggera 9" ET40 are notable examples... They do fit but careful tyre choice is required!
Hence I've chosen to go 18x9 ET50.

But hot damn the CCH-R looks really good. Love the stance with the KW's.

Was thinking of 255s on the rear, you got me thinking now...

picked her up a few weeks ago to replace a 135 which was stolen after they broke into house, braking down 2 locked doors to get in :( . So with reason I thought a little upgrade to the 140 was needed :wink:

You might notice the improvised security around the front wheel, did this till the "Dislok" arrived

sleep with the key, no it gets put in a RFID protective pounch and locked in gun safe at night or when away, hoping DISLOK is enought to put then off so they go somewhere else now. Yes, Flash your right its same as yours, a VO. I wanted this or another blue one but with the red seats, but when i saw this reduced from £21k to £19,800 in leeds i had to take the 2 hours drive to check it out as it was advertised with 29k miles (I do 3k a year so no issue) and no extras, but from the pics i could see HK, Cruise, LED, PDC rear, manual, but alas no adaptive which i was after wanted.

Think from the videos released by the birmingham police showing how it only takes 10 secs at night to relay your key signal to the car and drive off everyone should have a RFID protective pouch.

Went to take some photos yesterday. It was such a nice evening and the hue of the sunlight was beautiful. Took some pictures of my car as well, while at it. Gotta love the valencia orange. :)

Hi
Your M140i look awesome :D
Could you advise if it has stock suspension in these photos though ?
The reason I ask is I was looking at either a VMR V703 or V710 in the same sizes you mention (19 x 8.5 and 19x9.5) but am being told they don't fit without coil over suspension change.
Sorry, I know my questions have been asked and answered a number of times already but I'm finding having to switch between the various pages to find answers confusing as well as time consuming.
Thanks

Suspension is completely stock adaptive suspension. And the car has an xDrive that may differ a little from RWD model, at least it is quite challenging to lower an xDrive. You have to have very specific offsets to clear the struts and the wheel arches, though. VMR made a special run of these V710 for BMW 1 and 2-series: 8.5x19 ET43 front and 9.5x19 ET50 rear, don’t know how widely these are available through dealers, I had to order directly from VMR Europe.

TTS traded in against this... had just 1 week so no decent photos yet.. first impressions are good.. only negative, not as good looking as the TTS ( in my opinion) and the steering feels a tad vague.

Have the mpe fitted.. sounds blinking lovely.. a whole lot better than the TTS so far very happy
