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

Really hard to photo the metallic in Melbourne Red, but trust me it’s popping!

Thank you Mikko
Information and advice is much appreciated :-)
I'll do some more checking because mine is a stock 2016 RWD M140i with Comfort / Sport and Sport plus modes which I think is what you mean by adaptive suspension ?
Thanks again

Due to the weather recently I've not been able to wash mine (too hot!) - so hoping to get it back to looking like this soon :)

Nice, VERY nice !
I can see Maxton (or similar) front splitter, Blackout detailing around lower vents, Black kidney grills and M3 mirror covers but would you mind telling me if suspension is stock or lowered and what wheels / tyres you have because they seem to fill the guards so much better than mine do

Hi buddy thanks for the nice comments. You are very correct Maxton front splitter. It’s the shadow edition so comes with the black kidney grilles and black tinted lights. Then I had the lower grilles wrapped and yes auto ID black M3/4 style mirrors. The wheels are the standard shadow edition extras. iirc 718 style. Then the car is lowered on motech Eibach springs with 12/15mm spacers.

She's finally here! Was a little concerned about the effect the particulate filter would have on the stock exhaust, but still sounds great with pops and cracks when cold :thumbs:

    Looks great, we’re the black grills standard or have you fitted them yourself?
