Has anyone got as far as needing brakes yet?
Had my front discs and pads replaced under warranty. Asked the service guy how much and he said about £1000. Not sure how much I believe him on that though.

The contis only lasted 10k miles for me. Hoping to get much more out of the PS4S I replaced them with. Got nearly 30k miles from MPSS on my M135.

Insurance is quite a bit more than my M135 was and if the car is relatively new the tax will be more because it's over £40k.

Other than that, the costs are about the same.

It's just plain odd how long PSSs last on M135i isn't it!?
F20 M135i - most toys
F80 M3 - even more toys - gone!
F87 M2 - most toys

I’m amazed how long they’re lasting on my M140i. To say how narrow the rears are and the power / torque they have to cope with is impressive. They can’t be that hard either as I think they grip superbly well even in the cold.

Yep, our M140i grips a lot better than my M2 and is quick as f'ck too!

Although I've only just got it and running it in, I'm getting around 23MPG. I do a fair amount of M25 though.

My insurance renewal (Admiral) rocketed though from around £550 in M135i to £1500 in M2! Mods declared too on both.

My insurance is roughly the same for each <£400 but mileage on M2 is about a 1/3rd of the M140i

Who's your policy with? May give them a go as mine is up for renewal at the end of the month.
