F40 Boot liner

Can you give me a price for the F40 boot liner please?
I assume they're all the same across the model?

Cheers

Re: Anyone tried the M135 on track yet ?

READ & UNDERSTAND MY POST CLEARLY - I am not criticising any invidual who buys their car with a PCP plan, am I??? What I am criticising is the sheer lack of enthusiasts posts on a what is supposedly a performance car forum. I am used to forums where people talk about the actual car itself, it's cha...

Re: Tyres on M135i?

Mine came with Continental EcoContact 6 on my 18s. I'm pretty sure they're just using whoever supplies the cheapest at the time. There seems to be no other method to it.

Re: Anyone tried the M135 on track yet ?

The "different market" is the PCP brigade, the accountants, the people whose knowledge of and passion for cars is non-existent. Just look at this forum for example, very few real enthusiasts, no one talking about HOW the car actually drives, no one talking about suspension, about modifications, etc...

Re: M performance parts

According to Cotswold the rear spoiler is due in stock in Germany today and they are expecting delivery next week. I've ordered one and have been told it will be with me the week after next.

Re: Anyone had BMW X protect on their new F40?

It's not great stuff but for free you may as well have it to offer at least some protection. However, if you want your car properly protected then I'd advise either learning to do it yourself or paying a local reputable detailer to do it for you You could just get this stuff for free then when it st...

Re: M140i vs M135i - Quarter Mile DRAG RACE

Personally, I don't care which is quicker but it was always going to be the M140i winning a drag race.

I miss the B58 sound but that's it. I'm thoroughly enjoying my M135iX and to me that's all that matters.

Re: Unofficial Picture Thread

Received my car yesterday morning and loving it. Spent a good 7 hours cleaning it yesterday but ran out of time so it's a bit rush and no where near complete. Here's some pics anyway.

Re: M135 Gearbox Concerns

I noticed this today on my first commute in to work. Coming off the Dual Carriage way, I lifted off to slow down rather than using brakes, however it just coasted for absolutely ages, barely dropping speed.

This is my first Auto though so I have no idea what to expect, but did find that odd.

Re: Drive to Neutral by itself when stopped

I assume you can only disable stop/start by pressing the console button every time you get in the car, unless it can be done via the car settings menu ? Texy With the F20 you could use BimmerCode to program Stop/Start memory. I'd imagine that would be an option with the F40 too but haven't looked i...

Re: Drive to Neutral by itself when stopped

First drive out, 12 miles on the clock and I've just had this. The engine sounded like it was about to stall but it recovered and went in to natural. Wonder if it's the same thing or a different issue as I get a strong burning smell on the outside of the car after driving too. I had the burning sme...
