Re: M140i LCI2 - Red Needles

The newest version of the instruments isn’t supported by Bimmercode yet, but I hope it is soon because I want to do this too.

Re: The M140i photo thread

The SO in Shadow edition guise with the darkened lights and grilles looks immense.

Re: M140 3dr Shadow Edition AVAILABLE NOW - cancelled order

Just seen the YT video of it and it looks superb.

Really love those 719's against the Sunset Orange.

Re: Shadow edition tyres

Yep. Have you checked the rear alloys are the right width Panholio? I am just uploading a video of my 3 door car and maybe its the skinny tyres but to my eye the rears don't look as wide as they should. Be interested to know as a tyre swap is relatively simple however waiting for 2 new 719s to arri...

Re: Shadow edition tyres

Do we think BMW have cocked up and put the wrong tyres on the rear of my car? I'm going to play hell on Monday if this is the case. Considering the 436M's still come on 245/35/18, I would say it is quite likely. Some people have suggested the 225/40/18 might be all round for the X-Drive version, wh...

I wonder if it's because the one in that pic has X-Drive? :?
That's a fair point, I hadn't considered.

Looking at the main image on this page, it looks like the rear tyres on this car might be 225/40/18, not good.

Sorry, after seeing the comments about tyres I did try and zoom in and tweak the photo in editing to try and make it out, but no luck.
Thanks for looking, much appreciated.

I don't suppose from the full size images you can see what size rear tyres this car is sitting on can you?

That's the impression I got too. I'm going to wait for TRL to get back from hols and see what he says.
Also ordered with TRL, so if you can let me know how you get on I'd be grateful?

Re: Shadow edition tyres

The Genius people just told me that it is possible to swap the specified alloys after the car goes into production, so changing to the 436ms might be a solution. Don't they add extra rubbish to the suspension for run flats though? Funny because the Genius people told me that as my car is 'confirmed...

Re: Shadow edition tyres

Thanks for the add to the site. Shadow M140i ordered for Sept. During spec'ing the car opted for black 719M alloys and could NOT opt for RFTs, so it defaulted to non-RFTs. Now after reading this post and contacting Genius things appear to be different. Runflats, either Michelin or Continental to be...

Re: Shadow edition tyres

Would still like to hear from a few people with the black 719's to see what they have fitted.

Have a Shadow Edition on order for 01/09 with black 719's and really don't want for it to arrive on 225/40's on the rear.

Will be following this thread with interest.
