Re: New petrol exhaust filters

I've been reading loads about the slight loss in power and a lot less exhaust noise which is really bad news ... but, do these work like the diesel particulate filters - i.e. if you do loads of short journeys in town are you going to clog them up ? I'm looking to move from my M240i convertible to a...

Re: Do BBS Wheels have a Colour Code ? **Had response from bbs**

Is that the same as Audi-VW-Steel Metallic or Stahlmetallic (Code 4EE) ? 4EE Anthracite ? Refurb guy send me these, he thinks the colour looks too dark but I’d say it’s a pretty close match, what you think ??? Suppose if they are all being done it’s not that big a deal anyhow.... https://farm8.stat...

Re: Most Stolen cars of 2018

If the choice was comfort access or woken in the night with a knife at my throat, I think I’d choose comfort access. Think that’s extremely unlikely really...not saying it doesn’t happen but if some scumbag is prepared to go to such extremes they’d surely target something more exotic than an m lite

Re: B58 Oil Change dilemma

I did my “interim” service at 8k/12 months old. I bought the oil and filter myself which was Castrol Edge FST Titanium 0w30 and the filter was from BMW. My local indy did the service and charged me £50 labour, there was nothing wrong with the filter as I inspected it. I asked them NOT to update the ...

Re: PPF on M140i worth it?

Had the choice of XPel or Suntek when I had mine done by Paintguard near Portsmouth, in March '17 that was just over a grand including VAT either way for full front end (bumper, lights, full bonnet, full wings, A pillars, mirrors) so still significantly cheaper than your were quoted Racey Definitel...

Re: M140i SE Deal...

I just think it’s the general judgement and assumption around here that if someone has a car on PCP and not swaggered into a BMW dealer clicking their fingers and slapped 30 odd grand in cash on the counter.....it automatically means he or she cannot afford it and is not worthy of driving such a veh...

Re: M140i stolen in 30 seconds

I think the violent Pro gangs go for the big ticket cars like M cars, RS cars and swanky urban tractors, not 1 and 2 series Mlites from what i have seen... The other threads suggests they get nicked a lot too. Of course, this is in context - in Britain every kind of crime has rocketed in the last 1...

Re: Most Stolen cars of 2018

I’ve never got the whole tracker thing, it depends on each individuals circumstance of course but such as me with pcp and gap insurance the last thing I would want is my car to be found and handed back to me...especially if it’s been damaged/stripped of parts and needed repairing....it just wouldn’t...
