Ghost's M140i

Post by GhostM » Wed Feb 21, 2018 6:12 pm

Thought il get a thread started as iv had the M140i about a month or so now, honestly didn't think i would be enjoying it as much as i am, it's a great little car!
Bought it as a daily, wanted to stick with a BMW although was close to getting a Golf R or S3.
I have a few things planned but not a lot, MP kit, JB+, new exhaust (MPE is poor imo), some springs and spacers in due time.
Anyway, some quick pics of my last two cars which i still miss :cry:

Nice trio of motors there Ghost 👍

I’m sure that gravel car park will look familiar to regulars of the ‘blast’ :wink:

I know the Evo is on another level but how would you compare it to the M140 on a straight line speed? As I’m looking for one.

Hmm, straight line it felt quicker because of the turbo punch after the substantial lag but i wouldn't necessarily say it was quicker. M140i is nice and quick but really pushing it out of tighter corners i feel it struggling due to lack of proper diff in the rear.
Evo is more fun (i have had a VIII and IX) but not great on long journeys or as a daily due to comfort. It's definitely the more exciting and involving car to own though and in the twistys and track, it is exceptional.
