Still not sure if I like this thing or not.

What are you not keen on? I've sort of got bored with mine, the opportunities to have fun with it seem to be diminishing, with the increase in speed cameras, potholes etc :(
I’m not really sure tbh. I don’t find it particularly special and as you say, there’s not many opportunities to have much fun with them.

That and some of the “characteristics” I’m experiencing such as clunking brake pads etc. just diminishes the experience. I definitely wouldn’t buy it again in hindsight.

That said, it’s a perfectly capable car but that’s all I think of it as. Previously I see my cars as a bit of toy and this just isn’t fulfilling that.

What would you have got instead with hindsight?

I'm looking at picking up something soon, and I've shortlisted a M140i, a Golf R and am also tossing up a second hand ND MX5 to augment my current TSI Golf.

Where I live in Australia is particularly bad for speed cameras etc so it's pretty easy to get yourself in trouble with *any* car.

Most people's experiences with the M140i seem to be pretty positive for the most part, but like anything people aren't always going to rip into their recent expensive car purchases.

I would say the m140i maybe is a bit too clinical. Kind of missing a manual gearbox tbh.

Thanks mate, bit of infinity wax and then infinity Detailer and an iPhone 7 in decent light lol. I love the red in the way it can be so different in the lights. Could say that for many colours and I have mineral grey and Estoril blue which I both loved but the red has really grown on me as was not a fan a few years back.

Thanks mate, love it when clean but not brilliant when dirty lol

It seems the AW’s have been a bit neglected! 3 months and 4k in the bag!
Finally managed to get round to fitting the TPI spacers, 12mm front 15mm rear, interior complete with lots of M Performance goodies 😁 BCS non res mid section, BMW boot floor mat, M3/4 carbon mirror caps and a BMS clutch stop.
Next on the list in the coming months, Eibach 20/25 springs, Kerscher carbon splitter, Carbon spoiler and underbody brace, drive it some more and clean it more!
