Fellow owners. After a year of ownership, I've decided to create a thread for my m140i. Doubt this will turn into something extremely technical as I won't be going into power modifications but would love to share some information/knowledge I've gathered whilst doing other smaller mods.

List of current modifications(mostly visual):
-CF rear diffuser;
-CF boot spoiler;
-CF wing mirror caps;
-BCS power valve cutback exhaust (sounds epic);
-MMR shift paddles (why didn't I buy them sooner);
-Some M performance interior bits for which I had money. Remainder remains inaccessible for the time being.

List of things that I would love to do:
-Suspension. Stock one is just horrible. Been reading up a lot but so many things, my brain gets lots due to possible combinations;
-M Performance LSD;
-Eventuri intake. Yup. Expensive. But the it looks and sounds....got to stop browsing certain websites haha.

I will dedicate next post to writing up my experience with the first year of owning the car. For now, I owe photos. Will be up as soon as I've found a way to properly mask numberplate as opposed to drawing on top of it haha.

This is going to be the shortest member car thread on the forum. After constantly browsing auto trader I've pulled a trigger on a beast that I will be collecting on Saturday. Will be selling a few bits a pieces from my car and will probably update this build thread once replacement is collected. Unless I get stones thrown at me for it not being a BMW馃お

Placed a deposit for C63. That's what I will be rolling up in for C&M. Now I will be travelling in style between petrol stations haha
I couldn't get on with all the safety stuff on the E300 I had when my car was taken out. Even got strangled by the seat belt tensioner when the car thought it was a better judge of distance than me. Proximity warnings going off when you pass parked cars, the speed limit flashing at you from the dash when going a little quicker than you should. I was glad to get rid of it. Hoping there is not all that jizz on your 63 m8! You will of course have to park with the F40's at C&M :ROFLMAO:

Damn, I will need to cancel the purchase so I can park with you Si ;) gladly I didn't experience any of that stuff you mention. car was lovely, v8 rumble was just something. it's obviously in different expenses league so I am preparing separate budget for that!
