After a long wait, and a while away from the 1series world, I'm back. Introducing my M140i (now been named Brutus by a passenger in it last night) :lol:

No immediate plans mate, certainly be getting xmas out the way with then having a further think . May get rid of the chrome grills for black, replace mirror caps for black or carbon and maybe one day the M.P.Exhaust but nothing just yet ! Just enjoying what I've got for now! :D

Good move from a 120d - the fun begins and I don't doubt you'll be having mega fun in the future with it.

Congratulations :band: :spotman:

I'm hoping mine will be with me by the end of the year. I also know what you mean about the exhaust noise. My present M135i's exhaust has just begun rewarding me with some lovely crackles and pops, especially on downshifting through third and second.

Enjoy :)

Shush !!! Don't draw too much attention to it.
I might change it back .... there are people on here that get very touchy when one exploits the "M" colours without owning a proper M car :lol: :lol:

Pretty sure there is a whole thread on how it is not the done thing ! PHAHAHA!
