Matt's M240i

Post by Matt88 » Tue May 16, 2017 10:04 am

So after having my 123d for 3 and a half years I sold it in November last year.

Until I found an M240i, specifically Auto, Estoril and Red Leather, which there wasn't many used for sale from BMW so I remained patient.

I finally found one in Feb from BMW near Gatwick and it has a great spec:

• Cruise control with brake function.
• Heated front seats.
• BMW Professional navigation system.
• Sport automatic transmission.
• Harman Kardon hi-fi.
• Driver comfort package.
• Sun protection glass.
• Sun protection package.
• Exterior Mirrors - folding with anti-daz.
• Front and rear park distance control (PDC).
• Black panel display. full.
• Concierge Service.
• Front armrest with sliding adjustment.
• Windscreen with grey shade band.
• Reversing assist camera.
• Real time traffic information.
• Media package - Professional.
• Remote Services.

Additionally I have put on Black grills and the performance exhaust after about 10 minutes of getting it home.
In the future I am looking to get the BCS mid pipe, some bigger slash cut tips, performance front lip and rear diffuser.

After a wax and a layer of topaz at the weekend I managed to get some photos.

Cant fault the car so far after 3 months of ownership!

This arrived today:

The BCS mid pipe sounds unbelievable, tone is a lot more deeper and more pops and gurgles with very loud bangs when lifting off high in the rev range.

Only tried it in Sport mode but there was no drone when driving normally.

This is with the performance exhaust fit also.

Fit the BMW performance rear diffuser today, all parts are matte black currently but might do blue edges and then the middle and center carbon wrapped.
