    e91 335i. The Unicorn.

    Are you sure that's glue? *** shivers ***

    BMW 535d

    I highly recommend you DO NOT put Kumho PS91s on the back. I gave them a try and they're now on the wear markers after just over 4,000 miles, run since November so not exactly warm and dry, and they have zero grip in anything other than perfectly dry conditions. Go figure! I've got 4x Michelin...

    MarkCup's BMW M140i

    Yer the seats aren't the best...but like the car as a whole, they give the best of both worlds. They just look a bit plain. Shocking to think that they're fitted, albeit with embossed ///M logos, in the original N55 M2! I didn't know this. I thought in just about all aspects the 2 was just a 1...

    Latest video...it's very good, but also rather bad.

    Impulse buy of 2020

    Wind deflectors and flaps just take the edge off it for me. Otherwise, completely lush!

    The New Phone Thread

    That was comical. The lack of stability too...the image on screen was all over the place despite the phone being mounted on a tripod. 100x zoom? Proper 100% marketing BS that the masses that want the latest bestest just lap up.

    I'm still happy with my Pixel 2 XL here, I can't think of any reason why I'd want to change it tbqfh.

    My argument then, as it is now, was how is it any different from people fitting race seats of 4 point harnesses to road cars? You look like a prat regardless :LOL:

    Just for you...:ROFLMAO:

    What's your favourite car related YouTube channel?

    And I've been told I've got girly wanker hands for wanting a thinner steering wheel rim 😂

    Definitely Rob! Someone's already commented on the video that my wheel looks minging, I should wear the gloves more often :ROFLMAO:

    New owner of Clio sport 197

    I ran AD08s on my Clio 200 around Llandow, Goodwood, and Bedford with no issues at all. You'll be fine (y)

    MarkCup's BMW M140i

    I've now covered the same total mileage that I did in my RS in this thing, 19,300 miles, and I've not had one single hint of a thought about getting rid. I think that says a lot!

    M135i - Attempt Number 2

    I did 15k in mine over its first year and I expect there'll be a few k more this year. Economy wise they're really quite good...far better than my NA Clio 200 ever was! Mine's manual too so a good 2-3 MPG worse than the auto.

    Wheels! They suit everything. Apart from Skodas.

    M135i - Attempt Number 2

    I completely agree. I do 20 mph in 2nd or 3rd gear, give the throttle a stab on an empty wide clear sighted roundabout, get hilariously sideways, and then giggle like a child. All at under 30 mph. The only downsides I see in RWD come if you have no control of your right foot.

    M135i - Attempt Number 2

    When the weather's a bit rainy it's 100% upside in a RWD car!

    Not literally of course, but they were the cheapest of all quotes I got by £25 and I have a total excess of only £150.

    MarkCup's BMW M140i

    That doesn't appeal to me, I like that mine is as unassuming as a 114d both inside and out. Plus, by leaving everything standard and not bothering with a remap I can insure with BMW, and they charge pennies. Also, my LSD is not viewed as a mod by them as it's a BMW supplied part. #easylife

    MarkCup's BMW M140i

    That's exactly who I have in mind if I were to do it. Drive in, hand over £600, drive out in an identical car in ALL aspects except it'll pull harder than a Ferrari 360 and still return a fairly easy 30mpg. That's mental.

    MarkCup's BMW M140i

    Nope. I'm 50/50 on that...my warranty expires early in March so it's an option, and a cheap one at that, to easily have it putting out 425bhp + 435lbsft. But I'm really not sure it needs it, I can't ever say I've not been able to scare myself silly in it!

    In other sea level news I realised I'm rapidly approaching the point at which I sacked my RS off for being fragile. Time has goine by so quickly in this thing 😁

    Peugeot 107 - long term bangernomics

    I'm a month in now, I've silconed all three of the rear lights which seems to have stopped the water ingress, and apart from that I've mostly just been kicking its head in. Love this thing. For real.

    No need. She'll hit a tree soon enough while taking a selfie for FB.

    The wind deflectors kill me. If they have a genuine purpose, as people who fit them claim, why do they only appear on cars like this. Awful hideous bits of pointless tat. Otherwise... Actually, no, that still looks sh*t.

    MarkCup's BMW M140i

    This is as far as I got...admittedly not very far! I did also have an Oulton Park day booked once, but having driven the entire way there the evening before, in terrible snowy and icy conditions, I got to the circuit the next morning and it was closed and the day had been cancelled. They...

    MarkCup's BMW M140i

    I'm completely with @massivewangers on this...and couldn't disagree more. To me a circuit is just a playground to explore my car. I like trying to nail a perfect lap, every entrance, every exit, tip-toeing up to the edge of what's available without stepping too far over the line. That never...
