M140 Thread

  340i M-Sport & 182
I keep looking at this because its very local to me:


But I'm quite set on an auto estate. Has anyone driven a 140i and 340i, were they especially different to drive? My other thinking on hunting for a 340i is that I think a lot of the 140's have been given a hard time while a 340 might have had a gentler life?

You want an M-Sport+ minimum, I wanted an F31 340i in San Marino Blue. That's like trying to win the lottery, however when mine did pop up for sale it was such a good car I went for it and yeah Silvers boring and not really a colour I get enjoyment out of in terms of cleaning it etc but it does look great now.

What does M-Sport+ do over M-Sport? I'm actually a bit lost with all the options!

Ideal would for me would be f31, glass roof, dynamic cruise, LED lights, heated/electric seats, not white, the optional exhaust. But finding anything with low miles, semi local seems to be the first hurdle!

I'm not a massive fan of silver but yours looks spot on (y)

If you go on BabyBM you will find a lot of 140 owners are older and tend to look after their cars, i am not saying they don't drive them hard, but they do seem to look after their cars.

Something i never thought of before getting mine, heated seats are great in the winter, and electric seats are great if your missus drives the car, save loads of f**king about.

You can retro fit better Nav, and it's not too expensive.
Trouble is out of all the cars I dribble at on eBay the 140i seems to have the highest number of CAT N/S cars, like every other add is CAT S and most seem to have a remap. Ideally I just want a standard car which has been owned by David Attenborough and religiously serviced by BMW.... Then naturally I'll ruin it with a remap and some stupid modzzzzz etc 🤣

M-Sport+ gives you the bigger brakes (370mm+painted), HK, Pro nav, LED headlights, privacy glass (but if they're all like mine theyre f**king dark) and 19's, I think thats it. Oh and the seats have a silver piping if they're black like mine for example.

I've got the same on mine too, they look great although I've kerbed them twice now 🤣
And ye I agree, 4.5k for the originals is crazy.
They do certainly look the business! £4.5k is ridiculous though, 666m's are less. Quite like ARC-8's on these.

Spending all that money on performance upgrades I would also ditch the (I'm assuming) 15k miles old run flats!

The XHP is something I keep meaning to have done to mine.

I think they have been replaced as they have loads of tread, I was going to ditch them straight away but aside from the fidgety ride they grip well. Will swap them out in a few months

Fitted the VRSF DP and B58TU plugs gapped at 0.22 and removed the PPF

loads of grunt now and a few chavvy pops and my favourite what only can be described as a thump on the upshifts on part throttle 😁still pretty quiet in comfort mode thanks to the stock valved back box and retaining the resonator
