CJ,

 

Don't get me wrong. I'm not moaning here. Its not that it isn't the car for me. It's just the revelation that this is quite a rapid car and takes me outside my comfort zone of feeling confident about whatever it can chuck at me.

 

No worries Tony. ;)

 

Few more pics of mine. As I say driven in all weather's..

I think BMW have done a very good job with the M135i, its fun, practical and does'nt break the bank account..  :)

Very nice but I do prefer the colour of your old one which is odd as I'm normally a fan of red cars.

Hope it gives you many happy miles:-)

Nice. :cool: I'm very very close to going for one of these. Took a red on red demo out two weeks ago and really liked it. :o 13 years of Type_Rs is the only thing standing in my way at the moment. Well, that, and growing up a bit, and the deposit, and the monthly payments, and the fuel bill.....:roflmao:

When I think back to the first comments about the 1 series on this forum, when they originally launched, this thread makes me giggle. :roflmao:

Coincidently I had the same thought last week. I'm still not a fan of the overall body shape but familiarity and some of the sportier models tweaks mean they no longer make me react as they used to.

Whoop whoop. Fantastic colour that red. That makes two of us on here now CJ. Got mine about two months ago.

Are you on the 135i/235i/140i/240i FB Group Arch, as I recall someone posting they had been out in a red on red demo some weeks ago.

Obviously you will miss the R but I don't think the 140 will disappoint, the new B58 lump is so good and quite different to the outgoing N55.:)

Congrats Tony, how are you finding the B58 lump compared to the N55 in the 135i. Have to say I love it BMW have hit the spot again..+++

Hi cj

Hope you are well?

Congrats on the new 140i :) very nice and I'm loving the colour.

Be interested to hear your comparisons against the 135i. I'd ask S3Bangs but I understand he only drives around in 'comfort' mode ;)

You are right Max. I only drive in comfort. :lol::lol:

Fortunately this time I've ventured in to sport mode a couple of times:P

I only got past the bedding in mileage just before I left on holiday so have only 'thrashed' her once.  Think current mileage is about 1280 so....

First impressions. 

Suspension is better, Not as skittish as the pre-lci

Pulls better than the N55 to the red line. You can feel the power is more linear. 

Sound is a little subdued.  Think the previous model was louder. 

Steering feel is better. 

So in summary. Better but not by mind blowingly much. +++

Mook's the tart. He's stalking everyone with his lewd propositions. I think his new bird must be on holiday or something. :rolleyes:

I know you were referring to Mook. Tart is not just what comes to mind when it comes to him. Perv....maybe. You may be right though. Definitely appears like he's on heat or something.
