So, I guess I can post it here now that I have it. My new Daily, BMW M140i!

It's a lease which is a somewhat stupid financial descision, I know. But what ever, I end up with a 340ps 500nm car to play with for 3 years :)

I added a shitload of options to see what kind of a deal I could get... Deal was good, so I ordered with those options :)

Here it is:







Firstly I drove it out of BMW Welt in Munich then handed it to a Valet so I could visit the BMW museum.

Then we headed to the dealer to begin the aftermarket treatment that wasn't able to be installed before pickup.


Before:

After:

I see D-Fence has inspired you on the plate. :D

Nice ride, can't wait to experience it in person.

Also: "Selection Cop Relevant Vehicles" - what's that supposed to mean?

Damn, ninja'd.

Holy shit this is amazing... and you are positively insane (but I guess we all knew that, right?). Also QFT on that second half of D-Fence's post :nod:

Nice color choice as well.

And for the first mod I will kick you in the ass the next time I see you.
Black grills.. *sigh*


Also this. While I am usually not at all a fan of chrome of any sort, somehow in this case, with the fairly light blue, I also think it would've worked better.

edit5 or whatever: can't be bothered anymore, forum hates thomas' post, wants to cut it in two :(

It means conformity of production. Meaning, car was audited.
In this case that either applies to most vehicles, or I got lucky and all my BMWs had that so far..

Oh on the matter of the actual car: Having driven 135i's and M135i's, I know this thing is one mean motherfucker and will eat a lot of fast cars alive. My M5 included. Dem evil Turbo!

And it's in a colour! This looks rather nice. Can I have a go? :D I'd like to compare it to DaBoom's 135i. :p The steering can't be harder than in that, right?

Daboom has 130i, which is completely different as it's naturally aspirated...

It's still a 1er, but the only other 1er I've driven was Thomas's, so... :lol:

Too many and yet not enough
Appropriate color and spec! Leasing is the smart call.

Do they not sell the X40i cars with a stick? Not that the 8 speed ZF is bad.

They do, but this car is just stupid quick for what it is and is well-paired with the ZF8. You are not going to shift fast enough to get that fucker off the line and going anywhere near as fast as the ZF does. 4.6s to 62mph and by multiple accounts faster many times for some reason.. and given the fact that he is living just outside of what is probably #2 or #3 of the traffic-jam-capitols of Germany, there is also that unspeakably huge benefit of the automatic there. I mean, you of all people are the one that should understand it with your daily box ;).

What do you mean by hard? Like stiff? Badly padded rim?



And congrats, Joe, as far as new cars go you could do worse :)








But shoulda bought the datsun already!
