What type of wheel alignment would you opt for when putting on new wheels — BMW M135i M140i M235i M240i UK

What type of wheel alignment would you opt for when putting on new wheels? I'm putting on the 405's tomorrow and was hoping to find a company to wheel swap and do alignment on my drive, kill two birds with one stone. But I'll looks like I'll change them myself then head to a garage.... what's best. Laser? Kwik-fit mentioned their hunter system but quoted a stupid price!

Anyone experienced the drivetrain warning that intermittently puts the car into... — BMW M135i M140i M235i M240i UK

Anyone experienced the drivetrain warning that intermittently puts the car into a sort of limp mode after fitting JB4? Seems to be linked to traction control cutting in aggressively. Any fix for this? Apart from restarting which I've already figured out. Also, will this be saving fault codes that BMW will be able to see when it happens?

      2 series front splitters — BMW M135i M140i M235i M240i UK

      2 series splitters are now available to order if anyone is after one. They fit all 2 series with msport bumper m240i m235i etc.. They are made from 10mm foamex, the same material as I used for the 1 series. They are a matt/satin black finish and are easily paintable. They require drilling the bumper in 4 places and cavity bolts fitting. I will fit them for free if you travel to me. The other screws fit in holes already under the bumper. Testing is finished and these are solid. Postage in the UK is available for an extra £30. Any questions feel free to ask

        Ben Scupham created a poll in BMW M135i M140i M235i M240i UK. — BMW M135i M140i M235i M240i UK

        Hello all, I bought my first M135i (2013) two weeks ago and have been wondering what if any mods to do.

        I've noticed quite a few of you have done some subtle things like the front splitter. However with my car being white I'm not sure if it will be as discrete as with the blue/grey paint jobs that so many of you have.

        Opinions on whether to keep it standard or go for a front splitter and if so, which ones would you recommend?

        Thanks in advance.

          Just come home on from work on foot and noticed the mirrors were not folded in on my 235 on driveway. Tried the door and was open. This is not the first time this has happened. Definitely locked it last night so must have been the over sensitive keys again when I put them away in the house in their normal hiding place. I have the settings to Auto Lock so shouldn't this lock the car after a period of time if left open ? I know my old man has same problem with his 430 often going out on a morning to a fully opened boot on his driveway ! Maybe it's me being a bit ham fisted but grateful for thoughts on the auto lock function taking care of this issue or if I have a fault. Cheers

              Hi Guys. I'm looking for some advice. I'm taking my winters off my M135i and fitting new MPSS. From factory they come with 225/40/18 88Y TL for the front and 245/35/18 92Y XL (*) TL for the rear. I'm thinking about putting 225/40/R18 92Y XL (*) TL on the front i.e. higher load rating than factory. If anyone had done similar or indeed has advice it would be appreciated.

                In need of some help, I've just curbed one of my wheels BAD, I'd say three quarters of the rim. I was going round a nothing bend at 30-40 mph and I don't know if I hit some diesel or something but the back end went like it was on ice, when I corrected it the back near side hit the curb. So I need a wheel refurb-er in the Romford or surrounding area. Thank you

                    September Reg M140i... only took 5 months for this to go like this! All you do if this happens is call the dealer, tell them and they get replaced without any issue. If you haven't checked your exhaust tips in a while go and have a look, you could get a new pair for FREEEEE. Get my new ones Tuesday. Hopefully Carbon MPE within 4 weeks too

                      M140i stg2 (with decat) testing today was interesting. Great power to be had but limitations of the fuel system were very quickly shown up in map2.

                      Map1 is really on the limit of safe AFR and high RPM in map2 on 99ron was starting to go lean. 400bhp really is the limit on the B58 without any additional fuelling mods.

                        Rang my insurers today to change over from the M135i to the new M140i for next week. Told them all the extras being added at the dealer from new (405s, spoiler etc, MPE and the Limited Slip diff) seems they were happy with all the extras. Surprisingly the car is less risky than the M135i so I am getting a refund of £6:54. Good stuff.

                          I am in need of some advice.

                          I ordered the splitter from maxtondesign.co.uk for my 135i.

                          It was delivered today but cleanly snapped. I personally didn't sign for it as I was out at the time but I think a colleague did (had it delivered to work).

                          What can I do? As it says on their website to check goods before signing.

                          I'll give them a call tomorrow but realistically do I have a leg to stand on?

                          (The packaging is absolutely abysmal, plastic sack type thing and just the carton box).

                          *** EDIT *** just in case anyone sees this.

                          Maxton have sent out a replacement diffuser after I sent them pictures. Easy no hassle.

                              Can anybody explain why my 2016 M135i when using the connectedApp only allows opening of doors but NOT locking it's not even an option. Seems weird to be able to only unlock it. I've tried uninstall and reinstall the latest app. Light flash etc works so the app is communicating with the car.

                                        David Appleby & I have recruited some extra moderation help given the growing size of the group. Stuart Murray is being promoted for his general level of awesomeness and the level of contribution he has around here. We're also going to let Ryan loose with the reins to help keep things in check. Bit of a trial to see how it works out. Any questions, let me know. Me and Dave aren't going anywhere.
