Amazing car and engine.

I have the M140 and love the engine. I'm already thinking ahead about either the 3/440i when the time comes to replace the M140.

I have red leather interior and use Gyeon Leathercoat to help with keeping dye from the seat.

Stunning! Wish they did this white on the M140i interior instead of the oyster.

Where are you based? Would you be interested in swapping your silver exhaust tips for my black ones that are on My 800 mile old 17 plate M140i (long shot i know haha)

Haha, I loved the optional interior on the 440. The white is stunning, I get what you mean about the Oyster.

I cannot believe you want to swap the black tips! I wanted them on from factory but they said they don't fit from the M140... I don't know how true that is.
Have you looked into it?

I would of done the same I think, the oyster is too much of a cream for my liking so I opted for red.

I've seen a few pics over on babybmw.net over the silver against the black and really liked it! I think one said that they swapped with a 340i but I will double check.

Why don't you like black that looks gorgeous from behind!

To be honest the silver ones have grown on me but the black look good!

I just think the rear end is too dark and hides the exhausts, on a light coloured cari agree they look good

Love it.
The piping finishes off a perfect combo.

just spoke to the sales manager at my dealership who actually sold me my car, this is what he said...

Yep the tips are a straight swap... about £60 for the pair I think.
You need to get a firm grip of the old ones and wiggle them off. Took me a while to do mine.
Sit on the floor behind the car and tug. The new ones slot on and there is v shape slot that the lug slides in to
