New BMW M140i

Two weeks ago I collected my new BMW M140i. For me it's the first brand new car I've had and since I've wanted a M135i since they were released, the 2 and a half month wait after placing my order was a long slog!

Here it is on collection. The dealer prep wasn't all that bad to be fair and no damage was noted on handover. Photos all taken on my iPhone so not the best quality.





I've not had a chance to give it a full detail due to the weather we've had but this wash used the following products:

PM TFR
BH Auto Foam
Wowo's wheel cleaner (best cleaner I've used)
Gyeon Bathe
Gyeon Wetcoat
Wowo's tyre dressing

I washed the car after a weekend trip away with Mrs Rojer. This gave me the first chance to drive the car elsewhere other than around the local area. I was amazed how it performed. Fuel economy, comfort and power exactly when needed. So far so good. Oh and did I mention the noise of the 6 cylinder engine





This was the first I had used Power Maxed TFR and will do so on each wash from now on.



The alignment of the centre cap will be sorted when the wheels are taken off to be sealed.











So two weeks in I've covered 1000 miles in this car and enjoyed every one. Can't say that I'm enjoying the regular visits to the fuel pumps which is slightly more than I did previously in my old diesel 3 Series!

I plan a full detail as soon as I can and will document it and update this thread.

Awesome car, my brother has just taken delivery of a brand new 120d m-sport which runs the same brake set up as yours.

Very nice cars.

Lovely car fella and a I bet it's a hoot to drive, you say you had a 2 and a half month wait, well try a twelve month wait; that's how long I had to wait for my M2. Enjoy your M140i and many happy years of motoring with it.

Ouch! That's slightly worse than my 2 months. I think I spent most days either onto the BMW Genius or watching YouTube videos!

Yeah it's good fun every time I get in it. I like how you can be a hooligan (not that I would be) or take it easy. Still to fully give it stick but now it's just over 1000 miles I will start opening it up a bit more.
