New car today

I had my new car delivered today, a BMW M140i Shadow Edition. I've only done 20 miles so far but I can't stop smiling. It's a bloody animal. I blame my 14 year old son, he talked me into it lol.

Had my M140i for almost a year now. You're right its an animal!
Went to the dealers to look at a sensible 3 series touring and couldn't resist.

What are the real world running costs like ?





I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.

I'm averaging 26mpg.

About 60% around town, and I keep pressing the sport button.

Not too bad compared to the old X5 at 19mpg!

Had ours sconce end of November last year. Could not resist the crazed discount and 0% they through at us

We average 23mpg always driven in either sport or sport plus for that extra sharpness and fun, servicing looks no more that any other car and insurance is very reasonable given the performance

Had the MPE fitted at delivery and itís mint, nice sound not too intrusive lots of burbling

It is a monster thatís for sure

Going to have the under body brace from the M135i fitted, canít work out why they removed it from the m140i esp as the rear springs are so much stiffer
