So a year has past since i parted with the N and i have had the pleasure of driving my M140i 340bhp as my daily and i love it.

406bhp! How is the m140i to drive? It was one of the cars I was looking at before I pulled the trigger on the N!

406bhp sounds about right from what i hear.

Considering where i am i don't want to turn this into N bashing thread lol but the 140 is great, having owned both for the same amount of time doing the same daily drive and paid the same amount for the same year i have no idea why i didn't look at them first.

Bet that gives a nice shove in the back.

So you had a tuning box on the car when it went in? Goes to show how much better a full remap is!!
I had it stock for about 2 months then added the box and the tune today, The box really ruins the way the car drives tbh but you ignore it because of the power gain.

Now i have best of booth it actually feels slower would believe as the map it so smooth it just pulls and pulls and pulls..

New set of rubber with some forge alloys and good weather hoping to dip into the sub 4 seconds 0-60 MPH

For an older driver the 140i is a great choice. I just wouldn’t be able to afford the insurance, repairs

Crazy power, does it drop off more compared to stock, see the peak power is at 6k rpm with map instead of 7k stock?
