I really wish BMW would bring the 135 to the US. This thing is stunning. I'd buy 2 of them.

Haha if only. Seems BMW is set on SAV for NA still but I did think it was odd to offer the 2 Series Gran Coupe and not the 1er.

We almost have 2 here,. F39 X2 in Alpine White to partner the F40 Storm Bay. I'll get a better shot soon for those that say they look the same. Similar profile side on but different sizes.

Nice Chris! Lovely weather for a drive. Ignoring the chaos of course. Car and interior is real class.

TRL is great. Met him at tunbridge wells.

ps do you know you are on the front page?

I see a theme here guys. It's a nice little package with a few changes.

Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks Dazza, yes saw it hitting front page, one of a kind car at the moment and either the Nardo M340i TRL had sold 2 cars on the front page. Crazy times

Looks great Chris. Good choice of upgrades, well suited to the car/ colour scheme.

I love the Alcantara interior, I'd choose it over Dakota every time.

Ugh. BMW needs to bring this to the US. We get the 3GT and 5GT but something as amazing as this hatch doesn't make business sense? All they need to do is look at how many GTI's and Golf R's VW sells to know there is demand for it.


OP- Great car. Well done.

Thank you. On lockdown here frustrating not to drive it. As per a few posts back, car is made at Leipzig, same and 2 series Gran Coupe but one is for the US and one is not. Hmmm.

Enjoy it! I'm liking the colour, not really seen one like that before.

I've heard good things about TRL. Did you find he is the guy to go to for the best deals on a BMW?

Chris, this looks so good.
I need to get mine down to Motech once things get back to normality and get some mods priced up.

Hi Chris.

Car looking great and have been following progress through Motech. I was pretty much set on getting the Remus until I picked my car up 2 weeks ago and similar to yours the pops and bangs have disappeared!

How has this effected the Remus - do you have any more videos / sound clips you could post / send as Mike only has the short ones on Youtube.

Cheers
