New F40 M135i Modified

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi all,
My new M135i has touched down. Dealer (TRL Berry BMW) has shipped it up to Motech for the folllowing:-

- Remus Exhaust with 102mm Chrome Tips
- Eibach Springs -20F -20R
- Bola Flow Formed FLC 19x235 gloss black wheels with Michelin Pilot 4S
- Maxton kit all lower areas (Rear Diffuser on back order)
- Pipercross Air Filer
- Black Grills and Badges
- Auto ID Gloss Black M4 style mirror caps

I'll be collecting Saturday 21st, can't wait. For now here she is factory fresh. Photo credit to Motech from their Instagram.

The car itself is:-
- M135i Storm Bay Metalic
- Plus Pack with 557M wheels
- Technology Pack

This will be Motech car #002 with the Alpine White being their own #001 development car parked alongside.

Cheers
Chris

That does look good Chris, big fan of those wheels.
So many bits I want to do on mine but will be holding off until things settle down.
Have you been given a date for collection yet?

Thank you. I don't know why, but I wasn't expecting the tyre, wheel combo to look so good. After and M4, M2 & M3 there is just something so comforting about seeing that MPSS tyre wall and tread

Yes Motech finish tomorrow...I might stay off Instagram, not sure, but transport back to TRL Friday and collection 11am Sat 21sr.

100% essential travel by the way

Yep agreed 100% essential, hopefully the inevitable lock down in he UK doesn't spoil your fun too soon.

Look forward to seeing your collection video on TRL's instagram.

I'd love to know how different the car feels with the springs though, with the 19's it does skip about a bit on uneven surfaces. Would be keen to know if the springs sort that.

You couldn't resist looking could you...
Looks good from the front Chris.
Are you changing the diffuser later or leaving it with the standard one?
The Maxton spoiler lip looks good on Motech's own car too.

Thanks again...no couldn't resist, idle thumbs and all that!

Maxton diffuser has some fitment issues currently so (fair play) Motech not happy to fit just yet. They have 10 on back order and I'll pop back down when notified to have it fitted.

Insurance just sorted for Saturday. All credit to LV here in the U.K. modifications all declared and no problem aside from a small uplift for their cover. Good stuff.

Love the little number plate detail, just received the keyring through the post myself from Motech.

Just spotted the number 002 on the wheel caps too. Proper attention to detail

Yes but they're nowhere near as good as Motech's.

Knackered after a long day and returned to a grumpy family staying in

Must say really impressed, excellent package. Haven't even touched the tech on ID7. Sound is pretty nice and it moves quick enough. Corners like on rails Vs an SAV!

Looks great JustChris, how was dealing with TRL after HJs? Contemplating getting our next car from him however it's a bit of a trek! M235i looks rather tempting

M235i looks much much better in the metal. Still challenging from angles.

Tony is great, just no fuss and haggling. Last 2 cars with him now, perfect prep and delighted with the deal. The fact at the last minute I saw this Motech bundle and got car #2 (with #1 being their own dev car) is just the icing on the cake!

PS are you in the HJ area, they are excellent. Nothing bad to say against them, just happy with the TRL approach.
