BMW F40 M135i - video review

Thanks to BMW Park Lane we got the chance to spend some time with the new F40 M135i xDrive and see if BMW have completely lost the plot or if it's just a slight pivot in direction.

Very nice videos! Keep up the good work.
I am not the biggest fan of the front, yet I like the new style of the grill.
The back looks really nice, and the interior looks a bit better than the previous one, and to me it seems like an attempt to compete with the interior of the new A-class from Mercedes.
- In general, I actually quite like it.

Thank you. Glad you are enjoying them.

Yes the front takes some getting used to but over all its a nice car for the segment.

racechip guys said there is not a ton of meat left on the bone so to speak, but did mention safe gains of ~30hp and 50ish tq, which means its one stout 4 banger.

Based on our experience +30 BHP and +50 lb.ft torque is probably safe just with a tune.

Adding a Downpipe and Eventuri would allow for another 20bhp at least.
