The Australia tax will be high on this one. For furriners, the Australia tax is basically the doubling of MRSP for luxury vehicles, combination of taxes and ...because they fucking can.

Sadly outdated tech and interior in the X-es though.

So today I thought I'd take some photos of the underside/engine and I was quite surprised to see the reinforcements added..

I also had the first proper drive today. In sports mode I could feel the car pulling me into the corners. I don't know what bmw have done with the electronics but I could push harder in sport mode than sports plus mode.

Garage List
Its the brake assisted cornering, my old focus ST had it and it made a sizeable difference, but in the end when you are really pushing it, you can feel the artificialness of it working, on track it would overheat my brakes and accelerated brake wear, also caused me to be inconsistent since it never behaved 100% exactly the same through the same corner. In the end I just turned it off and drove with no aids, it did affect the overall apex speed slightly, but the consistency and assurance that the electronics weren't intervening made it much more enjoyable as I could start trusting the car more and made the car much more lively.

knali8 your M135i looks good in Red, it wasn't a colour I considered when i bought mine but that was because I hadn't seen one before.
In some pictures it almost looks like a chrome red wrap, really stands out

Great choice, I was torn between MR and SB but as I was keeping the cloth interior felt I needed a blue exterior.

Enjoy!
