No it's a good car, well made, less noisy than the 120d, more space, better price but.... without any pleasure when i drove it.

That's why i came back for a BMW and a F30 for having a different car than mys previous BMW.

Hi, folks. Do you know why there is no option to choose Automatic transmission for 120d xDrive model?

p.s. I wrote here because I can't post new thread yet =) Sorry, if something is wrong.

What is your tire size? Do you think 235/35 front and 255/30 will fit without rubbing?

Thanks!!

Did you lower your car? It looks awesome!

I like the Estoril Blue. However, my previous 118d was already blue and my first car was blue too (206 CC).
So, I needed some changes in that aspect.

Not so far, even at the hilly intersections on Hong Kong Island where you have to literally "land" on the perpendicular flat road ahead, coming down from a slope. I think compare to stock M-sport springs, the lowering is only 10-15mm, but it seems to settle a bit after a few drives...

Thank you.
I am a bit surprised that et 45 looks so aggresive specially the rear ones. I might have to look into a ET45 and ET50 combo or go down to 8" + 9"

Gorgeous motor; did you valet your F21 before taking the pics? Those wheels look mint.

Thanks buddy

Yeah, I'm a bit of a clean freak with my cars.

I removed all the wheels and did the following.

Wash wheels with car shampoo.
Tardis - Tar and glue remover
Rinse
Iron X - Iron particle remove
Re-wash
Clay
Rinse
IPA wipe down
Layer of FinishKare 1000p Wax.



Also washed all the arches etc and also treated with tardis/iron x. Waxed any exposed paintwork inside the arch and waxed the callipers. Treated the plastics with g303 protectant.



Makes keeping the wheels/arches much easier now and I'll probably repeat the process in October ready for winter. Haven't had chance to go over the car properly as I'd like due to the bloody weather
