Cool, pre-owned, pre-flogged, over priced and in white. $100k is a deal :P

I'm sure they will find someone that will want their car immediately and like that. Still I reckon it is too expensive

Anyone notice in the commercial area that there is a 135i LSD coming and possibly cams and ECU programming?

i saw that earlier too, but i could not find any further corroboration of that information on the net. i wonder if its all a bit dody when the 1-series interior they show is actually that of a 3 series. that said, a 1 series mechanical LSD would be undeniably the best thing since sliced bread!

Andrew, read through that Dan@United post in the Commerical section, it talks about it. ECU is being offered, they suspect cams also..

can the performance brakes be fitted to models other than the 135i? I'm picking up a 120d Msport in about 3 weeks and not entirely confident that the stock brakes will hold up on Mt. Glorious runs :biggrin:.

I took my R56 Cooper S out there the other week and toasted the brakes lol... car was flashing warning lights at me until I pulled over and let them cool down for a bit.

They've got a car sitting in stock right now, if not sold in the next 24 hours, it'll be going down to Mornington to be sold.

Hope this helps someone.

andrew, just to confirm this unpleasant shocker () it is bmw australia that will not pass it on to us or is it BMW AG that will not be developing those?
