Thank you for confirming that for me Spudw!

that's because i'm in singapore...

really no complain for me - it's based on euro 125M specs - the engine is tuned down version of 130/128 - only slightly off the 128 marks... bmw puts 0-60 at 6.4 (haven't tested it - still break-in) and the torque is still plentyful at low rpms. plus with m aero + m suspension + sport seats&steering wheel, looks and handling are great... the only thing i feel lacking is the 135 wheels.... 125's 17"ok - but nowhere near as muscular as as 135 OEM 18" (264?) or as sophisticated as my personal fav 18" (261). once i'm sure there's no production defects, will consider ECU remap to boost it to 130 territory (270hp/315NM)

But then my previous car is a hybrid, so take my joyful thrills :thumbup:with grain of salt

i'd still pick 135 anyday if i'm in US but it's not yet available here plus it's an overkill for a place with max speed limit of 90 kmh (~55mph?), some highways even with 70kmh, and yet you can circle the country in 40min... :iono:

BMAN6074: awesome pic!!!

yes i do appreciate it...

and for the nitrogen.... alot of new dealers are using nitrogen as an option when u get your vehicle serviced. i have it in my frontier right now. it rides smoother, keep more consitant pressure, if u get a nail it leaks out slower, there no moisture in your tires any more, the only way for nitrogen to get in your tires is at -40 degrees. the machine we have at work is cool. it does all 4 tires at once, it drains all the air out then fills half way with nitrogen, drains again and the fills to needed psi

yes, i vote that for that too! mods please consider doing this every so often and perhaps the best 10-20 from each round could go in a special, comment-free gallery?!

I agree...with so many people with cars on the way, a frequent (maybe every couple of months) contest would be a nice way for more people to get in on the action. I also like the idea of a comment free gallery...just pictures of our nice cars.

Great pictures. White is so pretty. Black always looks great but is too hard to look good. Silver is really nice also. Great sticky.
