Thank you to @jsnmotors
for organizing the test drive and helping me come closer to deciding on my next car...
This is a 2018 M140i Shadow Line...
This super Hothatch is powered by BMW’s B58 engine which is an inline 6-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which pushes out a breath-taking 250kw, 500nm of torque with a very impressive 0-100 in 4.6 seconds.
This model had a 8-Speed steptronic sports transmission.
First off the exhaust note is brilliant, coming from a stock system, it definitely isn’t a quiet car, but with the MPerformance Exhaust system or AC Schnitzer it’s a bit more enjoyable 👀
In Eco Pro & comfort the vehicle feels like any other BMW, very comfortable, soft suspension, light steering and overall easy for in town driving... When Sports + is activated, the car turns into a tail happy street eater, with extremely responsive acceleration, you can’t help but be whipped back into your seats and have a wide smile on your face.
I really fell in love with the M140i... the engine and handling alone is a major winning factor... My only complaint is that the car itself needs a sense of uniqueness, besides the screaming engine, the car looks bland and needs a more aggressive look which can be easily done through MPerformance Approved kits, AC Schnitzer Kits & Maxton kits which I personally would recommend to anyone who wants or has a 1 series.
My end comment, amazing vehicle which any petrol head would enjoy driving ! •
