Nice find. While I'm not a fan of Moto-Man's reviews, I think he did a decent job this time.

The comments are funny, though. So much hate, mostly by people that couldn't even afford the car. Like a friend of mine says the X4 looks fugly, yet he drives a Nissan Juke.

There is a very good review/testdrive done by Autocar on their homepage. Good both because it is comprehensive, but also for giving high marks for M40i

Obviously test was arranged by german engineers, since they described the shortcomings of the 35i, and what has been done to rectify them. I recognise some of the shortcomings on my vehicle- before lowering

The bad news is that it will not be brought to the UK.

Agreed don't like Motoman's review, he's not very well versed in what BMW is doing... He's def a Mercedes (great reviewer) though.

Common this reviewer has no idea how eco-pro mode works! Of course if you go full throttle you will have the same effect as driving in comfort mode...

BMWblog, claims that part of exhaust sound is from speakers. We need a verdict, when you get your vehicles - my Klappen has not .

We need a verdict on the Klappen too lol, all we hear is awesome but no proof. And that one video shows is in an area where the sound is amplified.

The video on youtube for the M40i exhaust sound shows is not speakers, the reviewers as well. the F25/F26 doesn't have the ActiveSound as much as other newer cars from my experience.

ROBNYC, my reading is this:
-very much the same sound in my legal position: Sport - although my endpipes are nicer
-in Track position Klappen outperforms M40i, with soundlevel and characteristic, because M40i need to be street legal. Check the Russian car.

Don't take me wrong - I would very much like to have a M40i -especially after the very good review in AUTOCAR - but no-way I am going to put up that money since I have a vehicle which I am happy with - because of Klappen and H&R.

The car looked amazing!!! Soo happy with the LBB and I normally lean toward more conservative colours like my current 335 in mineral grey.

But because my dealer put a rush on my car, the trucking company made sure to load it in first.... But first in last out...
so by the time they actually unloaded the car in the afternoon, they had no time to prep it to go for a short test drive.

They brought it inside the service area, but because of the lack of room, the lighting and only having my cell to take pics, which would have required more room to take decent pics, my pics suck.

The salesman even turned the engine on and revved it a bit, but I didn't think to ask him to put it in sport mode... I filmed it but again.... Bad quality IMHO.

I'll post the pica and vid when I get to work.
