BMW 140i M-Performance 370BHP / 590Nm Showcase

Teamed up with Driveaholic.nl to shoot some videos of his awesome daily driver, a BMW 140i M-Performance edition with a whopping 370BHP 590Nm (JD Engineering Dynaflow dyno proven, bone stock ECU and no modifications).

Car feels very planted with the wide Michelin Super Sport tyres wrapped around the black BMW 18″ wheels. Suspension and geometry feels good, the power delivery feels very smooth and it never feels dangerous or out of place.

The video shows:

  • small showcase (inc dyno figures)
  • Idle / tickover sound -Revving (pop & bangs)
  • Launch Control (0-60mph / 0-100kmh in 4.6s!)
  • Fast driveby -U-Turn fast cornering (light shake)
  • Driveby – Fast roundabout
  • German Autobahn – Encounter with a Alfa Romeo Giulia 2.2D AWD Veloce

Thanks to Driveaholic.nl for a wonderfull day 🙂

Equipment used:

  • Nikon D5100
  • Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 AF-S DX
  • Rode VideoMic Pro



Volvo S80 2.4T Chrome Side Indicators

Small modification, getting rid of the fried egg look and replacing them with Chrome / Amber versions does the front of the S80 good. Cost a small amount and looks much cleaner.

VW Golf MK3 GTI, Green Hella Style Dual Horns

Saw this on Subaru Impreza’s and wanted to try this on the Golf MK3 platform. Quite happy with the results on the aftermarket grill, but looks even better with the stock grill (which is mounted again by the way). I got them from Aliexpress off course.
