Joined up in Nov but not go round to saying hello until now.
Bought my 2014 reflex silver R in November, replacing my stolen M135i. Had the BMW for over 3 years and missed a manual box, however the fart of the DSG won me over and the hunt was on for a blue DSG 5 door within budget..........fast forward a few weeks and I took delivery of a Reflex silver manual equipped car, go figure.
Having had the car little over a month I am enjoying being back in a manual however the clutch delay valve will definitely be getting sorted soon as I am struggling in lower gears for a smooth shift or fast shifts at the top end, and the threat of a slipping clutch on low mileage cars made my ar*e twitch.
Bit of searching on the site had me worrying I had done the wrong thing and should try and source a DSG especially as I plan on some light modifying.
Other than that I am loving the car, the extra grip over the BMW in anything other than dry conditions is excellent and even though its a little contrived the noise in race mode did make me laugh on the test drive.
