2018 BMW (F20) M140i SHADOW EDITION - 13,500 MILES

KEY FACTS

  • A superb example of BMW’s rear-wheel-drive hot hatch, in desirable ‘Shadow Edition’ specification with ‘Pro Nav’ and low mileage.
  • Under the bonnet sits a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six, delivering 335bhp and 369lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission with paddle shift.
  • This well cared-for M140i has had only one former keeper, and has been maintained exclusively by BMW main dealers from new.
  • Its first and only MOT test to date was conducted in September 2021, resulting in a clean, first-time pass.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • The ‘Shadow Edition’ features a number of cosmetic enhancements over the standard M140i, including black-finished kidney grills, exhaust finishers, and dark-smoked front and rear lights, as well as an uprated Harman/Kardon sound system, sun protection glass, and cruise control.
  • This example was specified in Black Sapphire metallic over a Black Dakota leather-trimmed interior featuring high-gloss black trim inlays.
  • It rides on its original black-finished 18-inch ‘Style 719M’ double spoked alloy wheels, shod with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres, and housing blue callipers.
  • This M140i’s specification also includes electric mirrors, LED front and rear lights, BMW Professional Navigation with DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB audio interface, and electrically operated heated front seats with two-position driver’s memory.
  • The car is accompanied by the owner’s manual and supplementary owner’s handbook, full BMW service and maintenance records, locking wheel nut, tyre compressor, first aid kit, and two keys.

CONDITION

  • There is no known bodywork damage.
  • The Black Sapphire paintwork is described by the vendor as being in excellent overall condition, and the car has recently been detailed throughout. There are only a handful of minor use-related blemishes commensurate with the age and mileage, all normal and only visible on close inspection. These include a few small stone chips across the bonnet and the driver’s-side of the rear bumper, a mark above the exhaust tips on the passenger-side side of the rear bumper, a very minor indentation and scratching on the roof near the boot, and a light scratch to the middle of the roof as well as a small mark to the passenger-side of the roof above the pillar.
  • The alloy wheels are in very good order, with only a small cut in the sidewall of the passenger-side front tyre and a very minor indentation above the nearside rear wheel arch.
  • Moving inside, the Black Dakota leather-trimmed cabin is in excellent condition, with only a minor scuff to the driver’s seat and two small marks on the top of the steering wheel.
  • There are no known electrical or mechanical faults.
  • The car underwent its first MOT test on 7 September 2021 at 13,231 miles, resulting in a clean, first-time pass.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • This M140i’s most recent routine maintenance was carried out in May 2021 at 11,928 miles, when BMW Park Royal performed a regular service, including a brake fluid change.
  • Prior to this, in June 2020 at 8,483 miles, BMW Battersea performed an engine oil and filter change as well as replacement of the microfilter.
  • Previously, in January 2020 at 5,413 miles, BMW Fairfield Leigh-on-Sea performed a pre-purchase maintenance check, which produced a Vehicle Health Check Report with no advisories.
  • In August 2021 at 12,543 miles, BMW Park Royal addressed an outstanding recall relating to a DME control unit, and replaced the stereo unit under warranty.
  • The front alloy wheels were refurbished in September 2021.
  • The owner states that the next service will be an engine oil service, which will be due in 13,000 miles or June 2022 – whichever comes sooner.

SUMMARY

This M140i Shadow Edition is an excellent, low-mileage example of BMW’s sought-after performance hero. Finished in a sleek black-on-black colour scheme, this hot hatch pairs a powerful turbocharged straight-six with a thrilling rear-wheel-drive chassis to create a true driver’s car. In a time where smaller capacity engines and front- or all-wheel drive are becoming commonplace among hot hatches, the BMW M140i stands apart from the crowd, and this highly specified example promises to be an exciting and accomplished companion for many more miles to come.
