  1. I received a recall notice for my LCI 63 plate 535d just before Christmas.

    Poor mpg 530d

    I had an E61 530d that was mainly driven by the wife, so mainly town driving and school runs etc. It never fell below 30 mpg according to the OBC. I did change the thermostats when I bought it and this seemed to help with the mpg. The F10 535d i have now is sitting at around 26mpg for the same type of driving.

    Sidewall damage on runflat tyre

    I am tempted to do just that. I was thinking of swapping out both fronts for non runflats, and selling the good runflat to recoup a few quid, and then changing the rears when they wear down.

    Sidewall damage on runflat tyre

    I did hit a kinda big pothole last Saturday at the start of my holiday in Southern Ireland. It freaks me out to think I may have been driving around with this for the past week with my family on board. By the way I think the black mark is from the tyre dress my local car wash applied this morning. The tyre only has a few thousand miles on it too. The joys of motoring
  5. I've just noticed a rip in the sidewall of my Goodyear excellence runflat tyre. Obviously the tyre is toast, but I'm wondering what could have caused it? There is no visible damage to the rim. Any ideas?

    Thinking on selling E60 535D

    I recently sold my E61 530d and to be honest I've never found it so hard to shift a car in all my years of motoring. It would seem what with all the talk of diesel being the devils fuel there is little or no interest in big, expensive to run diesel cars. More and more people seem to be going down the lease or PCP route so they know exactly what any given car will cost them over a certain period of time, and to be honest I think I will be using this option for my next car purchase. You might get lucky and find someone who wants the particular car you have for sale, but I would say be prepared to wait quite a while. Failing that if you still like the car just drive it and enjoy it.

    BMW F10 rear floor mats

    Which probably explains why the dealer I bought the car off shoved 2 in that quite obviously do not fit the car. Thanks Phil.

    New car questions?

    On my F10 its one press of the stop button, with foot still on the brake pedal, to switch off engine but all systems remain on. Then take foot off brake pedal and press stop button again to switch off systems. Or as stated above all systems will shut down when you lock the car.
