    Real world mpg and range

    My dad had a 520i back in 1985. 6 cylinders, 2litres. 130 bhp. Love the name... 520i How you pleased with performance? As someone said, no one review on magazine whether the 530i is worth the difference. .. they all want to take the M5 back home instead. There are more reviews of M5 than potential buyers.

    black, ALU or chrome

    Quick one. The roof bar are ALU. When you specify ALU for the windows, does it make the chrome bit on door handle and the ugly wing vent ALU too or do they stay chrome? I know the wing vent goes black if black is specified. Spec a g31 is difficult and BMW should offer training on YouTube Mind you, their sales guys could also do with some training

    Wireless Phone Charging

    Hired a fiesta this week. Brand new from avis... Anyway, it had wireless charging. Cleverly put in where you naturally throw your phone as you get in. Shames BMW for asking 500 quid for a badly designed one!

    New 520D - max £40k

    This is political madness at his best. No one understand exactly. I contacted the genius on BMW configurator. After 30 Mns contacting his manager, he could not confirm exactly. Mind you... This is nothing compared the pension tax relief rules.... The poeple who dream these rules should be shot.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    What colour is that? Very nice
  6. Typical BMW. Great cars but let down by greediness to make more and more and more money.. as much as possible. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/industry/bmw-electrical-fault-was-cause-fatal-car-accident-inquest-claims

    Diesel - full tank range thread

    Fantastic... 900mi per tank is more exciting to me than a 0-60 in 5s instead of ,7.5s. this is great and means I could do london-nice with no refill.

    530e - fully charged range monitor thread

    Unless you use the air con. Heat is not good for batteries anyway. In fact, best is 20 degrees. Battery manufacturers tend to quote performance at 20 degrees. UK summers are probably ideal.

    E60 radio, terrible reception.

    Mine has always been awful on FM from day 1. It has Dan and been on dab since day 1. I find the radio so unintuitive to use too I never understood if it was because I do not understand it... Weak point of the E60.. I hope the guy who designed that interface and the heating one has retired by now..

    Would be interesting to hear from the 530i owners.

    Exhaust Options - F11 535d

    Yep. Mine is 155,000 miles and still on original dpf. But with dpf, it is not if but when problems will occur... Unlikely to remove, more likely to get it professional cleaned. But still. I have been wondering for years if all the dpf removed cars are effectively insured.
