  1. I think it may have been this one which is obviously pretty old now, although I'm sure I recall another one under this topic...

    Swap out the F10....?

    FWIW the XC90 is roughly the same length as the F10/F11 (4950mm vs 4,936 & 4,966 mm). The G30 and G31 are 4,936 & 4,943, respectively. Yes, I am a bit bored.

    Swap out the F10....?

    Again, more than likely because of the mixed messages and often inaccurate information about either fuel being doled out by government and media. Consequently, there has been a sharp rise in CO2 levels during this time. Swings and roundabouts.
  4. I've just phoned them to double-check and it looks like it just takes the updated information a bit of time to propagate through the relevant systems. As mine was only done on Friday this seems entirely reasonable. The dealer's system is up to date, as is the main BMW one. A friend of mine worked on the very government system in question and from what I know of it, that shouldn't be too far behind, either.
  5. Good call. Just checked and … it now says I have an outstanding recall as of today! Let’s see what the actual f… is going on now.
  6. Braved the snow and took mine in for its recall on Friday. Got the all-clear and returned to pick it up just a few short hours later. Job done. The 68 plate 118i they gave me (which they had booked until Monday evening for me, do doubt planning for the worst) wasn't a bad car by any stretch of the imagination but I found it gutless and horribly cramped. I find other cars very difficult to enjoy these days.

    2012 F11 - Warranty Renew or upgrade ?

    Same here. Bought specifically for transportation of one choc lab and one springador too, fwiw.

    Can i get my halo's to be used as DRL's?

    Forgive me if I’m staying the obvious but this is after you’ve got out to physically check, yes? DRL will show nothing on the dash to indicate whether or not they’re working. Switching to the left (auto lights) will only illuminate dipped lights and rears when it is dark enough. In daylight this will just illuminate DRL providing you’ve set them in idrive.

    What do you all get on full tank?

    Aha! So it’s just extrapolation then? You’ve not actually achieved any of those numbers for a whole tank?

    What do you all get on full tank?

    That's pretty much what I would get in my 530d. 40mpg is decent for the 530d IMO. If you're getting that in a diesel, you're almost certain to get nowhere that in the equivalent petrol. One thing seems crystal clear from all this anecdotal evidence just how big an effect differing driving styles, situations and conditions can have on one's fuel consumption. Wait. What car are you actually using in all of these magical fuel consumption figures?

    Farewell and thanks

    I love how they still couldn't bear to actually meet the price. Gits every last one of them.

    Former Police F11 reviewed

    I think they changed "All" to "Sync" on LCI cars.

    What do you all get on full tank?

    That does sound a bit low but I then rarely did a whole tank in town in my 520d and with a mix of motorway/country roads/town I generally got well over 500 miles. Often over 600. My 530d returned not dissimilar numbers - I would aim for low to mid 500s but often got high 400s with pretty spirited driving. I once got over 700 but the journeys that contributed to that figure were memorable only for their abject dullness. My 535d on the same mix of roads is currently getting high 400s/low 500s. I almost never bother with eco-pro as it only serves to regulate my driving style to something wholly unnatural to me and if anything, in my experience it’s only ever returned worse economy than comfort. Hills are basically what fudge your carefully crafted numbers.
  14. I think I like the f10 more than the e39.
