    The engine is a beauty, I am averaging 46.5 over 8500 miles. ( OBC) It is fast when required smooth and quiet . On 300 mile drives up to Aberdeen can get upto 54 mpg, sure you will love it

    G30 520d vs F10?

    can’t comment on 520 but the 530 engine is fantastic, coming from an M5 it is still quick enough ( most of time )

    Reverse Camera G30

    Had an issue with surround camera’s on a 640. Took a couple trips but dealer sorted it ( did require some new wiring from Germany) Will be keeping an eye on G30 for any repeats

    Speed Limit Display?

    On my F10 it was a camera that provided the speed limit display, not sure on G30/31, I now use Waze which is much better

    Sun Protection Glass - how dark?

    I’ve been dissapointed with the privacy glass on my previous BMs but this time the tint is perfect , IMO it really adds to the look

    530e fuel saving

    Only in eco pro, the dial that shows mpg. When coasting the figure appears at needle spindle

    530e fuel saving

    Using eco pro on my 530d OBC indicates I get over 100 miles freewheeling over a 600 mile journey , pretty impressive and obviously contributes to my return of over 50 mpg for the journey

    Does Running-in really affect my MPGs

    Not noticed much difference, if anything its worse now but think that’s due to low ambient temps lately
