    Time to Change the Company Car

    @Hudds.taz sorry mate, this slipped my mind from left to right, including the general bass and treble settings: Bass +8 -3 -4 -2 -1 +2 +3 +3 +6 Treble fader 2 towards rear. Logic 7 off

    Re Mapping G31/G32

    Any news on this?

    Best courtesy car ever!

    Getting a normal G30 (non Xdrive) to slip away from the back is hard enough, the only time mines lost the back end was on snow - but that doesn't count especially on summer tyres. A 275mm wide tyre does its job really well.

    Newbie questions

    No idea about the torque - sorry. this pad will do: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F232365535192 confirmed to work on mine. pot hole damage can be claimed from local council. Did so on tyres and/or alloys on several occasions for myself and friends/family

    Time to Change the Company Car

    Current one. For my ears, much fuller than the prior settings

    Time to Change the Company Car

    Think i've tweaked it since. Bass and treble turned up more and sound still clear so there is defo an improvement over time. Try this for now (surround turned off) ill post my current one tomorrow
  7. Looks a very decent and honest advert so good luck with the sale. Just to thrown my 2p in, I would invest £20 in a decent leather cleaner (i propose autoglym) and a decent polish (i.e meguirs cutting compound). Giving those seats a good scrub with a leather brush and cleaner will make them pop and will add "value" without cost. A good polish/cutting compound can be surprisingly effective against small scuffs and I think you'd be able to get a few of those off from your bumper

    First service cost

    Mines a 17 plate as well, you can buy the Service Pack all the way up to the first service on the car. Limit is 3 years/36000 whichever is sooner. In your case, it will likely be the miles. I still think you are bound to get 2 service. Even with pure motorway driving, the car will not go more than 18k without a service based on CBS

    First service cost

    Yes they are but you will get a service in before 18k also, it’s millage or two years. So if you have a service in the first year, you are guaranteed another one two years later before expiry of 36 months

    First service cost

    Well with 17k miles a year the OP gets 2 services. Value for money

    First service cost

    And if you Buy them seperatley, you’ll be paying Close to £900 for the first two based on current pricing so how is there no value?
  12. Hello guys, with upcoming BH weekend, I thought it may be a good idea to do a detailing thread as many are bound to give our pride and joys a quick clean or more Post your before and after pics as well as what you use to detail

    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    All the detailing gone to shit! Car serviced last week, service used TFR on it, put it through an automatic wash. All wax is stripped and my wrapped elements peeled off!!! Loads of money wasted on that and all has to be redone I specifically asked them not to touch the car at all, just service.

    First service cost

    £399 for a service pack, best price as depending on millage you could get the first service (oil, filter and micorfilter), 2nd service (all filters) and one last the same as first right before the limit. I just had mine done last week. Really good value imo. Spoiled by the fact that the service washed my car (despite asking not to) using TFR, removed all of my fresh wax and took my vinyl wrapping off using a automatic wash! Fuming, but thats besides the point.

    Protectors For External Camera Lenses

    As they are concaved in shape, doubt there is anything other than plastic film that would be usable

    Initial Screen Display

    Eh? Car will turn on with last screen used unless you do a hard turn off of the idrive

    Which forum does my G32 belong in?

    Well in reality you are right, they share the majority of components, but it’s supposed to be a segment of its own, competing with the Audi A7 and and the Merc CLS Shooting break. I’m sure however that you’ll get responses to list technical stuff on here if you have questions.

    MY 2019 changes - what we know so far

    Very interesting that! Wonder if old models will get the same...
  19. Bear with me and don’t laugh. So car sits on 12k Miles, leather has faded above the volume buttons. I’m OCD about cleanliness and keeping car in top Knick so this is bothering me. Pic does not do it justice, looks far whiter in person and noticeable when driving. I don’t tend to put my thumbs/fingers here and use the grips and 10 and 2. i know steering wheel leather is of the higher quality hence more delicate grain. Anyone has any ideas how to cover this patch up? Car is in for a service next month - I could mention to dealer but I doubt they would entertain this or has someone ever encountered poor quality of leather on certain elements? suggestion? And please, for the love of everything don’t say reject. Any leather specialist out there?

    How long before good discounts?

    G30/31 are now 2.9% Apr across the board from BMW FS. I bought mine at 3.9% Apr. SE will warrant bigger discount over M Sport as they are harder to shift at point of sale and resale

    Steering wheel leather fading?!?

    So this developed over the last couple of weeks to much more visable (picture attached) i asked the service advisor today if they have any recommended traders that do leather repairs. He looked the wheel and said he’ll look into it. Called me later to advise new steering wheel on order and will be fully replaced under warranty. Result

    530e - fully charged range monitor thread

    Never saw the point of that, I have 40GB internet on my phone which I can use as a hot spot too. Whats the point of spending another £132 a year?

    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    Gives the colour a real pop despite being a flat white. Think last picture shows it best
