    Time to Change the Company Car

    My DAB was shocking at the weekend, but that seemed to be because I had a charger plugged into the 12v in the boot, it's been fine since I removed that.

    Comfort seat question

    By proper leather, I mean nappa. It's much softer/smoother and doesn't have the artificial grain that the dakota leather does. I think it makes the world of difference to the car, some agree some don't. Just pop along to your local dealership and sit in a 7 series, pretty sure they all have the same comfort seats and nappa as standard. If you look at this link, this car has got the comfort seats with nappa leather. https://www.bmwblog.com/2016/10/12/2017-bmw-g30-5-series-design-interior/

    Comfort seat question

    Totally different, seat is wider with no thigh bolsters. Backrest is in two pieces, so top can be tilted relative to bottom section. I think the sports seats look better. Fitting comfort seats was the only way that I could get proper leather which is the main reason that I went for them.

    I’ll have to have another play, I found all the electronic adjustments, but not the manual push/pull ones. Cheers.

    What’s the headrest adjustment? Only had the car for a year and havent found one yet.

    Adblue refill

    Thats why it needed to be processed on-board the vehicle

    Adblue refill

    When these systems were first developed for HD vehicles there were suggestions that neat urine could be processed onboard the vehicle.

    Adblue refill

    I think there’s a post SCR NOx sensor, so I think filling up with water will be limp home, a trip to a dealership and an invalidated warranty.

    It’s not a con on EU6d cars, if you didn’t have SCR diesels would be as lethargic as they were in the early 80s.

  11. Pretty sure I read a thread on here where someone got apple play retrofitted via USB.

    Speed Limit Info Group Buy

    Thanks for the translation, my old E60 had lane departure on it (as standard equipment), quite liked it but not worth a new steering wheel
  13. It’s not, it’s just louder.

    Does that mean that road sign recognition and lane departure warning could be coded too? I’d quite like to get those done. Unless road sign is just speed.
  15. I've got standard LEDs on mine and they're absolutely fine, leagues better than the adaptive xenon on my e60. The icon lights are meant to be incredible from what people say, I probably should have tried them before ordering but I didn't even bother with a test drive as I knew another 5 series would be fine.
