    No confidence at high speed

    I’ve got a G30 530d M Sport with the normal M Sport set up. 20’s with correct tyre pressures. I think mine isn’t as good at speed as my old F10. Lots of lateral movement. Next time it’s at the dealers I’m going to ask them to check it out.

    Paint query

    Not as of yet. Going to stalk around some corporate car parks and look for a later car to compare. My buddy who knows his onions when it comes to paint was of the opinion the speed and heat level when painted wasn’t correct. He was surprised to see this type of quality from BMW. I’ll let you know what the dealers say.

    Paint query

    I’ve got Med Blue, early 2017 car. Anyone got an issue with the paint work? Mine has orange peel all over it. Not what I’d expect for a £60k car. Had a really good paint guy cast an eye over it and he thought it was a sh.t job. Next to my daughters 53 plate Micra, her paint looks flawless !!

    Newbie questions

    No loss of pressure just a big egg in the side wall of the tyre. Dont recall hitting a pot hole but that’s what my friendly main stealer told me must have happened.

    Newbie questions

    Hit a pothole with my 20’s on G30 and got an egg in the side wall. About £370 for a new tyre. Wouldn’t mind but I didn’t even know I’d done it, it was only seen during a morning walk round prior to a long drive. Guys at dealers said these are prone to issues. Good luck and welcome to the site. Cheers, Andy

    Sun Roof - Refund Post - It Has Gone.....

    Gutted lads. I’m now going to have to work during the week rather than watch the thread. Did I mention I’ve got a problem with my pano roof? Dealers taking my car back and getting a refund. Just thought I should mention it in case there was any interest on the forum. Night night

    Reverse Camera G30

    Please don't, I'm loving all this. Trying to work but the notifications just get better and better. I'm wondering if Xtrail is confused by his vehicles actual manufacturer.......could it be a Nissan Xtrail he bought ?? The guy is full of sh.t, I doubt he even owns a BMW. Probably some 14 year old kid sat in his bedroom with nothing to do. I'm usually a nice guy but this chap is a £42k wan£$r.

    Time to Change the Company Car

    I'm loving all this, who's got what, do you have the button. I wonder if the later cars with comfort access did get the electric boot close. My 4 door is now a year old so one of the early models. Just been on the BMW site and it still shows comfort access as opening and closing automatically yet it also allowed me to spec on the conf screen electric boot operation. Even now the site still conflicts ??
