    Specification Advice

    I have Med Blue, ivory and the grey wood which goes really well with the rest of the car. Piano black IMHO would mark to easily. Very happy with my choice of the grey wood though.

    Time to Change the Company Car

    Try once a week at weekends. Usually a few hours but don’t go as far a removing the wheels

    No confidence at high speed

    No xdrive just pure rwd. It is a wander rather than a shimmy. Not confident at high speed as always seen to have to put in corrective inputs.

    No confidence at high speed

    I find the steering to light even in sport mode. I’d rather it was heavier. At speed it does feel a little like a boat on uneven surfaces and now I wish I’d have gone for the damper control option to see if that would sort it. However, I bloody love this car.

    No need then to reject the vehicle for a refund! Did I just type that out aloud ?

    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
