    Drivetrain Fault

    Fault is an Exhaust gas differential sensor, new part being fitted in the morning, road test and should be back. Here’s hoping, quite like the 3 Series but the 2.0 diesel certainly sounds loud in these .

    Insurance on 520d

    That’s pretty much the same price as I got under the same circumstances, again the same when I was considering the G30 for a while.

    Drivetrain Fault

    Still not heard anything, have been put into a 3 Series not a 5 but it works. Luckily enough dropping the car to my local dealer yesterday (never usually use them), I used to work with the Service Advisor so I’ll be going there now knowing things should be done right .

    Insurance on 520d

    I know how it feels, I’m 24, held licence since 2011, have 3 years no claims (no accidents, just company cars), and still for a 2016 520d have quotes of about £880. Insurance is pretty high on the F10 I believe. I live in a reasonably low risk area too.

    Exhaust gas pressure sensor fault, currently en route to BMW.

    Drivetrain Fault

    Chap said an recent EGR replacement means nothing, could quite easily have gone again. Inspiring

    Drivetrain Fault

    Afternoon all, Weird one today, driving around done a fair few miles drivetrain fault message popped up a few times although has since disappeared although car feels extremely jerky. 2016 520d recently had an EGR replacement so can’t see that being an issue. Odd that the drivetrain fault has come and gone away twice and now seems nowhere to be seen. BMW assist in their way.

    Front seats

    Having had an SE F10 with standard seats on a company car a few years back I always found those really comfy. Totally agree the sports seats are nowhere near as comfy as the SE ones.

    F10 DAB issues.

    I’ll have to take it out and see how it goes, I’d did think that’s the only thing that’s changed. What do I value more DAB or a rear camera .

    F10 DAB issues.

    Evening all, Anyone else having any issues with DAB? Particularly in the south east area. My F10 seems to have developed an issue of losing DAB signal every 10-15 seconds no matter which station. A friend of mine has a 2017 1 Series that seems to be fine. I’m wondering if my rear dash cam is maybe interfering with something? Albeit I don’t see why it should? Car is a 2016 (66) if that makes a difference? Many thanks.

    G30 520d vs F10?

    To be honest we did considering changing the F10 for an M140i, however we ended up valuing the extra space and the comfort when travelling. Although there’s still a fair few occasions when you sit there and think, if I was in a M140i right now… they’re a cracking car and not exactly terrible in fuel if you stick to the speed limits.

    Changing Jobs - new car?

    I wouldn’t worry overly much about DPF issues, so long as it gets a long-ish run every other week or so I should imagine you’ll be ok. As to whether I’d be tempted by a 540i though, most definitely!

    G30 520d vs F10?

    True, I suppose an M240i puts plenty of smiles on your face. I know from having a couple of weeks in an M140i such a cracking car.

    G30 520d vs F10?

    True, that is for a base spec M Sport albeit as said they’re generous on the G30 compared to the F10. That’s another thing I was thinking, i-Drive 7 is bound to find its way into a G30 pretty soon. I said when I got the F10 I’ll probably be perfectly timed for an LCI G30. Just see at the moment with WLTP looming from September, the deals are going to be better now than they’re going to be for a long time. (On this though the G30 is WLTP compliant though no? So my point my be completely invalid ) Exactly I would want as a minimum M Sport Plus & Comfort pack, which on a 0% APR is around £21 per £1,000 which then pushes it to what I deem silly amounts of money. I keep seeing S90’s about and think what a cracking looking car, and the interior is stunning. However I know full well I’d regret it every time I got into a BMW, had a brief spell with an Audi and had exactly that.

    G30 520d vs F10?

    Further to that, I know of a couple of BMW dealers who promote VT to get people into another car. It certainly doesn’t put a black mark on your credit rating as said, it will put a note on your file with BMW FS, however if they’re getting another unit out of it, I can’t see them minding that much.
