    Piper's E61 520d Touring

    Its only on 53k at the min. But I reckon I might only keep the car for another year. Too many things about the F11 don’t make it as ‘good’ a car as it is portrayed to be........

    Bugger, hope the rebuild isn’t going to be too hard on the wallet! I have an N47 in my F11. Does cause my some concern I have to say.........

    Kit's E34 535i

    Looks brilliant with the new suspension. Has a really nice stance especially with 5e style 32s on it.
  4. That looks awesome Dan same colour as my old touring. Looking at the condition of these jap imports, makes me want another E39!
  5. 52k mile service and it passed its MOT yesterday with no advisories have to say changing the fuel filter was a pain in ass!
  6. ^^^ my brother had one of these! E61 520d SE 6spd manual in black 07 plate LCI with the 163bhp engine. Overall pretty reliable other than the fact the dpf kept getting clogged and wasn’t regenerating properly despite the stats being ok and it being driven long journeys etc. Only way to get it to regen was to use inpa while it was being driven and that would clear the limp mode for a while. Always came back though. Clutch only lasted about 100k miles. His mpg was never near the hig 50s though mid to high 40s mostly and low 50s on his France tips fully loaded. That’s the one thing he felt let it down, although he did have a an A4 130pd tdi sport previous to the e61 and that was tremendous on fuel.

    520d touring

    No they don’t hence why you have run flats which in theory should get you home or at least to a tyre fitter garage.m

    Only time I have seen cars clamped in Scotland is by the DVLA for cars without any road tax being paid. Bit odd with such a new car though. Usually it is older cars that you see clamped.
  10. Just checked my reg there and it states it is due for the egr recall as well. So will contact Harry Fairbairn in Giffnock tomorrow as it’s booked in for an mot and a service as part of the service plan I got with the car from AC.

    What do you all get on full tank?

    Having plenty left over assumed range and actual range driving are two very different things....... so my response is the classic KB https://goo.gl/images/o6aZnd

    What do you all get on full tank?

    I never believe the range it has left, hence why I have yet to get near 700 miles out of a tank. Over the last 11k miles the real avg is 45.5 mpg. I think 630 miles is the best total I have achieved on a full tank.

    What do you all get on full tank?

    Usually 500-550 miles mixed driving with comfort and sport mode use. And around 600 ish motorway in comfort mode. I have read of people getting 700 miles with the n47 and autobox, but although I can easily show that as a potential range. Getting near it seems a bit of a falacy unless you live somewhere flat with a lot of tailwinds neither of which we have in Scotland
