    520d/530d conundrum.

    My 530 has covered 19k with an average of 46.9 ( obc) mixed driving. i came from an M5 so wanted the bigger engine. Its a dream , quick, quiet , smooth and economical . Get the 530 you will not be disappointed.

    On my regular 600 mile round trip to Aberdeen in ECO Pro the OBC tells me I freewheel for about 140 miles, must have an impact on economy

    Never managed an online update in 2 years , I do a manual update so I know I always have upto date version, but its still way out of date,

    G30 520d vs F10?

    can’t comment on 520 but the 530 engine is fantastic, coming from an M5 it is still quick enough ( most of time )

    Reverse Camera G30

    Had an issue with surround camera’s on a 640. Took a couple trips but dealer sorted it ( did require some new wiring from Germany) Will be keeping an eye on G30 for any repeats
