    19 plate headlights

    Thanks for the reply. It seams stupid that BMW bring out an new model with inferior lights in comparison to the standard lights on the previous one!

    19 plate headlights

    Are the standard lights on the G30/31 a lower standard than the standard xenon lights on my 65plate F11 then?

    G31 520d

    I definitely prefer the feel and action of the indicator and wiper stalks on my F11 than the G30 loaners I've had

    540i Xdrive Touring

    I'd be lucky to get mid 30s out of my 520d on those sort of short trips and definitely low 30s on my wife 118i. I'm going to have to try and blag a 48 hour test drive of a 540i It only works out about £15/week more expensive to run for 15k miles per year!! Not bad for a 300+bhp car and much more fun!

    Hows the town MPG?
  8. It's down to date of manufacture, road tax class and euro emissions category. September 2013 was when Bmw started making the 5 series euro6 compliant. Then because so many manufacturers were getting their cars into the £0 and £30 tax bracket the government started messing with road tax pricing because they wasn't getting enough revenue!

    All weather / winter tyres

    They are run flats, so they're not going to be the lightest tyre. The grip had been great in the wet, cold, and snow. I have had no problems with them for grip throughout the summer either. I paid £250 a pair from eBay tyre suppliers.

    Matrix Sign - Freight to EU

    It is a complete Government ploy. If it all goes to rats Sh*t on 1 November they can now blame the public for not being organised because they have warned you!
