    Spotify on Android

    I gave up on android and just bought an old iPhone for the car too.
  2. Mine work okay to, they certainly have the feel of a cheap radio, but if I press them in the right place they do what they're meant to.

    ACC is probably the only option on my car that I would insist on having in the future.

    I wouldn't worry, that's only 2 gallons a day. I imagine quite a few people bought 540s thinking that there would never be a 550, so I imagine that there'll be a few floating about.

    Now that's more interesting, now why they couldn't have done this 15 months ago? I would have got one of those instead of the 540.

    Excluding lexus, the other brands don't look weird with huge grills, the BMWs do - hence the grumbling. People will still buy them, plenty of people bought the first E60s and they were even uglier (most owners seemed to agree).

    I saw and X5 this afternoon, and thought it looked a bit odd. However, this one had a matt silver grill which looks a lot better than chrome or the aftermarket black grills that you see fitted.

    A little change

    I’m not sure I’d even noticed them on my car until someone on here pointed them out. It seems an odd design feature, but I don’t find it as annoying as the cut-outs behind the front wheels.

    This is my second 5 series, not sure I'd have a 3rd one, this one is fine - but other than the interior I find it difficult to defend the fact that it was double the list price of a hyundai i40, if not more. No idea what I'd change it for though.

    Spotify on Android

    Mine works(ish) using the normal drive control, nothing from the thumb control on the steering wheel though. The IOS version is a fraction better than the Android one nowadays, the connected-drive one that you have to pay for is actually really good - I'm just not sure it's worth £160/year.

    530i, 540i or 530d

    Yup, tried all that with and without logic 7, if anything I find it sounds a bit fuller with the logic 7 on. But given the spec’ing choice again, if it came down to HK speakers or Icon lights, I’d go with the lights (and I don’t find the standard ones to be bad)

    No, it’s what you get from implementing a selected catalytic reduction system and dosing it properly, just as heavy-duty trucks have been doing for over a decade. It’s worth remembering that Diesel cars have been called ultra-clean previously, it just wasn’t true then. The whole industry hit a bottleneck last year when the new tests became mandatory, and many more vehicle configurations needed to be tested. This is really what I meant by poor planning.

    They’re not as well planned as you’d think, must oems were caught out last year.

    Yup, the HK system just sounds louder to me.

    They use quite a lot more as the SCR has to be used properly over the full speed/load range, rather than the earlier cars that were homologated over the lower speed and load NEDC drive cycle.
