    Time to Change the Company Car

    I suspect my next car (another 3 years or so) won’t be another 5 series. Not because of problems etc, on the contrary, I love the car. My problem is that my car is a company lease car and the company has implemented a co2/km limit on all new car and it decreases on an annual basis. so much so that when I next get to renew, my car will have to be under 90. I know there is the 530e but on our scheme it’s simply too expensive.

    Retuning DAB

    So did I, however a load of stations are currently displaying retune and have a retuning message being played. When I press the option button, retune is greyed out so I can’t select it.

    Text message on display

    It works on mine, for text/iMessages on,y. Not WhatsApp. just into your phones Bluetooth settings for the connection to your car and ensure it allows notifications.

    At the minute mine gets a decent (circa 1 hour) wash every couple of weeks. Looks fantastic once it’s clean but doesn’t last very long unfortunately.

    Strangely, i dont have any height adjustment control for the headlights. I assume this is because they "self level" like bi-xenon's do.
