    Looking to get a g30/31, driving assistant?

    Yeah it’s very good...one of those things you think you won’t miss that much when you don’t spec it, and then wish you had every day (stupid me!).

    Joining the G30 Club (Hopefully)

    This^^ Someone at BMW should be shot for how bad the standard lights are.

    If you complain about BMW options

    @sjak92 is yours just running the standard fit drivers assistance system or have you optioned driving asssitant plus? Mine is just standard and don’t seem to get any erroneous warnings. Amazing the bullsh1t people try to tell you just to palm you off...clearly there’s a fault somewhere.

    If you complain about BMW options

    I’d say there’s something wrong with your system then - I had the VAG equivalent fitted to my previous Skoda Superb and it worked faultlessly for 2 years, and actually totally saved me from a rear end on the A40 when I wasn’t concentrating after a sh1te day at work. Never once did it malfunction like you’ve said above. You’ve got a warranty, so best get it checked out mate.

    I think given where safety is going, Driving assistant plus should be standard across the range...you get that on a middle spec Golf!

    How do I stop the navigation? No, really

    Press the speech button on the steering wheel, then say “cancel navigation”. Quickest and easiest way.

    Time to Change the Company Car

    Yep pretty much - expect the new drivers display layout like on the new 3 / Z4 etc, latest iDrive software, some other minor cosmetic tweaks inside and that’s about it.

    @sjak92 Yeah, JB4’s are really popular in the BMW & VW tuning world, and get some really good results. @SuperDave From the back I’d agree, but I think it does look a lot more menacing from the front, especially in the right colour. If it was my money going on that sort of car, it would be the Alpina B5, which is probably even more understated...but that’s half the fun I think!

    I miss this SO much, and adaptive lane assist - my previous car had both and I wish I still had them. Will be on the next car I order for sure.

    100% agree with this. I said the same about the M850i - 530hp (and I can’t remeber how much torque), kind of renders the forthcoming M8 a bit pointless for every day road use. 98% of the time the “M-lite” will be all the car you’d ever want. I wonder if Alpina will have their way with the 8...now that would be something!

    All subjective really...beauty is in the eye of the beholder at the end of the day. I like the new X5, but the LCI 7 looks a bit over the top for me.

    Hahahahaha this is absolutely brilliant!

    Contenders for me are going to be: G20 3 series (if I stick with BMW) Volvo S60 or S90 VW Arteon A5 Sportback Not going to be ordering for another 2 years though, so my mind may change between now and then!

    New G31 arrival

    Lovely car - congrats! How does the performance feel compared with the 335d out of interest?
  15. Back2Beemer

    Is my car G30 or G31

    I’m not sure on the 6GT...it’s miles ahead of the old 5GT, which was hideous, but there’s still something wrong with it proportionally I think. I’d rather have a well-spec’d G31 if given the choice I think, but I’m in no need for an estate so I’ll still with the saloon option
