    Appreciating Asset?

    cheers! Just got it delivered at the weekend, I’m absolutely over the moon with it.

    Appreciating Asset?

    I just sold my G20 320i for £3k more than it was valued at 6 months ago…dealers are desperate for good spec, low mileage cars. Decided to push the boat out and put a deposit down on a 70 plate 840i - market doesn’t seem to have moved on cars like that, so I’m over the moon.

    Leaving the G30 fold

    It was a 18i sDrive. Engine noise wasn’t the issue, it was tyre roar and wind noise that were horrendous. I’d honestly look at other brands if you’re only wanting to look at that sort of size.

    Leaving the G30 fold

    I had an X1 as a courtesy car for a couple of days when I still had my G30, and unfortunately had to drive it to Glasgow and back from Newcastle. BMW should be ashamed to put their badge on that car, it was awful in every way. Never experienced so much road noise on anything ever…even my mum’s Skoda Fabia was quieter!

    Nope. It’s measured electronically via the idrive.

    How Cold Should A/C Be?

    I think BMW air con is generally crap. My current G20, last G30, and the 2 series loaner I had were all just ok. My Skoda superb could put air out like an arctic wind, was night and day different.

    Any M550i owners on here?

    Broadspeed for one for a factory order, and there were a few in stock advertised on Autotrader, but used cars are going fast as BMW have some issues on spec for factory orders, and I’ve delayed changing until that’s sorted.
  8. Hi all, Anyone know if the standard spec M-sport 19” wheels come with run-flats as standard fit? The configurator seems to suggest that only upgrading to 20” changes the spec to include them. cheers

    Sorry to hear that mate - one of my biggest hates is lack of respect for other people’s property. Seem like this was a combination of that and just pure stupidity. On the plus side, your ceramic coating has probably saved your paint a bit. Hope it gets sorted ok.

    Some annoying teething problems

    The start/stop works on the brake pedal position (as far I can remember), and it was an adjustment of something on the brake pedal that was done to stop the engine cut happening too early. I don’t have the car any more, and was a few years ago so that’s all I can remember, sorry.

    Some annoying teething problems

    It didn’t mate no - was a late 2017 car.

    Any M550i owners on here?

    G20 at the minute - great car, but lucky enough to be in the situation where I can look to spend a bit more, and there’s some cracking M550i deals at the minute.

    Any M550i owners on here?

    I’m seriously tempted to come back to a G30 in the form of an M550i. Are there any owners on here? What’s your thoughts?

    540i Economy

    Thanks - that’s not too bad at all. So high 30’s is quite doable on longer runs you’d say?

    540i Economy

    Hi all, What are people getting on their 540i on a run in terms of economy? There seems to be varying opinions on this. cheers
