    Set of four genuine BMW 619 alloys wheels with Dunlop Sport 3D Runflat winter tyres. 245/45 R18. Includes original BMW wheel sensors and centre caps. These were fitted to my G30 530d X Drive M Sport (now sold) and they fit over the blue M Sport brakes. Wheels are immaculate. Two of the tyres are brand new, the other two have 5mm remaining. Purchased brand new from BMW for £2100. Will post further pics asap. £900

    G31 wheel sizes

    I have had all three sizes. I am currently on 20s with Goodyear ROF and the ride is fine, much better than an F10 with 19s. Potholes are a worry and some make a noticeable thud but have never had any bulges or alloy problems. Ran a set of the same tyres on 19s for a while and there wasn't much difference at all. I have a set of 619 18s with Dunlop 3D ROF winter tyres and notice a difference but nothing major. The Dunlops are directional so just swap front to back. No problems with the winter setup and they have travelled to Eastern Europe several times to a region with heavy snow. At half the cost of 20 inch staggered winters I worked out I would save the cost of the winter alloys themselves with two sets of tyres, plus still have a resale value. I do not have VDC, which I imagine would mask any differences slightly better.

    Main Dealer Service Price

    Very true. BMW are absolutely rigid on the mileage too. I had mine serviced about 2k miles before it was due as per the indicator. I booked in and turned up at 35986 miles. The service desk said it wasn't due but I argued that I was taking the car to Spain and Portugal the next week and would be way past the service interval when I got back. They were fine with that and it was included in the plan. As soon as the mileage goes over 36k, even by one mile, the service pack expires.

    Main Dealer Service Price

    36k miles or 3rd birthday, whichever is sooner.

    Winter tyre review.

    I'm currently running Dunlop Sport 3D and find them excellent. I was in Eastern Europe for the Xmas break last year and had no problem in 8 inches of snow. Mine will be due for a change before the next winter season as they are currently down to 5mm and they are no longer classed as snow tyres once under 4mm. I will be replacing with Dunlop again.

    530d judder.

    I have had the same issue. Seems to happen on constant throttle at about 50-60 mph. My 530d has 45k miles on now and I have only noticed it about a dozen times in all. The most recent was on my way home last night through roadworks. I am going to book in for MOT first week in March so will mention it then. My warranty expires 30th March, so would like to get it sorted or at least reported by then.
  13. Would anyone on here who has 18" wheels like to swap them for my 19" 664M wheels? I already have the 20" which came with the M Sport + pack for summer but would like smaller wheels for winter (I travel to Gemany/Poland a fair bit) The 19" wheels are shod with Goodyear Eagle F1 runflats with 6.2mm front and 5.7mm rear. TPMS fitted, as standard. One front wheel had a small area of kerbing and has been sanded and lacquered by a wheel refurb company, so is hardly noticeable, pic attached. Happy to supply photos of all wheels to satisfy anyone they are all in unmarked condition apart from the one mentioned.

    G32 First Service

    I bought the service pack just before my first service for £399. Have just had the second service carried out early, as it was due at 38k miles. I dropped the car off with 35985 miles on it! The service advisor tried to tell me the car didn't need a service yet and was going to turn me away but I told them I was due to drive to Spain and Portugal in a couple of weeks and the mileage would be 3k over by the time I got home. After asking if the warranty and breakdown cover would still apply if that far over mileage they accepted the car with no quibble. Service indicator when starting up now states service due in 19k, so the dealers sell the pack knowing it's unlikely you will get teo services out of it.

    Winter wheels/tyres

    18 inch wheels (non staggered) are the official BMW recommendation for the 5 with m sport brakes (the blue ones) I have a set of 619 style wheels for winter. Try the bay of E - search for 18" g30 winter wheels. I paid around £1450 for a brand new set with new tyres from Germany which were £2300 from BMW in the UK

    G31 540i and Winter Wheels/Tyres

    18s will fit. I've done the same. I have 18 inch style 619 (same as the UK spec se models come with as standard) They are non-staggered as per the official BMW recommendation and running 245/45 R18 runflat winter tyres. Mine is a 530d M Sport X drive with M Sport plus pack. (The blue M Sport brake calipers) Try eBay - dealers in Germany often have these in stock and far cheaper than uk. I got mine brand new with tyres for £1650 delivered.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Excuse me for posting this on the F series thread, but i thought this may help someone in the future... I had to order a spare for my G30 with comfort access after my daughter binned mine. I usually use the display key, so luckily it wasn't that one. Standard key - £494 including coding at the dealer!!!. I waited a while and in the meantime took out separate key insurance for £27 per year. No excess applies. I claimed for lost keys and after a three day waiting period I was given the go ahead to replace the key. Invoice emailed over to them and reimbursed within a week.

    Intermittent Comfort Access

    I have experienced the same in the last week or so. Wondering if the cold weather could be causing it. Every time mine hasn't locked first time it has been sub zero. Also having issues with the headlight washers - only the offside one is working. Loathed to go to the dealer for them to do anything that involves removing the bumper as I just know there will be marks on the paint afterwards....

    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    Only just read the rest of this thread. Why have you got a clay bar and wax if your car has been ceramic coated? It's pointless waxing on top of ceramic and the clay bar will introduce marring. #justasking

    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    Here's a 50:50 video of when I recently had mine done. Paint correction and ceramic coating necessary after booking in for a service and the dealer washing it, despite me telling them not to. The whole car was covered in scratches. Three months of fighting my case later, the detailer received the pay-out from my local main dealer and booked me in. The door has been corrected, the wing shows the efforts of the main dealer! Teaser pic of the rear after coating applied. 46128697_2141778219206873_354446625688518656_n.mp4

    Roof bars and roof boxes

    If the lock has a code on the barrel, such as N123, you can get a.set of keys cut to code for Thule roof boxes. I just had to do this and the keys were spot on. Plenty of locksmiths on eBay advertising them...

    Which Dashcam do you use?

    The voltage monitoring kept giving errors on the I-drive as the parking mode was draining the battery (although very minimal). The power magic was set to cut off supply at 12.8v. Never had a problem starting the car. With the Cellink Neo fitted the errors have disappeared and I get around 36 hours of parking mode before the battery has depleted. I didn't want to run the risk of not being able to open the car with the display key, which is usually the only key I use and therefore no key blade is carried for emergency use...
