    Adblue system failure

    Please excuse me if I'm wrong here but I thought AdBlue was all about reducing NOX levels not CO2; having said that I do agree with the sentiment - my son's 12 year old Fabia belches out all the supposed bad stuff out (but within legal limits ) yet cost very little to tax cf with the 540i ..................

    Winter tyre review.

    I'm also on Good Year (18") Winters and they seem fine as reported by the OP although I really haven't noticed any difference in ride comfort - perhaps that is because I have the TPs set for Eco rather than comfort? In the past I've used Dunlop 3Ds and 4Ds on a range of cars (SQ5, A3, Fabia) and they have been excellent on all those but Nokians on my SQ5 were the best of all for performance and low noise levels (even on the SE corner of the M25!!).

    Best I ever saw was on a van with P155 ORF; very posh, should be one for the Princess Royal

    Ditto to the bell-end in the 64 plate 530d on the A272 between Petworth and Midhurst yesterday - overtaking round blind bend and when oncoming traffic!

    How efficient is the coasting function?

    Really surprised me; if I really didn't like the feel of the car in Eco Pro, particularly throttle response, I would probably use it more often

    How efficient is the coasting function?

    Co-incidentally I did an experiment yesterday where I completed a 130 mile round trip (approx 40 miles M/way and the rest rural roads) in light-ish traffic; the first half in Sport+ nutter mode gave me 28mpg and the return leg (same route, conditions etc) Eco-meanie mode gave 38mpg (some 14 miles were coasting) ...................

    Icon Lights - keeping clean

    I've not found the headlight/screen washers a problem; my G31 only called for a top-up after some 9 months/10k miles .......................

    I thought they had gone over to Audi but I guess I was wrong!

    What you planning to change to ?

    Also need to take into account the "soon" to be mandatory safety improvements e.g. speed control!!

    What you planning to change to ?

    Probably going to keep this one for another 4 years; after that (if we have got rid of the kids by then) maybe a 340i Touring .......................
