    Help choosing a G30

    I find standard dipped beams OK but agree with previous comment that main beams are atrocious. I cant understand why dipped and high beams are both placed in the same reflector.

    Icon lights not happy in cold weather?

    Have to agree; dipped beams acceptable but high beams are dreadful

    Auto Transmission Issue

    Want to share an experience that I have had on at least six occasions : In full auto transmission mode while accelerating from a static position, vehicle failed to upshift until revs exceeded 4000rpm. This happened earlier today at busy roundabout and was quite scary. NB. Was using Comfort Mode on each occasion

    2018-2 Maps available from Download Manager

    Map data downloaded and then had to wait for arrival of 64GB USB from ebay.

    2018-2 Maps available from Download Manager

    I Downloaded the 2018-2 map update (29gb) and formatted a 64gb USB drive to FAT32 using a third party formatting utility. Data transferred from laptop to USB via BMW download manager. When I inserted USB drive in vehicle, download initially started (0%) but then Idrive showed error "Data on USB unusable." So where did I go wrong?

    520D Mileages

    My MPG results over 1800 miles are 48.2 (520d XDrive). Approx 50% (900 miles) driving on longer runs ... with remainder short 'cold' runs and urban driving. I am mainly using comfort mode.

    Light Switch Settings

    Hi All, I'm a newbie to the forum - but have been viewing informative posts in recent weeks. Bought G30 520D Xdrive a few months ago and really impressed with it when compared to previous E60. My question concerns the light switch settings. I noticed that when set in the '0' position, dipped headlights come on automatically in rain and relatively low light. I thought this was solely a function of the 'A' (automatic setting) only and would prefer if the '0' position meant exactly that.
