  1. As above. For "full" OS7 users I presume.

    Great - buckled wheels

    4 of my relatives have Kia’s - not a problem between them EV6 looks VERY interesting (better than the Ioniq5).

    Problem is people buy brands. Genesis is an extremely good car (Stinger underneath) BUT it will depreciate like a 7 series…(or a V8 5 series).

    I’m glad that it wasn’t just me then….. Thought I must be missing something - but I suppose you just get used to “better quality” (didn’t mean to offend any G20/21 owners!) Not looking forward to the day I have to downsize (although my wife’s C350e is more than acceptable!)

    Great - buckled wheels

    Had a G21 320d m-sport pro on loan when my wheels were being replaced. I was never impressed with the F30/1 quality wise from previous experience and was expecting more from the G20/1. Well I have to say I was disappointed. Whilst quality is better than the previous generation you can see where costs were saved against the G30/1 (or even the F10/1). Touch points don’t compare to these models. Really plasticy switches and gear knob on the centre console for example. It was also in “Subaru” blue which didn’t help the looks. I feel lucky to only have “owned” 5 series models over the last 10 years. Great to get back to my smooth, quiet, comfortable 530e. I guess that I’m not the target market for the 3 series.

    I think you’re correct - inner and outer rims affected.

    I’ll cheer myself up with a couple of F1 photos:

    Hmm already changed with no offer/suggestions to repair… I will take it up with Sytner next week (at Silverstone now). Fortunately Cash not an issue in these times… Ill try for some goodwill.

    Front two on LCI M-sport Edition 530e. BMW inspection says “pothole” and I can’t prove otherwise No idea when it happened. No wheel wobble or tracking issues. Leasing company (for company car) says insurance job which I’m not prepared to do so £1,593 hit….for me. First time in 40 years of driving.

    myBMW App - iPhone V 1.5.0

    I also have “full” OS7 so maybe that’s why I had different symptoms?

    myBMW App - iPhone V 1.5.0

    No problem with mine. My old Connected Drive App stopped working on the 30th June (as we were told it would) so I deleted it.

    Easiest / Cheapest retrofits

    Heated seats were standard on the F10/11 after the initial launch vehicles (maybe the first 3/6 months of supply?)

    Thinking of going for a 530e from 530d

    Easy - unless you’re a lead foot….

    Thinking of going for a 530e from 530d

    Easy 45mpg in my experience (on a regular 120 round trip up into the Peak). LCI. Is definitely more economical than pre-LCI. 60 mpg over 250 miles this weekend to Wales so far setting off with a full charge (only c.40 miles on motorway.)
