    How efficient is the coasting function?

    Glad I am not alone. I’ve seen this over several journeys

    How efficient is the coasting function?

    I have been following this thread so today drove from Purley to Fareham Hampshire and back. Same route both ways. A23 / M25 / A3 / M27. 78 miles each way. Comfort there Eco Pro back. Mostly on cruise control both ways set at 80 mph. Traffic flow and traffic amount remarkably similar both ways. Comfort 36.4 mpg Eco Pro 31.3 mpg. This has been my experience before on other journeys of 50 miles plus. Regards Richard

    Can I ask those that have had experience of them, for a normal oil service are Munich Legends that much cheaper?

    I have 20” run flats as part of the M Sport Plus package and find the ride excellent, road noise low and appearance very nice filling the wheel arches well. Pressures make a slight difference to road noise. Pot holes are so bad around where I live work and commute they effect every wheel size so driving involves extra care and snaking all over the carriageway in many places.

    Real World mpg 530d v 540i

    540i .....29.7 mpg over 12,000 miles, typical journey average pace 200 mile Kent to Nottingham and back 37.8 mpg earlier this week in Comfort, worst significant cross country thrash 40 or so miles in Sport Plus S mode 15.4 mpg. i don’t find Eco Pro much better than Comfort but it’s certainly less responsive and drivable.

    filler polishes.

    I find Autoglym SR to be very good. Most dusting occurs when too much is applied. A good discipline is to use very little for each application, just enough to faintly cover the panel, applying in gently overlapping circles, polish it off and then reapply again. More polish does not equal a better finish. Generally more polish leads to light and dark patches after removal. Always finish up with a detailing spray for the best finish. This was the result of my weekly detail. Unfortunately a few spots of rain fell as I was taking the photos.
