    start / stop over enthusiastic?

    yes, AUTO H definitely solves the restarting problem but I usually drive without it because I use the crawling at tickover quite frequently. So I've either got to turn on/off AUTO H during every journey or put the gearbox into Sport mode to avoid stop/start. I might look into having this coded out; how have people done that? Any contacts in the Midlands?

    Winter tyre review.

    Hi All, AFAIK the GoodYear UltraGrips are available star marked as both runflat and standard tyres; is that correct? Are most people running the ROF version? I am happy to carry a mobility kit so considering non runflat option.

    Winters are off

    Goodyear ROF winters felt better than Conti ROF summers on my F31, both on 18"s
  4. On my 2018 G31 530d xDrive sometimes the engine cuts out before the car is stationary and then starts iteself again immediately before I then switch it off manually. Has anyone else noticed this issue? I don't think it's correct but not sure if the main dealer will be able to help.

    Winters are off

    Hi All, I am planning to get a set of the Goodyear Ultragrip for the coming winter. I already have a set of 18" style 618 wheels to put them on. Am I right in thinking that the Goodyear Ultragrip are available as BMW Star marked both as runflat and standard tyres? I know this has been done to death but are most going for RFT or not?

    Leaving car standing for long periods

    I think the issue that Matthew may have been pertaining to is the the fact that the alternator is not permanently engaged and charging. I believe that BMW remote services monitors battery levels but apart from that a short drive including plenty of coasting/overrun may be enough.
