Hello from Nottingham
« on: November 20, 2017, 07:02:08 PM »
Just chopped in my 2006 E46 M3 ... I was planning on a E90 M3, but stumbled across a 2008 4.8i. Glad I made the decision to go for it. Such a great engine, just wafts along. Look forward to participating in the forum. Cheers

Thanks.. yes it's a great engine. I've done 230 miles and still have 1/4 tank left. 90 miles reports the OBC. If I can get 300 miles I'm happy with that. Only got just over 200 from the M3

Actually thats not bad, how much was a tank of petrol out of interest?? Intrigued to see difference compared to a tank of diesel cost wise.

Get some more pics up in the 'Gallery' section, also of the M3 - had an E46 myself!!!

Yes, the M3 has a 62 litre tank the X5 is 85. 230 to 250 from 62 litres in the M3 same as this.
