New since Feb 14 2018...
« on: April 08, 2018, 03:59:13 PM »
Hi All

I'm new to this forum and new to BMW....previous cars were Merc and lastly Lexus.

Love the G01 ...XDrive, XLine, 20D...Sophisto Grey, Canberra & Fine Wood Trim, Comfort Package, Professional Nav and Adaptive LED

Currently 4000 klms done @ 6.4 ltrs per 100 klm (44mpg)

I do a lot of touring so diesel it is...not enough infrastructure for the range I require anywhere yet to consider any electric option.  Imagine heading for a ferry etc and having to build in an hour recharge somewhere....and in use when you get there!  Wouldn't work for me! The Euro 6 standard is a big improvement on the previous standard and Ad Blue is part of the o/a package regards emissions. 
Very comfortable particularly on a long journey and I've done a few 500klm round trip journeys already. Really enjoying my first BMW.

Good to hear about your experience with the new X3.
I ordered mine in the M40i spec, long wait ahead. Not likely to be built till end of the month, another month to get to UK from factory.
Enjoy 😉

Yes, got it on Monday.
Unfortunately, paint protection has been delayed, and as I told the dealership not to wipe it, looks a bit unkempt.
Will post pictures when my detailer has been and applied the protection.
Drives brilliantly, running it in carefully for now, but superb acceleration and good on twisty Dorset roads. :P

Having problems uploading a photo.
Having to go through a different program tinypic, which is making the image very small. Have to find a way around it.

Here’s a picture pre-paint protection, which took all evening. So will post later.
Steering a bit stiff compared to my 440i, everything else is superb.
Haven’t got the homelink to work yet, will keep trying
