Resale value - higher for BMW

No folders as such just copied everything into the USB (root I assume?)

Yes it does and also how it's driven.
On switch on its saying next service in 19k miles but I've only done 128 so far[emoji3].
My last one initially said 17k but actually had its first service when it was 2yrs old and done about 12k.

I copied my iTunes library onto a USB flash drive which is easy to do using a computer. Works/worked really well on all my iDrive cars.

I bought the service pack on my previous F25 but was annoyed to find the first service was due in 17k miles.
Due to illness it only had one service in the 3yrs I had it.
The garage do say they factor in the service pack into the resale price?
My new F25 says 19k to the next service.
The garage did say the service costs £375 ish?

I would have to do the maths but would they work with 17" wheels?

When I picked my car up they were set at 35 all round - I think they are supposed to be 32 front 35 rear?

No I had it already from when I had an E61 and at that time was replacing run flats to normals.
It was a MSport with sports suspension and the run flats made for a very hard uncomfortable ride.
I'd replaced the rears with normals as they wore out but didn't get round to the fronts before I sold it.
I've had/got variable damper control on both my F25s, both with run flats and it's a much better ride though wether that's the cause I don't know?

Yes I think so - we tried it out when I got my first F25 3yrs ago?
If my ageing memory severs me right - I'd bought a set of E83 winter wheels (which wouldn't fit) and tried it out then whilst it was jacked up at the garage?
If not I've been carrying it for nothing. [emoji3]
When I get the chance I'll check it out again just to be sure?

I've just replaced my 3yr old F25 20d SE for a new 2.0d MSport
Extras include variable damping control, zenons, adaptive lighting, headlight assist and surround view.
The lights and the headlight assist are amazing. I was quite concerned using them until I watched the animation sequence that you can download with the online handbook.
The new boot/rear door controls are a big improvement.

I have run flats on my F25 - mainly for peace of mind when my wife drives it on her own. We do have a space saver (emergency wheel kit) in the boot.
My winter set are normals. Gives a rougher but softer ride but hardly discernible from the run flats.
Perhaps the variable damping helps?

On my F25 I carry the Emergency Wheel Kit that I bought for my E61.
My garage checked that it would fit but thankfully I've not had to use it - touch wood!
