I have the rear carbon diffuser and recently got a westfalia towbar fitted. No issues, no cutting. It can definitely be done.

I had the same issue too. I’m now paying around £600 with Aviva but had to get a tracker fitted to get it down to that  >:(

I got the Trackstar which is apparently BMW approved but it set me back around £300 plus around £130 a year.

It was all a massive shock to me as I figured it would only be a little more than the SQ5. How wrong was I.

I refuse to get a tracker, as there’s no way I’d want the thing back if some scrote ever nicked it. I’ll phone Privilege today and see what they have to offer, as I’ve been with them for a couple of years (won’t hold my breath!).

Worst case, £750 isn’t the end of the world, but I haven’t paid anywhere near that for insurance in over 25 years of driving, including several M cars.

I’m still struggling to get my head around why this costs twice as much to insure as a brand new £70k M3!

Yeah I’m with you, I don’t really want the car back after it’s been half inched. I just wanted to not be paying well over £1k a year for insurance!  This is also the most I’ve ever paid for insurance despite a number of Performance cars.

My M50d does between 30-33mpg on local roads and up to the high 30s on the motorway.
So I would say low to mid 30s for the 40d similar to the 30d.

That’s pretty impressive. Are these actual figures or from the trip computer? I’m on 29.2 over 4K miles according to the trip computer. I’m sure it equates to a lot less in real terms though. 🙁

Gutted for you. Have you considered a dash cam?
I’ve considered one yeah, I’m not sure it would have done any good for this incident as it’s the passenger door. I guess if I had reversed into the space then it might have caught the plates, though I would have struggled to get my cycling gear out the boot!

I had my E70 and F15 detachable hitches installed by PF Jones
No issues and good value
They’re doing mine in a couple of weeks too.

Thanks guys. I’m raging. I’m pretty sure it happened whilst I was at the bike trails on Monday. Parking was limited so I couldn’t do my usual park miles away from anyone routine.  Stupidly, I though it would be fine on this one occasion, That’ll teach me.

Good shout on warning the mum at next as you’re right, she probably wouldn’t have considered it (not saying she would have hit it if you hadn’t said anything though!)

Driving though Germany I found that the S63B44 ASD sound was becoming quite wearing, and coded it back to the original ASD - over 2500 rpm it really gets quite droning so unfortunately it had to go.

What I would like is for the gear display in standard to indicate the actual gear you are in, as it does in Sport. Anyone managed that one?

Shame you had to change but I can imagine it becoming tiresome. I too would like to see the gear indicator in Comfort mode. I got used to it in the Audi.

Around £600 for the diffuser, a bit more for the splitter.

eBay has genuine bmw parts available from a bunch of bmw dealerships. I got my rear diffuser from one & saved a fortune.

Having the XM5 ASD is quite entertaining. However, has anyone tried the S55B30 (M3/M4) option? I imagine it would also mean choosing in “Model” the F080. Still have to try a good run on the motorway to see if the ASD mod gets tiring.

I think you would have to be going pretty hard to having the noise droning.  It’s about 3k rpm that it starts getting louder.  That translates into quite a speed.

I do drive through Germany 4 times a year...  ;D

If the ASD was too much, what setting/code should be applied to go back to standard?

I took screenshots!
