33 mpg in town/37 on the motorway.
2.0d on 19inch alloys which I believe makes a difference

Interesting continuation on this issue, I went out to the car this morning and decided to give the switch panel a bit of a tap to see if there is perhaps a bad connection. What do you know, the passenger mirror begins to work again. So I think you may be right Alan, I think it could be the control switch. I'm hoping (but doubting) it's a serviceable part, no doubt it'll need replaced  :noexpression:

Here you go

Buy the bimmercode app - buy the dongle from amazon -- all in about £45

Then go into your VIN / ECU on the app go into the first option ADS then go into expert mode

In the expert mode

make sure on Slow connection

FO85 model
S63B44 engine
Stereo Audio Level
TL 05 Power Class

code it - go for a drive and smile  ;) ;) ;) ;)

I did think that yesterday, but I figured because the switch is still correctly folding the driver mirror that the issue wouldn't be there. It's a nightmare, always hate issues with electrics!

 can see the short lull in diesel sales, maybe 2 year and I can see the oil companies getting behind this new concept y be It will be difficult to see what the market drivers are going to be in the short term.

I wish they they would think lpg as well . Although if too many got on the band wagon they would have to think of excuses to make it less attractive.
I still think it is one of the best kept secrets around.
(No London surcharge, RFL less, cheaper to run and less wear on the engine)
My 4.4 is on 94.500 and still does not use any oil between services !!

Hi Scott,

Don't know where my brain was last night amidst all that talk about 5255kg trailer when the max towing weight specified is 2700kg!!  Still wouldn't want a fully loaded car and all that weight on the hook behind!!!!

Good luck with the quest...

Totally agree - I'm saying the big hit was taken by BMW right at the outset.
