Thanks Mogsy , I forgot to have a look at Carly to see what it can set for that. I would prefer a quick click to open it fully as I don't see the point in just unlatching it.

It is very frustrating when it opens a bit, you press the key again, then it closes, and you have to start again. Sort of defeats the object of it.

Good job.

I trust your daughter had not fitted it whilst you were away then?  :))

What is really the trick to do this consistently? If I use the key, sometimes it just pops open, sometimes it opens fully. I generally press the key for 2 seconds or so.

The same with the rear lock by hand. If I keep holding it, it sometimes just pops open and other times opens fully.

How should it work?

I won't list the M consumption  :-[

My E70 40D did around 34 mpg on the trips to the continent, cruising at 130 km/h.

I only ever used my 40d on the longer trips though, never on city driving so do not have the mpg values for that. Worst was 30, best 36.

Lifetime mpg when I sold the car with 30k on it was 31.2 mpg.

I could no longer see my computer screens properly with them in, so gave up after a couple of days.

Good luck  :)

Looks stunning. I wonder why BMW fit front fog lights to this, when all the other M cars don’t have them?

On my other M, the fog lights were in the place where on the M the air ducts were to cool the brakes. On the X5, the lights do not block anything so I guess there would be no benefit in deleting them.

Would be easier if they were not there though as I never know which button is for the front or the rear fog lights  :))

The beast has landed. Great to drive, not so sure about the 6 mpg so far though  :'(

It has a lot more toys than the E70, and I have the sunroof again on this one (last time on the E53).

The heads up is good, the surround cameras very good as well (strangely enough I preferred the E70 surround cameras though). The finish with the alacantara roof is much nicer than on the E70, leather door cards give a nice touch to the finish.

Getting a nail in one tyre could work out very expensive as you would almost have to change all 4 then  :'(

I specifically ordered the new M without that, I really can't see the point or benefit of it.
