    Heys guys im new to bmw having prevoiusly owned honda's. My last car was an ep3 civic type r and I wanted something a bit more economical, rear wheel drive and with good driving dynamics so I bought an e90 320d

    I bought the car a few months ago but have had to leave the car parked up for 13 weeks due to going away beause of my job.
    I left the battery connected fully expecting to have to use jump leads (its the 6 speed auto) and to my suprise the car started 2nd attempt, just had to hold the start button in for a few seconds longer than normal.

    On my 29 mile commute to work im averaging 40-45mpg which is a big improvement over the 25-28mpg of the civic type r.
    Im going to need some new tyres and dont really want to replace the bridgestone run flats so i'll look for a non run flat alternitive, any sugestions welcome guys
