  2. BMW 2 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW F22
    Hi guys new on here, was looking for an answer for this everywhere and couldn't find one. Does anybody know the answer? I know the Competition has the OPF, but wasn't sure about the normal M2? If some of them have got it is there a way to know so I don't end up buying one with it?

    After getting my new car de-mapped (it turns out the remap my car (unknowingly at the time!) came with (by Performance Direct of Barnsley), was the cause of the cold running issues, white smoke, misfiring & hunting for the 1st few minutes of idling.

    Hi Folks. I picked up a very well priced 535d E60 last night. Before i purchased, the seller claimed the car did have a full history up to his ownership but the history was misplaced. Naturally i thought 'yeah right', but rang my local BMW dealer who said they could see history for it but not...

    I bought mine new last August and have only done 3500 miles, mainly because I mostly ride my motorbikes. Since new, there has been a pronounced buz or resonance on engine start and which occurs at about 1000rpm. It sounds exactly as you would imagine coming from a loose heat shield on the...

    Hi All. Mine doesn't seem to have an opening tailgate, (2007). The door is either open or it's not, no separate option for just the window to open. Was this an optional extra, or has it been removed by a previous owner? Thanks in advance.

On the OBC the MPG reads that I get 40 mpg, however when I work out the actual mpg (litres divided by 4.546 to get the gallons then miles done divided by the gallons)...
