    I bought brand new in July 2018 a BMW 640i M sport convertible, after having previously owned an approved used 2012 BMW 640i M Sport convertible which was solid and reliable. As such I know how good they can be and what options I wanted on my new car. So I treated myself turning 40. An overview...

    Hi, I have 20" alloys on runflats. It's an msport so the ride is quite stiff (can feel most bumps in road). Would the ride comfort improve if I swapped them for 19" alloys with bigger tyres? Thanks In advance

    I tried a G30 M-Sport recently and thought it rode rather nicely so I thought the SE I tried a week later would float along even better over drain covers and cats eyes, but I was a bit disappointed that it didn't seem to. Should it be obviously smoother on SE suspension or are the differences...

    Hi, I've recently bought a 320d 177bhp and am looking to get it remapped with DPF removal and EGR delete as well. Been quoted £450 for the lot, seems a good price. The question I have is do I need to use premium diesel once it's done? I've heard it a couple of times but never been told why...

    I recently bought a 2012 330d which has a full service history, however the most recent service was done by an independent garage.

  11. BFuk Open Topic
    Hi all, I had a bit of an incident the other night that got me thinking about fuel quality and the differing prices between retailers. I filled up at Asda (because its about 6p/L cheaper than BP/ shell etc.) and within seconds the car was misfiring badly. The tank is nearly empty now and the...
