Re: Your fleet running reports

Thanks all. Hadn't thought of that. Will give it a few hard stops and see what we get.

Alignment ok as far as I know. Pulls straight and tyres wear evenly (I think)..

Re: Your fleet running reports

650i has had an annoying brake judder for a while now. BMW originally diagnosed it as worn bushes, which I had replaced. It’s not as bad now - only happening when braking from 70ish, whereas before it was there at almost all speeds. Apparently the discs are fine. Hope it gets through the MOT in a fe...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Nice pics, Mito. I've been meaning to do a euro road trip since I bought my 6. Would you mind posting some more info about your journey plan if you get a chance? Sure, I only booked hotels in Zurich, Verona and Luxembourg. First day I drove straight from Calais to Zurich only stopping for fuel and ...

Re: Your fleet running reports

I bought a lovely little cottage back in June, which also meant I'd no longer be walking to work. As much as I'd love to be using the 650i every day, it's far too costly, especially with the round trip being 60 miles. So I acquired a 2.2 diesel Civic (FN shape) from a family friend not long after t...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Those rumours are true from what I can tell. If you do a quote on the BMW warranty site and on -/+ 60k miles, there is quite a big price difference. Mine was on about 43k at the time, now on 62k. Price has increased by about a tenner a month since inception (late 2015) but a quick check of BMW websi...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Yes, BMW one. £67 per month. Comprehensive, £250 excess with no breakdown.

Ah yes, the rubber weather strip perished.

Re: Your fleet running reports

Very very rarely, the convertible roof button will flash and the iDrive says the soft top isn’t shut, even though it is. A quick bang on the rear left of the roof frame resets the sensor! German engineering for you.. In all seriousness, it is actually a really well built car and I’m reminded of it e...

Re: Your fleet running reports

My 650i does 22/23 combined but will return 30/31 ish on a run. Still have it, btw. Glad I didn’t sell; it’s been running really nicely since having its valve stem seals done.

Re: Your fleet running reports

Just picked the 650i up from BMW. Been there for almost a month having its valve stem seals replaced under the extended warranty. I am so glad I got that warranty! The bill wasn't cheap. Glad I wasn't paying... I remember reading about someone on PH DIY-ing it having bought the specific tool for th...
