Ahh thats fantastic man im just going to put my own sound system into my car, i mean R7000 is very pricey when i can get better for say R4000, anyway im happy too glad you enjoying your car, yea i had to wait 3 weeks while it sat on the show room floor so i could register it as a 2013 i saw a 125i on the road today a white one, with a female driving it.. its a nice car.. I'm still disappointed that i don't have the auto climate even though the manual is just fine and the sports transmission and the bluetooth those are the only options i feel left out on.. but anyway put some foot down today and had a fright to see that i was doing nearly 180km on m3, car is such a pleasure to drive, still excited to see some pictures when you get around to it.

The speed is addictive and just sneaks up on you. I'm trying to get through a tank on Eco pro just to see how much I can eke out and found myself doing 130 on the M3 when I stopped paying attention to the speedo. In Sport mode I often end up doing over 100 everywhere. It's a speeding fine waiting to happen! Bluetooth would be awesome if my phone was fully supported but I ditched my iPhone for an Android handset so there is limited support for music playback.

First one was 300 odd, the about 400. Now that I'm rocking Eco-pro I've done 200km on the first quarter tank

We should probably be enjoying the performance rather than doing economy runs at this point! And I have read in some posts that the engine seems to need to be run in before it starts approaching the BMW claimed consumption figures. Maybe I'll go back to Sport mode tomorrow.

I couldn't agree more performance for the win I was told by my dealerships that all engines these days are run in at the factory and from delivery we can rev and do what we like with it but yet i have been taking it fairly easy, petrol is going up this year so going to be using eco more often, I still find the power in eco really good going to give my car till 1000 km.. right now its sitting under 300km still very new
