    Nope, i didn't feel any difference between misfiring and non misfiring.

    I did notice that the Fuel Consumption needle, (@ Odometer) the needle was always moving in the 15l/100km range to max range when driving at low speeds. It appears now it's at the 10l/100km and sometimes lower. I am now getting 10km/l. Basically mostly highways. Per day maybe 80km run...of this 80km's..50km is highway. No slow traffic. Previously on this similar route i was doing 7km/l.

    On side note may go for this Kcarbon thingy when i stop over at KL on my next trip.

    Yes running on 17"

    I also notice that i have this stuttering/jerking effect sometimes when driving at low speeds. Maybe 40km/h?
    Maybe cause it's a 2nd car i notice more things but i can also recall this was happening to me on my other car the R56 which i bought new...wondering if this is a BMW thing?

    Hi..mine is year 2007, presently clocking 214,000 km. FC averaging about 10 L/100km (70 highway/30 city). Car has no major issue, except replacing the water pump and thermostat at 180k km, experienced jerking previously but changing the plugs did the trick.
    Did read on decarbonising the engine, but my engine seems clean, changing engine oil at 10k km probably helps, using shell helix ultra 5w 40 or liqui moly top tec 5w 40. Still a very satisfying workhorse.

    Anyone running n UK spec?

    Beside the headlamp switch , there's two button. Top belong to fog lamp , how about bottom ?

    Can we switch on the angel ring as day time running lamp?

    My right side mirror love to tilt down by itself now, headache. Should solve it by changing the switch? Any other solution?

    Bottom is the marker light for rear. Use it when heavy rain so drivers behind you can notice you clearly instead of using hazard light

    I have experimented with a few but so far the lights are dimmer than the original yellow lights. Just ordered another one from US which boasts 100W power and I am waiting for it to arrive. Will let you all know once it does.

    You can follow my thread here.

    My 2009 325i is currently averaging around 11.1l/100km. It's highest was around 14l/100km. I'm monitoring it via Fuelly for the past one year.

    Last month, I replaced the lambda (oxygen) sensor and the consumption was noticeably lower. The sensor was kaput for one year and just finally got round replacing it.
