I was not present at the service centre when they did the job. So I really don't have a clue how they clean the tank. My car is still under warranty. Sorry, can't help you there.

So if it showed +11.4km just before I top up the tank, that meant I was rewarded 11.4km extra if compared to driving in COMFORT mode. Not much gain for me then.

Don't forget to invest in a good tire pressure gauge. I don't rely on the pump station pressure settings. I check every 2-3 weeks. Once a month is probably ok.

Wonder why none of you can enquire from the BMW engineers over your side. They should know how the system work.

Tailgate creaks during operation

Tailgate works fine BUT the gas struts make creaking sounds during operation. Sounded like a stiff door when opened or someone straining to BO in a toilet. :eek:
Is that normal for a 1yr old car?
