Those who have found the sound poor, is this after breaking the speakers in? When I picked up my X5 with the 'professional' speakers as they're called here (a $1500 option and second down from the...

What wheels do you have? Most have the 20's. One thing you can do that will improve the ride a little is to change to the 19's or 18's (more side wall), and also go for non run flat tyres. Rft's have...

I'm getting c high 20s mpg at the moment. That's a mixture of short journeys and longer ones, and with the engine still loosening up - I've only done 700 miles or so. I've picked up from other 40d...
