I've used vent mounted devices for years on both my previous F30 and now my GTI. The vents are plenty strong to support the mounts and phone. And they are at an optimal height.

All true. The point is we know from here and Bimmerpost at minimum that there are a number of owners that lost engines to failed timing chains. In a perfect world both Tesla and BMW would step up and...

Not meant to be an equivalency in that way. The cost of the fix is the point. No youíre not required to update the hardware. But if you want an equivalent, how many F30ís have eaten their engines due...

Agree. The unanswered question is the frequency which is not addressed in the Gizmodo article. I would hope that Tesla steps up and replaces the boards for free and does disable the system log which...

How about BMW F30 owners from the first few years with obsolete iDrive software that can't be upgraded due to the limits of the newer hardware? Thousands of dollars to upgrade if it's even possible....

A 2020 330i is a G20 not an F30. I moved this to the proper forum. And no that price is not good. First of all never put money down on a lease. Second what is the list price?

How are you getting 600+ miles per tank in your F30? I can't recall which model you have. Diesel? My 328i occasionally achieved an indicated 35 mpg on highway trips. Far more often more like...

The F32 was introduced in July of 2013 which is 2 years after the sedan. BMW is pretty consistent so likely the G22 will be introduced in 2021.

What is the tensioner mechanism like? I picture a mechanical device with some sort of spring. If this is the case, there's no temperature sensitivity except under extreme cold.

What does BMW say in the owner's manual? In the past they have not recommended tire rotations on square setups. I think this has to do with alignment settings. Basically it's up the owner.

I think the point has been made and as it's not really pertinent to the G20, I am closing the thread.

Why are you adding a new variable? First of all itís conjecture not fact that the LPFP is the OPís problem.

I've done some research online and I couldn't find a video specific to the F30 but it appears the LPFP is under the rear seat, not in the gas tank.

How do you explain those of us who have run our tanks low numerous times with no issues? Itís not luck.

Can't say what's wrong but I put 65,000 miles on an N20 and there were plenty of times when I was well below 50 miles to empty with no ill effects.
