G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

Hat tip to G3x forum ...

I booked "E Klass or similar" - here's to hope that "similar" will end up being G31 330d . If it doesn't - oh well, but it certainly won't be for the lack of trying

I've used this app for two years now I think.
Thanks - I'm always interested in how I drive (relative to the krazy universe of drivers around me)!

I suppose I should turn it "off" the next time I board a train or airplane ;-)

NOW if there was an app for me to zap the bozo in the F150 tailgating me in the rain at 15 over the limit I'd install that yesterday!

Talking Rear Fogs on F10

I had swapped the original headlight switch with the EURO vers on my '13 535xDrive -- YUP ... the rear FOGS backed off the tailgaters most of the time !!

I kept it installed when I traded it for my 540xDrive. Unfortunately by G30 540xDrive doesn't have that feature though I think it can be coded.

Agreed, I always use my turn signals because I want to avoid accidents and tickets... not to mention common courtesy. In Southern California bicyclists rarely obey any traffic laws regarding red lights, stop signs, etc. This issue has become worse with the prevalence of electric scooters. Every now and then it’s fun to give them a bath while driving by with a healthy dose of windshield washer fluid. Cheers!
