    Hello everybody. I made an account deliberately for this issue because I couldn't find answers anywhere. So I bought this beautiful car and I fell in love with it. It's a grey BMW. lel jk 2005 N52 manual 523i E60 Pre LCI 200k km or 120k miles? Since I bought it I've had poor fuel economy...

    Bought a few weeks ago and it's giving me 14.4mpg, 70% city, 30% highway. Did my own math and same shown on dash. Got 2K miles left for next oil change (7500 miles since last by previous owner). Tire pressures all good. I see no leaks. Any suggestions please? Thanks.

    So it's been almost 4 months since I have driven my certified 2013 Sportline Silver/Red interior 328i X drive. The mileage around the city has been ok. Nothing to brag about ...around 21-22mpg. I finally took the car out on a trip and set it on Econ mode. I was not driving at crazy high...

    I'm a new owner of a 1982 633csi with 92,000 miles (3.2). So far, the gas mileage is far below the estimates from when the car was new. I'm getting around 12 mpg in town & just under 18 on the highway. It's an automatic, and the engine, which has been well-maintained, seems very strong &...

    I have been on here for a while now trying to learn as much as I can from all you Bimmerfest vets. The only problem is... It gets a little difficult to decipher ( till its too late) For a beginner like me if What I just learned applies to my 2000 540i (e39) or not. So I'm hoping all will help...
  6. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I just got back from a family reunion in Charlotte. Most of the way I used the Active Cruise Control, and it worked great. There was one time on the way back that the air pressure from a truck just to my right caused the collision alert to go off. It was a beautiful drive up, lots of family...
  7. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm not saying this is a bad thing at all but when I'm driving my 08 535xi on the highway it's saying that I'm getting 29mpg. I honestly thought I'd be getting alot worse gas mileage. Is this reading correct or is it just messing with me? I was doing about 90 the whole time on the highway and...

    i recently bought my first bmw a few months ago, a 02 325i, and it's started to give trouble. it runs terribly. it vibrates very rough at idle, almost bouncing, & it's difficult to get it to stay on when started for the first time that day. the acceleration is also down the drain. when i start...

    Thanks guys for responding to my original question. I ordered the fuel filter and replaced it. my mechanic said that it was really dirty. the car feels lighter and the initial hesitation is pretty much gone. Also replaced the Air Filter, the one in the car was charcoal black, really in a bad...
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    A little over a week ago, I decided to replace my own rubber intake boots ('02 530i). Since replacing the boots, my gas mileage has fallen off dramatically. I feel like I can see the fuel needle moving as I drive. I doubt I'm getting 10 mpg. The car seems to run fine otherwise and I'm not...
