  1. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    I'm thinking about getting X5. While I think I can probably afford it ok, it'll be the priciest thing I ever bought so far, it'll be my first nice car. My brother scares me away saying bmw only made to go 100k kilometers.. (not even miles), heavy repairs after that. What do you guys think...
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    What's the maximum range achievable on a full tank in a 2018 320i? Online spec says the tank holds 15.8 USG. Assume Premium gas and ECO PRO on a long flat highway run. Also I'd welcome any suggestions for tricks & techniques for optimizing ECO PRO use.
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    How many miles on your odometer now? I want to see what the numbers look like and then follow up with more polls to gather stats on most common failures in certain mileage ranges. Should be fun... yeah, I'm a geek.
  4. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I currently own a BMW F30 (2014) 3 Series car which was bought in March 2015 at BMW Worcester. The car has around 8000 miles and was around 1 year old. I bought the car on a PCP contract from BMW Finance UK. I had the finance agreement for 2 years before I refinanced via my bank. I have had...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Just picked up my custom ordered 2018 340i GT last week after waiting for nearly three months and it has 10 miles on it. I've put another 50 miles since, mostly city driving, and the Onboard trip indicator is showing that my average mileage is somewhere between 14-15 MPG. This is way worse...
  6. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hey guys, long time reader, first time poster. Not sure if this is the correct Forum, but I have a quick question about my lease before I return it. I have a 3-year/30,000 mile lease on a 2014 BMW 328i M-Sport which I need to return by December 17 2017. Question is: I only put 20,000 miles...
  7. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Many of you know that there are hidden functions within the BMW on board computers. One that I have used in several cars is the function of adjusting the trip computer's fuel mileage factor. Does anyone know how to access this correction factor in the new X1s? My mpg is consistently 2mpg too...
  8. General BMW Questions
    Im looking into buying a used BMW in the very near future so my big question is what is the max mileage i should go for with a used BMW? I found a 2005 BMW 330i with 136,000 on it for $4000? worth it?
  9. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hey y'all. First post here on Bimmerfest. Glad to finally be here! Alright, I'm 24/m and I just got approved for a BMW (obviously) 2014 535i X-Drive. The list price is currently at 26,999 It is a One owner vehicle (lease) and no accidents reported. I am humbly excited about the approval and...
  10. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hey all! when i first got my 2013 528 XDrive and filled up the gas tank the computer used to read 450 miles, until just today that i noticed after filling up the tank it read 414 Miles. I found this very strange because online the original tank to Mileage capacity should be reading nearly 480...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a dilemma I'm dealing with at the moment trying to decide whether I should go with the e36 with low miles that looks a little rough or the one with high miles that looks a lot cleaner. What kind of reliability have you guys had with over 200k on your rides?
  12. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi All, I am getting only 22mpg in Eco Pro with 91 octane rated gasoline, and around 26mpg on highway. I would like to know the mileage of 2012 X3 28i in city and highway in different modes - eco pro, comfort, and sport with 91 octane rated gasoline. Quite puzzled at my low numbers. Thanks, Hems
  13. F12 / F13 (2012 - 2018)
    Hey guys, I recently took delivery of a 2016 650xi. I had been driving a 2007 650 before that. I feel like I'm stopping off at the pump more often than with the '07, although I can't quite be sure. But I do have a question--- the specs for the car say it has an 18.5 gallon gas tank. I took it...
  14. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I've got an 88 325i that i got for super cheap. No surprise to me, this car has many things wrong with it. I will no doubt come to you guys since I'm cheap and somewhat like to learn. My question though, is I have a mess of wiring underneath my steering column. I think there my be a short...

  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello. I've owned a 2011 bmw 335xi coupe now for about 9 months. When I first got the car, on a full tank my range would be 320-330 miles and my dash showed that I was gettin an avg of 15.6-17.3 mpg. In the past two months or so, I've been getting 290-310 range but my I need to refill after...
  17. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    So I'm considering buying my first BMW. The deal I've spotted is a 2011 535i 6SM black sapphire/venetian beige. Here's my worry - 74,200 miles. The car seemed to be in fantastic shape, no exterior or interior blemishes from what I could tell, clean carfax as well. Some of the options include...
  18. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    Got my brand new (UK model) X5 xDrive30 SE last week. Really pleased with it except the fuel economy. Now, of course, I know you never get the advertised mileage as it's all tested in artificial lab conditions, but I'm only getting about 35 UK MPG (that's 29.1 US MPG), compared to BMW's claimed...

  20. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Ever since I had my baby, I been using 87 the first week. I later found out bmw's are supposed to run higher octane. So 1 day I took a look at my gas cap and it says to run 91 'premium' but where I live I only have 89 and 93 and of course 87. So ever since I noticed that I started using 89 1...
