The app is called road trip. Think I paid about 1.50.

Unfortunately I can't comment on fuely.com as never used it. All I can say is it's easy to use. Can track multiple cars and covers maintenance expenses as well as fuel usage.

Cheeky B******* just called asking me to pay 78 diagnostic fee!, flat out refused, not even had it 28 days and it has a 12 month warranty. As far as i am concerned, they are responsible to get it running right at their expense not mine!

The car is still with them and i am awaiting an update. No charge as yet as i refused to pay as it had 12 months warranty and haven't even had it a month lol.

Luckly, its dry and mild so im enjoying the GSXR 600 as an alternative mode of transport lol

Good news for you. The mpg you're achieving seems to match with what's posted on honest john's website "real world" figures

Jixer you say.. Very nice.

I had the same problem with my 320i (58 reg with 30k on the clock). Only had her for a month and I had shudder and hesitation whilst accelerating, BMW upgraded the software. A few weeks later loss of power and engine warning light came on, BMW replaced all coils and spark plugs. Been about a two months now and no more issues ...
