Received in the post, just waiting on the extension cable now. OBD port will soon be moved for added security

As usual, genuine BMW parts.

MPG has dropped slightly over the last few tanks because of increased town driving / traffic.

Averaging 28.66 since i purchased it.

Viper Alarm installed by Anthony at www.securemycar.co.uk OBD port stage 1 also modified (immobilised). Stage 2 to come tomorrow (relocate). I wont be specific on Alarm/Immobiliser/OBD details for security purposes.

Nice subtle stickers located in rear windows, tried them in the front ones but didnt like it.







And the nice flashing blue LED viper sign in windscreen, looks great at night, really stands out




Video'd from about 15meters with crap camera.

Car has had a deep clean today see here : http://www.bmwland.co.uk/forums/view...?f=31&t=138696

Polishing has worked a treat and i have managed to get 98% of the vandal scratches out; still getting it resprayed at some point as the bonnet and front bumper have a few stone chips

Wow, that's amazing work, wouldn't have thought those scratches would come out with just polishing. Did you do it yourself?

Well my mpg is up over the past 3 months, helped by the last tank but definitely getting between 2 mpg and 4 mpg more since changing to Momentum 99 fuel.

New fuel log since changing to a Galaxy S3.
