You'll become a totally different driver with your XE and you'll need to learn a new way of using the petrol engine and battery together to save on fuel. Mine has travelled 5,518 ks with a fuel milage from new at 3.8L per 100ks. The car has traveled 3,121ks on battery and the maximum distance you'll travel on a full petrol tank and battery is 402ks as I have just fuelled up and charged the battery tonight on a warm night. You'll travel more if you charge the battery with the engine as you go and use the battery once charged when driving down hill or slow driving areas.


BMW are only taking orders now for the M Sport version from Q1 and won't commence on the build before then as I discovered when I contacted Tony (TRL) who advised this which explains the long delay. Thought your comments re changing manner of driving are quite valuable especially since you've had the experience now and passing on the details can only be helpful.

In car manufacturing terms is the Q1 reference the calendar year i.e. from January, or the financial - from April? In which case, I think that February 24th delivery estimate might be a little awry.

It would look odd and not really me having Alloygators on the rims I would feel like a nanny driver :shock: . I just have to be more careful :banghead:

You're a jewel, much appreciated. I'll scrutinize those strings in detail! Furthermore, no, we won't get any merchant prescribed washing and purging pack... (despite everything we have a 'somewhat costly' pack brimming with treats from our last Bimmer ;))

I cannot see Alloygators working as the M Sport aluminium rim centres protrude a lot more than the aluminium flange holding the tyre on. A lot of our street storm water gutters are built out of stone with very rough side.
