Hey man thanks for adding me to the facebook group, is there a whatsapp group for the same too?

Btw i had one doubt, all the previous f10s came with 17 inchers and 225 profiles
I really hate that my 520 has 245 profile all over on 18 inchers, i mean wouldn't that make the car slower? Even though its the 190hp one, 2016 model

Hi amit,

There is a German car group called Deutsche Dash Touring (DDT) where we organise drives / meets.

This is one of our recent drives from last month;

Yes, but the older F10 were lower on power so any way you'l be as fast or faster.

Also with 245's you get more grip off the line & better cornering ability & better looks.

If you want to make your car faster go in for a MPPK or a remap, dont downsize your tyres

Hey Karan , Nice car there !!! Also would like to thank you for that comparison video you did between pre LCI and LCI 3 series , it was amazing .

Since you are driving a petrol bimmer -also a bimmer expert) , I would like to ask you that whether it is correct that petrol bimmers aren't as reliable as their diesel counter parts and that you should only fill high octane petrol -speed 97 and so on), otherwise the performance and the life of the engine is reduced to a great extent .

I am almost decided on 320i but have my doubts on whether this engine would be able to perform on normal petrol .

Thanks.

Well, in fact Petrols should be more reliable IMO. But thats a debatable topic.

Coming to the fuel to be used, 328i runs on regular fuel without issues. But i put 97 after every alternate tank fill or sometimes if im passing the 97 bunk i tank it up (Just because i want to not that i have to). In fact the M5 can also run on regular fuel. So dont put down your petrol BMW dreams so soon

Buddy, I would never mind sharing openly my final deal here, rather I believe that's what forum like these are all about, to share each other's experiences ,gain knowledge and find solutions to the problems related to the cars . Yes I agree ,even I have seen few posts here where the members were more happy in sharing the deals through PM and not here openly on this forum .

Anyway, regarding my deal, I am not able to meet them and close it due to my tight schedule . Will hopefully meet them ,negotiate and close it this weekend and share the deal here(BTW even if i want i can't PM anyone as i am still a newbie)
