so which model onwards has the quicker "HGTE" shifts? and between 07 to 08 - is there much difference?


Cars with assembly number before 122779 cannot have the HGTE package upgrade  :doh:

Don't know the assembly number of the car in Adelaide BMW.

I think you need to have a chat to John K about lifting the roof on your back little shed to fit a couple more in
there's a thought! but battling Adl Hills council is a huge headf@#k!! Too many tree huggers and I have that huge significant gum tree in my backyard!

Will need to research further into this! Don't wanna make a spur of the moment decision and regret it later!

I only want Daniele in Prestige Formula to touch my car. I don't mind paying the extra for servicing there. In fact I don't consider $1,200 for an annual service expensive at all. My Merc costs $1,000 for an annual service at BEA motors.

Too many tree huggers and I have that huge significant gum tree in my backyard!

That tree -  when i saw it it didn't look too healthy, I'm sure it's dying and is a hazard to the storage of cars lives of people.  It has to go.

agreed - I was very surprised after previously hearing horror stories from friends with older Fezzas requiring engine out just for oil change!! Hence my staying away not to mention I probably could not even remotely dream of affording them in the past!

That damn tree is actually the healthiest it has been in the 10 years I've been there! Thanks to my landscaper burying a drip feed irrigation system feeding the bloody thing after being forced to do it from a council compulsory arborist report at my expense!

Not just the risk of falling branches - i've got a bloody possum family living in it that messes up the backyard with their poop! :gnasher:

Never been in a V12

I still have not learnt to let go of the seat covers mate. Might be a good idea to sit on them on in case we both soil ourselves. The acceleration of this beast is hmmmmmm...... lets just say that there is a good chance we will soil ourselves.
