Bought an 08/08 Tekna Auto in Black on Saturday. Looking forward to contributing.

Observations so far - seems a little asthmatic for 110bhp. 0-30 seems a little glacial compared to the 12yo 318i Touring Auto it replaces which only had 118bhp.

I take it quieter suspension bushes get a mention somewhere in the FAQ? Squeak city.

Off to search for PDC and cruise control options....

Petrol. Didn't think they ever did a Diesel Auto?

I guess I should read your post more carefully.


It's my age and eyesight.

Welcome to the world of emission controls and engine mapping to reduce CO2.


Sadly, it does affect performance.

1.6 auto has plenty of power, what was the 318 as thay can be 1.6 1.8 or 2.0 even tho thay have the 318 badge
pdc 4x100 et45 40 at a push but watch the rim width 205 tyres are about the max due to the angle of the front shocks

It had the 1895cc M43TU engine.

PDC was referring to park distance control ;-) SWMBO had it on the BMW and is missing it on the Note. Pointing out it's dead short with a vertical back is apparently not helpful....

Did 130 miles in it yesterday on the M1/M6. Impressed that the computer reckons it's getting 39MPG, will be interesting to see if the brim-to-brim test agrees.

You should do better than 39. I'm no 'feather-foot' but get 46-47 (brim-to-brim measured) on a motorway run.
