lol i thought going to that from a stock exhaust will make FC worse??

Not true. Optimal back pressures, flow rate, etc. it's all very technical. Just like last time my FC improved after I swapped to lighter forged rims. Might save 0.1km/liter, doubt the discussion is worth our time honestly. Better off buying a hybrid.
 
Re: F10 520i FC?????

hmm, yeah makes sense. My only concern is that if my current FC is not normal for a stock car, then I might have to make a trip to PML and look into getting the injectors cleaned and what not...
 
Re: F10 520i FC?????

Ask yourself about your travel pattern (lots of start-stop driving vs highway? Lots of idling?) and driving habits (heavy footed?) before checking with PML.

As FC is a primary concern for performance, prepare to sell the car if FC issue is not sorted out.

Sounds ok for medium-hard city driving for E60, don't know about F10. How has it changed for you over the years? If not, just relax on the gas pedal and enjoy the view of the OLs in the city... I do...

If u change exhaust, FC confirm worse. Cos u will rev at the red to make the OL turn her head...
 
Re: F10 520i FC?????

Since urs is not a FC comparison thread like some of the other immature threads...I would be very interested to know how come its so bad.

Variables:

1. City driving, jam most of the way? FC sure HIGH
2. Petrol tank leaking? Doubtful
3. You rev like a champion? Maybe
4. You go up slope a lot and jam on slope? Maybe

Choose any one that fit you.

If none, then ur petrol tank maybe BMW use an M5 one..

I usually drive from Orchard to Suntec and back, I have the start-stop system to permanently off through coding and drive on comfort modee, haha not much space to be heavy footed...but there are quite a few traffic lights...
 
Re: F10 520i FC?????

7200km? wah u dun drive much...

Are u like me, wash car liao park in carpark refuse to drive and then go take MRT/Bus?

But mine is 1yr 6 months old with 14k km liao..
 
Re: F10 520i FC?????

This kind of mileage, can you really trust your computer to analyse your FC ?

haha I drive almost everyday but my commute distance quite short...

If your commute is short, all the more u shouldn't worry about the FC. I clock >100km a day and I heck the FC cos if I keep looking at the FC on the display, I will lose sight of the OLs on the roads.

I will be rude in my response.

Since u already buy such an expensive car, who cares about FC?

For FC calculation, shouldn't u use paper/pen/calculator to do it rather than car computer?

Lastly, ur car confirm will have bad FC because it is choked with carbon for juz driving in the city. It is better u drive a golf cart. Cheaper.
