A Month In The F32

Hay guys i wanted to share with you my inputs and also ask some questions about my 2015 435i Coupe EBII w/ MPerf parts & exhaust

1- it feels so amazing till you get hit with your first payment! Lol
2- the car drives very nicely
3- Some turbo lags
4- WORST bluetooth audio EVER!
5- Does it really consumes less gas on Sport mode than on Eco Pro? Thats what i am feeling
6- the M Performance exhaust sounds a lot nicer on Eco Pro than on Comfort!

Congrats on the car !!
But yea i have to disagree with couple things you mentioned

3- Turbo lag
As you know any turbo will have a lag, but it is virtually non-existent in the 435 compared to other non-BMW cars.

5 & 6 not sure how you are getting this feeling

What phone are you using to stream?

Someone told me that iPhone does support aptx which is high quality Bluetooth streaming.

I find bt streaming on my android to work pretty well.

BT streaming does sound bad, but if you plug the phone in the audio streaming sounds much better.

BT is lossey, but convenient.

I haven't really noticed any turbo lag. I concur with you on the consumption though, I did a trial from work to home (about 35kms) in my 428i and the results confused me.

ECO-PRO: 6.8L/100km
COMFORT: 6.3L/100km

At first I didn't believe it so I did it 2 more times each with exactly the same result - WTF??

It depends on the road being driven and driver habits. Eco shifts the gears at lower RPMs, which works well if you drive with a light foot at fairly constant speed. But if you don't and you're often accelerating with the car in too high a gear the engine won't be running as efficiently as it would in a lower gear.

ive had my car (f36) for a week and im averaging about 13km/l which is pretty shitty. i guess its expected as its new and its manual, so im not necessarily shifting to a higher gear at around 1800 rpm when the car tells me to. is that whereabouts your zf upshifts? ive been driving mostly city so far in comfort mode. no noticeable turbo lag btw.

Bluetooth is lossy, but the audio files most of us are playing through our bluetooth connections are already very compromised. I don't think Bluetooth is the weakest link in that chain and therefore it wouldn't make the music sound worse than it already does.

I have an F10, I suppose but don't expect the bluetooth hardware could be different. My bluetooth sounds fine, and exactly the same as the line-in; in fact the level on the BT might be a bit hotter. I'd like to see the OP's bluetooth and tone settings; I doubt bluetooth itself is his problem.

^ nice car. Yours?

I do think there is some turbo lag in the N55. It's not problematic, and it's certainly nothing like what I remember from the turbocharged cars I drove in the 80s. But it is there.

My previous BMW was a NA V8, in an E60 5 series. I live at altitude in Colorado, and the N55 F10 I have now is certainly faster in a straight line than the E60 was, despite being down about 25HP. But the power from the V8 came on instantly; torque was right there at the very beginning. The N55, not so much - it takes about a half second to get going, even with the throttle mapping in sport mode.

A half second's not a lot, and the N55 is a spectacular engine. I do feel a bit of difference though.

Harman Kardon?

My bluetooth audio sounds great... and I'm sensitive to compression artifacts. I've used the ConnectDrive system with both an iPhone and Android, both worked well. Additionally I always stream using either Pandora or Google Play. I also find that it connects quickly, which is nice given my experience with other systems. If you think it sounds bad then I think there is something funked up, and just needs to be worked out!

I do find that my car gives me more mileage during dynamic driving with sport when I have less than 100 miles till empty
