Imagine not stopping in time by half a car length just to save a couple of mpg...I know which is cheaper and less hassle.
I can see that would be the case if the tyres were over inflated, but as I'm within the recommended lower/upper range, will it cause those problems?

Only time will tell, but you're in the range for a car running close to GVW. Unless you're running fully loaded all the time, I cannot see how you won't have an un-even wear pattern.

Try dropping them down 5-6 psi and see how it feels, plus also the fuel consumption degredation.

Thanks very much, that makes a lot of sense

A couple more of my favorite little coding options:

- Change the warning tones to Rolls Royce. It's much less jarring.
- Comfort entry/exit, so the seat automatically moves forward and back when the door is opened or closed.

Can you still get the RR chimes?
I did mine, then after a software update to the car I had to re do everything, and the RR chimes option was gone. Only 3 options now I think.
So the wife's Mini has RR chimes, and my 4 series has Mini chimes!

Edit: I use Bimmercode

For some reason, the RR option is only accessible in Bimmercode through expert mode:
