CarAdvice on YourMoney, 20 March 2019: What's on this week's show?

On this week's episode of CarAdvice, Trent Nikolic and Paul Maric talk about fast BMWs, cycling lanes, and modifying off-roaders. First up, Alpina has revealed the B7 xDrive, a BMW 7 Series capable of hitting 330km/h when faced with a long enough stretch of road. The RACV has suggested bicycle superhighways could slash congestion in Melbourne. A total of 10 have been proposed, including Chapel and Church St in Richmond/South Yarra.

Ford Fiesta ST gets 165kW Mountune upgrade

Tuning firm Mountune has announced a new upgrade package for the Ford Fiesta ST, which can be installed via a smartphone app. Dubbed m225, the flash tune bumps the three-cylinder hot hatch's outputs up to 165kW and 340Nm, up from the standard version's 147kW and 290Nm. Mountune claims the upgrade drops the Fiesta ST's 0-100 time to "below the 6 second mark", and shaves a full second from the 31-62mph (50-100km/h) in-gear acceleration claim.

2017-19 Porsche Panamera recalled

Porsche has recalled the 2017-19 Panamera, over concerns about the brake wear warning light. According to the company, an issue with the car's software can mean the red brake wear warning light doesn't illuminate when the pads are worn out. Instead, only a yellow warning light will be shown, and can be dismissed by the driver. If the message is constantly ignored, drivers could be driving around with worn brake pads, putting them and other road users at higher risk of an accident.
