Petrol doesn't bother me. My MPS does 17mpg atm
Yea, it looks nice, but must be something up with it. So I'll skip it.
I wouldn’t touch it tbh.
Not any more it isn’t
I don't think he's looking at those..
Considering he’s looking at Barried F30s, I don’t think brand new S4s are on his list
Although he could import a petrol one from the US
No, I’d imagine not, unfortunately.
Can't stretch to new ones.
I’d be wary of that horrendous leather interior!
Make sure the indicators work
Badum tush! I've been lucky, the previous owner ticked them on the spec sheet when new.
Jag XF V6?
Tried that one before.
The kids seat didn't leave enough leg room for a passenger up front.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the DPF has been cut out and coded out looking at that particular example…
The effort of putting an exhaust on and with no DPF + Remap that’s a recipe for healthy gains and a fair bit of exhaust noise from a Diesel.
Can’t imagine an aftermarket exhaust with a DPF still intact would make it a worth while.
Ah bummer, shame that as they're rather nice imo
Yeap, other than the looks (subjective) it's looks far more "worn" in the bolsters than I'd expect for a 5 year 65k mile car - hell my 13 year 112k mile seats looked less creased.
In the real world a RWD 330d would be more fun to drive. The X drive is not good for handling but lots of people have modded the suspension on them to improve them.
Not sure the real world difference would be that noticeable and you can remap a 330d over 300hp if that's your thing.
Bonnet isn't straight.
Check for a front end knock.
could look at the volvo D6 hybrid diesel , 300bhp with the electric charged up
so you have a (melodic?) v5 - whether the mechanicals are robust, as its an early hybrid
C7 A6 biturbo diesel or all road, or A7 with the same engine?
Or even an A8 4.2 tdi/ 740d?
EDIT: how did I resurrect this old thread....
