    Yea, it looks nice, but must be something up with it. So I'll skip it.

    Considering he’s looking at Barried F30s, I don’t think brand new S4s are on his list :p

    Although he could import a petrol one from the US ;)

    No, I’d imagine not, unfortunately.

    I’d be wary of that horrendous leather interior! :eek:

    Badum tush! I've been lucky, the previous owner ticked them on the spec sheet when new.

    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.

    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.

    C7 A6 biturbo diesel or all road, or A7 with the same engine?
    F10 535d?
    Or even an A8 4.2 tdi/ 740d?

    EDIT: how did I resurrect this old thread....
