  1. I've had my 2016 estate since new and very little issue wise to date touch wood. Leaking rear door speaker seals and gearbox actuator replaced, both common and known issues. Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  2. my mk7 estate would normally be around 300 mark, sometimes less than 300 I.e 280 or a bit higher if more short runs or over 300 maybe 330 to 340 if longer runs. this is still similar now I'm stage 1 discounting any enthusiasm Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  3. no problem, good luck. mine has been fine since I sorted that part Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  4. I still have the pedal box on mine. horrible if I turn it off so tune hasn't sorted that for me, not sure if that's because it's self tune rather than going to see Rick but... Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks Rick, any news on the TCU tune via the self tune method? be good to get this done via same unit to save me the trip to see you [emoji3] Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  6. exactly, 4 people in car, a 20kg tent and camping stuff, plus roof box the extra 80bhp or so really comes in handy, some would say essential to ensure it's not dangerous up hills etc, slowing people down too much behind. Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  7. perfect family wagon, stage one also helps you take more family kit with you, wink wink... Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  8. cant comment on the dog part but the camping part is no probs Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  9. yes seems great value to me. My maths obviously I haven't sold yet but if I take WBAC as average 21k for mine at present not taking into account great condition and couple of options that puts me at £131 a month based on the fact its just over 64 months old, April 2016 reg date. I did get what I thought was a good deal when purchased new but never thought I would be at that kind of figure. Obviously will be paying well over odds for new and prob used car, decent c43 even 2019's are over 40k at present with premium plus pack or m340i around same 40-45k for 2020 reg Sent from my SM-G991B usin
  10. in my head an estate as found the R estate useful on so many occasions. Heart wise saloon as there are many more available for both those cars used at present and better looking, but think I might regret it the first time something doesn't fit in boot or next holiday etc. Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  11. yes it's crazy Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  12. that's cool then, I'm shopping at min, have c43 and m340i on list for new daily, only one car for me I'm afraid so needs to do both jobs to a point, leaning towards c43 at present simply because of the emotional experience I.e better sound. all sound I think the m340i is the better choice but can't bring myself round to that as yet, making a decision this week in if to put R up for sale, will be a sad day as still live the car, only 30k on it and stage 1 so plenty quick enough and makes decent noise from stock exhaust Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  13. maybe a m340d would be an option for the family daily or s4 eatate with you theb putting more miles in that if you have a weekend/more sports focused 2nd car. Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  14. surprised you didn't get out with DA in hand Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
  15. thanks for that very helpful, couldn't do the grill so would have to be m340i, I do like the new cla35 shooting brake, bur can't stretch to a 45 so would be similar performance to stick 7R which would feel slow for me now and sound won't be great either, but could go brand new cla35 shooting brake compared with 1 year / 18 month old m340i or c43. so hard Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk
