    BMW 435d Xdrive.

    currently got a 335d f30 which I am going to sell... the 4 looks better than the 3, but like the 3 will need some lowering springs to fix the jacked up stock ride height, this improves the handling, without you get a lot of body roll... it's a comfy car, quick off the mark but being diesel feels a bit soulless, the new 3 series is out in a month or 2 this will affect the prices. personally, I prefer DSG to the zf8 gearbox in the BM, the integration is better on the VAG's overall it's a good car but it's not that great on fuel tbh i get mid 40's, I could probably get more if I didn't use the power but then I would have just bought an 320d. how many miles is your friend doing?

    Selling my R..What next?

    I'm in a similar boat to you in the market for a new car, had a 7.5 which I got rid of a little too early, was going to place an order for a new estate but been slightly put off by the wltp changes (no dual injection) so waiting/exploring other options, cars i have been looking at include Cupra 4drive st - can get a 2018 under 10k miles pre wltp for 24-25k (dcc standard + leather) - financially this is a good option - bang for buck s3 saloon fl -really like the look of these so classy, for me virtual cockpit is a must, (mag ride is standard on the saloon!) CLA 45 shooting brake or saloon - hmmm with the new fancy dash models due out, i know id regret it TTS Mk3 - hairdresser? i need a wagon / fast family car m140i / m240i - sound lovely but not sold, the interior is so dull I then started looking at older cars RS4 avant b8 4.2 v8! -v8 but I want a turbo!! i might test drive this to see how it feels, C63 amg - muscle car, but how does it handle?? to summerise, there are lots of cars in the price range cars but I do still keep coming back to the R. take your time and explore your options,
  6. its the same engine, so it won't be "worse" without the dual injection carbon build can/may be an issue for the future, it's not impossible to fix but it is extra maintenance

    I agree I wouldn't pay over new price, some prices are silly atm. All in all is kinda disappointing how things have panned out

    Depends how long you want to keep it, I'd rather a 310 with the dual injection

    Is that £30 using dealer finance? Which is like 10%. You can get personal loans as low as 3% will probably end up cheaper

    Lease as in personal contract hire? Choice should be easier how long you keeping the car 2/3 years? I wouldn't worry about the wlpt changes If you order a new car now it'll be a 300, with the new spec.
  12. Is the engine code the same in th cupra 300? I presume so, not sure how to check
  13. Nice video here giving some as advise.
  14. I've had older cars where you'd have to give it a "blast" to make sure the cat was hot. A pass is a pass tho
