    When I made a £15k claim my insurance went from £500 to £700. Edit: I had protected NCB as well

    That’s because it has more torque than a weedy petrol engine.

    Diesel is still the fuel of choice when you look at actual emissions on the new test regime, compare 540i to 530d in the G30 Feb 2017 drip down: http://carfueldata.dft.gov.uk/search-new-or-used-cars.aspx We are being talked out of diesel by the press, but a good diesel will produce less particulates than the equivalent petrol engine, purely because diesel has been developed more than petrol in the last few years. It would be a shame to lose all that development and testing just because I’ll informed ministers and the tabloids don’t like diesel. Read Autocar and they tell you that there is still nothing like a big diesel in a Range Rover or an X5 where hybrids simply do not work. Do your homework before deciding petrol is best as I don’t think diesel is dead yet.

    I did mine last year and used the Gladen custom fit stuff with a 6 channel Mosconi amp. I also used 10 sheets of dynamat in the doors and boot to suppress the road noise. New mids and added tweeters to the door mirror sails: New mids and added tweeters to the rear: Had to cut the door panel for the tweeter (scary) Mosconi amp: 8" subs under the seats: And Dynamat to the doors and boot:

    That is the exact spec I would go for, I've been looking at the last edition 67/18 reg cars, they all have decent spec and can be had for £38K as an AUC. I would probably find the ride good as well seeing as I'm running 21's at present. Just the small matter of a £14K deficit to find first.

    I’ll add EGR coolers to that list. At least they don’t have runflats to moan about. Im a member of the Audi A2 forum and it’s a great place to be.

    You will need spacers with staggered 351’s on a touring.

    I have an LCi and the gearbox is better, it predicts the gear changes via the nav information and its generally just better.

    Yeah, my mate has a 63 reg M5 and the interior is very ordinary.

    There is a value line kit available, but not sure about the bigger engine models. Mine has sat at 2300 miles for the last 6 months!
