    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I agree, I've coded them off (remember last setting) on the last 4 cars I've had with it on. I reckon it's a conspiracy, much like the whole EV balls.

    I had a 2014 508 SW in a GT version, it was a 2.2 200ish bhp iirc and went OK. They dumbed them down after that version iirc.

    Personally I have no issue buying the derv, the last petrol car I had was a mondeo back in 1997. I see the panic buying of petrol just makes the diesel better value. I certainly wouldn't rule out a petrol in the search for a new car providing it had the right spec and number of cylinders etc. I change mine reasonably regularly so if I was keeping the car then maybe I'd give it some more thought.

    Common on all SS cars AFAIK, certainly the company Skodas/KIA's, the wife's VW's and my Audi do it, rarely notice on mine as I coded it off. As I'm sure you already know, SS can also be overridden by gentle breaking when stopping, or releasing the brake slightly when stood.

    Yeah, in year one they had a box on and we paid c£1200 using the Mrs policy and no claims as she had a company car. We put the daughter as the main driver (as she was) and were straight with them regarding use etc. Both mine passed within 2 weeks of each other but the lad was only 18 so he lifted the premium quite a bit. We were with smart wheels (even after I'd read the shocking reviews) and they earned quite a bit of cash back through the scores (£180 iirc) but the box made them quite anxious about driving imo so they were glad to be rid of it last year. They only did a few K miles and the lad only got marked down once for speed for doing 26 in a 20, the sign had been removed but it was still painted on the road.

    I got a quote for the lad just to prove a point a few months ago and it was over £6k lol, picanto and 68bhp is fine for him for now...

    We have an Admiral multi car policy, my A7 insured for me and the Mrs for 30k pa Inc business use, I20 insured for the Mrs for 10k pa and a picanto insured for my 2 kids (20 and 22 18 months experience) for 6k pa and I pay £1024. I called them last week and they knocked it down from £1200. We'll be adding another picanto to it shortly when the daughter moves to Birmingham as they are quoting c£400 less for her than any other insurers (brum is c£1600 for her mainly due to the postcode) Highly recommended thus far, and I do always tout about for the insurance as I'm never loyal to anyone because they will bend you over as soon as you stop shopping around ime.

    G32 Warranty Work Needed

    Agreed and I always say build a good trusting relationship with an indi and speak to the guy with the spanner in his hand. I do use dealers for bits but I would look outside to check if they said good morning.

    G32 Warranty Work Needed

    Dealer aside (I personally have never had a good dealer experience across all marques) that's a concerning number of issues on any car of that age, never mind cost. Glad you have it sorted and are enjoying the car.

    This has got to stop!

    Not a fan of black wheels, but that looks lovely.

    G31 Bad odour/smell after rain

    Could it be a sulphur smell from the washers? You would only smell it when they spray and a flush with Milton or similar usually works
