Thank you, it’s a different beast compared to the Audi.

A 2014 B8 100kW 2 litre diesel.
A decent family car but painfully boring to drive.

The 3.0 V6 quattro are ment to be good , then get Bobby Singh to do some work..

The BM's and Audi's surprisingly were late to the 2.0+ bitdi party .

The VW equivalent being the Passat 2.0 bi-tdi 4motion with 240 .

Yes they are better but it’s something to do with the front wheel set up coupled with the boat like handling.

The second car will be a 335d touring, you can’t beat a straight six.

Not S-line then ?

The BM auto gearbox will be a darn site quicker than these lazy slush jobbies .

Hi Ben and welcome to the forum. From your input already on other threads, it looks as though you are going to be a useful member to have around. :)

Yes I can’t quite put my finger on why, the build quality was very good, but that’s the best thing I can say about it.

Just the same, everything was well bolted together ( arguably better than MB or BMW) , nothing to fault but just couldn’t relate to it.
