So far no major electrical problems but every thing he says about it looking like a an ordinary diesel but going like a (very smooth and comfortable) rocket when you want it to I can confirm. I too like German cars but the Lag is much more enjoyable and also uses less fuel.

The insurance is only slightly more than my BMW525 but the economy is much better.

I started off looking for something economical and started looking at diesels, then decided on a 2litre petrol but I am delighted I finally got a 3.0l.
I just did a nice run in mine.... Berkhamsted, Heathrow, Reading, Bristol, Berkhamsted, Bristol, Southampton, Reading, Berkhamsted, Reading, Heathrow, Berkhamsted. A few hundred miles as you can see done mostly at Mway speeds but quite a bit in town and Aroads too. It is currently showing me 32.7mpg and that is not at all bad for a 210bhp V6 3ltr racing pony.

What do you think?
Currently in vass20's garage:
