Yes indeed, quite agree.
As a followup as I was doing a long journey this weekend, I decided to see how much I could stretch the MPG to. Best I could manage was 49.8 on a long (steep) downhill stretch at just under 60mph.
Been a while, but good to be back. Thought I'd post a story about my experiences at my last service and the benefits of a working thermostat.

sorry to hear about your troubles, hope it gets sorted, it's a wonderful car. As Timskemp says put everything in writting, be open and honest and consider putting in a reasonable time to respond/fix.
I agree the air suspension is worth it, if I had to replace my car I'd certainly want it in...
Started using it soon after I got the car, mainly to see what the benefits were. Kept on using it because it reduced the amount of smoke comming out the back under hard acceleration. I guess it's become habit now, but too expensive a habit, hence the question around is it worth it....
