    Engine Temperature Control

    Tried the same thing myself last weekend. Most I could get was 49.8 and that was on a long steep downhil slope going at 55mph:crazy:

    Engine Temperature Control

    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.

    Engine Temperature Control

    Hi Folks 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. I mentioned to my local mechanic that I'd noticed the car's temperature had gotten a little hot last time I was stuck in traffic on a hot day...

    Winter tyres fitted by Wheels In Motion

    Fair point, but for some reason I just thought the winter tyres would be noisier on the motorway, no particular reason why :dk:

    Winter Tyres

    Interestingly they only do 17" wheels for my car, I'm currently running 18" so not a like for like comparison. For what it's worth: 17" Design B Wheels - £370 Continental TS180S - £760 Plus VAT Total = £1130

    Just rang my dealer for a quote (suggest you sit down for the next bit) - 4 winter tyres and alloys (18") - £1989.98 :eek::eek::eek: - Thought he was making an offer on my car! Totally lost my train of thought after that, forgot to even ask what tyres they were:crazy:

    What should the next step be??

    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...

    Redex vs V-Power ??

    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....
