Rolling with laughter

Visited dealer twice since purchase for inclusive annual services and will be there for 3rd in Sep - after this I will be paying so might be time to change or just suck it up. I'm so used to not spending anything now it's going to hurt Laughing

It's a bit of a trek to selling dealer in Leeds but they've been so good it's worth a day out and we have been converted to the delights of Leeds Cool

100% reliability record since purchase apart from the squeaking seat fiasco I had early days with another dealer Rolling Eyes 

NOW GONE

Australia 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Fuji White
Winter Driver

This might sound silly but I don’t like driving the M3 in crappy weather, not for any other reason than it getting dirty. Being close to the beach the winter wind and rain can contain sandy particles. Driving her in crappy weather causing swirling on the sparkling graphite paintwork doesn’t bear thinking about.

I have been looking for a winter runaround. I thought about a PHEV like Muddy’s but the odd road trip, the need to have good rolling in gear acceleration to pass road trains weren’t compatible. I have been scouring the internet classifieds for a while. Would have loved another V8 Lux L320 but none around. X5, too expensive and way too high miles for my budget. Q5, OK but would need 3.0 TDI or 3.2 FSI, again budget constraint and some I saw had a patchy service history. ML er, no, not for me.

Then I stumbled on a one local owner 2013 A4 Allroad 2.0 TDI wrongly labelled as a TFSI (which only exist in the USA as far as I can see) by a local wholesale place. It appeals to my “car” rather than SUV phase and seems to be a 40k miles, school run car from the upmarket suburbs. A quick drive followed by some negotiation and it’s my new winter daily driver. In gear acceleration seems very good but will be improved with a remap. All in all, a good day’s shopping. 18 F80 M3 ZCP

2017 V8 SC - Gone after 11 months of ownership from new. Great engine surrounded by cheaply made parts.

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

A4 Allroad 2.0 TFSI is also available in the UK as my brother has one as his winter car for when the weather isn’t good enough or the journey is too long for his AH ME3000 or his Aston Martin Rapide. I hope you aren’t looking for too much excitement from it............ 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring
2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, the best car I have ever owned, totally reliable only a cou0le of rattles in 3 years, now no longer in my care
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

No, I get enough excitement from the M3. The A4 TDI has 170bhp here. I will probably look at a remap to get it up to 200 ish 18 F80 M3 ZCP
