    The Tesla's have some nice toys but the model S is a pimped mondeo lookalike and the X is compromised for seating. And when you spec a nice one (decent range = more powerful) here in the UK you're into 100k plus territory.

    I'm also increasingly disturbed by the complexity and potential for costly repairs in the diesel emissions systems now. Basically the relatively "simple" diesel engine has had a bunch of stuff added into the emissions systems that means it will break expensively much sooner than anything mechanical will fail. I love the way good diesel engines drive on the road (i.e. great mid-range grunt) but I think the bell has rung on the last round. VW group can blame themselves for providing a bunch of ammunition which means that the anti-diesel lobbyists can always point back at diesel-gate and wag their fingers.

    An interesting observation......while gearbox is in "S" mode, the start/stop system is deactivated. This was not the case on my 2014 BiTdi.

    Same in my 2017 Bitdi. S mode means no start stop.
    I've also only just noticed the gear selection between S and D is jerky in S and smooth in D, to the point you hardly notice it change. I'm not sure why it's jerky in S... surely a nice smooth change is better than a jerky one in any driving mode.

    Same on mine. But as it never was jerky on my BiTdi I put it down to the S Tronic gearbox.

    I have a spare set I would happily get rid off!

    Bought for the rear doors but wont fit as I have the B&O system..... they do however fit fine if you have standard or the Bose system.

    It's barely noticeable, just you can feel the change compared to D which is silky smooth. I only notice it if I'm driving 'gently' in S mode.

    Ref the ring lights, they're pretty cheap over here with postage so you might be better to flog them in Germany to recoup your money.

    Hehe...no problem, I am in the UK every 2-4 weeks so no worries there. Just happy if they find a nice home. Don't fit daughters A3 unfortunately....

    Just returned from north Essex to Cologne on one tank! Not bad, I am actually highly impressed!

    In numbers, it did it at only 8.8l/100km = 34mpg

    (Ignore the Capital UK - used TuneIn and the mileage driven since zeroed (forgot to zero it).
