    yes it certainly is and lovely spot, as you know it's not far for me. The diesel is fine for me and pottering about in the auto is great and it really does get along when I'm in a hurry. Any faster than that required, I'll then take a T-5R.

    Quicker than you'd think, especially if it's wet. Ours goes well being 185 e4, mapped, no cat, no dpf and no egr.

    Even with all the miles on it nicci would rather drive it than her car, wish I'd spent more on it rather than a cheap car.

    If it behaves itself, then I think there will always be room in my fleet for one, absolutely love it and it's such effortless motoring, only a 163hp but did well towing a heavy car transporter with an 854 t-5 on. Got it first parking fine on that run too.......grrrr

    BMW don't actually make the box though and, to be fair, I seriously doubt that the automatic gearbox that volvo were using in 2005 would be able to deal with 412lb/ft of torque either

    Probably not...but it still doesn't encourage me to buy a German tank...I am sorry yours broke though..

    Polestar puts out 380lbs (although a couple of reviews on Dyno showed 405lbs) which is a 2005 designed box.

    Ian has a tuned one that's still ok on std box, but tbh I'm guessing not too much more to be had.
