Re: Jittering 50-70mph

+1 to that. 50 to 70 is the typical speed range when wheel balance shows out of true. And coming through the steering wheel, would appear to be the fronts wheels are out. I wouldn't rule out the rear wheels on a 4WD car. My RWD 5-series had this problem once and the rear wheels needed balancing. Th...

Re: Stupid! Locked keys in car.....not a good thing to do.

So in hindsight it may have been better to break the rear passenger glass? A quick search shows them listed at about £100, and if anything like most cars it's a quite simple task to fit.

Re: Ex Porsche Chauffeur/Taxi Vehicles

I've advised my preference is for the facelift version to avoid transfer box issues ... I don't think there's any guarantee that the 'facelift' version (or Macan 2) will not have transfer box issues.

Re: What's your budget?

Without trying to give too much away I seem to feel comfortable spending approx 25% of my annual income on a car but as soon as it rises to 30% I can't justify it.....annoying trait to have!
