I've not measured it yet, but it does seem very good on fuel, must be knocking on the door of 40mpg, at the moment i'm still giving it a good blasting and its working, it flies now, really smooth, better than a K series
Spoken to one of the techs at work and we are going for a PCM update next time i'm in the area, with 15 ish different versions of software alone there is bound to be an improvement, its not really an issue in normal driving though.
In the absence of any decent Activa's or V6's at the moment i've been looking at different cars.
My dad has just purchased a Volvo V70 2.5 SE in silver, W plate, 86k on the clock and history. Its typical brick estate, and i really like it So much so, that i have been looking on the bay for one, a T5 of course!
They are really silly money right now, i could get a really nice one for just under 1k, and that is very tempting!
The missus has even been convinced, although the coupe C70 T5 would be more to her taste, its more what comes up at the time.
With 300bhp potential and that great 5 pot burble, the full armchair like leather heated seats, the comfort and solid build, its something i am seriously looking at, unless anyone wants to sell me their Activa?
