Im obviously more of a frugal driver than I thought Just shows the bigger the engine, the better?R9UKE wrote: Thanks, looking forward to finally dragging it out of it's spot
To be honest, 28 isn't far off what I expected. 30 would have been spot on by my estimations. My 2.0 does 33 MPG, it's a bigger engine but doing less work, the revs also sit considerably lower as you can have it in 6th at 35 MPH comfortably. But then Mum's aim seems to be to get to the speed limit as quickly as possible - always has been! So I'm guessing it's about right. It's not unusual to see 1.4 owners getting 26 MPG
Drove the 540i a good 50 miles today and no warning. Didn't get a chance to check the coolant level afterwards as the tank has to be opened to check, and I didn't have time to stick around.
Chris, the Safrane just couldn't stick around for long I'm afraid. I had just bought the Beemer and literally had no room. It worked out very well though, can't ask better than for it going to a good friend who'll love and cherish it until they offer it back to you when they're bored! It's already had a set of new track rod ends!
I spotted this on ebay and am very tempted to sell the 540i and keep piling the miles onto this. Hitting 250k in a Vel Satis is bound to merit some sort of award??

Well thats not bad then, if the Saf has gone to a Renault enthusiast and you might get the chance to get it back again.
That Velsatis looks tempting, probably go for very little money too. The 2.0T is a good one too, isn't it? Go buy it
