My e70 and I’ll replace it with a Cayenne !

Cayenne make sure you get a good one and definitely make sure you get a bullet proof warranty.

Approve used or new  ;)

To eliminate the “Too much” or “someone getting a bargain snatch the arm off”  ;)

I’m open to sensible offers,

The extra bits, Tyres (x2), OEM roof bars, black grilles, Weathertec Rear mat & Spare wheel kit, I can sell separately but would rather sell with car (combined would be over a grand new)

The only sales pitch I’d add is that it won’t disappoint!

S815A Poor Road Package ?
That adds thicker Spring pads which could explain your anomaly

I ran (refreshed) the quote this morning
Cheapest is £304
Note the excess, £100 Voluntary, £350 Compulsary, breakdown cover was thrown in as repeat customer

There is price difference, if I run the same quote and require insurance today, it’ll come out more expensive, I changed the date to near end of month, price will come down...
Then there’s the Postcode thing
I normally wait for the renewal price, run the comparison sites and get a representive quote with the same level of cover, then phone up and discuss with a real person, requesting they price match or better, otherwise cancel renewal.
This year, surprisingly the renewal was cheaper, so I blagged the call to get Breakdown thrown in!
All I’d suggest is making the sure the policy is as per your requirements and read the fine print
I view Churchill as a reputable company though still read policy line by line!

I live in Aberdeen and know many people that rates them very highly
Does wonders with the M engines
Your correct, he is ex BMW
They just completed a gearbox swap on the neighbours 545, seemless work apparently!

2011 4.0d
This is the first year, the wife has not been on my insurance, primarily she never drives it, though this year it worked out cheaper, without her as named driver
43, full years NCD, £250 Excess, with all bells & Whistles including protected NCD courtesy car & (free) Breakdown cover, mileage Cap 6000miles

Churchill’s £318

Wasn’t the cheapest quote though did haggle - Hard

So was the experience good bad ?

Premier Motors in Hardgate have VERY good reviews and reasonable pricing

I favour Carly as above and have one!

However they recently changed the software and subscriptions so may be worth researching, I believe the old system had payfor upgrade, when they renewed the software they “put” an annual subscription onto the cost for new owners, whereas previous owners maintained they’re pay once subscription..

Certainly worth checking as I could be talking balony!

As per above, it’s not uncommon for the idrive / electronic Sensor to be faulty leading many to overfill
I prefer to use the dipstick, primarily as the electronics require sufficient run time to accurately read the level
Whilst it’s important to constantly for multiple reasons, I always do so by the dipstick,
Oil change on my 4.0d requires 6.5litres

Capacity is circa 6.7L though you never get it all out.
