    They all come with the same single diesel engine but I suspect as it's trying to shift a continent then economy suffers slightly.

    Thanks four letter word for that ever since you got that white shyte from Bavaria I have been biting me tongue ever since, The four letter word where you thinking !!! welcome back to normality.

    As for invading the House of Saud for fuel those days are gone as they will be soon extinct as the dinosaurs which left their fossils a millions of years ago.

    I think they are built in Japan also? Not the most refined but seems well screwed together. The BMW was already starting to form rattles. I'll miss the performance but then at least I'll keep my licence lol

    Lol it wasn't that bad a car to be fair but I would say £30k absolute tops, not.shy of £40k though .

    Went to top up the washer fluid for the front (rear has a separate tank) and spotted the location of the air intake which is reassuring for those deep puddles!

    Two Shoguns in a week, what is this a gypsy takeover? :Laughing:

    Looks great though, love the Shoguns, put some more specs and pics up.

    How come you changed cars?

    The lease will be up in about a year and a half so I'll need to decide what to do. Can't get this again as the bik tax is huge. Quite like the price, specs and look of the Volvo XC60D5 (220) SE Nav AWD but still have my eye on the PHEV Outlander. Maybe a CR-V hybrid will come along by then?

    As a company car - just from a cost perspective - the Outlander PHEV is virtually impossible to beat for a car of that size. The BIK bill is tiny!

    I've never taken a company car personally, as I've never been able to make the numbers work vs taking the cash alternative - but the Mitsubishi would come closest if I wanted something of comparable size to my CR-V.

    You have got to be bloody kidding me! The damn recycling centres locally all have height restriction bars of 1.8m. I'm 80mm too high. 80 sodding mm. The commercial entrances all shut before 5pm.

    Need to find one without a bar! Grrrrrr
