Re: FL Exhaust doesn't burble on overrun or downshift?

Does your FL have the performance exhaust option? If so then you'll have an exhaust button on the dash. Press this (so it lights up) and the pops & burbles will ensue.
If you don't have the performance exhaust then kiss goodbye to that sound I'm afraid....

Re: Service B cost?

My service plan for 3 services paid over 36 instalments was a bargain at £30.83. There was a promo on at the time when I signed up.

Re: Gear box

One of my friends used to be Service Advisor at MB in Salisbury (now works at a BMW garage). She assures me the gearbox failure rate is the same on both PFL and FL A45 models. The myth is that it only affects the FL model but it's simply because more people bought the FL than the PFL so the number o...

Re: New A45S

I would rather they just stuck to making a decent handling car with "sufficient" power. If highest bhp and fastest (on-paper) 0-62 time was all that mattered to them, they'd ditch the 4matic system and just make it a lighter 2wd car. But it's balance, agility and traction make it a joy to use in the...

Re: New A45S

That’s a shame hardly going to worry an rs3 or similar Like some one else said a decent map on the current a45 will be the same. I was hoping for a step up. Why are people so obsessed with how many hp the RS3 has? If the A45S comes out with 450hp you can bet your bottom dollar that the RS3 will get...

Re: ceramic brake pads.

Wholeheartedly agree with you about avoiding EBC - they are over-hyped rubbish. Personally I run Ferodo DS2500 fast race pads on most of my fleet and they're about the most impressive stopping I have found of any pad on the market. That said they do generate a plentiful amount of dust but I figure t...

Re: Gear Selector

The facelift model gets the larger one as standard - so it can be a sign that the car you're looking at is the newer version.
