It will be very similar I would have thought yes.

Is it still behaving itself @The CO ?
Not really, no. I'll have to update my thread but in essence it's just had some fuel lines replaced and was back home for 10 days before the airbag light came on, something wrong with the loom on the right hand side. Another week in the dealer.
@The CO - Do you have the car back now or is it back in again?
@The CO - wow you must be getting close to changing the car by now?
I think if I'd been at home I'd have lost the plot by now, I wrote a formal letter to the dealer last week asking for a refund. JLR offered me an extra years warranty and a full tank of fuel (yes, really) and I told them to poke it. The dealer won't give us a refund, I know that, so we'll end up going to the Ombudsman. Well all's said and done, I actually really like the car but it just keeps fecking breaking all the time. Such a shame.
Sorry to hear that. It must be so frustrating.
Fingers crossed - your claim goes through.
Not good Ian, fortunately there’s two sides to the story and hopefully Porsche rectify timely
Ultimately, it’s a well known issue & reported issue, so shouldn’t be too long!
Sorry to hear of your woes Kleynie (and the CO)
Back to Bimmers then gents?
Not a chance, unless they start making a 340i touring with decent seats and air suspension
The Porsche extended warranties are not cheap, but can be worth their weight in gold. I have seen a few horror stories of 10k repairs.
My business partners first Panamera was in Porsche for 52 days in one visit, he had only had it a month. For most of the time it was quarantined away from everything whilst Porsche Germany decided WTF was up with it. A new hybrid battery in the end.
Hopefully it gets sorted sharpish.
I’ve now get a Q5 loaner for 21 days, so I’m told. It’s a crappy 2 litre though, not exactly what I expected
Whats funny is enterprise don't seem to understand why your not so happy with the higher end hire car.
I shouldn’t complain I suppose, but if I wanted a two litre I would have bought one. Still, it’s better than the Renault Capture loaner I had from Admiral a couple of years back.
It will get you to where you're going, but absolutely no 'Posing' value.
Petrol or diesel?
If the petrol it is 250bhp and quick.
I hope it gets fixed quickly Ian and does not taint your initial good experience with it
Well, it’s not all bad, quite a good spec Q5, no folding mirrors though.
