This is possibly a first Ken!
Understandable? Yes in my book, but probably not in most others.
Perhaps the answer might lie in the effect this tuning is going to have on the insurance premium.
Any suggestions, after having my old 1990 coupe for 21 years i finally let it go.
i purchased a 64 plate s6 with 28000 on the clock.
to be honest finding it a Little too quick,wondering whether its me being 56 or something else.
So i stuck on a rolling road at my local tuning center,they informed me off a few unknown changes 520 bhp and 710 torque !!
am struggling a little in dynamic,should i get put back to standard setting or get the tongue reduced to some thing more manageable,or give myself time to get used to it.
Thank goodness we are all different, and I applaud your views on being prepared to commit to live with a car for 3 years biased on taking a liking to the car’s interior, and indeed that view has stood you in good stead over the years. You can’t knock that. Probably wouldn’t do for the majority, but....
Even a 20 minute ‘spin around the block’ will surely give a potential owner a feel for the car’s performance and ride, and it now follows that this car’s performance must now be in question in your mind, and I just wonder how much other owner’s views will go towards actually reversing your decision if their experience is not too positive. No doubt they will be positive and all will be fine.
Many thanks Robert,
No doubt SQ5 owners will share their experiences, but if indeed you are getting approx. 17k per set then I wouldn’t have thought that was too unreasonable.
However, if the car has only covered 34k miles from new, and the first set lasted longer than 17k then obviously you will know how this set of Pirelli s have performed compared with the originals.
