After several months of dithering and searching I've found the car for me, an E60 LCI 535D SE with a non stratospheric mileage and a decent price!...
Coming from a 2010 Octavia VRS (petrol) so it will be quite a change but have had a thing for the E60 for some time and love the idea of the surge of the big oilburner.... Have also had a Focus ST in the past but havent owned a bigger class of car since my old Volvo 850 T5R!
Sure I'll have plenty of questions to come and no doubt I'll be doing lots of reading... already found the audio upgrade thread which led me here!
Will be running a book on how long it takes me to resist the remap!
PS a\nyone want to buy a Skoda!
