    Very cheap F456

    I had a manual 1995 456 for 5 years and was very expensive to run. Mine had 25k miles when i got it and had about 35k when i sold it. Engine was very good and no real problems other than leaking valve cap gaskets. I had to do a full gearbox rebuild because of reverse cog ring snapping one day...

    QP V 2009 (FL) with Bose, sound quality

    My 2005 QP sound quality is pretty good BUT the volume seems to somewhat adjust to the engine revs, with some lag and that IS irritating

    Cat D and Automatic. May go a bit further up towards the end but wouldn't expect by much.

    2005 QP - 44.5k miles - £11.5k

    I know and to be honest the list of works done to the car is not even complete. I even spent just over £1000+ just 2 months ago to sort out some cosmetic niggles the car had (parallel parking knocks sucked out, small paint bubble on the base of the rear view mirrors, new badge). I'm not even...

    Cheap long term storage

    I've been paying £60pm renting privately a space on an underground ventilated compound not far from where i live in London. Not museum condition but more than adequate. This is where i used to keep the QP but the 4C is occupying the space now. The problem is these are not coming by all to often.

    Cheap long term storage

    I'm looking for dry storage but not necessarily dehumidified. Don't want to have it exposed to elements but equally it is not a 70 year old investment grade garage queen.

    Cheap long term storage

    Any suggestion for a cheap long term storage? If I don't sell my car i will SORN and leave for next summer.

    Hello! Thinking a QP is more reliable than Merc CL or V8 BMW

    I've spent the summer near my uncle's 325td (2008 reg) and is indeed very well build and effective. I can only imagine whats it would be like if chipped to M3 levels of power and more torque. Looks aside, comparing to the QPV the BMW works a lot better as a daily driver as it is smaller/nimble...

    Hello! Thinking a QP is more reliable than Merc CL or V8 BMW

    I think the nearest BMW to the QPV ethos is the previous M5 (E60 most likely with SMG box). Highly strung engines mated with sequential gearbox and lots of space.
