Hi-I am thinking of buying a Ghibli S (UK) registered in December 2016 that has the updated infotainment system with 8.4-inch touchscreen display. Was this upgrade done at the same time as the switch to electric steering and engine tweak up to 424 bhp, or were these improvements in 2017? Finding it hard to see exactly what upgrades were done when. Thanks to anyone who knows for sure! Best wishes

The improvements came in dribs and drabs so its quite difficult. The easy one is the steering. Just look for the power steering fluid reservoir cap. (Or ask them to send you a pic of the engine bay). Obviously the elec power steering doesn't have this

Obvious but bloody good advice. I presume that the switch to electric steering is to allow things like lane assist so if a car has lane assist then it must have electric steering?

Thats what I read when I read the review. It was needed to have the assists

Many thanks! Have asked for a pic. Looking at reviews I'm pretty sure that steering went electric in 2017 not 2016, so this will still be hydraulic. It's not a deal breaker as TBH it is a good price-more a pre-upgrade price IYSWIM yet has the better infotainment system, and still in extended 5 yrs manufacturers warrant. Plus the colour I wanted (emozione blue!)

PS. Having sold my 4200 (below) and trading in the Beemer soot chucker we're about to be a one-car Mazza family!
