    Are you sure it isn't a pocket roulette game you have bought?
  2. Getting side steps fitted on an Outlander?

    I ain't got a feckin' clue mate.
  3. Getting side steps fitted on an Outlander?

    Most people call it abuse!
  4. Getting side steps fitted on an Outlander?

    I would have thought anyone who knows which end of a spanner to use could do it.
  5. Audi A8 tyre size issue

    It will increase the rolling diameter of the wheel so will (fractionally) reduce acceleration & (fractionally) if the car can red line in top gear will (fractionally) increase top speed. It will fractionally reduce revs/mph although your speedo will still read the same for a given revs.
  6. Audi A8 tyre size issue

    Yes, by 2.5% of 245mm = 6mm.
  7. Leasing for Dummies?

    Nice unfortunately, it is powered by the juice of Satan!
  8. But then thinking about it that is probably standard really.
  9. I realise they are only covering their own, but you never know it may help.
  10. This was hit no3.
  11. 0.23 seconds of googles time gave this as no1 hit.
  12. Sorry, yes I see what you mean now, I misread & thought it was the end of a co. car & wanting insurance afterwards. Ignore me & my old-timers disease.
  13. Have you tried finding out who her current co. car is insured with as they will have her on record as not claiming?
  14. engine upgrades

    Wouldn't you be better off speaking to them as they broke it due to incompetence?
  15. engine upgrades

    You can pretty much (assuming it will fit) swap any engine for any other, the issue is how much work/adaptation will be required. ECU will be different but if it has the same socket & input pin-out it could be easy, if not it could be hard. The same could be true of ANY plug/socket/nut/bolt anywhere in the engine bay & the most (apparently) simple job can easily grow arms, wings, legs horns & turn into a nightmare. This would beg me the question why? If you just want an update it would be MASSIVELY simpler, quicker & cheaper to change the car. At least doing it that way you don't then have the issue of insurance, because if you don't tell them, they will disown you when you need them the most and potentially cost you your sanity, wallet and even freedom massively.
