Even though I've never tried Marmite I know that I don't like (would never let my kids try than excuse). Anyway I really like the pics X6john - always liked that colour combi on Beemers.

I must say though that it looks a bit low - is there something wrong with the suspension? (!) :P

Still keen on this S8. Surely I can get 20mpg out of it if I'm doing 34 out of a 535d?

Well with the P-tronic box now on the X6, I got 32.8 MPG mixed driving with some bursts of power thrown in, so pleased as it's covered 125 Miles only.

I had the new S8 V10 for a week, and the economy was horrendous (15 MPG) poodling around, the Older S8 I owned and got 25 MPG regular :grin:, so depends on which model ya go for. V10 a NO NO.

Looks ok to me .. little tip ... cut out some clear plastic circles for the fog lights .. they don't have to be the complete area ... will save them getting broken ..

I am a big fan of Deep Sea Blue, looks good on the 5 and 6 aswell. Those alloys make it look the part, the ones I saw on another X6 didn't really do it any favours. Looking good though, glad you like it :)

Well I have covered 700 Miles now and the economy with the P-Tronic Box is up from 30.7 MPG to 32.8 MPG motorway work, power very strong now, managed a 0-60 of 6.39 Secs at snetterton a week or so ago, feels quicker now though. :D
