So, the 520d has been amazing. I love it. Sasha loves driving it, but… It’s not big enough for us.
Number 1 son is 6’6", number 1 daughter is 6’. Sasha is 5’8" and I’m 6’8". If I’m driving, whoever is behind me is fucked. If Sasha drives it kinda works, but it rules out the big road trips we want to do (Scotland and European tours) next year.
We tried an E class and an XC90 and neither work. The latter was also tres spendy to get in a decent one.
So, a mate has an A8, which is expensive to run but cheap to buy. Has anyone run a 7 series, S class or A8 for any length of time. Is it the world of £hurt£ i imagine it to be, or are there ways for mere mortals to run one?
Just to give you an idea, I’ve been servicing a £347 a month lease on the bimmer, with £55 a month insurance and almost no tax (£30). Tyres are run flats at £200 a corner unless you want to run your family on magic lucky number 8 tyre company ditchfinder 3000s.
Would like to lower the tyre bill too.
