    The difference between the 140 & 170 when I ordered mine was only about £40 per month.

    Likewise - it was that and the additional company car tax (another £40ish) that put me off the 170BHP

    can the rear diffuser be removed/changed to fit a twin exahust, or does the rear bumper have to be changed completely?

    At the time of ordering my car the 140bhp was around £68/mth whereas the 170 was around £130 /mth with Quattro at around £172 /mth. As you say the 140 bhp is 13% P11D value whereas the 170 is 17% P11D. Then the maintenance figs were higher on 170 too. I'm not knocking the 170 (or quattro's) but I didn't feel I could justify twice the monthy outlay for a bit more power and twin exhausts. I'm happy with my deal.:p

    Great photos Matt... looks just like ours apart from Roof rails. We are greatly impressed with the 2011 BE Quattro SB having had the 2008 (S-Line) and 2005 (Sport) versions previously.
    The Twin Exhausts make the rear look purposeful unlike the single job + they are bigger than the 2008 model.

    Our dislikes are few. Sat Nav is pretty poor and the womens voice is dire... 'Prepare to arrive at a Roundabout' WTF what does she expect you to do? Clean your shoes and comb your hair! Our economy is pretty good so far 40.7 average over 441 miles. Shame the B* Government will not cut fuel costs (especially Diesel) as in the rest of the EU.

    That was a mix of driving too - bit of town, bit of A/B road and about 50% motorway at the legal limit of course officer. I came home a different way (all dual carriage way and A road) and it touched 61mpg! What are you managing then Ibis?

    I would also say if you got an Ibis get some, no loads of Wax on the front bumper, they chip something rotten.

    seriously considering getting some of that film protection to cover it and help it out.
