Notice in the first 2 shots how the clock's buttons between the gauges are different.
Which version will we get? Good question.
to see 'first hand' if you should allow the car's engine to run longer when you reach
your destination after a spirited drive, so as to have the turbo oil reach 'cool down'
before shutting the engine down. Why a 'timer gauge' and 'boost gauge' was decided
upon instead of 'oil pressure' and 'water temperature' being available at a glance
must be a 'Porsche thing'? If I get a chance to visit Lady Gavonga I will ask her about
contacting the 'spirit world' to pose the quetions to Ferdie Porsche. The last time she
read my hand I was informed to 'beware of things falling from the sky' and she was
'right on', for later that afternoon we had a heavy 'hail like' rain. Just goes to prove
that it pays to seek out professionals when seeking information.
The mini. Most unreliable car we've had in years. Had various Audi (a4 to TT) fom 1996 till the mini in 2008 with no issues and hardly ever an unscheduled service Audi no longer has a car we are interested in Mistake on the mini it's not a cheap car at $34k either. Too bad as it handles well just the motor and other bits are crap. The beetle is appealing to us as it has a variation of the 2.0 we had no issues with. Maybe if mini sources an engine from someone other than Peugeot we would still consider. The Beetle is looking good to us especially at its lower price point. And no run flat tires!
Interesting. I know very little about Minis. There are a lot of them in my area but I've never known anyone who's had one. My mechanic is not a fan, so I just never investigated further. We are all very hopeful about the newest Beetle, and its drivetrain is tried and true. We spend a great deal of time comparing the turbo model to the GTI in this, consensus being it is only slightly tamer. I look forward to someday getting your opinion vs. TT and A4.
told it wouldn't be in the cars. Never a true explanation as to why....just silent treatment from
the powers that be. We can't even be told if an existing harness exists in the cars. You would
think they feel it was information that was ' top secret '.
