    To be on safe side you will need 5 quarts as 4 usually fills to lower part of dipstick, so 5x£13.50 plus delivery £6.99

    Hello. Unfortunately, I don't own a VR-4 yet. However, I am working on a project to convert 2.5L to 2.5L TT. I need advice. The first thing that would help me: is there a workshop manual for VR-4? Thanks.

    Definitely do a pressure test in my opinion! Major issues will show themselves before you reach any kind of significant pressure. Without doing this, you'll not know if you're chasing your tail looking at other symptoms. Stick your bung into the rubber hose coming from the Y piece to the intercooler. Most common leaks are intercooler, plastic intake elbow, recirculating blow off valve, throttle body, intake plenum, and injector seals.

    Personally, I figure that the peak cylinder pressure is upwards of 1000psi at high load, so 30psi probably won't do much harm. I never had any trouble as a result. However you make your own decision on that, as you have to live with the outcome.

    As some have pointed it’s not safe to pressure test our engines. How can I pressure test the intake manifold and plenum only?. If I open the oil cap won’t It be releasing all the pressure form there ? Some valves will always be open. So I will be sending all the pressure to the exhaust or past the pistons. That won’t let me build the pressure correct ?

    I think that "rose tinted" is a good term. I'm not going to suggest that a model 3 will scratch the same petrolhead itch that a Ferrari or whatever does. However, there's good reason that I cited the 330i several times as a comparison. The 330i is not the Enthusiast's machine it once was. Where maybe there was an enthusiast argument for a sonorous naturally aspirated i6 and 6-speed manual, that's not what the 330i is anymore. It's just another 2.0 4-cyl turbo with an auto and fake noise...

    I wanted a charger at home but with two cars on the drive (Galant and a Evo) has no space for the i3 so I can charge it from the mains takes time but like you said when it parked you are not useing so it ok I do charge at the 50kw charger when I can and also mine has the range extender engine so I can’t really be out of power and so far never run out of charge :)

    Cracking read Isaac. Really good to have a proper objective review. I know the march that way is inexorable, and there is a certain rose-tinted view of ICE, especially for petrolheads. We should probably have one ourselves, but the main barrier is the initial outlay required. Your review has given us food for thought (I've been boring Amy senseless, er, I mean, discussing the finer points of your lengthy tome with her!), especially with you saying you were surprised to find it within...

    I have a 7kW podpoint. It was actually included as part of purchasing the Leaf, and we paid £95 extra to have a 7kW instead of a 3.6kW unit installed. The leaf could not make use of the extra, but I knew that a future vehicle would. After I sold the Leaf I swapped the type 1 cable to type 2, which cost me a total of £25 to do.

    I have had a BMW i3 for nearly four years now and I love it I also love my Galant ,but got the i3 as a replacement for the diesel fiesta that I brought new in 2011 (still own it) I would have got a Tesla back then but they only had the more expensive ones out. I paid around the same price as you paid and may have to replace it as I will at present have to pay the congestion charge from next year, hopefully they scrap it and if BMW can’t give me a good deal I will look at the Model 3 . By then...
