Pejay, firstly welcome to the Forum and I am sure you will receive comments from the “Diesel” Members.

I still mourn my 1997 BM 525 bathchair. Sad really.... :(

The 1.6 petrol engines on the QQ with Turbo brings the performance up to the BMW 2ltr - ish engines. And there is certainly fuel consumption improvements. Pretty good steering IMO.

I'm always pleasantly surprised by the Turbo behaviour in 5th & 6th gears.

I certainly like the ride height and quietened engine and road noise.

Diesels should be very similar

Low Tyre pressure stuff should be dead simple. FEB has been rather shakey since inception and subject to software updates (last Feb for one). Its subject to radar signal behaviour in the real world...not a Lab or test track at Bosch. Its also not of a military standard.

You cannot test FEB...so ignore it unless its causing the car crash light to glow too much. Even after software change last Feb mine flicks/beeps at me sometimes....I can never repeat it at the same spot especially when there had been no other moving object in front of me on each occasion. I call that stuff ...spurious.
