    D4 Purchase

    Thank you everyone for your input. We ended up buying the 2013 3.0 TDV6 8 speed. The only 2 issues that came up from the pre purchase inspection is - 1) slight weep from the HP power steering hose, and 2) needs new wiper blades. The transmission hasnt been serviced, so well do that soon. But it does drive like a new car & its never been off road.

    Went for a drive today and returned 8lt/100k...our Mazda 2 gets 7 - 7.5/100km

    Is that the figure from the vehicles trip computer? If so, it's probably a bit optimistic (they usually all are) - you can likely add a litre or two on to make it accurate.

    D4 Purchase

    A wheel question:

    Why cant you fit rims that are small than 19 to a 3.0 D4? Besides looks and onroad handling, is there a reason why I cant have a set of 16 off road wheels in the garage?

    Actually ignore this. Ill repost it in a new thread (cant work out how to delete my comment tru Tapatalk)

    Upgraded brakes are too big to fit 18" rims unless you go to the compotive style. Plenty of prior comments on this, and I think I mentioned when you were first considering your D4 options?
