My wife's still got my old V70, that was mapped to 280bhp so did a good job of eating tyres. Bogi has my other V70 that was mapped to a similar bhp, bet he gets more out of the tyres than me!

We've got a RICA (310bhp map) C70.....6k is not unusual round these lanes Having tried a few, I run Toyo Proxes.

i had a new 04 plate A4 estate, the most i would ever get was 12k out of the front. by 10k they were close.it was the multitronic which adds weight . the Audi dealer told me that 10k was pretty reasonable

holy sheet ... youd be hoping for only dry days then

You know .. I have to say that the T5 (which was originally developed by Audi IIRC) is an amazing engine , small, but with awesome power output
