Hi everyone. I've been a Land Rover man for 6 years, but decided to try out some German alternatives... eventually plumping for a new SQ5. So far I'm having far too much fun
MPG is 31 mind you so how I'm expected to get 42 I'm not sure! It's in Panther Black, with 20" alloys, black headlining, usual SQ5 extras... great exhaust note

Welcome!

My Mrs can get 42, I've tried and decided she is using black magic to achieve it though!

Glad you are enjoying it

Thanks for the welcome


Loving the performance. I've not let my wife near it yet.. but great idea to get the average mpg up without getting bored

Welcome, you have made a wise and exciting choice for transport. Whilst my ill fated Evoque lived in the dealership last year for 7 weeks I had a brand spanking new Disco TDV6 HSE and managed to see 30 mpg once in 6000 miles. I get a fairly consistent 37/38 out of the SQ5 and have seen north of 40 (actual) and couple of times.

Congratulations on getting over the wall and making a safe escape awd man. As you have now discovered the transition from bits coming loose, rattles and poor service was not so hard :)

ha ha love the comments guys

MPG has now jumped to 35 so she's freeing off nicely


Hoping to upgrade the alloys to 21's as I love the more aggressive look, but we will see what kind of swap deal my stealer comes up with


Ref picture uploading..I cannot see how I do it? any hints?
