Re: 159 JDTM TI q-tronic SW. thinking of buying after opinions
first off - it's a fantastic car and you would certainly not regret buying one!
a) it is front-wheel drive or 4 wheel drive, the 4 wheel drive leaning towards the back wheels
b) yes you can, and it's a real nice combination the 4x4 + the automatic gearbox...
c) superb on bot front and all wheel drive
d) depending on the tyres...
wind-noise is no more than any other car , probably just a bit louder than c-class or the 3-series , but not really so much that it would annoy you
e) only thing that i know of that might break is the bonnet release (there is a topic among the active ones here...) but overall the build quality of the interior is up there
f) nothing serious , apart from a very limited break error on a small number of 07 cars (the more knowledgeble people will correct me on this one)
g) no more than any other front wheel drive car, but the very good grip that it naturally has compensates all too well (the front is heavy enough to push the wheels for good grip)
