Although the temperatures may not drop below 7C, in Luxembourg (and I think Germany too) the official time to change-over is end Oct/beginning Nov.

The phrase I was told was ''Oktober bis Ostern'' - October til Easter in English

On a side-note, Kumho tyres are actually good tyres, but are normally more associated with 'hot' hatches, they are standard on the new VW Polo and they were standard fitment for some Minis, but actually also some 3 series http://www.tirebusiness.com/article/20141210/NEWS/141219992/kumho-gains-bmw-oe...

They have stopped doing factory tours because there is so much secret R&D stuff going on from both Alpina and BMW

I'm not sure though if maybe you can see the wine cellars still

But can you call a car rare just because in RHD there were a minority, if overall throughout the world there were 100's/1000's produced?

In my opinion not, you have to take the whole Series as it was produced.

Its going to be a toss up between trying to get over 40mpg or trying to hit the 170+ top speed if conditions allow on the A3 (not the one in England, obviously). You should be able to achieve both in a D3 :D :D Are you the Blue one I saw travelling between Calbourne and Shalcombe about 2 weeks ago ...
