Reduce fuel - looks like about 10mpg extra on each cycle
Lower tax - £475 vs £235
Lower insurance - will be lower but not checked figures
Other positives - flog my Stillen exhaust (£600), cash in my tax disc (£400), don't buy a new set of tyres for the Zed (£850), improve practicality (not really that important).
R's are now hovevering at about £22k for a decent spec one whereas the M135i is still high £20k's if not low £30k's.
