Re: Keep having to log into nav 19c

No issue with 19A (except slightly dodgy bluetooth connnectivity) so I think I will remain there for the time being....

Re: Start & Stop button in ECO mode

Must admit I don't use Eco Mode. I haven't found any significant mpg improvement around town on shorter journeys or on longer motorway trips and as you say it is inconvenient with seat and steering wheel heating! Overall very pleased with mpg and much better than I was expecting for a 3.0d even in c...

Re: Headlamps on when unlocking at night or not?

Mine is April 2018 with LED lights and 2018 MY. On unlocking it is just the puddle lights and daytime running lights on mine. I am on version 19A.

Re: Privacy glass/tinted windows

I would say live with it and go for a refund. Not sure it really adds much except darkening the inside. I wouldn't specify it again as it looks a bit weird only being on the back windows to be honest. Must be a fashion thing.

Re: Hello and wtf ?

Goodness me. Doesnt look or sound right at all and definitely not a feature of the vehicle! Hopefully still under warranty?

Re: SVR Wheels and spacers

It had been mild so I delayed putting winter tyres on for a few weeks. Last week ABS kicked in on summer tyres when braking moderately hard on a cold, damp road. I was doing less than 30 mph but it was 3 degrees C and it took me by surprise. Put the winter tyres on next day.

Re: Dieselgate: should VW be made to pay in the UK too?

Yes some form of corporate punishment/recompense would work better! Drove an e Golf today. Leaf on Friday. Zoe next week. Was a passenger in a Hyundai Ionic recently. Really liked the e Golf although there won't be an e version in the new Golf 8 shape due to the ID allegedly arriving next year. So t...

Re: White blocks on the wheels

Perhaps some manufacturers are better at hiding the weights?

I managed to dislodge one with a pressure washer this week. Got some spares off ebay in black, wiped area with some Isopropyl Alchohol to get good adhesion and stuck a weight back in the same size as the missing one, which was 10 grams.

Re: Dieselgate: should VW be made to pay in the UK too?

I am not too sure what the point is of pursuing compensation claims like this other than making law firms richer and car manufacturers poorer. My Audi was fixed free of charge with a software update and I wasn't personally blamed for causing additional pollution by driving it so why do I need compen...

Re: F Pace 3.0d S remap

I think there is a massive difference in performance and you are being too kind to the 2.0d. I test drove the 2.5d and it sounded like someone had left a bag of spanners under the bonnet and much more like a London black cab than a jag. In contrast the 3.0d is quiet and refined and will accelerate v...
