Hi all

Is driver assist/park parK a must?
I can only say that I had Park Assist it in my XE and after trying it unsuccessfully 3 or 4 times I never used it. That may say more about me than the system but personally I find the 360 cameras much more useful for parking: Can't speak for the Adaptive cruise control or high speed braking; however Blind Spot assist is also a must for me, which would give me a bit of a dilemma now that it can't be selected individually, in terms of paying out for features that I will probably not use.

Ive got the Park Assist package and the only time ive used it was when the dealer was demonstrating it nearly 12 months ago, It was my wife that wanted it as she was worrying about parking such a big, high car coming from an MX, but it has been a total waste of money in our opinion. However, the reversing camera is very useful and my wife and i do you it, but i can't remember if the camera comes as standard or as part of the park assist package.

One other silly question - can you turn the HUD off?

I assume so but just want to be sure.
Anyone with HUD able to help here?
In one of the menus on the info panel on the dash there is an option about what info to include. The option to switch off may be in there or perhaps you can switch off all the data options and it won't show.

Hope that helps

Flub!

Thanks Flubster - unfortunately as I don't own one yet I have no way of actually checking this. It's quite a niche request so I can always ask/check with the dealer when I go for a test drive.

Hi Steve C
You need to press the menu button on the steering which brings up a display on the speedo area then scroll down using the up down arrows on the wheel to the bottom option which will bring up the HUD option one of which is to turn it off. Regards Mark.

Yeah the Blind Spot assist sounds good. It's really annoying that it is part of that rip off pack.

That is really interesting. The sales guy I had my test drive with say the same thing that I wouldn't use it

Coming from the point of view of someone who currently has a car with beepers, I would say no unless you're a nervous parker! Agree with others that the cameras (reverising and/or 360) will probably be useful.

Is it only the 'full size spare' that comes with the hump in the boot?

I was speccing up a car last week, and chose the 'svr reduced section alloy spare wheel' as it seemed a good option for £160.
At the final screen under dimensions it states
"Boot volume (litres) when fitted with tyre repair system: 650" and then "Boot volume (litres) when fitted with the space saver spare wheel: 508".

As much as I'd like a spare wheel, I don't think I can justify giving away over 1/5th of the boot space for something I may never use!

I thought the reduced selection spare was intended to fit under the boot floor. I asked the dealer, but they were none the wiser!
Can anyone answer this?

Skinny spare and tool kit fits under the boot floor on top of battery and it means you can't use any of that area for additional storage but you get a flat boot. Full sized wheel gives you a hump. Reduced section spare is a good idea. I used mine today. Ten minutes to change a wheel vs goodness knows how long to wait for tyre man/recovery on a bank holiday? I asked a recovery guy last year about the inflation kits and he said 75% of the time they don't work plus the stuff injected means its a new tyre needed most times...

Just seen this was SVR wheel and I don't know what the dimensions are of the skinny spare or the full sized wheels.

The well under the boot floor looked pretty big to me, and I can't see how an SVR space saver wheel would be any 'fatter' than any other space saver? Unless it has to be fatter to cover bigger brakes? Although my order has been placed, it'll probably be months until it's allocated a build slot - so hopefully there is an answer to this before I can't make any changes!

I assume the 650L of boot space doesn't even count the part underneath the floor? I have a 'collapsible spare' in my SQ5 which the tyre blows up like an accordion if required. I've never used it, but like it there as a precaution.
There's still spare round about it to store some little bits and bobs, like an old waterproof jacket and some "bags for life" incase of an impromptu trip to the shops!

You need confirmation of the width of the reduced section alloy spare wheel at some point. I see the rear wheels are wider than the front on an SVR at 295mm for rear tyres which is wider than the 265mm on my wheels so, conceivably the reduced section alloy spare may be wider than standard as well? Mine has a reduced section steel spare and jack so can't compare.

How valuable is the Adaptive LED headlight as an option compared to Xenons with LED running lights?
Did you read the start of this thread before you asked the question? . . you'll find various opinions already expressed . . some love 'em, others are less bothered . . if you like being flashed at by oncoming drivers 'cos you're dazzling them, then you'll love 'em! Whether they're worth the extra cost is debatable; you might feel they're worth it, to you, but your car won't likely be worth more at resale because of having them.

Wishful thinking! . . are you suggesting you'll get the money you spent on them back?
