Re: Speed limiters to be fitted by law in EU and UK?

Look at your Speedo 20,40,60 are all in figures. Therefore easily readable. 30, 50, 70 are only bars so not so easily readable in a hurry. Oh, I see. It never occurred to me that 30 (etc) was difficult to locate. After a few minutes driving a new car, I’ve usually learned what the needle position m...

Re: Speed limiters to be fitted by law in EU and UK?

> Because Skoda see fit NOT to put the UK speed limits in figures on the speedo I have marked mine with an indelible OHP pen with a red dot at 30, 50 & 70. <

I don't understand that. Speedos are already marked with speeds, and what about where the limit is 20, 40 or 60?

Re: New Kessy security rating.

And ... how long would it take, for insurance to agree and then Skoda to place on order a Kodiaq with the same spec that I carefully considered and would want again?

Re: Is park pilot/ parking aid different to park assist?

No, area view camera does not mean park pilot. You can see the area around you to help you park, but the car will not guide you to park. That’s surprising, since the (much cheaper) rear view camera does provide guidance. It will identify the space, show it on screen, and then show you when and how ...

Re: My 180BHP 2.00 TSI Edition experience

Mine’s a 1.4, but much of what you say applies. I just wonder (after the A124 Benz): what do you think of the ride quality? I still have my 1995 E220 convertible, and when I use it heave a huge sigh at the magic carpet ride! The Kodiaq’s jitteriness is the one thing that I find disappointing I recen...

Re: Speedometer accuracy

I agree with most of what's said above, and when adjusting the mechanically-driven speedos of a couple of old cars have used satnav to calibrate them. As long as you’re getting decent satellite signal, and speed is fairly constant, a satnav unit will give quite a good reading ... on the flat. I unde...

Re: Whistle sound from passenger mirror

If the tape stops the noise, perhaps some subtler infill will, too?
Can you please post a pic showing what you did?

Re: Wheel hub corrosion

Is it rust “comng through”, or is it powder from the brake discs, that has then rusted? See if it can be scrubbed off.

Re: Wireless phone charger

I'm no expert in this, but after a bit of background reading, I learned that: Use of mobile boosters in the UK is subject to regulation of, and licensing by, Ofcom. Ofcom announced that they would be allowing certain arrangements for having mobile boosters in cars. On 12 April 2018, the new arrangem...

Does it fit into the place in the middle where there is the USB port?
Well ... the Amazon link gives the dimensions. Can’t you measure the space in your car?
