Re: Petrol - what octane?

I can't scientifically claim that my engine runs quieter on super, but it seems to. It's also punchier and I typically get an extra 20-40 miles out of a tank. As to whether it's worth it, that depends on the price difference to regular. I tend to use sainsburys or esso fuel in regular and super. Onl...

I don't know if it makes any difference, but are you still subscribed to any Skoda Connect services?

You could park close enough to your house to pick up the WiFi and try the 'online download'.
Or use a mobile phone as a hot-spot if you have enough data allowance.

Obviously you'll need to configure the WAN settings to use whatever method you try. Need to pop out the SIM to use WiFi, etc

Re: Tyre Pressure Monitoring

I'm probably being a bit simplistic BUT I always assumed the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System would actually monitor TYRE PRESSURE not wheel rotation? The ABS version is more of a rapid deflation warning. If I understood it correctly, it's able to measure the diameter of the tyre and compare to the ...

Re: Medical Emergency

Good question!
I'd slide the DSG into 'manual' and go down through the gears then finally into neutral.
Never tried it myself but I assumed the handbrake just wouldn't come on when driving at speed.

Re: Hard to decide between Kodiaq and 5008

In terms of fuel economy I doubt there's much difference between CC and ACC

Re: Maybe I`m a bit thick but.......

I prefer to use the voice command for putting in the address, but you have to do it in reverse!

E.g.
"Navigate to Brighton, High Street, 25"

Re: Hard to decide between Kodiaq and 5008

I too use cruise control, (speed limiter when in London), almost all the time, not only to avoid speeding penalties, but also because it seems to be more economical than driving with the right shoe constantly on the fast pedal. Anyone else noticed this? 🤔 Opposite for me. Mainly because I can see w...
