Re: Isofix 3rd row

It’s still legal to use non high back booster seats in the UK if you already have them, but it’s no longer legal to sell them.

That said, it’s worth swapping to a high back booster if you’re only using a booster cushion as they are significantly safer.

About 80 BHP?
Sportline can be 190ps and vRS is 239ps so I make it only 49ps difference (48.33 bhp).
You don’t get a 190BHP Sportline for £29,500...

Re: Skoda Connect

You do have the option of connecting to your home WiFi for large downloads (map updates). If you use your phone hot spot, you have to remember to enable it for every journey. Three offer a free SIM that comes with 200MB of free data per month, which seems to be enough to run the Connect services (I ...

Re: Isofix 3rd row

Unless they have been through proper safety tests and are stamped as compliant with regulations, there’s no way I’d trust them with a barge pole. Otherwise you’re trusting that whoever knocked them up has used the right gauge of metal, has designed them so they can withstand the stresses of crash, a...

Re: Apple car play stopped working

CarPlay occasionally glitches on mine too. However, I find the fix is generally to force a reboot of Columbus. Touch and hold the power button until the screen suddenly goes black (takes a good 15 seconds or so) and you hear a pop over the audio. It reboots and starts back up, and usually CarPlay st...

Re: ACC question

If the car in front moves within 3/4 seconds of yours coming to a halt, your ACC should automatically restart and move your car forward, but if it's stationary for longer than that, you have to flick the ACC stalk to resume your journey. Exactly that! You can also give the accelerator a gentle tap,...

Re: 2.0 TSI ORDERS!

Nice to see the delivery going down to 12w. I was talking with the dealer today about various engine parameters, and i observed that the new 2.0 TSI 190 has a Nox emission of 50 mg/km, while 2.0 TDI 190 has 59 mg/km, i was surprised by the little difference, since diesel is so criticized in terms o...

Re: Wireless phone charger

My understanding is that licensing of radio frequencies is a specific to individual countries - for example Ofcom get to decide which frequencies Vodafone can use, but that doesn't mean Vodafone can use those same frequencies in France. Skoda's mobile signal booster was amplifying a range of frequen...

I'll leave the box in D if stopping for what appears to be a short time and put it in P for longer stops.
Sounds sensible. And remember, if you’re stopped for any length of time, the stop-start will kick in and then you can be completely sure that the clutches aren’t wearing at all.
