Re: Extended Warranty

Here's a good one! SWMBO's Rapid was purchased used, (but only 8 months old), and with an extended warranty which the original purchaser had paid for. The extended warranty appears on the digital service records every time the car is serviced. When the car got to 3 years old I contacted Skoda UK Cus...

Re: Pitting on chrome bits after hand/carwash

I've been following this thread for a while and have been thinking that I've not noticed this on my Skodiaq. Then washing it today I realised that it's because I don't have the chrome trim round the windows on my SE spec. However, my previous Superb Greenline did have them and at five years from new...

Only clue on the number plate is the first three letters of the country and their national flag.
Oh, it must be Wales then!
Nope. Nothing good has ever come from Wales.
It came from Czech Republic and was imported to Wales. 😁

Look at the number plate, all the clues are there....
I've got no idea, is there an obvious clue on number plates?

I will guess Belgium.

Re: 18 months on.......

My real gripe is with the servicing schedules. I had barely covered 4000 miles when I was informed that its yearly service was due. That time I allowed them to lighten my wallet, I am going elsewhere ( an independent specialist ) for this years one when the car is due, even though it will probably ...

Re: Rear discs and pads

Unfortunately I have the DSG, I park on a slope and after washing the vehicle (I like to keep it clean) the brake definitely sticks and releases with a bang. I am going to phone customer services and say the premature wear is due to sticking back brake. Thanks A solution might be to take the car fo...

Re: Extra button in Kodiaq's board

No. XLR throttle modifier. (racechip.co.uk) Is a plug in 'brain' such you can set to 6 or 7 different responses. Cancelling out the appalling throttle lag on the 1.4 Kodiaq engine. Choose 'RACE' mode and the off the line acceleration is phenomenal. Ah! I'm afraid I'm too old and steady for such new...
