Re: Auto hold and parking brake help

Maybe I've become selfish but I'm quite happy to have "arsehole lights". The full beam is fantastic. There you go. Getting into the spirit of the SUV driver. Find a school and park on the zig-zag lines, even if you don't have kids. You paid for this, so get your money's worth :D Love it! :lol: you ...

Re: Auto hold and parking brake help

I worry more about dazzling people with my LED headlights. They are soo much brighter than any car I have driven before. And higher up. The missus told me she once got flashed at by someone driving in the opposite direction, as if to suggest that she had full beams on. A quick flash back put that t...

Re: Auto hold and parking brake help

Yes we’re talking about #3, but it’s not the handbrake that engages with autohold, ( when the green light comes on) it maintains hydraulic brake pressure in the system so technically front and rear brakes are applied. Thanks for that - I didn’t know that. It also explains why (to my surprise) the b...

Re: Start Stop Notification

I don't think I've ever noticed a stop start icon on the infotainment. It certainly appears on my Gameboy type display next to my dials. I turn it off all the time now as I hate it. I'd live with it if it didn't cut in before I'd stopped but the settings on it are just stupid.

Yea I actually really like the colour now that I've seen it in the flesh. Wasn't too sure as it's the new standard colour but knew I was happy with blue. Can't wait to pick it up tomorrow.
Aye I've got the old standard blue and I was worried that it would look hibs but it isn't bad at all.

Re: New here...patiently waiting

Sat in my car today! Woohoo! And managed to get a few pictures. Picking it up on Saturday! The wait is almost over! That will be just over 9 weeks from order to collection. Well ahead of the predicted 14 weeks. No idea how to attach pictures. :? Upload them to Imgur (photobucket won't let you share...

Re: Footrest install

Is this for the throttle foot or the clutch foot? After a long slow drive the other day in heavy traffic my right ankle was killing me after having to hold my foot up, hovering over the accelerator or pressing it very gently? I made a foot rest out of some aluminium sheet. (can post picture & detai...

Re: Problem re broker discount

Don't take it for granted that any dealer will honour a car wow price - heard that car wow often lags several weeks behind what dealers are actually able to offer. This guys at a different stage, post order. When you get a quote from car wow you get personalised messages fob dealers with their quot...

Re: 2.0 TSI MPG

Just returned from a long trip up to and around Scotland. Driving back on the M6, at 60mph (sometimes to 50mph for roadworks), fully laden was achieving 42mpg. Increasing speed to 70mph reduced this to 39-40mpg. These are the best I've seen is this car so far. Currently around 6K on the clock. I do...
