Re: Servicing from Skoda Dealer or Not

I have found that Skoda dealers are only marginally more expensive than other companies with exception to my local garage who doesn’t have all the equipment required for anything other than a service and as other have said after the purchase of official parts it’s not worth the hassle. The nice thin...

Re: Headlight discoloration

Looks like condensation to me, quite normal on modern headlights as they are not 100% sealed.

Re: Newbie...Hi Peoples.

Imagine taking a car fitted with a dashcam on a ferry abroad to a country where they are illegal. It would make the car unsaleable. On/off setting maybe.... radical idea? I think that would depend on the particular laws of the country involved. They might not allow such equipment in a car because i...

Re: Newbie...Hi Peoples.

Whereas I hardly ever look at the Satnav screen and simply listen to the spoken instructions. I prefer to keep my eyes on the road. I tend to use both displays as well as Audible notifications, the MFD is quite good as it does show to pictorially the distance as you get closer to junctions, handy i...

Re: Newbie...Hi Peoples.

I especially like the turn by turn instructions on the dot matrix screen in front of me. I find myself looking at that more than the main screen. Whereas I hardly ever look at the Satnav screen and simply listen to the spoken instructions. I prefer to keep my eyes on the road. I tend to use both di...

Re: Newbie...Hi Peoples.

I decided to purchase an SE DSG as it includes most of the items I need/like. One of the key reasons for the SE was that it did NOT have sat nav, and the reason why? I have been a member of the TomTom beta team for many years and have used all of the various sat nav systems. Yes the built in Google...

Re: Newbie...Hi Peoples.

As a matter of interest I have done two journeys today one of 33 miles and one of 49miles which took me down country roads, A &B roads, motorways and Glasgow city centre. For both I used the 'allegedly' inferior Skoda Sat-Nav as well as running Google maps in tandem. Although hardly scientific both ...

Re: Door protection thingy. Gripped. UPDATE. Page 5.

Thanks Kenny R -- I finally got around to checking out the link you sent to the video of the guy using a screwdriver to pull out the piece in order to re-secure the protection thingy (www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXwHenzyIWA) and it seems to have worked -- at least for now, it's retracting fully once ag...

Re: Newbie...Hi Peoples.

Seriously? You think it’s fundamentally wrong to offer advice based on extensive personal experience of both systems? Whilst your personal experience and preferences may differ, I can say for sure that whilst there are many features of my SEL that I do very much like, I would not pay a penny extra ...
