Re: About to pull the trigger 1.5 SE L Kodiaq (w/toys)

Welcome Kamikaze! ;) Do you REALLY need all that extra kit? It may be cheaper to go up to L&K I assume you have kids? My personal choice would delete those marked below as being a waste of money. but obviously your needs are probably quite different from mine. Personally I would always have leather....

Re: Dash Cam date reverts to factory setting

I always used (without dashcam at present) the USB. never a problem. I don't see how it can cause problems with memory stick unless you have a double adapter and plug both in at once. Or are you plugging stick into DVD player USB? At the same time as camera into centre console? THEN it might cause a...

Re: Dash Cam date reverts to factory setting

[/quote] Thanks Colin, I'll have a look. Just had a quick read of what he's written and interestingly he advises against plugging a dash cam directly in the cars USB port. You haven't read this have you Colin ;) [/quote] no I must admit I haven't looked at his web site for a coupe of years as I have...

Re: Kodiaq Exhaust

There are no 'Cat Back' systems listed for Skoda that I am aware of and the only Volkswagen is the Tiguan. Why do you want to do it??? It would, without doubt, nullify your warranty.

Re: Dash Cam date reverts to factory setting

Sorry Old man, can't help with your problem. Far too 'leccy-tekky' for me

It will probably take a month or two. i have fried 2 cameras doing this. Before I realised the problem. If it IS 5 volts, get a...

Re: Time to swap for a new Kodiaq?

Steve, Always paying cash for my cars I cannot comment on any credit deal. I do however know quite a lot about the 1.5TSi. The 'kangaroo' only applied in the first half of '18 and was a 'feature' mainly of the manual. Some cars actually being dangerous to drive. Skoda tried various 'fixes' without m...
