Re: Car seat recommendations for VW TRoc

Pretty much all seats will fit just fine. The larger size rear facing Group 0+, will take up quite a bit the rear space requiring the front seats to be moved forward slightly. Front facing, and rotating seats fit just fine though, however you'll be getting foot prints all over the back of your seats...

Re: Performance & Driving

It's a 150 horsepower in a 1.5 ton car. That's a horsey for every 10kg. You're polo has 64 horsepower in a 1.1 ton car. That's a horsey for every 17kg.

You're Polo was rated at 0-60mph in 10.5s.

The 1.5 DSG T-Roc is rated at 0-60 in 8.1s.

It'll be significantly better performance.

With respect, I don’t think speculation helps.

Re: VW electronic hand brake failure

Now in the Sun https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9877702/mum-dragged-volkswagen-t-roc-brake-failed/ Interesting. The 43-year-old rushed to reach the parking brake, which she claims appeared to have released itself, and was dragged under the 4x4. So this incident looks like it occurred whilst OP was exi...

Re: Ignition switched 15 amp fuse

Yeah I'm interested in this as well.

I'm already hardwired in, however the fuse I used (can't remember which) deactivates when the engine start/stop activates.

Re: VW electronic hand brake failure

If you own a manual and you're parking on an incline, leave your vehicle in gear when exiting. Reverse for a forward facing slope and first for a rear facing slope. They also ...

Re: Rejected Trocs ?

You're experiencing the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon . You've becoming especially interested in T-Roc's so now your brain gets excited every-time you see a T-Roc. You see hundreds of cars everyday, but your brain will filter out 99% of them, maybe a shiny sports car will peak your interest and linger i...
