Re: Retro fitting rear view camera to 2.0 sel 4 motion dsg

I have a quote, from a local audio and accessories fitter, and they are willing to fit one ( all VW stuff ) for £500. It will take them all day they say.

Re: 1.0L Owners - What Did You Have Before Your 1.0L

I had a 60 plate 1.4 Turbo Astra SRI 140 BHP. I can say that the T-roc feels more powerful than the Astra, on the flat, the only thing though is when I come to an uphill drag I need to drop a gear to keep it from losing speed. Otherwise, I am very happy indeed with everything the car offers.

Re: My Black Oak Brown

Too dark for me, very soon looks filthy, unless you wash it on the hour every hour. Red is the best at hiding muck all the time.

I think it tells you how many people are not wearing a safety belt. It means you're the only one in the car or your passengers are being naughty (for which you carry the can!) :)
Only if the person is 12 or under. Adults carry their own can.

Re: Start stop on 1.5 DSG.

I read on another forum about someone who wanted to do away with the stop/start function. A friend of his who he said was a tech type of guy with VW and said that there is a plug which is located at the top back on the left of the battery that he disconnected. This he reports to work all the time wi...

Re: Retro fitting rear view camera to 2.0 sel 4 motion dsg

That looks like the screen markings from the camera are not dynamic on the one that is in your picture, or can you change to different views? When I asked the dealer while making enquiries about having a reversing camera fitted. The dealer said they are not allowed to as there is not a kit available...

Re: Time change

It sometimes has something to do with which station you are tuned to. I had one car which would only change if the radio was on a BBC station, like radio 2. I am also fairly sure that the clock would change a moment after the radio was switched on after you turned on the ignition.
