Re: Keyless Cars - Faraday bags - a heads up

Hawkeye, another safeguard is to make sure the spare is also protected and secure as this can be overlooked by owners has as happened locally according to crime reports.

Re: THE HAPPY PLACE

Newtroconthebloc. The original horn is one of a pair that is fitted to a Tiguan. They have ordered a low tone horn to match and the unit costs £35 plus fitting. I am not sure of total cost but will post when it's done. Originally when a twin horn was specified for early T-Rocs there was one within e...

Re: Safety recall

I have just checked on the uk.gov website for recalls on the headrest weld and the only one listed is for the rear spoiler replacement for my car and this will be fitted by the dealer on 7th May. They are also replacing rear brake pads due to "mooing", drivers door mirror for creaking and centering ...

Re: Delayed build week (major)

Not good news Impala but really bad news for the integrity of the dealer and VW. You have had the patience of a saint and I would think that as your order is not so exceptional to any others a full apology, recompense and a frank explanation of why your car has not been delivered when others clearly...

Re: Data plug

I think both VW Connect and CarNet have some useful functions. I use Connect in conjunction with the satnav for up to date information an use it to record fuel stops and running costs etc. It also keeps car details such as tyre sizes and service arrangements and journeys all in one place for referen...

Re: Front Passenger Seat

Checked my R Line today and the large round knob that adjusts the front passenger seat and can confirm it only goes to the upright position and stops so does not fold flat.

Re: Warranty repair burned loads of fuel...

When using a courtesy car from the dealer it is always agreed that you replace any fuel used before its return and the gauge fill is marked on the insurance/damage hand over sheet. Likewise they are resonsible for any fuel they use. Simples.......

Re: Petrol Octane used?

I have used Shell VPower fuels exclusively for years in all my cars with no problems. Its more expensive but has more cleaning properties and octane than standard fuel. Opinions will vary but I am happy with my choice. No fuels are the same but spot market buying by supermarkets can lead to a wide v...

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

As a previous owner of a Land Rover Discovery Sport with 2.0 litre diesel ingenium engine, it never came close to the mpg I get with my T Roc. Because manufacturers were allowed to print misleading fuel consumption figures based on laboratory tests, the figures for the DS were 40 town, 50 urban and ...

Re: Has VAG dropped the ball ?

I agree Hawkeye. Other manufacturers were caught out and any diesel that had Bosch architecture probably had an embedded programme similar to VW. In fact VW have veen the only ones clobbered so perhaps they have been the fall guys for the rest. Your right regarding the recharging infrastructure need...
