Re: Automatic or Manual

I had a friend who bought a manual XE and found it impossible to use the electric hand-brake for hill starts. It was so unusable that he sold it. Clutch up to biting point release handbrake :roll: Basic skill taught during a driving lesson. The XE can also auto release the handbrake to so even easi...

Re: Smart Motorways (Again)

I travel regularly on the M42 & the dynamic system works well enough. The traffic is restricted to 60mph flows better than before & the stats show a lower rate of injury accidents. The hard shoulder is only a lane at busy times with the lower speed enforced by cameras. Accidents do still happen but ...

Re: Smart Motorways (Again)

Long before smart motorways trucks have been crashing into cars broken down on the hard shoulder. Its why they tell you to get out of the vehicle and stand on the grass verge.

Re: FLASH50

ECP have a discount code 365 24/7. They over price everything to the ammount of the "discount". Dont be fooled although their prices are competitive enough once the code is applied.

Would you pay £61.99 for Castrol Edge when the normal price is £36? :lol:

It just a silly marketing trick. :D

Re: Power mirror auto fold on lock, but doesn’t open when unlock.

Disconnect the main battery for a few minutes to reset everything.

On a previous car odd behaviour of the electrics was the first indication of a failing battery even though it still started the engine.

Post up what happens!!

Re: Door Seal

My XE is at 3 years and all seals look like new. Take yours to a dealer it's a warranty issue.

Re: Door Seal

Loose as in coming off the frame? A thump with your hand would fix it but best ask your dealer.

Re: Automatic or Manual

I would say buy an automatic as I just enjoy the drive more. If you want to change manually then the paddles can be used like a racing car. Do you really want to be pressing a clutch all the time? In traffic hold ups? My mother says she prefers wind down keep fit windows and SD TV to HD and wont use...

Re: Loan car

I had a newish 5 series for a while and never really enjoyed it. IDRIVE isn't that good. A swivel wheel to click & select on screen letters to input a basic post code is awkward compared to a touch screen. BMW are good enough but overrated imho.
