Re: Ad-blue

the warning message appeared this morning ,so I bought ad-blue from the petrol station , is it just a case of pouring it into the tank in the boot??? It is yes, but make sure you cover the area around the filler as any spillage will leave white marks on carpet etc. Best to buy it in 5 litre contain...

Re: Fitting/setting dipping side mirrors

Quick addition to this post. I had the unfortunate experience the other night, raining hard driving on a narrow country road, to kiss side mirrors with someone coming the other way. Of course he was over too far!! There was a bang as we touched, the mirror housing wasn't pushed back but the glass fe...

Re: Sods law

Oh dear!! Unfortunate, but there can't be many drivers who don't kerb their alloys at some time. I congratulate you Vespa if you've only done it once in 17 years. I must confess I have done it quite a few times over the years but then I was doing over 30,000 miles a year before I retired. I have bas...

Re: Fun with Ingenium at 4mph - Useful too

I wonder if you can do handbrake turns in the XE in the snow? That should be fun using the button. :!: :!:

Re: USB music playback problem

radio.JPG Never had a problem with one of these in my old MK 2 3.8 :D :D Who did you listen to on that? Churchill speeches? Glenn Miller? Radiohead when they were good? :D Winston was busy painting in France and Glenn had disappeared I'm afraid. :) :) It was late 60s, early 70s and we had Radio 1 b...

Re: USB music playback problem

I'm sure there are other playlist creators out there, just I've found that Windows media player works for me. Yep. By far the easiest one for me. Just load albums onto the media player then pop in the usb and sync them onto it. I also binned that annoying "Carousel" display on the screen as I was f...

Re: USB music playback problem

In regard to latest replies - the car is a 2019 edition XE R Sport Landmark, with 350w Meridian sound, 10.5in display and no CD player. I also forgot to mention another issue. When I created my own homescreen and dragged widgets to create it, I placed the analogue clock graphic in the middle, the m...
