Re: Front collision why no AEB or AIR BAGS deployed?

Sorry to hear of your accident Andy, the main thing everybody is safe. What you describe is very worrying as I had a front impact last year and exactly the same thing happened, no AEB, no airbags and no seatbelt pre tension. The general consensus was that I was not going fast enough for AEB or airb...

Re: Front collision why no AEB or AIR BAGS deployed?

So sorry to hear about the prang Andyhol. I'm glad everyone is OK. As Wastegate says, it just depends on how the sensors see the impact. A quartering impact like the one you described would possibly be sensed as split into a longitudinal impact (along the centreline of the car) and a lateral one (fr...

Re: Pirelli PZero - review

PhilB, honestly I think that was a little harsh. MICK doesn't like them or recommend them. That is a review - albeit a very short one! Not everyone has the time or capacity to write detailed paragraphs. Look at other forums that are full of nothing but cobwebs and ticking clocks and be happy that yo...

Re: AdBlue and fuel economy....

I'm getting 7-8k KLMS from a full tank of Ad-Blue. Same engine as yours. I was only getting 3k but then I released that the dealer was only half filling it..... So I fill it myself now. Ha! Funny enough my plan is to fill it myself as I don’t trust the dealer to top it off properly either! Is it ea...

AdBlue and fuel economy....

So, I have completed about 8,000 kms in my 163ps and am starting to get to that point of expecting my AdBlue warning to appear at some point soon. Although being a MY16 car it may be quite a while yet.... I was thinking about DEF consumption though and how variable it is from driver to driver. It wo...

Re: Wheel Woolies

I have just bought a pair of proper buckets with grit guards also. Can't do without them!! I think the drying towel is by far the most overlooked part of the wash process. I have a Meguiars one and it's great. Water from your tap has all sorts of minerals and stuff in it that will leave water marks ...

Re: Wheel Woolies

billvega, mine are losing their white text as well....don't worry!! I love the look of your boots!! :) The annoyingly light rain got in the way of my mammoth wax off this morning, but I did manage to get a decent layer of Poor Boys onto the wheels anyway. Used the small brush as an applicator and th...

Re: Wheel Woolies

Yep you're right Phil....most of the copies seem to be made of wool or similar which collapses when wet. The originals hold their shape the entire time and even provide enough resistance to scrub here and there if needed. I was unsure about spending €50 on a set of what look like loo brushes but I m...

Wheel Woolies

Washed the car today - will wax it tomorrow, but I also tried my set of 'Wheel Woolies' that I recently bought. I wanted to completely clean my alloys before protecting them with some Poor Boys wheel wax that I have. Wheel.jpg They did a fantastic job of cleaning up the entire wheel including behind...
