Re: Must Have Options?

Interesting that most people are saying split rear seats are a must have. I have had them on my current XE for 3 years and used them once! Decided not to bother on new car and spend the money elsewhere. I must be the odd one out :lol: Ditto, used mine once also but cursed the stupid release knobs i...

Re: Autoexpress report, possible £700 annual road toll bill, as evs hit fuel duty revenue

"Researchers say....". Nuff said. Paper talk.
Though obviously, one day, there will have to be some way of making up for the loss of duty on fuel.

An odd problem with my satnav

I drove to Gatwick last week and back to Leeds today. I had the satnav guiding me so that I had notice of any traffic problems, not because I thought I might get lost on the M1 and M25. On the southern part of the M1, and for a while on the northern stretch of the M25, as I approached slip roads the...

Re: heated front seats

How can you tell, unless you put a thermometer on each seat?

Re: USB music playback problem

I suffered a strange problem on Friday evening. I play music from an iPod, via a USB port. The iPod is always on shuffle, and there have been no problems with the playback during the twelve months I've had the car. On Friday, though the track changed, the listing shown on the car's screen didn't upd...

You joined this forum to say you were leaving? How bizarre.

Re: Reading all of this will leave you Tyred Out.

A fun read. Congratulations on spelling "tyres" correctly. I've tried for some years to teach the members of the Wild Guzzi forum that spelling it with an "i" is wrong in the context of rubber for wheels.
Now you just need to think centigrade rather than Fahrenheit and we'll send you a passport.

Re: £1500 Deposit Contribution

I got the same deal. I only financed a small part of the price, and paid it off after three months. My wife's now buying a Skoda Citigo, and has been offered the same sort of deal. I find it hard to understand how it can be profitable for the finance company. Maybe someone here can give a simple exp...
