Re: Rear disc corrosion

As already mentioned. It looks like the pads are too small or not fitting correctly. The disc should be shiny almost up to the edge. In that photo it looks like only about half the disc is in contact with the pad.

Re: Touch 8 inch - Apple Car Play/Android

No. CarPlay only works with the Pro unit. Some people have replaced the unit with a 3rd party unit instead.

Re: 2019 R-Dynamic Service Advice

Many years ago I bought a Renault Megane from an official dealer. The car had been registered in 2000 but was actually a 1999 built car. When the car was actually built it had a recommended service interval of 1 year which was also printed in the manual that was supplied with the car. I was told by ...

It perhaps seems a bit random for a first post but the op doesn't appear to be selling anything or providing dodgy links to websites.
He is certainly pointing to a particular company. He doesn't mention the first company who failed to help, but heaps a lot of praise on a specialist.

Re: Taking slightly longer to start than usual

Mine is diesel. Even on the coldest days winter just gone, it starts pretty instantly. Certainly never more than a second or so.

Re: Front vent damage.

Sorry for late reply. Been offline for a few days. What I did was undo a few screws to be able to peel the inner plastic wing to allow enough room to see inside and get a hand in.

Easy way to check if it is AWD is to put it into Rain, Snow and Ice. It should come up and ask if you want to engage low friction launch if AWD version.
I have a 25D AWD. I never get that message when I use Rain/Snow/Ice setting.

Re: AdBlue fill-ups

The car is just telling you that it would take 13ltrs to fill the tanks. But you don't need to fill it. Just like your fuel tank, you can put as much or as little in as you like. As has been mentioned on various topics. There can be issues with overfilling with AdBlue, so it is always best to err on...
