Re: MY20 - rear view mirror area

I will have a go tonight my time if no-one else has. We have the clearsight, I think it is very difficult to use if you have prescription lenses. Think of it on this basis, when you are looking at a car perched on your arse through the normal mirror, you are actually focusing on something maybe 4 m...

Re: Face lift model

Cheers, strangely enough I had wanted the diamond cut and thought my missus was disappointed with black, but now she doesnt want to change. Well as they say, once black... I managed to get the car yesterday, it is just so beautiful inside. I liked the interior of the previous but this is another le...

My first glitch

Went out to use the car this morning and thought that the screen wasn’t on. It was but had shrunk to the size of a postage stamp :o

I tried turning it on and off a few times but didn’t help but, as I wasn’t in any hurry, I went inside and had a cuppa and when I went out again it was fine :roll:

Re: Am I doing this wrong?

Okay, I finally got round to taking a photo :idea:
As can be seen the pump and gunk can are at the back of the container near the battery. Strangely there is plenty of space at the front, so first thing is to buy another pump. Incidentally the recess in the middle is very deep.

Re: Am I doing this wrong?

It’s the facelift model and the compressor is definitely at the back. There are empty recesses at the front - only a bottle of leather cleaner and the locking wheel nut are in the front.
I’ll take a photo tomorrow.

Am I doing this wrong?

Sorry for the cryptic title but I couldn’t think of another way to phrase it :( I’m in day 2 of my XE ownership. Tonight my wife wanted to go out on her bike but it had a flat tyre, no problem I’ve got a pump in the boot. I don’t have a spare so it’s one of those can/compressor jobs. The boot floor ...

Re: Another delay

Yes, Hillington. I went in on 11th May since I was out that direction, talked to a salesman and for some reason he introduced me to the Sales Manager, don't know why. At that stage it was a mildly interested enquiry and I said I'd be coming out on the 25th May for a serious look though I did drop t...

Re: Another delay

Thanks for the outrage at my Dealer gents but at worst, getting into the pool delayed things by a week and a bit. My order was placed well over 7 weeks ago. Like I said, perhaps my salesman is a "Walter Mitty" type but I think I might have a word with the Sales Manager at Taggarts especially when J...

Re: Another delay

The expected "hitting the fan" has happened. Not 26th July, sometime in September now. Like they didn't suspect that in the first place. But it gets worse. All XE models will now be made in Slovakia. New production line, new equipment (or worse, old stuff adapted). New workers. Who wants their new ...
