Re: Frost on the outside, condensation on the inside

I used to use a basket and bag system in my seldom used convertible. A porous bag with 1Kg of calcium chloride sat on top of a catch tank would drop the RH in the car enough to ward off the worst of the condensation. As for the condensation after a drive, I would imagine that as the interior has war...

Re: Frost on the outside, condensation on the inside

Car interiors can pump moisture in over a period of time, especially if parked outside. Car gets relatively warm in the day, cools and draws in moist air. Temperature drops further, moisture condenses. Next day, same cycle again, but the moisture from the day before does not evaporate as the surface...

Already found some completely new (to me) bands that I like, as well as some old favourites. Can be a little bit random, but random i...

Re: Inflating Tyres

I have to admit that I'm uncomfortable with having no spare. When I use the car, it's usually for a extremely long journey, or a long way from home. I do carry a rudimentary punture repair kit, along with the goo, but for anything bigger, it'll have to be Jag assist. A basic plug repair kit and a s...

Re: Key fob distance

You do realise that all over the world, forum members will now be out sneaking up on their cars now :D From reading the forum, it seems the car stays partially "awake" when it is detecting the presence of the keys, which will use battery charge. It does demonstrate the need to keep remote entry and ...

Re: Nav Maps won't update
