Re: Satnav going into night mode in daytime

I thought the day/night was a function of the auto headlights AND ambient light levels.

At dusk my headlights can be on but the satnav is still on the day time colours. Then as the light levels fall the satnav will switch to night time colours.

Re: Samsung Phones and wireless charging

My old S9+ and my new S10+ both in an Otterbox Folio case are just about on the limit in terms of the length that will fit in. Both of these phones charged just fine in their cases, but a few mm longer and the back of the case wouldn't sit on the pad due to the lip at the front edge of the tray.

Re: 1.6tdi or 2.tdi?

You can tell if it's regenerating as the Stop/Start will stop working and, when stopped the RPM will sit at 1000 rather than 800. Also, if you stop the engine and get out while its regenerating, the cooling fan will be running very quickly and the car smells hot as if you've been ragging it around.

Re: Rear Assist and Blind Spot Monitor Issue

Sounds like a fault. Mine only deactivate when a trailer is attached.

Re: Pana Sunroof One-touch

If it's anything like previous cars I've owned, the fully open position has more wind noise. The rationale is you can open it further if you want but it's less refined.

Re: Help choosing FR, FR Sport and Panoramic Sunroof

If you plan on buying it at the end of the PCP, I'd steer clear of the pano roof. Had one on my Touareg, it was awesome, but the problems out of warranty would keep me away. Ok, it won't be the exact same cassette mechanism, but they can be very expensive to fix.

Re: DRIVER SEAT MEMORY FUNCTION

It is a nice extra!

BMW 5 series have partial electric adjustment... Even worse!

Re: DRIVER SEAT MEMORY FUNCTION

It's not as if the car has this as an option (although it is available on Skoda / VW / Audi vehicles), which would make it significantly easier, but I suspect the coding may the most difficult due to the new MQB platform. I've retrofitted quite a bit of stuff (satnav, bluetooth, reversing cameras) t...

Re: Alcantara seats

Well I stand corrected. Chocolate and Alcantara aren't an issue.

Re: Alcantara seats

Yep, Alcantara and a member of The Sticky Finger Brigade is a recipe for disaster... This is the sole reason I went for an Xcellence over an FR. Would have loved an FR, but I wouldn't have enjoyed cleaning chocolate out of the seats. :)
