Re: High pitch

Yes, I've noticed this if for some reason I stay in the car after turning the engine off. It's a quiet, as you say high-pitched whine - definitely not the main cooling fan. It seems to go on for about a minute or so. I've assumed it might be something in thwe aircon system 'winding down', bu that's ...

Re: Are SEAT losing sales with their daft spec. policy.

I completely agree. I'm lucky that I bought mine when there were options galore. I find the process of musing over which options to choose very enjoyable. It will certainly put me off if they're still doing it this way whwn I come to renew my car.

Re: Battery acting up on a 2017 Purchase Car

A quick look at the Halfords website shows a standard start/stop battery with a five year guarantee, so the factory one should be that good, surely. Isn't your battery still covered by the car warranty?

Re: storage cubby under the drivers seat

I think that's because the fuse box is on the same (left) side no matter which side the steering wheel is on!

Re: Wing mirrors not folding in when going through a narrow gap.

Oh, thanks - that's cleared that one up. I've had the warning a few times and had no idea why it was nagging me about the foglights. It doesn't say it's speed related.

Re: Carista to activate mirror dip on reverse.

I tried all this lot last winter. The behaviour was quite random - sometimes it worked, sometimes not, and sometimes left the mirror pointing down after coming out of reverse. I turned it off in the end.

Re: SatNav Limitation?

Thanks, Grahamn, for the suggestion re using the map. I tend to avoid doing much on the screen because I'm very right-handed. I'll have a play. I agree on voice - I think I got it to phone home once and that's about it.

Re: SatNav Limitation?

I certainly could. I'm just annoyed that I have the exact location (usually the car park) in the POI file, but can't specify it if I'm too far away. I Don't understand why there would be such a limitation.

Re: SatNav Limitation?

Unfortunately, quite a lot of them don't have their own postcode. You can sometimes end up by a row of houses with no indication of which way to go. Your suggestion would work well in the sense of getting within POI range, though. Thanks.
