In the FR I ordered I added Leather at €115, This included Heated seats / windscreen
Whereas if I had not ordered leather then the winter pack giving heated seats and windscreen was over €400.
How can that add up?? LOL
It doesn't, but leather for €115 surely has a zero missing?

Re: Specification List 2019

It's a SEAT UK thing. In Spain you can still order all the extras that are not in the spec separately. I just don't understand the logic of limiting customer choice - it certainly seems to be upsetting a number of owners on this forum. I guess the logic is being able to churn out cars in volume wit...

Keep an eye on the rear indicators when you close the boot. If the car is locked, you get a single flash as the boot locks.
....and if they flash a few times - you've shut the fob in the boot! Open it quick, or it'll lock itself!

Question: Do garages have different oil specs for cars on different service specs?
If so, Do they use an inferior oil spec for cars on yearly servicing!
In theory, yes. In practice you'd never know unless you got hold of the mechanic doing the work.

Re: Oil service and inspection service ?

Servicing is such a rip-off it's untrue. It's the exact same engine yet SEAT quotes more expensive than VW. If it was an Audi it'd be £400. On the plus side SEAT including 1yr 'free' (in inverted brackets because it's already built in to the price) breakdown cover What happens if you don't need ano...

Re: Goodbye Tiguans, hello Ateca

Two minor things: I take it the cooling fan noise - even after v.short drives - for up to 10mins after stopping engine is a Seat thing? Where your previous VW diesels? Our Tiguan has the same engine, and the fan does run on if you stop during an active regen. But it should be a rare thing and it ru...

Re: Stone Chip Damage

Yes, nice job. I did a light metallic blue on a Honda some years ago using a DIY method of touch-up paint and Electrolube ULS as a solvent - it worked perfectly and the repair was invisible, but I've never quite been able to replicate it since. Getting the timing right for getting rid of the excess ...

Re: Total Indifference by Dealer

I tried to place an order for a SEAT Ateca. The dealer took my deposit then simply refused to progress an order. I had to chase at every turn. Despite my finance application being approved, they sat on the paperwork and simply refused to place an order - How did you become aware they hadn't placed ...

Re: Total Indifference by Dealer

Who was the good dealer? The one we used, SEAT Wrexham, was very keen to sell us a car. Pity they were crap after that - would have been nice to have had the car properly prepared on delivery, and at the least the bad dealer you had answered the 'phone! Based on the experience, I can't see the "some...

Re: Ateca MY19 SE Spec

.....you should always check with your authorised SEAT Partner for the latest information." May not help even then as dealers are usually clueless - of course not totally their fault but they get so used to not knowing stuff that they ignore things they're told. Our Ateca came without Full-Link - d...
