I think it's a lot noisier than my last car too. Anyone else noticed that ?
I haven't been in your last car let alone this one so can't comment on which is noisier....

Re: 3yo car on long service & brake fluid change - is it necessary?

Ulrich, I'm with your local garage. Main dealer 'technicians' simply follow what the book says and I'd wager that if you asked many of them why you need the brke fluid changing, they'd struggle to answer apart from 'cos it sez so in the book.'

Re: Ateca FR or SE Tech

I have an 2018 tdi FR 4 drive. It was the only interior I liked so for me...out of those two I'd go for the FR, based on the seats but also on the fact that I intend to keep mine for 10 plus years ...so by then 110k or 130k miles won't make a huge difference to value. (Perhaps bear in mind that a lo...

I've done what Rory suggests twice, not had an issue and saved several thousand pounds.

Re: 1.5 EVO TSI FR DSG or Petrol 4motion

If fuel/mileage isn't an issue...out of a 2019 1.5 or a 2018 2.0 4 drive...I'd personally buy the 2.0.

Re: 1.5 EVO TSI FR DSG or Petrol 4motion

Coffeecup. Living in a pretty hilly part of the world and for the relatively small additional fuel costs I'd go with the 2.0.
I may have missed it but what annual mileage do you do and how is it broken down, town, rural, motorway ?

Re: What tyre size for R18 190PS?

I believe that the 4 drive runs on 225/50-18. The front wheel drive runs on 215/50-18 (The 19" wheels run on 235)

Re: 19" alloys on xcellence lux - snow and ice

You can also get Goodyear Vector all season tyres for about £110 (same size as above). Much the same as the michelin in all aspects...except price.

Re: 19" alloys on xcellence lux - snow and ice

Where is the best place to get advice on winter tyres and/or narrow rims? I find the whole subject rather confusing. I asked my local tyre specialist about winter tyres and all they could offer was a premium big name brand at > £250 each or Minerva economy Winter tyres at £103 each. Internet search...
