Re: Dealer Limitations

OP....to your original point, if it is a once in a while event, long journey with a cool box, why not just run a 3m plug/socket extention from the in cabin socket to the boot ? Less than a tenner.

Re: Dealer Limitations

All my recent dealings with main dealers of various sorts (Ford being the worst) have been dire. I pay monthly for a 2 service 'deal' with Seat and as soon as that is over with, I'll be going to an indie mechanic...not a main dealer 'technician' trained to plug a computer in and act upon what the co...

Re: Have I been had?!?!

It sounds like the over promising/under delivering scenario that so many seem to be guilty of now. I certainly wouldn't put up with constantly being fobbed off

Sorry if I have confused the issue, but...
I think you probably have confused the sale somewhat. The OP put a photo of what a buyer would get. Pretty straightforward really.

Re: Lux 2.0 TSI 4Drive Petrol

DM Keith seem to have gone the way of many small family companies that expand too much and lose that personal touch. (It really isn't rocket science to treat customers properly) I went to look at a Skoda Karoq at their Bradford showroom 3 years ago. Several sales people couldn't be bothered to get o...

Winter Tyres

Now is a good time to look at getting winter tyres....especially as Vredestein are offering a £50 cashback offer on buying 4.
I've just order 4, 215/50-18 for less than £80 each delivered. Add a tenner a tyre for fitting and I'll be good for next Winter

Re: Washing car

One bucket. Sheepskin mit thing and whatever 5 litre car wash stuff was on offer at Halfords. I've gone thru the whole 'clay bar', 3 coats of polish thing and really didn't notice that much difference for all the extra effort. I give it a polish in Spring and that does me for the next 12 mths. (It's...

Re: Are Windscreen Wipers Poor Quality

My original ones were OK, they have lasted 19k miles/2 years now. I replaced them last month with a set of Valeo ones from Eurocarparts. (Valeo are original equipment on many new cars and are good quality) The original ones may well be poor quality but until they stop working, leave them be. (All th...

Re: FR ALLOYS TO SWAP/FOR SALE

I presume they include the tyres? What tread is left on the tyres, and how much are they ?

Re: charging battery

If it needed checking by professionals, that would rule out the 'technicians' at pretty much every SEAT main dealer. Very few will be apprentice trained mechanics, they're expert at plugging in a computer and the computer tells them what needs doing..... Sounds like money making nonsense to me. What...
