Re: Colour choice

My car is Rodium Grey and looks great when polished up. Not much chance of that recently. My first colour choice was Jungle Green but I changed my mind (chickened out) when I couldn't find any real examples to look at. My car is now two and a half years old so no last minute colour change coming up...

Re: Ceramic coating dilemma

I am just using Gtechniq C2 liquid nano coat every other month, it takes just 5 min to apply, no hassle, no haze, no elbow grease whatsoever and it seals the paint, gives a nice hydrophobic effect and makes washing the car much easier. But then, I wash my car myself, I don't trust a street hand wash...

Re: New to seat

Check the tyre pressure, dealers often get it surprisingly wrong. Check if it has the latest software update, especially if it's 1.5 EVO.

Re: Replace Ateca driver chair with Tiguan/Karoq/Q3(?)

Have you considered Cupra Ateca bucket sport seats ? I was told they are just great. Test drive it if you can.

Re: Brake noise when reversing

i have posted it in another thread, will copy it here: what helps me (not always) - as soon as I hear this noise, I stop, put it in neutral, back in reverse and start moving again. Often the sound disappears.

Re: Rear brake noise

Definitely brakes. Only slow reversing. Noticed one or two others on forum had similar so will e mail. Its not just loud its embarrassingly so. That's what I first thought as well. Had the brakes cleaned and inspected by the dealer, didn't help. What helps sometimes - when I hear this noise, I stop...

Re: Brake noise when reversing

I get this problem too and when I queried it with my dealer they stated it is OK, nothing to worry about and quite common with cars which have the DGS gearbox. I insisted they noted it on my vehicle records just in case a problem develops later. I have the same problem with a manual car. The SEAT m...

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

The choice of colours for Ateca is also surprisingly poor considering SEAT's "young and sporty" image. Grey, dark blue, white, black and red... The palette is strangely conservative.

Start/Stop on a cold engine

Does the ECU automatically disable the Star/Stop function when the engine is still cold? I noticed recently that S/S was not enabled for the first several minutes on several occasions, but still not sure if it was programmed that way or it was just a coincident. I usually switch it off for the first...

Re: 1.5 new updates...there's now 4!

Hmm, I have had only one update, have no problems with 2nd gear whatsoever, on a cold start it may wobble in 1st a bit sometimes if no gas pedal pressed, and I am on 34 mpg. Still thinking if it is worth to get another update...
