Re: Seat Ateca 19" Alloys

Well looking at the photos they've both got the part number cast into the back of the spoke, so I'd say they're SEAT OEM rims. As to size of wheel, the 19" won't fill the arch any more than the 17" do. The rolling circumference (and therefore the overall diameter) is exactly the same (when...

Re: Rooftop Bags

You can also go down the route of a "basket" fitted to the roof bars, then a bag in the basket. That may be easier to store. But loads of roof boxes on eBay too.

Re: Sat Nat update - facelift Ateca 2021

It might also mean that after the first year of Seat connect being free you will have to pay for it or not have any navigation map updates!! Or am I just being cynical? Yep, that looks to be likely. Inevitable really, get people hooked, then start charging. But as you'll have CarPlay etc, with up t...

Re: Perpetually "Reading USB1..."

Do other iPhones behave properly using that cable? It could be as simple as the connection on the iPhone 7 is flaky or dirty if other iPhones are ok and the cable works with others.

Re: Erratic Fuel Consumption Digital Display

The first figures are the “instantaneous” readings, so will vary from 999mpg on the overrun (or whatever SEAT set as a max) to 10mpg on heavy acceleration. The second is the average figure. I’d think 26mpg is a wee bit low for an average on a 1.5 manual (not so much on my Cupra!) but your engine is ...
