Not too sure about three cylinder myself, feels a bit Citroën Dyane too me. I'd like to hear thatvrun. I would be happy not to have lots of chrome but with the alcantara upholstery. I don't think the chrome will keep well and the leather will split if you keep the car long term as I do, so I would have been happy to option them out if you could.

Did read some adverse stuff about keyless entry on VW Golf 7s today. The issue was the boot wasn't covered very well in sensing the fod, people were putting their jackets, racket sets etc with key in the boot and finding themselves locked out as the car auto locked but didn't pick up the keys were present. Something too look out for with Kessy entry, keep the keys with you to be on the safe side.

The Chrome window surrounds and Aluminium roof rails wont tarnish if cared for properly. Ive had similar on my A3 in the past and with the right care the looked great. But same goes for the paintwork and trims, treat it all well from the start and the car will continue to look its best for years to come. Ill be spending a good few hours every month cleaning and detailing the car along with the weekly washes.

Now Autoglym leather cleaner and conditioning balm had kept the leather interior in my Audi perfect and that had 156000 miles on when i parted with it in July. Again with the correct care you wont see any problems with the leather seats. Remember they design car seats to take a lot of sliding in and out of and stitch and join fabric so it doesnt do that. So in my opinion Tell its wrong to assume that they will split.

And Kessey is designed to pick up the key in the boot along with in close proximity to the vehicle, the key inside will prevent the vehicle from locking, or so i read anyway.

I'll check my car cleaning supplies to see whether in many Xmas presents I got given leather cleaner. I was brought up with leather seats before they moved to cloth and they were horribly cracked. I reckon after 12 years it will just age into cracks and splits as my leather coats did, and they we're cheap.

Surprising on the VW Mk7s key sensing, it was a common fault. I know there are diagrams on the Kessy proximity for the Ateca. Some Mk7 owners tried to simulate but didn't succeed, others just got locked out and that was due to the key being put down in the boot, proximity sensor not reading the key in the boot. I'll keep mine in my shoulder bag or trouser pocket then switch to rucksack if using that or coat not in the boot, days of suites and jackets long gone. Don't trust trouser pockets for it not to slip out. Seems to effect the sporting types and people putting their jackets in the boot for security and getting the ultimate security.

Years back, must have been 98/99, I bought a Calibra turbo with leather interior, got it 4yrs old on 70k, in immaculate condition, sold it six years later on about 130k, leather still in great nick, with zero splits, rips or tears..
Did the entire interior with the autoglym stuff every month.. Kept it lovely..

Ha, it reminds me actually, girl I was seeing at the time had these really expensive designer black leather knee boots, I praised the autoglym so much, one wknd she used it on her boots, the leather went so soft every time she wore them they just collapsed into a heap around her ankles and she stopped wearing them and binned them in the end... Pmsl.

Another what car review, this time for the 1.0 in standard SE form. Gets a bit boring after a while reading how good the car is! :p For my part I couldn't believe it was a 1.0 when I test drove it, it makes no more engine noise than any other car I have driven. I'd suggest it was quiet in fact. Certainly nothing to worry about in regards to the engine.

Our favorite German reviewer (Thomas) from the Autogefühl you-tube channel has just released another excellent 51 min video review of the Xcellence trim in the 1.4 TSI & Lava blue colour :D

He's my favourite. Lava Blue lovely, not sure why it's called that.

He did say in relation to the leather skin "option full animal skin but you should not ofcourse go for them". Think he's a veggie which would explain his lean looks that's just before 8:20, it could be the mountain biking and listening to club music with the copilot also covered.

The videos good, actually saw the panoramic roof blind come back in that. It did look pretty dark with the blind pulled, from 17:00.

Space you got in the boot with a spare, 20: 00. This is where the VW guy said you can pull out the filler form if you want more space in the Tiguan - any comments. I assume it's glued in ?. You also see the triangle box straps, top right.
