Headlight washers

Post by Bigtriv » Tue Feb 23, 2021 7:24 am

Got my new 1.5 xperience lux and noticed it doesn't have headlight washers like my previous xcellence, also no little storage compartment in the left side of the boot. While I'm on my soap box, 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....

I have noticed the noise difference as well, like they have cut back on the sound proofing or something

Thanks for that Jeff. My wife is saying I'm imagining it. It sounds as though the exhaust is blowing. I wonder if it has something to do with the concealed tail pipe ??

Have the tyres got bigger, wider and lower profile than the last one you had?

Yeah they have gone from 18" to 19" but I meant on start up and tickover too, it just seems a bit less refined than my 1.4 Xcellence. Love all the extra toys though. Not sure about the "Hola Hola" voice recognition mind ;)

It could be the concealed pipe, thinner pipe material, or cutback on sound proofing. I did mentioned it to the Seat salesman when i got the car and he said the 1.4 engine was a lot better than the 1.5
