Re: Confused about which xc40 to go for

Never thought of hybrids as a good idea. They have to carry around all of the extra weight and moving parts that the combustion engine requires.
Full electric has the weight of the battery granted, but a motor at each wheel cuts down on the drive shaft, gearbox etc. Got to be the way to go surely...

Re: 3 month service/check up

Hi. Basically same story as you. Just had the three month check and software update this week. I don't mind the lighting or the reversing lamp but I 100% agree with the auto pilot being tuned too far left. It does stop me using it which seems a shame. Thus I'd like to know about the re-calibration ...

3 month service/check up

My XC40 goes in for the recall notice software update plus it's 3 month check-up tomorrow. I'm very happy with the car and can't think of any major faults to report. I've gone through a few of the threads to see what faults crop up regularly and I'm free of most of them. I have a few niggles but the...

Re: Google Earth

And do I wonder if many people will realise that Android will be the new OS - that will be pretty well hidden I suspect, much as it is on TVs - don't all Sony smart TVs (which I guess must be almost all of them) now run Android as the OS? How many Sony buyers realise that and also recognise the lin...

Re: setting headlights for UK driving

I'm not 100% sure on this but I recall reading somewhere that the LED headlights have a "flat pattern" dipped beam and therefore do not require adjustment for driving on left/right. Traditional dipped beams have a rising pattern to the passenger side. Should be easy enough to check on a narrow count...
