Re: Sports exhaust system

That’s the thing though, sports exhaust (to me anyway) means louder, noisier, annoying residents and pedestrians, breaching noise pollution limits, and should carry points and a fine (actually does, but the police don’t enforce it). They drive me made where I live.

Re: Sports exhaust system

I agree with Chris, why would you? It’s an SUV/crossover, not a sports car. The engine sounds bad enough as it is.

I’ve got one or two rattles, but it’s keys or tins of boiled sweets hidden away! Take those out, and suddenly the rattles disappear.

Re: Headlight washers

Re: Headlight washers

I have a xc40 Momentum Pro D3 Auto, which was sold as having that feature: headlight washer. How do you know it works when you are behind the wheels? Has anyone seen it function at all? If so, how do you get it started? Thanks. Do you have the cut-outs in the bumper? If so, you should have them. Yo...

I haven’t had any problems with mine. Not sure about that: Does it really have to 'show' or is there an elemen...
