Re: Air Con turns on at Startup

I leave my aircon on all year round. Great on a cold or wet day for demisting the windscreen..or indeed keeping in clear through your journey.

Re: Ask for numberplate if ordering towbar

When I ordered mine..I did ask cheekily when they are printing the number plates could they do an extra rear one...and they did!

Re: Pilot assist in crawling traffic - your opinion?

AWD is not just about offroad though. AWD gives so many benefits as soon as there is an element of slip power switches...so no more wheelspin when you try and pull out on a hill/loose gravel chippings...much improved power distribution when going around roundabouts etc...then when you park on the we...

Re: How did I get map update

I updated my maps this morning via the sim. I suspect it took 10 mins max..I was pleased how quickly the %complete number was increasing. It seems to be taking longer configuring itself though

If you have a garage to keep your car in rather than the junk many people keep in theirs...then you likely won...

Re: iPhone functionality without CarPlay?

Why does Volvo not fit CarPlay as standard like most of other manufacturers? If you want it, it's a £300 option. Ridiculous.

Re: Towball Install

The advantage of the dealer fitted unit is it comes with the auto deploy..switches in the boot...and fully interfaces with the cars electronics...not just the usual electrics but the reversing sensors..BLIS etc

I had a dealer fit one installed on mine before collection.

Re: Protecting diamond cut alloys

The XC40 may well have chunkier tyres than the V40 which might well offer more protection. Mine are standing up well.
