Re: Keeping the car ticking over

I have read this string with great interest and can honestly say we have never had any problems leaving our car for extended periods of time, we go on holidays of around 1 to 3 months around 2 to 3 times a year and jump in and go as if it was never left, never had any problems, not even the battery....

Re: AC - on or off

I'm the same as you, just have it on when needed ie to de-mist and keep cool in the summer and just for interest, I have never had any problems with the aircon system over all the years, although we only keep our cars between 2 and 3 years.

Re: MPG - Again :-)

The same here, very poor MPG and after 4006 miles on the clock and driven like Miss Daisy, just had its first service last week so asked about the MPG and they said 28 is about right. If this is what I could have expected I would have chosen a different car, our other option was a Porsche Macan but ...

Re: Harman Kardon stereo?

Yet another Harman Kardon disappointment, although I have only had the car for three day's now, the sound system is not a patch on my previous two cars which had Mark Levinson systems and I definitely don't like the dash mounted woofer at all, it makes it very front heavy and you only get surround s...

Hi to all Picked the car up yesterday from Doves Croydon and had done a few decent trips so far and reasonably pleased with it, just a couple of minor glitches The first of which is the wrong wheels, very strange indeed and not the end of the world as it should have come with the 924 - 19" wheels bu...

I will be getting rid our current car which is a Lexus RC 300h F Sport in sonic red, completely unmarked with full LSH -...

Re: Poll: Lead times ( from order till delivery)

I ordered my XC40 in the beginning of August and given a estimated delivery date of the end of March 2019, I had a call a couple of months ago to say that the delivery date had been brought forward to the 29th January, this was good news and just had confirmation that the target delivery was still o...
