Re: MPG - Again :-)

Your average speed isn't very high at all, and you're in stop/start traffic, so the engine is never going to be in the optimum range for getting decent mileage out of it. If you have time one weekend, go out when it's quiet for a decent run and see if you can improve the figures. To add to the main ...

Re: Pilot Assist/ACC

You can have ACC on its own, or Pilot Assist with ACC. The left/right arrows on the left of the steering wheel let you scroll through which system you want active and then you can press the middle button to activate and deactivate it.

Re: Brake lights - Are they LED or just plain old filament

There's a thread from a while ago that suggests they are not LEDs:

Re: Replacement lava mats?

I'd imagine the parts department at your dealer would be able to order them.

Yeah, that was me getting the buttons confused. It does release automatically.

Re: New car ordered

It will be a week since I picked up the car tomorrow. Generally, I like the car, especially the way it looks inside and out. There are a few things I don't like, however: * Fuel consumption is pretty bad. The display is showing around 37mpg. At the rate I'm going, I'll be lucky to get 350 miles out ...

Re: Thunder Grey

Are you sure that's Thunder Grey? It looks more like Osmium Grey to me. Osmium is darker, and less blue than Thunder Grey. Those 20" Pirellis look to be the same as on my R-Design Pro - Pirelli P-Zero 245/45 R20 V 103 with "VOL" marking (EU rating B/B/70). These seem to be the standard on most cars ...

Re: 360 Camera

I've been driving my XC40 for nearly a week now, and the 360 degree camera is one of the least impressive parts of the car. Previously I had a C-Class with the same sort of set up, and that was very good. * The resolution seems a bit low. * It needs more lines for guidance. The yellow ones are a bit...

Re: Glacier Silver T4

Interesting colour - quite distinctive! It almost looks matt in some of the the photos. I assume it's a normal shiny metallic in person?
