Funny thing is when I changed at the end of the year to Three all my spotify problems disappeared. My local area is a bit hit and miss for Voda coverage but even n...

Re: Which options / packs are a must?

Also I forgot to mention - remote start can be configured that it will also start the seat & steering wheel heating if the outside temp is below a set figure. One thing to remember about remote start is to not use it if, like me, you keep the car in a garage and its a petrol/Diesel engine. I know th...

Re: Which options / packs are a must?

Interesting to see what people think are the musts - and no surprises from me as they are the same a most people that have replied. Must Haves: Service Plan - 5 Years for £599, my first minor service would have been around £270 on its own so this is a must if you are keeping the car for a while. Ada...

Re: Serious safety incident – Volvo XC40 recharge

Good luck getting this sorted out As this is Doves of Croydon I know a place you can check your collision avoidance system - Wickham Court Road. The mix of parked cars and the traffic islands sets mine off quite often. I have had it happen on the Motorway as well but only with good cause (usually an...

Re: T4/T5... really any difference?

I test drove the T4/T5 and D4 and noticed a massive difference between the petrol and diesel as you would expect.

Re: Map Update - Version 1320

Now switch the car off to complete the update. Next day, it had completed. At no time did I see a percentage progress bar. If you go back into the download centre and click on updates and then the map update you get a percentage figure. I was sat waiting in the car while my wife was shopping - in t...
