Re: Sun Visors. Anyone have any comments/concerns?

The other user of my car got a sun visor extension thingy from Halfords. It helped her a lot.

Only issue I see is that the clip is quite tight and I like to take it off when I'm driving, so it is marking some light scruffs/scratches on the Volvo visor.

Re: Parking climate

I ran remote start this morning and the steering wheel and driver seat heaters were on. Plus the windscreen thingy was on too - all the ice had melted.

Just need to figure out how to get the pax side heater on too.

Climate control was off even though it's set in my profile to be 17c both sides.

Re: Off Road anyone tried it yet?

Nice to see some photos of the xc40 off the blacktop. I reread my post and I probably didn't put it as well as I could've but my experiences with off-road is well beyond the average field or dirt tracks and more akin to quarries, rockeries, forests and deserts. So when I took the xc40 off the blackt...

Re: Hello from South Africa

Nice motor Chris, where abouts in ZA are you? I did a 14,000 miles road trip across ZA (and other countries) last year, albeit in a Land Rover Defender from Cape Town!

Re: Lane Mitigation

Bob, surely the vehicle you are overtaking benefit from you indicating your intention to change lanes. It may focus that driver's mind that you are going to overtake him? I indicate regardless. Make it a subconscious habit and I don't have to think about my steps and concentrate on more important th...

Re: XC40 or Jaguar E Pace torn between the two. Help.

Ever since I heard about the E-pace long before it was on sale, following through the developments, I was really interested in it, as I didn't like the F-Pace much and it was too big for me, the baby Pace seemed so much better. I got a bit obsessed with getting an E-Pace. I got one of the first test...

Re: Sold it!

Interesting to hear your dealer bought it back off you. I'm toying with the idea as I'm spending much more time in Australia than expected but I'm on a PCP.

Waiting to see you back one day with a T8 XC40, polestarred with lava carpet, 19" and bright silver paint. ;)

Which driver support mode do you use most? Pilot Assist/Speed limiter/Adaptive Cruise Control

Curious to know which driver support modes you use the most and for what style of driving (motorway/town/country)? I'm tending to use the adaptive cruise control a lot across all manner of driving. I did use speed limiter with traffic sign recognition but that was quickly abandoned when it was picki...
