T4 Auto R-Design Pro ordered today

Post by BiddyR » Sat Oct 05, 2019 2:30 pm

Hi,

New here, lots of reading, very informative, certainly helped us in placing our order.

Been told a possible 28th November delivery, was shocked expecting 3-4 months.

Went with Thunder Grey, added convenience pack mainly for electric tail gate. Little concerned as to under bumper sensor operation, wife couldn’t get consistent operation, river dance sprung to mind. Salesman could do every try, so took it something we needed to master with time?

Otherwise very excited, amazing car, stunning looks...

Thanks all

You cracked me up with the river dance comment

The trick with the tailgate is a slow in and out with your foot, just to the right of the parking sensor which is just to the left of the number plate. Hope this makes sense!

Tailgate release takes a bit of practice but I now get it to work first time 95% of attempts.
It can be a be slow to register which sometimes makes you think it hasn’t worked. Wait for the beep to confirm.

Thanks,

Don’t recall the demo car doing a beeb, might have missed having a different time going in my head (River Dance). Can the beeb be activated de-activated in settings?

I seem to remember that there was a long thread about the boot opening dance somewhere. Try searching for 'Opening Tailgate With Foot Movement'

Lol my wife does the river dance !

Just had my T4 R Design pro over a week and so far so good.

Trying to work out all the controls will take a while e.g. what to set air con to for consistent demising without full on?

Congrats, we are very excited, super surprised at the possible quick delivery.

Think I read on here eco mode reduces aircon flow and can result in some misting, not sure if that’s your findings / issue?

Heated screen a solution ?
