Re: Phase 4 ICTP (188) ONLY For 17c / 3.5 see other threads.

Does the inbuilt Bluetooth car phone connection kit use the antenna on top of the car perhaps ? Then if connected via AA or ACP it uses the phones antenna ? Anyone know ? Also, are you placing the phone somewhere else depending on how its connected to the car ? Personally I've not noticed any diffe...

Re: Phase 4 ICTP (188) ONLY For 17c / 3.5 see other threads.

I've been using Android Auto (AA) for a couple of weeks now and there is one enormous drawback that I am experiencing. On my 17.8 mile commute home I often make calls to friends and family. When connecting to the car with Bluetooth and making calls using the ICTP phone function calls can be made suc...

Re: Real World Diesel MPG

You can usually tell when a regen is underway / happened as the fuel consumption for a trip of 20-30 minutes or more drops by about 10mpg. Particularly noticeable if you run the same route repeatedly, e.g. commuting. Thanks Dashnine that totally puts my mind at ease. I drive the exact same 17.8 mil...

Re: Employees at Solihull after job losses play a joke

I was only asking.

And I do agree it's nothing more than a "strong words of advice" offence.

IMHO imitation bomb vests ain't funny. A bit like going to a fancy dress party as KKK, it just ain't funny.

Re: Drive .. Park .. EPB .. help :-)

It certainly would be unlikely for unmodified vehicles which have met all necessary vehicle standards to be accused of having dazzling brake lights.

Re: Drive .. Park .. EPB .. help :-)

According to The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989 the offence would be where the vehicle lights are "Used so as to cause undue dazzle or discomfort to other persons using the road".

Re: Power Steering Failure

If I google Catastrophic Failure there is a largely unanimous consensus of opinion that "A catastrophic failure is a sudden and total failure from which recovery is impossible."

Re: Phase 4 ICTP (188) ONLY For 17c / 3.5 see other threads.

So my dealer was right in installing the smartphone pack as part of the upgrade with no charge when doing Phase 4, and other dealers are taking the piss by trying to charge? I think that some are taking the opportunity to charge simply because they are providing something that isn't part of the upg...
