Re: Cracked Panoramic Roof

It might not be ‘a lot’ but it’s certainly worth checking, a previous thread (https://www.discosportforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5026) listed Hastings, RAC and LRs own insurance as not covering the pano roof as ‘glass’. Just checked my Hastings policy, and have discovered the above to be correc...

Re: Cracked Panoramic Roof

Who are “a lot” of insurance companies? Can you quantify that statement, specifically? Perhaps you could provide us with an exhaustive list of those that don’t, seeing as you seem to know so much about who does/doesn’t cover it under glass breakage? For the benefit of fellow members, you understand...

Re: Cracked Panoramic Roof

It is made of laminated glass the same as the windscreen so unlikely to be heat. But as it is brand new, I suggest you contact the dealer just in case there was a manufacturing issue.
But otherwise, as above, normally covered by fully comp insurance.

Re: InControl Touch Upgrade - Is it worth It?

Nope! Unless you are having any issues I would leave it alone. You are better off buying a class 10 SD card: Speed up the SavNav with a class 10 SD card. I use a Mac so used Disk Utility to take a complete image (clone) of the SD card and then restored it to a new class 10 SD card. The main speed im...

Re: New Used DS16 Owner - Jumping through all familiar faults!

Under the UK Consumer Rights Act 2015 you do not have to give them one chance at repair if the fault was within 30 days of purchase. “ The law states that a vehicle must be of a satisfactory quality, fit for purpose and as described. If it’s not, you’re entitled to hand it back and get all your mone...

Re: DS 2015 2.2L Oil Level Increases

Could be water or coolant. You could try the following (stolen from the Internet!): 1. Remove the engine oil dipstick. Bubbles on the stick, a brownish residue just above the oil level, or milky-brown oil with a thick consistency are all indications of water in the oil. 2. Check for white, sweet sme...
