Re: Noise when turning sharp right/left

I agree with you that black rims look nice. I'll order something similar. These are the winterrims I have on my other car. Screenshot_20200202-074503_Gallery.jpg Sorry for the late response. Are these the Dezent Black mat? They look nice! To be honest, the black gloss on the rims mats perfectly wit...

Re: Noise when turning sharp right/left

I am also in Sweden and all websites like gummihuset, däck365, dackonline, bythjul recommend 6.5Jx16 ET38. They can't be all wrong. Did you find a decent deal and which rim did you go for? I went for these rims https://www.gummihuset.se/Produkt/F%C3%A4lgar/Aluminiumf%C3%A4lgar/gh_edition/beat_black...

Re: Noise when turning sharp right/left

VW recommends offset ET35 with 16" wheels. I don't know how sensitive it is on T-cross, but I'll try to get as close as possible when I purchase winter tires. We're waiting for our blue T-cross GT 115DSG. Planned buildweek is w12 so planned ETA in Sweden is beginning of May. Will replace our Renaul...

Re: Noise when turning sharp right/left

My rims are ET38 so not a big difference. Can't be that huge compared to ET35.

Noise when turning sharp right/left

I'm using 205/60 R16 winter tyres for my T-Cross and I have noticed that every time I take a sharp left or right turn there is a noise at the front, like that the wheel touches the plastic inside. All the websites that I have checked say that 205/60 for 16 inches rim are ok for the T-Cross. Have you...

Re: Rust remover for brake rotors?

There are some brake disc cleaning sprays in the market but don't know if they really work.

Rust remover for brake rotors?

Any recommendations for a rust remover from the brake rotors?
After every car wash the rotors get rusty the next morning and with braking all the rust goes on my black rims which looks bad.

Re: This is me

Ok, 1 month in and we're both delighted with the T. Have to say I'm amazed it's just a 3 pot 1 litre as I never feel it's lacking in poke or pull. This with my usual drive being a 2 litre 177 ps Tiguan! The jury's still out on lane keeping. Misses has found here in the countryside with all the heav...

Re: Engine cutting out at low speed

Check this video from VW regarding Auto Start Stop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDZc9arqLm4 Go to 1:24 about Automatic transmission. According to VW, "When you press the brake pedal the motor stops just before you stand still"...So unfortunately that's the way it is and we can't do anything abou...

Re: Engine cutting out at low speed

The last 2 days I was trying to reproduce this with ACC. When ACC is active, the engine doesn't cut down at low speed (<10km/h) but waits until the whole car goes stationary. When I drive the car and approach a traffic light, the engine cuts down at the 2nd gear with ~10km/h. If i won't regulate the...
