Re: Still a rarity?

I have seen about 4 in one year probably the same one twice. There appears to
be more T Rocs around but of course it is an earlier car.

Re: ENGINE EMISSIONS POTENTIAL PROBLEM

Strange, the emissions orange warning light disappeared the day I was due to go to garage so cancelled booking. Car due a service end of month so will ask a few pertinent questions then.

ENGINE EMISSIONS POTENTIAL PROBLEM

I am not having much luck at the moment as a new problem has since arisen with an orange warning engine/emissions sign showing on dash. Have booked car into garage tomorrow. Have recently noticed that my MPG is poor compared to many on this forum and put it down to frequent short journeys. Also noti...

Re: NAIL IN TYRE

Yes Digital racer, the AA technician said there were better gel like repair kits around which were easier to clean off tyre body but he warned against most of the kits supplied with car. Would you mind telling me how much you paid for your spacesaver and where did you get it? I have a problem with m...

NAIL IN TYRE

I have been driving around for a couple of weeks now with a small nail firmly embedded in tyre wondering whether to use the Tyre repair kit that came with the car. Had a chat with an AA repair chap who strongly advised against using this kit as when you eventually took tyre to garage it would prove ...

Re: Battery Charger

Purchased a CTEK MXS 5 Battery charger. Am puzzled whether I should connect the negative black connector direct to the battery terminal or should it be connected to the chassis. Apparently the latter is advisable if the car has a BMS Battery management system -- not sure if the T cross has. Advice p...

R line review

It's not often one sees a review of the R line so if anyone is interested click on link below. Quite a good fairly recent Aussi review and the first time I have heard a presenter who prefers the 18 inch wheels. Car came with a spare wheel! Of course I am biased owning the exact same model and colour...

Shifter paddles

Image Anyone got these fitted? They may only apply to R line DSG models and come in 4 colours I think. I would choose red which looks smart. Bit of a luxury I guess although the normal paddles are a bit on the titchy side.
