Re: Heated Mirrors

That’s what I thought, I find that incredibly irritating! It’s a rubbish way VW do it, same on our old Octavia. You have to set to heated then when you go to reverse there no dip so you then have to manually change it and wait for it to dip. I simply don’t understand why they did it this way. In my...

Re: Heated Mirrors

So are you saying that with the rotary dial in L for the dip the heating still works and it doesn’t have to be turned to the heating icon? I have checked this out on my car this morning. If the switch is set to Mirror heating, the mirror heating works (at 11 degrees C this morning), but the mirror ...

Re: Heated Mirrors

I’m not sure, as I have yet to try the dip.
If I get to try it I’ll post back.

Re: Heated Mirrors

I'll try the reverse dip (used to have it on my old Vauxhall Insignia estate, and found it very useful....but didn't have cameras), and I've checked the mirrors, and they do get warm to the touch. Thanks

Fuel Tank Capacity

Hi, Having done about 1500 miles in my Allspace, I get the impression that the fuel tank is smaller than it was in my original 16 plate. I am wondering if the seat recess might be to "blame" for this. It's not a problem, it's just that I used to get about £75 into my old car, but can't get near this...

Re: Heated Mirrors

Hi,
I've got all round Cameras, so don't need the mirror to dip, but I'll bear that in mind

Re: In Eco mode or Not .

I've got into the habit now of pressing the mode switch and selecting Economy on the info screen every time I start off if I want eco mode. I have tried a few times to get it to coast in D but it's only done it once in about 7 times i've tried, and then it took about 5 goes to get it to show. Even i...

Heated Mirrors

Now the weather is getting colder, I'm wondering about the heated mirors. On my old Tig, the mirrors used to go into heat mode automatically (I think, as they used to steam when icy). Now I know we haven't had ice yet, but, I'm wondering if my R-Line Allspace is the same. It does have a switch in th...
