Re: 230 R-Line Tech different on DVLA

Scary isn't it. Personally I always check that once a Reg lookup is completed - it asks you to check "is this your vehicle?" Also as my car was still on its way from the factory that I manually completed the spec. More room for insurers to wiggle out of payment in the event of a claim if any of thos...

Re: 230 R-Line Tech different on DVLA

My R line is a lease (MY20) and all the lookups say its a manual
Doesn't bother me too much for resale, unless it would be cheaper for me to buy at the end of the lease... :D

Re: Tig slow to start up.Starter turns twice.

The Accessory sockets (12v - USB etc) do stay 'live' for a while after you turn off, but they shouldn't be permanently on. I used to have a 3g dongle in the boot permanently and it would start up when I started the car. i.e. don't worry - if it's still live when you go to start the car, then you've ...

Re: New Member doing my research before buying

Nice feedback there. I found out last night that the new 2021 Ateca has the Cupra overhaul, but I am still thinking I would like a nice powered petrol Tig, I think if I am honest, the Tig R, will be too much of a fuel money burner, and therefore, an R-line with a nice 200+ bhp would be perfect. I r...

Re: SAT NAV Update for Mac OS Tutorial/Instructions

I have never been able to get DiscoverCare to work using my Mac It either doesn't recognise the card (the Mac does) or on the one time it did recognise it, it wouldn't start the update as said disc had insufficient capacity. Do I just delete everything on the card in the hope that this will work? D...

Re: New Member doing my research before buying

JK, the boot is the cause for concern. I then thought about the Cupra Ateca, but you can tell it doesn't have the same DNA, using marketing speak. I watched lots of reviews about the Ateca, then compared to the Formentor, I dont care so much for the over priced exhausted system and I am older enoug...

I quite like the Formentor myself. My lease is up in 2 years so who knows where we'll be by then :)

Re: New Member doing my research before buying

Hi Colin and Welcome to the Forum Nice to see you're considering your options. As far as the spec of those options goes, you mention Winter Pack? The pack name remains the same, even if you have half (or 80%) installed already. So looking at the brochure, you can see what you get as std and what you...

Re: New Tiguan Facelift R-Line owner

Lovely car there - I think the seat pattern would take some getting used to from the old model. Quite like the new R badge too :) JK - doesnt the 40k road tax threshold also include your options too? Or are you saying they made it an option to give people the choice between being under/over 40k? T ...
