Re: Not liking the DSG in auto.

I have a question - at what speed does the coasting activate? I ask this because on my BMW X1 25d, coasting is only available in Eco-pro mode and the car only coasts if it as a speed above 30mph. After some tests that I did today, coasting activates over 60kmh (roughly 40mph) Wow! Are you sure? I’v...

Re: From Order Number to Build Week Confirmed

5c notification this morning and I suspect it is already in the UK as a vehicle carrier from Emden arrived in the Port Of Tyne last night. It most probably is. Mine arrive at Grimsby port on Friday evening and I'm still stuck on 5c. I'm assuming it'll get updated to Stage 6 soon as they allocate a ...

Re: 150bhp TDI 2wd MPG

Hi All, I’m curious to see what other 150bhp 2wd drivers are getting MPG wise? I’ve just hit 10,000km and I’m getting about 43mpg, I must admit I thought I’d be getting better than this. I do mostly motorway driving, 130kph for about 30mins and I notice that on this journey I get about 40mpg. When ...

Re: Tiguan Allspace 1.5 TSI

I wanted to to test drive the 1.5 Tsi but the dealer said there was none available. Rung around everywhere. Prior to our current car (2016 BMW X1 25d xDrive 230bhp Auto) we had a 218i BMW Gran Tourer (3 cylinder petrol 128bhp), and that was horrible in terms of pulling and mpg. I was glad to get rid...

Re: Tiguan Allspace 1.5 TSI

Sorry for the confusion. I thought it was 3 cylinder. I did consider the 1.5 when ordering mine, but I was given the same advice re low end torque being better on a diesel so it suited to the Tiguan better. Otherwise ,I probably would have gone for it myself as I only do 7000 miles per year.

Re: Tiguan Allspace 1.5 TSI

I’m sure the low end torque from a diesel is much better for a car this size to get it moving than a 3-pot petrol. No? Seein as you’ve ordered a petrol, I’m assuming you do low miles so the car will most probably someone time on short low speed journeys. I’m sure having to lug a heavy car on a low p...

Re: Tiguan Allspace 1.5 TSI

Won’t a 1.5tsi engine be a little underpowered for an AllSpace?
Correct me if I’m wrong.
