Re: Modified rear lights

Each to their own. Personally, I rather like the taillights, it is one of the few parts of the overall design that is distinctive and recognisable as a Karoq rather than just another euro box SUV.

Just my personal view. If you like the added reflector strips, that's great.

Have fun,


Ian.

Re: Key failure with no warning

Colin, No, I did not use the physical key as it was dark, so I could not see which handle end cover to remove (and the book does not make that clear, now that I have checked again). I also had no tools other than the key and nothing with which to protect the paintwork. I was not helped by the batter...

Key failure with no warning

Yesterday the battery in my key died. No warning that it was low, no apparent reduction in operating range. It worked to get me to my destination but when I returned to the car nothing. No response from the car, no red light on the key… Fortunately, I was only about 10 miles from home and so could g...

Re: Winter wheels and tyres

I loathe the standard tyres on my Karoq. They have almost no grip off the line and spin at the slightest provocation. Despite that, they are absolutely fine when cornering. Anyway, I have Cross Climates on my Yeti and loved them under all conditions so I have been waiting for Continental to release ...

Re: UPDATE OF YOUR SYSTEM COLUMBUS

To be honest, I have not bothered to update my maps. If I need good navigation my old Garmin unit is far superior to the built-in system (as well as being far cheaper to buy and easier to update).

Have fun,


Ian.

Re: Condensation on head/fog lights

I can't say I've paid any attention to it on the Karoq but my previous car, a Yeti, often had condensation in the lights when cold. It soon cleared when I drove it.

Have fun,


Ian.

Re: Hardwiring Dashcam

I had my dashcam fitted by www.dashcampros.uk They posted the camera to me and then came and fitted it a day or two later. Excellent, tidy job and polite, friendly service. I could not fault them and the fitting price was rather better than the Skoda dealership wanted for fitting.

Have fun,


Ian.

Re: Dynamic chassis control & Canton Sound

Neil, I am with Colin on the Adaptive Cruise Control, I have it in my Karoq and recently drove my wife's car (which has the standard cruise control) I really did not expect to miss the ACC as much as I did. If I were to specify another car today, the two "absolutely must-haves" would be ACC and the ...

Re: Dynamic chassis control & Canton Sound

I listened to a Canton system in the showroom and then tried the standard system in another car. I'm blowed if I could hear any difference. Add in the background noise of a moving car and I suspect the only benefit of the Canton system is bragging rights. In the end, you pays your money and makes yo...
