Re: Auto stop start delay please!

For those with the DSG try left-foot braking. Braking with the left foot allows a slight depression of the accelerator pedal so that S/S doesn't cut in in situations like roundabouts, right turns etc. It takes a bit of getting used to but is particularly useful for low speed manoeuvring.

Re: Have I made the right decision?

Mine wasn't a "proper" BMW Colin (not in BMW circles anyway ;) ). Front wheel drive you see so definitely not considered a real beamer by the cognoscenti. Probably why it was never in any danger of catching fire! :lol:

Re: Have I made the right decision?

Re: And a Suffolk Karoq

It would be a dull old world if we all agreed ! Well that's one thing we can certainly agree on! :lol: I suspect my assessment was coloured partly by coming from a diesel in the first place and one with a very good engine and auto gear box (8 speed) combo - probably the two best things about the BM...

Re: What did you drive before the Karoq?

BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer and before that a couple of Honda CRVs (not at the same time though) and before that cars too numerous and varied to recall. The BMW was okay but had the most uncomfortable seats I've ever experienced in a car (an experience similar to GeoffH above), also various squeeks, ra...

And a Suffolk Karoq

Hello from sunny(ish) Suffolk. I didn't intend to get a Karoq last weekend but that's what happened :D . Test drove a 1.5 TSI DSG first and to be honest I wasn't that keen. I liked the car but that combination of engine and DSG didn't suite it - plenty of hesitation and wasn't particularly well mann...
