Re: air recirculation ?

Interesting wording using “can” but.... Climatronic The Climatronic can have a sensor that measures the air recirculation mode and automatically turns on if there is an increased concentration of pollutants in the incoming air. When the pollutant concentration decreases to the normal level, the reci...

Re: Run flat tyres? Winter tyres? Michelin CrossClimate tyres?

Thanks Tom, I have sent an email to the Skoda garage where I have ordered my car, to find out whether it's possible to downgrade from 18" to 17" wheels on an SE-L without having to buy a completely separate set of alloys.

Re: Drive mode - remembering/storing preferred default mode

There are different views on this. I had the individual set to Eco and heavier steering. I found that the gearbox would reset itself to normal D mode but the steering stayed the same. The interesting part was that my wife complained when driving, and using her key, that the steering was heavy. I the...

Re: Diesel particle filter

Modern diesels and short journeys don’t mix. Too many failed regenerations as well as blocking the dpf also brings into play the possibility of engine oil dilution by unburnt diesel (check engine oil level regularly and beware if it is raised).

Re: KESSY

I thought that once you had access to the OBD port you could then reprogram a new key.
