Re: Rear Fog Lights 1 or 2 ?

Been like this for years. My 1998 Passat was the same except it had the fittings in the other light so adding a bulb was no problem.
My 2010 Yeti only had one rear fog.

The Skoda rubber mats I use came from the Yeti.

Re: Karoq 1.5 DSG consumption

Slapdash?

Real users in the real world are surely more accurate than the published figures.

Re: Cross climate tyres from Yeti to Karoq

If the Yeti tyres are bigger then the Karoq speedo will under read. Speedos must never under read. They can legally over read but by not more than 10%. Another factor is the wheel offset, the ET. The Yeti wheels will be substantially different from the Karoq. I think the Karoq ET is 45. You will als...

Re: What annoys you about your Karoq?

Why can’t it coast in normal drive mode. That’s the main reason I use Eco. Tom Does coasting actually save any fuel? An injected engine will shut off fuel completely when on the over-run and so use nothing, but if it is coasting the car will need to use fuel to prevent the engine stalling. I am sur...

Re: Engine warm-up time

Petrols always warm up quicker. More of the fuel energy is lost in heat.
Diesels are more efficient in converting fuel to power.
Don’t worry about it.
