Re: Media - No SD Cards?

Just transfer your music onto a USB memory card. I have one with a USB-C plug at one end to plug into the car socket, and a standard USB plug at the other end to plug into my PC. When in the car, the sliding cover can still close. A typical one is https://www.mymemory.co.uk/integral-128gb-fusion-dua...

Re: New owner , over from the dark side!

My Karoq is the first car I've had with a heated windscreen and steering wheel, although I've had heated seats for the last twenty odd years!

And just like the seats, it's an option I wouldn't be without now!!

Skoda Digital Certificate

I've just had an email from Skoda, linked to my Skoda Connect subscription. It appears that Skoda will be adding a free Digital Certificate service to the Remote Access package, and the email gave me a link to follow to learn more about it. Unfortunately the link didn't work, but as the service has ...

Re: Oil top up

It is quite normal for a new engine to use more oil while it is being run in, and the owner's handbook gives some good advice on how to treat it for the first thousand miles. I always buy a small bottle of oil and keep it in the boot when I buy a new car, (the low viscosity oil used in my 2.0TSI Spo...

Re: fix price sevicing

Bearing in mind you are paying up front rather than at the time, I don't see the point myself.

Re: Changes to the Highway Code

Re: Boot Floor Height

This site https://tiresize.com/comparison/ shows that the width of the tyre decreases from 8.5 inches to 4.9 inches. So if the full-size spare AND ITS PLASTIC TOOL HOLDERS/FLOOR SUPPORT are replaced by the slimmer tyre and a matching floor support, then the boot floor would be lowered by 3.6 inches....

Re: Adblue

Finally got rid of this stuff I hope. I put the floor back in the car and there's been no white crystals for nearly a week. My last effort was to use newspaper over the affected area and a warm iron. Good to know! My diesel days were pre-Adblue, so never had that problem. But I hope other diesel dr...

Re: Car Boot opens without reson

The only other cases I've heard about have been put down to the button on the key being pressed by mistake when the key was in their pocket. (The buttons have a longer range than the KESSY signal.)
