Re: Faulty Antenna

They asked me to do the same before (delete and re-install the InControl App) and it didn't help.

Re: Faulty Antenna

The problem on my car has returned! :? :? :x :x

I've booked in for the dealer to have a look next week, along with the frequent drop of bluetooth connection to my phone.

Re: Faulty Antenna

I've had similar issues and the antenna was changed twice. The last change was around Jan last year (2018). I've noticed the fault happens when the temperature is very hot / sunny or very cold. I've not had any false alert since then until a couple of weeks ago on a very sunny day. I've not arranged...

Re: Snow foam/lance

I have a Karcher K2 and am using Autobrite Direct Magnifoam (snow foam). I also got the Autobrite snow lance, which bought as a package from Amazon. Clean & Shine (https://www.cleanandshiny.co.uk/) is a good source of car cleaning products. They just didn't have a lance with Karcher connector in sto...

Re: Winter frost problems

I've had the same problem this morning and one other day this year. I've used Gummi Pfledge around the seals including those at the bottom of the window but the window still didn't drop this morning. I used a credit card to get in between the window and the brushed which did the trick. The passenger...

Re: Parcel Shelf Problems - Coupe

I had the same issue and got the dealer to fixed a few times until the pin snapped off (driver side) and they had to replace with a new pin. The new pin they fixed was more appropriately sized (longer pin) and the parcel shelf has not dropped ever since. I think that was about 9 months ago.

Re: Windscreen washer top up - what to use?

No idea, tbh. 😋

I find boiled water tastes "softer" and usually see the scale sinks to the bottom. Hence it gives me the impression the water is soften. Condensing the steam would be one solution I guess but would probably easier to buy distilled. 😋

Re: Windscreen washer top up - what to use?

Thanks all! :D It seems tap water is the way to go and may be ready mixed solution once the original stuff has been diluted enough / completely. I am in the North East and the water is not soft but not super hard either. I might use boiled and cooled water hoping it would soften the water a bit. Tha...

Windscreen washer top up - what to use?

Hi, After 2 years of having the car and the occasional squirts of the windscreen washer fluid to clean bugs and the likes, the warning message of low windscreen washer level has finally shown up. So the question is what should I use to top up? Tap water, boiled and cooled tap water (reduced scale?),...

Re: Engine Flush / Oil Conditioning? (2nd Service)

Hi all,

Thank you very much for your replies!

I think the general consensus is a "waste of money" especially the car has only done 13,000 miles and 2 years old. Has anyone had the same offer when booking in for service or any other time by the main dealer?

Thank you very much again!
