Re: New arona incoming

No-one else has issued the reminder :) so I will - It's s good idea to hide the number plate on photos - stops the naughty boys from having things too easy if they want to clone a similar vehicle :!:

Re: INTERIOR LIGHT

That looks like a very neat solution and at a sensible price. I think you must have been lucky to find a professional to do the job at that price. I could be very tempted if I could find similar.

Re: Spec choice - advice please

Since I've only ever driven and now own a 115 FR Sport that's the only engine option I can comment on. I Have found this little 3 pot engine to be a revelation. Plenty of torque at low revs thanks to the turbo, high gearing meaning you don't have to rev the guts out of it and motorway cruising (that...

Re: Car in transit?

Call SEAT Customer Service quoting the SEAT order reference, NOT any dealer reference. They will give you an accurate update as they have for me in the past and many others.

Re: New FR Sport 1.5 TSI on order

Well, I wish my dealer had placed a few speculative orders. I ordered on 25 March, eventually got a build date of W/c 3 June, was told that it had been built and was in Spain awaiting shipping on 12 June and since then a thunderous silence from the dealer. Call SEAT Customer Services. They will tel...

Re: Which of these cars would you choose?

Nissan Qashqai was the worst new car I ever bought. Faulty paintwork ill fitting panels poorly fitted window seals. Quality Control were obviously on holiday when the car was produced - it should never have left the factory. While some of the problems were rectified I got rid of the car within 18 mo...

Re: Manual gearbox issues

I have the same spec Arona. Initially my gearbox was decidedly "notchy", but now with 2K miles on the clock has settled down considerably and is now perfecly smooth changing both up and down the box. One thing I did find initially is that the clutch has to be depressed to its fullest extent to make ...

Re: Standard fit tyres

Ditto - Early March delivery. I was so pleased not to get Pirelli or Continental :) . I'm interested to know why you're pleased not to get Continental tyres? Do they not suit the Arona? MM I don't know what suits the Arona, it's just my limited exposure to Pirelli and Continentals fitted as OEM ite...
