Re: Arona DSG reliability

I never owned a new car , like the Arona. DSG is new to me, but I like it from day 1. Yes, it's jerky when taking of at the traficlights in NORMAL mode, but that's nothing compared to the SPORT mode. When wet... it tries to spin the front wheels, yes I like that ( my wife not so....) In ECO mode it ...

Re: Rear brake discs corroded

To press the rear pistons back into the caliper, you have to turn the piston, and press it back at the same time. I used to repair VW (golf 4, leon 2008, VW Polo) and all the same , even the good old Citroen BX.... This set works like a dream. 1.jpg (€ 6,-) 2.jpg (€ 19,95) You can press the front pi...

Re: Rear brake discs corroded

Ask for a second opinion ! 2 years and corroded... that doesn't add up. Unless you drive like my mother in law, she drives a automatic but hardly uses the brakes. Just go upto 80 m/hour and slam the brakes a few times, feel the ABS working. Alternative : Replace it yourself ! Set of 2 brakedisks €13...

Re: Can you explain how drive profiles work on a Xcellence Lux

My FR does something else.
@1st start of the day always profile normal.
After choosing ECO or SPORT , and you stop (@ macDonalds or somewhere else) and you start up again after a short break, the profile is still the same but the gearbox is back in Normal mode.
