    Parking car for 3 weeks. Any precautions?

    Thought I was going mad, be interested to hear about the revs, I think if it's in gear with the handbrake on it wont rev.

    I may be mistaken but I don't think it did rev in a certain cet of circumstances, (may have been door open or something) I also remember reading somewhere they wont rev past 4k when parked on some years.

    Both my Audi and the wife's golf will release the main parking brake if you apply the throttle. Poor design imo and iirc the 5 won't even rev if in gear with the main brake on?

    I can't remember the last time I used the handbrake on my last 4-5 auto's, probability and likelihood and all that... The wife puts her handbrake on her dsg Golf and it drives me nuts when I get in it.

    Just a Festive Thank You

    I doubt they record the footage but worth asking, also as I'm sure you know have a look for any neighbours cctv.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Never had an issue with GP batteries, I buy them all the time for work, don't be drawn into the marketing of the likes of Duracell. It's the spec that counts not the brand.

    Still though, it's a 30 second job. Funnily the Mrs mentioned the other day about a few complaints about batteries wearing out within the first 7m or so, they are only covered for 6m but they change foc. Having said that they also change and store quite a few customers summer and winter wheels foc.

    Side View Camera Failure

    If you are OK with a laptop and confident then the software is available and it can be done yourself. Again have a read of the forum, I changed both side view cameras and sorted out a damp issue with the surround view camera in the mirror.

    Side View Camera Failure

    I had side view cameras that went 'foggy' nothing would work other than replacing them, I did both and got new camera's from fleabay for c£60. Very easy job (search the forum) but one will need coding as the image is inverted.

    Best use for menu shortcuts?

    In the F11 I had 1-4 for the radio, 5 and 6 for zoom on the maps and 7 for the phone directory iirc.

    Probably the best colour to show off tints imo.

    Echo the colour comments but what an absolutely corker of a machine. Hope it serves you very well Matthew.

    Chinese Winter tyres?

    Can't be that much of a snob. Cracked tyres would be straight off mine. Get them binned ya tight git.

    Parking sidelight?

    Ignition off and wiper stalk held up for a couple of seconds iirc.

    Parking sidelight?

    I often use the parking lights. Pretty sure it would take a lot to drain the battery to any detrimental level

    Wasn't it banned in Canada or was that a urban myth?
