    Park Assist, Auto parking

    I find it hit and miss in terms of the sensors identifying a suitable space for parallel parking. You can sometimes drive past a large enough space without the car seeing it. When it does identify the space, the parking manoeuvre is spot on and watching the steering wheel whizzing around is entertaining!

    Isn't the Golf R the most stolen performance car? I wouldn't sleep at night if I had one on the drive!

    Battery top-up

    When my CTEK failed I found customer services were indifferent (to be fair, I'd had it for some time). I replaced it with Genius 3500 unit which seems very similar but more robust and with longer leads. Also has a 5 year warranty. I think someone on the forum mentioned the innards of most chargers probably come from the same factory in China, so the differences could be just cosmetic.
  4. Good point, Andrew. I suppose the VW engineers were equally ruthlessly efficient with their measurements, but vague about the method of arriving at certain figures? Anyway, sorry, back to autoboxes!
  5. It would help if BMW had rounded it up to 310hp. Wouldn't have taken much for them to tweak it to a nice round number. Lack of attention to detail!
  6. Glad to hear you're well on the road to recovery Andrew!
  7. Oh, I see. I now only use mine for long runs and if I need the carrying capacity so its not covering many miles. I'm keeping it for now as its perfect for these tasks and it took me 12 months to track it down!
  8. I'm really curious... Can i ask why?
  9. Take care of yourselves and hope you have a speedy recovery.

    Thanks Mike, I'll experiment with that. The E46 is a good benchmark!

    I moved from an E61 525i to an F11 535i (2011). The mpg is significantly better (surprising), the interior is a world apart in terms of quality and reliability has been excellent. There are only two things I prefer in the E60: it was slightly smaller and so easier to drive around the narrow roads where I live and the steering was sharper with better feedback. In all other respects, the F11 is a big improvement.

    Works well in a Panda!
