Re: 1st service

I'm in a similar position, thinking of just getting the service pack and be done with it.

Re: dreadful exhaust flap rattle .

Mine has started to rattle more frequently now I'm 6 months in. Does anyone have any experience reporting this issue to Halliwell Jones? I haven't got the patience to deal with them if they're not even going to acknowledge the issue, so would rather find a dealer that is aware/sympathetic to the iss...

Actually I spoke to soon, still seems to play tracks with no sound after a while.

Re: idrive 5.0 and spotify?

Just had a quick play in the car and it does appear to be working a little better than previously. Not as good as the Deezer integration though (IMO).

Re: A rival for Carly? Bimmercode

Anyone know if it's possible to remove the 'recommended' gear indicator when in manual mode (Auto box)? I thought I saw a setting for it in the app, but can't find it now.

Re: iDrive 5.0 > iDrive 6.0 (lite)

Personally I think ID6 looks much nicer, ID5 looks quite dated in my opinion.

Re: Anyone here subscribed to Online Entertainment?

I'm using Deezer and I've actually been rather impressed with it. I was a Google Play Music subscriber before, but have canned that in favour of Deezer. The only thing that bugs me is that the sound quality/bitrate is a bit low, so not as good quality as streaming Deezer/Spotify etc over bluetooth.

Re: A rival for Carly? Bimmercode

Quick one all; can you code the D (ie auto drive) indicator on the bit below the rev counter to say D1, D2, D3 etc? It'd be nice to know what gear you're in without having to use the paddles. Forgive me if there's an easy way to do it. I've only had the car two weeks!!! [emoji848][emoji16][emoji50]...

The paint on those bits is so soft, scratch when you look at them wrong.
They're the same on loads of cars, it's not paint finish I don't think - just glossy plastic.

The position of the brake calipers tell you it's FWD?!

Chris

Generally I think the caliper is at the front of the car for FWD cars, something to do with driveshaft clearance or something. I believe there are exceptions to this 'rule' however.

Re: M135/140 Family Car...?

Coming from a 2015 Focus, the boot is comparable but the rear leg room seems much less. Having said that for kids it would be fine.

Re: Change Order

This is my first auto and would order it again. My current mindset would be that I'd only get a manual on something that was a weekend car/toy etc. It does take a bit of getting used to, in a manual I always know what gear I'm in, whereas in manual mode on the ZF8 I forget. I'm not sure if that's be...
