Re: Spare Wheel size

My spare is a “space saver” 16” size ordered as optional extra from new. I have 18” tyres standard on the SEL at time of ordering.
As said previously, ‘better than a can of gunk’

Re: Dashboard display

Obviously the Kw refers to the power rating of the engine similar to BHP or Torque. Could it be the variable power that the engine is delivering as you drive. Does it increase as you press the throttle the 0 reading could be on idle. Not sure but just a thought???

I had my dashcam fitted by Halfords (followed a good experience of a fitting on my previous car).

Re: Boot sill protectors

I agree with ‘old man’ but having said that, whilst I have not had a problem with the Carbon style tape that has remained firm & well stuck to the bodywork, I really did like the appearance of the stainless steel. It gives a professional appearance whereas the tape was a bit of a make it fit job.
