Re: Adblue...

AdBlue should last around 10,000 miles for a car that runs in normal operating temperatures and driving journeys. The car will provide a warning on the dashboard with an estimate of the available miles before a top-up. But be aware this is only an estimate and can change very quickly despite actual ...

Re: Ambient Lighting Queries

Centre console and door ambient lighting - customisable version - is a factory fit option and cannot be done by dealers. I guess anything can be done, and I am sure there is a cheap Chinese version about, but the cost would be silly to do with OEM parts. If it makes you feel any better, we dont cust...

Re: My wipers are chattering! Issue not resolved since Feb!

I would wipe the wiper blades with a white vinegar solution/spray to remove any surface grime or oils. Likewise I would clean the windscreen with a strong detergent or car wash concentrate (or try one of the Fast Glass products from Autoglym. If there is no change, consider replacing the wiper blade...

Re: Wheel touch up paint

Satin finish is usually a professional refurb job - you would only get gloss paint replacements if at all.

Re: Curbed my wheels - repair cost?

Does it have to be a new wheel? I thought they could just be painted instead? (although I guess you'd have to paint all 4 wheels). Yes painting the wheel to a gloss/satin finish is possible but presumably, one gets a diamond finish wheel for the look and if you wish to retain this, there is only li...

Re: Curbed my wheels - repair cost?

You appear to have gloss black painted wheels so £70-£75/wheel for large scuffs (anything over 3 inches) is about right. This goes a bit mad for diamond cut wheels as they cant be refurbed in the same way (except very minor scuffs) and need to go on a lathe to shave off a layer of metal. Can be only...

Re: New software Pivi pro

This is an entirely new product line, with roots in the DEFENDER core values, but features new technologies and modern upgrades. So not entirely surprised it is more expensive than the original - will suit all the righ farmers in Lancs, Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds and the Chilterns just fine. I a...

Re: Ready to collect... but fog lights missing! (pics)

You have a stunning car - and I dont even like Black Velars.
We have fog lights and never used them once - so I wouldnt bother. The headlights are excellent!

Re: SOTA / 19b

Audio crackling
Camera lag
Air Suspension issues

This is why I am demurring from updating from 18C until there is a reliable update coming - my dealer says September
