Re: ADB not turning on

Activate in the menu, then rotate the stick to auto (may be hold it?) You should get "auto" lamp on now. It will activate only in certain conditions: >40 kmph and outside towns. Flashing the high beam will turn it off for a time.

Although I have the Matrix lights and something might be different.

Re: Tailgate Issue - Potential Recall??

The dealer here can't fix unnerving low grating sound coming from tge rear and didn't even look on my problem with noisy stutter from the rear drivetrain at low speeds. Twice now I left the car there. I cannot even imagine explaining that but if they don't fix the other two problems the thirdntime, ...

Re: Pulling the trigger - installing Velar SVA/ F-Pace SVR front brakes on my D300. Some other tuning questions remain

Got'em, but intil I get some solutions for my low whine and occasional stutter in the drivetrain, I'm not doing anything. Left the car, they've changed some bearing, took it, same as before.

Re: Tailgate Issue - Potential Recall??

Happened to me few times, I've decided I'm pressing the button on the key while it's in my pocket, but now I can replicate it more often than not - and it is not the key. 2017 First Edition with gesture control, if I'm doing something in the boot and I lean on the bumper with my tight(s), the tailga...

Re: Paint Protection Film

Xpel have special Velar kit. Price sounds right. IMO too high to justify it where I live. I can get it repainted for less, not to mention the insurance covers fixes. But mine is matt, no microscratching to worry about.

Re: Wheel/Rim Sizing

21" on air, no issues, there is nothing harsh. 22", same car, gets mich harder, and you'd have to keep them at higher pressure to avoid damage. Also it gets jumpy even in comfort mode. IMO 21-inch is the sweet spot if you want looks and performance, plus there are sime tyres with wheel protector. I ...

Re: New to Velar - Long term RR Sufferer

It's a great car. The Velar drives great on mountain roads too, just do not stay with the 22" wheels if you paln to ever return to Eastern Europe :D

Re: Android Auto - Really?

Do the FE's not have Android Auto? Obviously depends on the market, but it is not clar from the said market pages, so it's confusing. Turns out if you don't have HDMI and SIM card, there won't be AA. Which was not clear from the announcement they are adding AA retroactively. Mine is 2017, got it fr...

Re: Android Auto - Really?

I won't mind if I only get it through USB. First edition no SIM/HDMI.or even if they tell me I have to pay couple of hundred to get hardware update module. After all, a new phone costs a few. But hard NO is not what I expect for 120k model 2017-2018 car...

Re: Range Rover Velar?

Hi Syodarga, Not sure what you mean by the “new” Velar? May be the SVA? It sure looks really different, to the point I like it... as a separate car. I mean I love it, It's just beautiful (especially in the matte Byron blue), just don't feel it's the same model by looking at it, it lost so much of i...
