Re: Insurance

When a renewed in June my existing insurer, Aviva hiked the premium by around a third. My broker checked alternatives and I ended renewing with LV for around half the cost of the Aviva quote.

Re: 2021 Velar

If the pictures are accurate, the rotary gear selector has gone in favor of a more conventional shifter. I think I prefer the rotary selector which hides away rather than having a big lump sticking up all the time. I notice they’ve still not come up with a cup holder cover like the one available on...

Re: InControl Touch Pro 20B released

Has anyone noticed that the passenger side dial doesn’t default to fan speed when Sync is selected? If you want to change the fan speed you have to press the fan button first and then the passenger dial. The. It turns back to the temp after a few seconds. As a case of adding additional touches whic...

Re: Reset Distance To Empty?

There’s another thread on the forum which suggests the calculation is dynamic based on recent usage and it therefore recalculates over time.

I’ve not tested this but it might be worth monitoring it.

Re: Heated Seats

The seat back heats up fine (elements) but the seat base is heated by a fan and takes a while to heat up and never gets that hot. Had my dealer take the seats apart (twice) and test on other Velars they had in stock, the outcome was a poor design by JLR. After a while the fact the seat back is elem...

Re: Heated Seats

I have the heated/cooled seats and they don’t get very warm at all even on the maximum setting. It’s one of the few disappointing things about this otherwise excellent car. Given that there are clearly different experiences mentioned here from various users, I wonder different components are being u...

Re: InControl Touch Pro 20B released

When I got my car in November last year it came with v19B installed. I didn’t get any OTA updates of successive versions of 19 or v20A but wasn’t too bothered because everything worked OK. Then a week or so ago I got a notification to update to v20B out of the blue so I installed it. I haven’t notic...

Re: Supertweaks.com

Did you pay by credit card? If so, contact your card provider and ask for a full refund. I would always pay for something like that by credit card as you get protection in the UK under the Consumer Credit Act. The card provider is equally liable with the merchant for the supply and quality of goods ...
