What's the reason for it only becoming noticeable in 3rd gear? I only ask as I have another car with a different problem but that only shows up in 3rd gear (or 4th at triple figures as I discovered the other day lol).
OP I think this is just a massive coincidence... our Avant is on 105k and is...
Its a 5l tank for the washers by the way... I only comment as I filled ours from empty the other day and it took just under 5l to completely full - which seems logical as the tank wasn't completely empty.
The tank it self doesn't appear to be easily accessible and seems to be towards the back...
Im also tempted by this... My concern though is even with the standard jet type the pressure isn't very high and they struggle to give good coverage. Not sure if its a weak pump or if the system is slightly blocked?
Has anyone else experienced this?
I've got 15mm rear and had 10mm on the front. Word of warning though - you should use hub-centric spacers to ensure the wheels are correctly aligned. This is fine on 12mm and thicker but 10mm spacers aren't quite thick enough to keep their strength/integrity and this is what happens;
Assuming you're on et43 currently then 13mm rear and 8mm front is about the limit IMO
I have aftermarket rims at et45 and have 15mm rear and 10mm front... so, the above specs would deliver the same fitment as this (effective et30 rear and et35 front):
hope that helps?
Mines an exec... Believe DAB, AMI, cruise and phone prep were included in the spec - I didnt know it may have included the Alcantera seats but we have them so could have also been included under the 'executive' extras!
I can completely relate to your post... I toyed with the idea of springs but as we already have the S Line springs (-30mm) it works out to be a lot of money for negligible difference.
keep us posted as to what you find out :)
Not speaking from experience but my understanding is that the standard 'sport' springs as fitted to the S Line models and ADS suspension both sit 20m lower than SE suspension. Only the optional S Line springs give you -30mm...
I don't think all facelifts have the hole... Isn't it just a simple matter of getting a new valance fitted sans hole?
As for the comment about no light in glovebox. Yes it's ****** annoying but it's because you didn't add the interior light package which gives you illuminated glovebox, front...
Can't say its ever bothered me either. I keep a few business cards in mine and use the 12v socket for my tomtom/phone charger.
Like others have said - at least it's covered :)
What annoys me more is there is no cubby under the headlight switch like I've had in nearly every other car I've owned!
Sorry mate, I feel that I should give mpc first refusal as its his thread really... hope you dont mind.
I payed £15. Happy to do them for that inc postage if you want them?
They look as though they will fit your bolts providing they are the OEM 17mm heads. Its a full set of 20 so 16 normal...
