  1. VW do NOT mention no towing with a space saver, Nissan and Mazda did...
  2. I would have thought the Q5 came fitted with self sealing tyres same as my Tiguan? I manage with the factory space saver due to having self sealing tyres, otherwise i would fit a full sized wheel in the well, i use the boot on the higher setting anyway so wouldn't lose anymore boot space. Not my tyre but the same self sealing. https://www.hankooktire-mediacenter.com/index.php?id=151&L=0&flt=1&tx_news_pi1[news]=181&tx_news_pi1[controller]=News&tx_news_pi1[action]=detail&cHash=b3428ccb3c9f0284b98e27bb1d4e5bab
  3. Exactly what i was thinking but didn't want to say, I have no idea what i pay per gallon only the Litre price.

    Tyre test

    I always assumed a winter tyre would outperform a summer tyre in low temperatures, but now i know different. It appears a good balance for a winter tyre in the UK in the area i live in would be the cross climate... What about when the summer tyre used is wider than the winter tyre used, narrow wheels are preferred in snow by rally drivers.

    Tyre test

    Interesting result to find the summer tyre was the best at dry braking.
  6. I never heard a fan running on my xtrail DPF diesel in the 4.5 years i owned it, and got no noticeable oil rise, nor on two DPF Mazdas over 6 years, only ever heard the fan running with the Tiguan, and according to Frank Bullet the regen may have completed... Its a shame manufacturers don't disclose how they regens work or give a clear indication one is in progress (although i have read that some Fiats do or did) as some or obviously better systems than others.
  7. Its not just short journeys with a Mazda a regen is timed on miles, so even those who do only motorway miles can interrupt a regen, we did have two cx-5 owners on this site who did megga miles a year but still ended up on the back of a breakdown trunk, that was in 2013. Both had oil dilution. I've interrupted regens on at least 5 occasions this year with my Tiguan and can see no oil rise on the dip stick...
  8. Mazda diesels also have oil dilution problems, I've had two which had oil rise which meant oil changes every 7K miles were needed, not the 12.5K promised. Other makes also have had the issue, Volvo i believe is one.
  9. I read some time back that the average mileage was around 7K miles, which is around what we do in our one car family. I'm saving the planet.
  10. Bailey do say their caravans are tested at 81 mph.
  11. Lots of Tiguan 230ps owners with incorrect V5 details.....

  13. No they don't.
