Of course there is. Tow with a big diesel and you'll get that up to 30.

I just about get 30mpg solo on a run  ;)

That's about the same as mine,about 10 less when towing twin axle van

I'm pretty sure all Touaregs are conventional tip tonic autos with torque co converters,latest being 8 speed

The NCDC units were crap anyway, in my view.

CD would constantly be spat out in morning, due to condensation the the disc. The maps were very old, to the verge of being pointless. They donít take full postcode, often struggled with industrial estates or where no traditional road/number.

Waze on the other hand, start app, says are you going home? Tap go and boom, multiple options based on live traffic data and dynamic routing updating as you go, based on traffic. Not once has it given me issues in position/routing.
Just downloaded that. I'll give it a go tomorrow  :y

It's very good :y

J-B weld FTW. :y

Have the mounting come off the block or the head?
the engine . its snapped & half of the mounting is still attached to the bolt. imagine a bolt with half a nut on the bolts threads. we toyed with the idea of trying to find a belt & do away with the tensioner &  putting just on three pulleys.

You could do that with a stretch belt like a Ford focus and suchlike uses :y

pretty much the only small car actually designed to work with an auto box in recent years is the Nissan Micra  all the rest are as you say automated manuals  :y

I thought the Micra (and all the other Nissan automatics) were actually CVT gearboxes.. that said, her instructor's car was a CVT too (Toyota Yaris hybrid) so she was used to driving those; I'm just leery of them in case the rubber bands brake ;D

I've never seen a Micra CVT break,they probably do like most other things but its not common

Looks like it was caused by the aux. battery being low, seems fine now :y

But why was it low?

Aux. battery wasn't low, I misdiagnosed it.

Seems like the parking brake mechanism needs a good service.

Been parking on the flat and not using the parking brake - everything works fine.

But doesn't 'hold' use the normal foot brake system & not the hand/parking brake

yes :y

In my experience, a Mini is best avoided at all costs, out of a warranty and itíll hurt. I never buy one, even if itís seemingly cheap and would be Ďeasyí to make money on.

BCA - great vast offering of stock, but as Tigger says, buyers premiums are a lot! You need to have a BCA Gold card with you for it to be worth going. Look at some large independent auctions too!

I would whole heartedly agree with Josh on this :-X
