  1. The only advice i can give is to open the window and belch very loudly - that always gets attention. People always look when i do it......
  2. Ive had a few rides - as a passenger - in Hyundai's and Kia's and find the head restraints massively uncomfortable, they just don't fit me for some reason. Shame, as i quite like the cars.
  3. I will do when i check it next, probably in a few weeks time.
  4. Not sure about that podcast, but i listen to podcasts on Spotify/BBC Sounds and use the satnav at the same time, it works well.
  5. Had issues with Amazon music on Android Auto - but can confirm that Youtube music works seemslessly with it.
  6. As cyker says, the Mk4 is even harder to accurately read the oil level. Tbh, i've given up. This is now the first car i've ever owned where i don't check it every week. It's pointless as it's very hard to read and always seems to give a different level. I just drive now and hope the red light doesn't come on.
  7. 42,000 miles on original tyres in old VW UP when i sold it, and there was still plenty left. Gentle of the mark, straightlining roundabouts as much as possible, don't acceleate hard on bends. Be interesting to find out how the Yaris fares with it's tyres, it's heavier.
  8. The VW Up! is a great little car. Had one for a few years, and Skoda Citigo before that, never let me down and surprisingly decent on the motorwaty.
  9. Another reason why women in the workplace are great - men see them smile and forget what they went in to whinge about! 🙂
  10. Yeah, i get that with mine, it seems to be louder on first start up or if the traction battery is a bit low. when it does it the battery bars seem to go up quicker.
  11. It's worse than you think. Councils are being "encouraged" by central government to bring in Ulez - it's a conditon of getting central government funding for big projects. One way of paying for it i guess....
  12. Bring it here, i'll look after it for you, as long as i can drive it every day! 🙂
  13. A good choice! Welcome to the forum, hope you don't have to wait too long.
  14. Google Maps for me, but none of them perfect. I've used Waze as well but that failed to me that a road was submerged by a flood, which made me very late for an appointment. Having said that though, Google Maps failed to me that the main road into town was shut for gas main works, it had been shut for 3 weeks by that point. None of them are perfect
  15. Well, i managed to spill washer fluid in parts of the engine bay i can't get to. I tried to mop it up with kitchen roll, but dropped the kitchen roll onto the floor of the engine bay. Couldn't get my arm in to fish it out. I got my much more practical father to have a look. He used a meter stick with a sellotape sticky pad on it to get it out. Neither of us could reach to mop up the washer fluid though - there's no room in the engine bay to your arms in,.
