Post: RE: Alarm behaviour

I've also had my alarm go off 5 or 6 times (usually in the middle of the night), always just the alarm and no indicators. But on checking the alarm status it says "no activations" (or words to that e...

Post: RE: Evoque for Two

Looks like someone slammed the brakes on hard, and in a second it will 'lean back' to become a nice, normal Evoque again.

Post: RE: Reverse camera

My biggest criticism is the location of the camera - it's too low so quickly gets covered in road spray. On my RRS the camera was next to the high-level brake light which meant it suffered much less ...

Spotted this a bit earlier today in a car park in my town, not noticed it before so not sure if it's one of the locals or someone visiting... Maybe it's the queen doing her Christmas shopping?
