Thanks for the replies guys, kudos.

Such a great day to take pictures but the car is filthy and the car wash is closed so I'll give it a go tomorrow!

I did not know this as I've never had ASS in any of my cars. So, if one starts a journey in stop-start traffic in freezing conditions, I'll be ASSless for a bit of time. Nice to know.

I always find it's best to be warm if you want some ASS. Cold ASS is fraught with all sorts of dangers and can severely damage your big end or your cam shaft. I've even heard of bent rods being caused by too much cold ASS.

You've NEVER had ASS in any of your cars?! You poor fella....Ok...that could sound really bad!

On a serious note though, I was on the verge of taking the car back because it wasn't working, until I realised the reason why!

There speaks a man of great experience. I would hate my big end or my shaft to get damaged. I sincerely hope activation of my ASS does not cause any other undue problems. Should I de-activate it for London driving? Your advice would be much appreciated. I suppose de-activation is the best form of protection.

Did Cambridge today 45 miles each way mostly 75/80MPH + some 4K boot downs , small traffic = 44.5MPG with two stops.
It did 46MPG going, both settings from "COLD" , so NO button pressing/re-setting when warmed up.

Same route, just a bit further to Kings X. It's hell at times. Even bigger hell parking on Harlot Street

!!! What are "Corona lights".
Not driven in the dark yet.
Do you mean "Day time running light rings"?.

A surprise was; I ordered Surround view and got rear view and surround veiw AND side view cameras which were not ordered + Advanced Parking which costs 525 and I did not order it
Car drives great and I am in Sport all the time unless in town or traffic, I have the Chassis only configuration to keep the gear changes sane.
HK sound is awesome.
Where did you get the footwell mats from
