Re: New rear bumper protector 👍

Hi Dave, Unfortunately we inherited the deep scratch/gouge on the flat top of the bumper when we bought the car and the cover hides this perfectly. I did think that the painted plastic cover could scratch easily but I think that we should be ok as we are both very careful when putting/taking things ...

New rear bumper protector 👍

Had a small chip/scratch on the bumper that was annoying me, tried to fill it in, flatten and blend it but wasn't happy, didn't really want to have the bumper re-sprayed so I hunted down a protector. I'm not overly keen on the Chrome/Stainless steel ones available, then I came across a seller on Fle...

Oops, my apologies. Didn't realise that was my photo. This photo was taken when the ignition was switched to the accessories position. It does disappear.

Re: Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB) help to clarify please.

I have a 2018 tekna and have never seen the little white icon under the time, I know it has worked quite suddenly before but wonder if it might be worth getting mine looked at by the dealer as it's not there. Got the car back yesterday, they fitted the free mud flaps but unfortunately they had orde...

No that would be silly ๐Ÿ˜
I was considering placing a few empty cardboard packing boxes at the turning circle and try the obvious but decided against it as the neighbours would think I'd finally flipped!

Re: Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB) help to clarify please.

Have some ol...

Re: Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB) help to clarify please.

Recieved a reply from Nissan GB this morning regarding my initial enquiry regarding whether my IEB was working/not working, especially the fact that I do not have the same icon showing that others do. My car is scheduled to go into the Dealership on Thursday so that the Technician can check it over....
