Re: 1.2 DIG-T - Oil loss

Personally, I would not touch the 1.2 petrol with a barge pole. It's far to small an engine & if coupled with the terrible terrible auto gearbox your in for a world of hurt. The diesel of this date has auto regen & no issues with clogged DPF filters etc. So either for the 1.5 or 1.6 tdi or if you ca...

Re: What uo you most dislike about your Qashqai??

This one is an easy fix, change the profile of your next tyres as I did to Michelin Latitude Sport 3 225/55 R19 V (99), I guess the originals are 45 profile. The ride is improved and the Speed odometer becomes more accurate. So when you're doing 60mph, the car is near 59mph on the sat nav. Just thou...

Re: sonar and climate control

You need to fix the Radar sensor as it is a safety device. It's there to stop you driving into another car if your distracted or fail to notice a collision situation.

Re: Nissan Connect LCN1 (J10) and LCN2 (J11) LATEST Map Europe

Having bought a 2015 Qashqai new 5 years ago, I was annoyed to discover the map was already two years out of date, and there was no new update immediately available. I've eventually had 2 updates in the 6 years of owning it, I'm now beginning to look for a new car and see Kia are giving completely ...

Re: LED External Bulbs - Retrofit and the Law

Don't worry about it, no one in their right mind is going to check if your number plate light has any regulated stamps. Just make sure they are not over bright and white. At 12v the worst that's going to happen is that the LED or capacitor if fitted will fail.
