Re: Car load weight calculations

If you have a tow bar, have you considered towing a trailer rather than load up the car.

Re: fixed or detachable swan neck towbars

^^ No, when the van was detached and I had to reverse, the sensors still went nuts because of the tow bar. I must say though, I did not have the dedicated electrics for the car, that was another £60 from memory.

Re: fixed or detachable swan neck towbars

I tow with a QQ 1.6 diesel and have a detachable tow bar. When it's connected to the car, the rear sensors go potty when I have to reverse on site. It tows my 1300kg van with ease.

Re: Nissan EV Driver Etiquette

I think it was Toyota who are going to manufacture only electric or hybrids. I've seen the ad but can't recall the year, 2025 rings a bell, but could and most probably am wrong :D

Yep I was wrong, 2022 and it's Honda. Note to self, listen with both ears.

Re: Qashqai J11 no DAB (retrofit)

Mercedes call it a star machine, depending on car manufacture they have different names. It not only diagnoses faults and can also reprogram to make things work to the various international settings.

Re: hand brake query

Interesting, I have a 2014 auto with CVT box and my handbrake applies automatically when I push the engine off button, with or without my seatbelt on. All the warning buzzers go off, but I can move the car without the seatbelt on :D
