It will continue to be live for up to 30mins after ignition turned off. I hardwired mine to avoid this.
Good to know. Same for USB sockets?

Re: 12v cigarette port

I would imagine the 12v socket knocks off when you switch off ignition. (I've not tested nor used this socket)

Does your dash cam set up have a little internal battery that runs the system for 20 minutes when you've stopped?

What model dash cam is it?

Re: Gear vibration

Morning. Think a couple of these have been sorted. Gearstick vibration with a linkage adjustment. Fan housing was found to have a foreign object inside (paper or plastic) could be wrong. Not seen a fix for headlamp alignment, though spearmint, I think, highlighted this issue. My dash rattles, still....

Re: Snagging

There's a fair list of issues in faults and technical now. Most are fairly common, perhaps they will be rectified before your delivery date. However, to avoid disappointment on collection I would preempt your dealer into ensuring that _______ is checked and ________ works or you'll not sign for the ...

Re: Vignale

They're not looking at panel gap or alignment at PDI.....

It's QC at the factory that needs to up their game.

Re: Hill start assist

They'll be a technical explanation as to why it's not selectable on mhev models. Perhaps to much load is placed on the starter generator belts or pulleys if the car is rolling back when you set off. Just guessing but perhaps it's always on for protection.

Re: Hill start assist

Hiya

There isn't a setting for this. It's permanently in operation. Really depends on how far you depress the brake pedal when stopped.

I always tend to use the handbrake then I can be on the gas and clutch ready to go.

These systems tend to be much better now with electronic park brakes.

Re: Fuel Efficiency

@hammy Great post. The puretech Citroen's have always been good on fuel. We had a little c1 as a rounaround just the 1.0 version. It was very good. I would only question how figures are calculated now. We've moved from nedc to wltp. I suspect that computer figures are more accurate now. Did you ever...

Hi Iain,

We tried it in a (very wide) gap and the kids made a Tik Tok video of the steering wheel going round of its own accord and everyone shrieking.

Classic.... Wanna post a link if it's public?😄

Re: Brake disc scoring

Sorry for the potentially stupid question. Have you broken in the car "properly"? I mean, soft breaks etc. on the first 2000 miles? If yes, this is weird. Not sure about "properly". I drive relatively hard from day 1, always have done, however I don't thrash from cold, I also brake progressively. O...
