Re: Tow bar fitment/bumper removal

Impressive post - well done. Takes some effort and patience to post about a big job like that.

Re: 1.0 tsi ??

The 1 litre is a decent car to drive. You don't get the fun factor of the 1.4 but you rarely find it lacking. There's still a strong feeling that you're driving a quality vehicle. It's absolutely fine as a day to day car, plus an excellent touring car. If you want fun, then get the 1.4. I certainly ...

Re: LED headlights?

The cheap option is to replace your DRL's with LED's. See previous posts on here.

Re: No EFFICIENCY mode in 1.0 version

It's a good engine, not fast but fine for most conditions. Just as good in town as it is on long highway runs. After 10,000 km mine shows just over 18km/litre.

At first, I missed the 1.4 of my last Audi but soon adapted. I like it.

Re: Snow

I was out today - our side street was still thickly covered. Felt ok, lots of ABS kicking in. Raised ground clearance certainly helps with your confidence as I had to mount the kerb a couple of times to avoid badly parked vehicles.

Re: Clutch slipping

It's often easier to take the car into a good local independent who has no axe to grind. Always best to leave the car with them the night before and let the mechanic start it up in the morning. He/she will know right away if the clutch is slipping. Actually, it wouldn't surprise me after 20,000 mile...

Re: Potential new owner

I've not been interested in cars for quite a few years now but still changed them every couple of years or so, for no particular reason. The Q2 is the first car in years to get me interested again. Not sure why, it's just a nice package and fun! Not that expensive either (for the base models) but st...

Re: Clutch slipping

Could it be that the electronic parking brake is not disengaging (pads stuck due to cold conditions?). Try releasing the brake before setting off to see if it makes a difference.

Re: Battery type in Q2

Having used trickle chargers (mainly Ctek) on my bikes for years I've begun to realise that they aren't without problems - a few batteries killed.

If I were you, just leave the car until you get back and give it a single charge using the standard setting. It won't lose much over 4/6 weeks anyway.
