Re: Gear box

I am now about to collect my third facelift (FL) A45 this weekend. Both my previous ones were 2016 models. The first one had the gearbox problem twice, and was sorted out under warranty both times. I only bought the second one last spring and the gearbox has been fine but it hasn't been cold enough ...

Re: FL Exhaust doesn't burble on overrun or downshift?

I have a FL with standard exhaust no button. There is just a "gunshot" on gear change up in sport/sport+ I also have RACE mode and in that mode you do get the lift-off pops and crackles etc but only in that mode.

Re: Interior bulbs how many should be on?

Re: Hello everybody

I have a set of winter tyres on 18" rims ready to put on but I think I'll wait until it actually snows. It concerns me that they wont be as good on normal wet/slippery winter roads as my summer tyres which are nearly new, and we only get a handful of snowy days in England, so I don't feel I want win...

Re: Reverse Gear Grinding....

Same happened with me, a delay while they waited for the parts from Germany, then when they got them another delay while they waited for some special tools from Germany that are needed! Just over 2 weeks total from memory.
