  1. Fantastic news Rob - much apprciated. Can you tell me where you started to remove the rear panels? Very much looking forward to your progress report so I can do the same.##
  2. You are quite correct, it is peppy. I considered the diesel but it would take a few years to recoup the costs. I like the space inside and the basic layout. The gears are also very good - nice and smooth and very positive. I wish they'd put a small block near to the left of clutch as a footrest. The under-seat tray is a good idea. Cheeky buggers wanting to charge for a smoking kit - about £15. Didn't a lighter and ashtray once come as standard? Cheap alternative, empty tin of cola and a market stall lighter - 60 pence. lol. I also bought the mud flaps - £44.00. I'm going to fir them myself, the dealer wanted £110.00 all in for fitting. Like how much? style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />
  3. Hi again. Yes I was amazed. I half expected it to reset the trip meter but not both. To give you an idea. It has a knob on the left for adjusting the brightness of the display and the right knob for adjusting the time and the trip. A push in adjusts the trip. On the orange dial it shows the trip at the top and the mileage at the bottom. I've since tried to do what I did earlier but it seems to be working fine and won't zero the mile-ometer. I just don't trust electronic stuff. Heck, if the second hand dealers with shady shades latched on to it they'd be sniggering all the way to the bank. I'll see how it goes and if it happens again I'll take it to the dealer. Thanks for your help - much appreciated. style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />
  4. 1298. Big enough for pootling about. When I want a bit of speed I go out on my motorbike - Honda 919, Naked Fireblade. style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />
  5. Car. Yep, the dealer gave me just one key with a chip press lock/unlock and one plain key with a serial number. Both keys work but only the chipped key will undo the central locking - as expected. Maybe I'm thinking it would be like my ex Toyota which had two sets of chipped keys and a master. And yes I had done 56 miles from the dealer and when I twiddled (technical term) the hour counter it reset the trip and mileometer to zero. The ignition was switch on at the time but no engine running. Buggered if I know how I did it.
  6. Many thanks Rob. As for the clock. Yes, I turned it left and right - hours/minutes. If held while twisted it goes through the hours/minutes quickly. Or it can be done one click at a time. What I'm perplexed about is the mileometer - not trip - resetting to zero! By the by. How many keys come with the car? I was given one with a chip and one without. Obviously cutting down on costs. Thanks again.
  7. Hi to you all. I have just bought a new Urban Fox in silver.The first test it has passed is the rain. The heavens opened up like never before. It held the road very well and the wipers were excellent. This is my first VW. My last car was a Toyota which I had for 8 trouble free years. What I like about the Fox is the seating position. Reminds me of driving a Transit! Some may complain about the austere interior but I would rather have an easy clean surface than being coddled in cotton and velour. Hope to contribute to the forum. Take Care
  8. Hi. I purchased a new Urban Fox today - nice car. On trying out the stereo I pressed the button to adjust the forward and rear speakers. Nothing happened in the rear. When I checked the speaker compartment it was empty! Sans speakers. The VW website says standard equipment includes 4 speakers. By this do they mean the two tiny speakers near the windscreen and the two standard speakers in the front doors rather than six? Aside from the above. When I was adjusting the time clock the mileage and trip zeroed themselves!!! Don't know how it happened but it did. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank You
