Hi there Badgio, and welcome.

I have yet to take it on a motorway, so an unable to get out of 4th! The steering wheel controls work perfectly well when the Speed Limiter is selected instead of the Cruise Control. my car's an automatic - can't answer that one - sorry.

2. I noticed 2 red lights in the front courtesy light cluster. Any idea what these are for? they provide 'soft' lighting whilst driving at night and partially illuminate the cabin.

3. Is there a factory fitted alarm system as standard? yes

4. Has anyone had a warning message that the ‘Automatic parking brake is faulty’? This is on continuously, but to my knowledge all is working fine. i.e. the parking brake comes on when the engine is turned off. no, does the handbrake release by itself when moving off?

Any answers would be gratefully appreciated.
Hope I've been able to help a bit.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
