haven't heard of too many people that have had Selespeed problems where they can't change gears.
I am sure being an audiophile, you know what you are doing, but I find the best setting for my BOSE system is to have both BASS and TREBLE set to "+5". You get a nice crisp sound and damn nice "tight" BASS.
I would be interested to hear you expand on your "The interior is extremely stylish and well laid out, but really badly finished. I haven't hear of many people who have complained about the design or finish of the interior (Rattles and creaks aside).
Best of Luck
The dealer kindly removed the badges for me, just as well as I'd probably have scratched it..... Looks much better by the way Stef
I was prepared for the error messages I guess after reading others comments on here, just hoped I'd get the 'perfect car. It went back this morning and missed a gear going from 2nd into 1st as I stopped at a roundabout. As I tried to accelerate gently away it crunched and revved its head off as it slipped into a 'false' neutral.
I’ll play with the Bose as you suggest, but I see what you mean. The courtesy car is a 1.6 and the stereo is terrible by comparison.
No rattles or creaks, but a lot of frayed material where the roof lining meets the windscreen, trim around the door has come away, One of the rear seat belts was trapped under the rear seat which not only stooped the belt being used but also stops the seat being folded forward, which I only wanted to do to free the seat belt! Something metal (a spring?) sticks up through the seat and will with time poke through I’m sure. And finally the alarm wouldn’t switch off using the remote this morning. The led went out but I didn’t hear the ‘beep’ nor the doors unlock. When I opened the door with the key the alarm went off. Luckily I was at home and got the spare key, it went off fine with that.
The dealer has booked the courtesy car out to me until the 5/6, which is a bit of a pain, but at least I’ve got some wheels. Apparently some old bird has got an anniversary this weekend and it’s screwing everyone’s lives up……. Up the revolution – bring on the Republic!!
