Why is my info centre showing Sun 9th January even though it's in the correct year ???

I thought i would be clever and put the year back to 2015 but that foiled me too but making it Friday 9th January !!! lol

Me thinking it has something to do with 2016 being a leap year and the infocentre just set from 1st January and might fix itself on the 29th February ???

Or just another Alfa quirk :biglaugh:

Set the year to 2021 to get the days right for now, you can put it back to 2016 on 29th Feb!

I did the search and came here! :lol:

I think I'll just leave it as is until March.

Not too lazy to search, just too lazy to re-set the year. :yes:


I vaguely remembered this issue (from 2012) being something to do with a leap year but couldn't work out why it should arise before the extra day? :confused:

It's a simple programming error - the software rightly identifies leap years and includes 29th Feb but then erroneously applies the extra day to the whole year, not just the days after 28th Feb. D'oh!
