Hoping to join the custom ownership world

Postby sparkie1984 » Thu Apr 08, 2021 8:20 am

Morning all

Hoping to pick up a 2018 limited (facelift) in the next couple of weeks.

I’ve been reading through here so will be getting it booked in for Hykee lock and deadlocks ASAP.

Quick question though.. what on earth is the small round black blob on the roof? Is it a DAB aerial?

Plenty of room in the back for a sweeping brush and a vacuum cleaner.

Oh, wait .....

You're a sparkie :lol:

Ended up buying the van!

Loving it so far. Seems to be a standard limited model albeit with navigation built in. Which I’ll never use as I use CarPlay.

Managed to update sync software from 2.2 to 3 so that’s a plus too.

One thing I’ve noticed.... it doesn’t have start stop, was that an extra? This is a 2018 model but it is a facelift. There’s no button for turning it on or off etc so I assume it doesn’t have it?

Also is there any easy way (without removing seat) to see if it has one battery or two?

Should be an ECO mode button there (see photo) if there isn't then no start stop (I thought mine had it thanks to the dealership saying it did bit it doesn't Image

Ah that confirms it then, no start stop. Thanks mate!

Not the end of the world I guess, just thought by 2018 they’d come with it
