    Highest mileage leon mk2 and reliability issues?

    Thanks :thumbup: I did try - company car and all so no real issue, it went back at just over 89,000 (2years 11 months) pretty sure DPF and turbo were screwed by then... no idea where it is now, but not listed as insured currently - so may be dead.... :shrug: I went to an Audi A3 after...

    xenon problem........ grrrrr

    Full beam on xenon, is just a cover that pops up uncovering more of the bulb, there is no change to the bulb it self. In dipped mode, the xenon bulb is partially covered stopping some of the light, this pops up out the way when you go full beam. (although, there is actually a "normal"...

    Seat Leon - Very Weird Braking Problem

    100000% ABS. In the dry/Wet if its cutting in then you are breaking like hell for something, keep your foot fully pressed and as you said it'll stop .... however in the snow, at low speed, you'd probably better taking foot off and pressing it slightly more gently, keeping your foot pressed just...

    Winter tyres

    Well, fortunately I didn't swap back to summers, so went out last night for a try, no real issues, but roads were deserted so nothing to compare it to.. felt a little let down TBH. This morning, the missus went to work at 7:30am, she went of up the hill out of our estate, slipped a bit and off...

    Winter Tyres

    2 ???? :rofl: You have 4 tyres on your car, you fit 4 winter tyres or you fit none. [:@] The traction difference between winter and summer is massive. you will crash .. very quickly if you have mixed and matched.

    Finally picked up my new car !?!!!

    But not both at the same time! Where in the uk do you drive in kph? As long as you can change to kph if you go abroad then there is no reason to "have" to display it in the uk. As I said, in the Audi you can just display mph, surprised if in the seats you cannot especially as they are likly...

    Finally picked up my new car !?!!!

    Really??? Not seen the newer 2010 displays in the Leon, as I've got an Audi now however i can set the units to mph or kph and I'm guessing they are a very similar unit. And as i can set it to mph, would say its not a legal requirement either :)

    Tyres wearing out fast

    wheel spinning on snow wears them out - fact. Was quite surprised about this - i had brand new (1 week before the snow) and after seriously heavy abuse of them in the snow - they are 3/4 worn :cry: If only i'd known before hand.

    Mayo under filler cap and coolant looking slightly dirty :( TFSI Sport

    Whats the dip-stick look like? Oil colour wise i mean - is there oil on it or the choc milkshake - that will really prove it one way or another.

    Brake pad sensors?

    My FR 2007 had a sensor cable on the front left hand side only ... which is fine, except it was the right that kept spinning up thus the TCS braked the right hand wheel more eventually leaving me 0 pad left on the right disk - only found out when it was metal against metal and more than 33% left...

    is something broken on my fr???

    Car will have "coming home lights". Meaning after a certain delay they will turn off, hence no need for buzzer.
