Re: Hi All.... Eddie from the Isle of Wight

Hello and welcome Eddie, Your new car looks smart - good luck with keeping it clean, my Black roof is a nightmare. The wheels and sunroof are an added extra, and set it off a.treat By having the sunroof you don’t get the roof rails and make it look more streamline. It will be a bit like driving a ro...

Re: Navigation system

With time on my hands, I gave it another go but still had no luck. There is reference to it on page 20 of the handbook, which seems to imply it’s only on the Discovery Pro rather than our Discovery Media. I assume you know you can change the main screen when showing the arrow (compass), over to disp...

Re: Navigation system

I cannot get the actual map to display on both screens, but when in use the other screen becomes the ‘turn by turn’ route guidance. So it will tell you your next change both in decreasing distance and a diagram. I always have the map in the info screen on even if no destination is set, so I can be a...

Re: New Member

The ‘cage’ under the passenger seat is home for the vehicle hand book. I previously had the 1.0L engine in my T Cross and it was superb, As it had a the DSG gearbox I would sometimes pull the stick back briefly to engage sports mode for (what seemed) a more rapid take off. Like you I was surprised h...

Re: Waiting patiently for new Taigo

I’m sure you will be pleased with it. I was told that it was 4 - 6 weeks from build to delivery at the dealers. Not quite sure what you mean about the wheel arch protection as mine does extend over the rear doors. I also went from a T Cross and find the Taigo is far more than a T Cross with a slopin...

Hello and welcome Archie,
I hope you will be as pleased with your car as I am with mine.
The black roof really sets it off by blending in perfectly with the spoiler and Ariel, and whilst the black mirror housing was a compulsory extra it was definitely worth it.

Re: Volkswagen Taigo R-Line in depth Review:

Your right about the 1.5 engine. Back in 2019 I was looking to trade in my 2017 Q2 1.4. It had been replaced by the 1.5 which at the time had a bad reputation for ‘kangerooing’, so I avoided it and went for a 1.0L T Cross. As good as the 1.0L is, it did lack punch when overtaking. With good feedback...

Re: Volkswagen Taigo R-Line in depth Review:

Thanks, but I have had a second look and sadly there is no ratchet type height adjustment fitted, (the car in the showroom was the same). It does extend outwards, just no vertical adjustment. So really just a pull up lid.. A minor thing really, and easily overcome by a discreet roll of dense grey s...
