    But I remember Michele Mouton putting a works class B quattro through its paces in the Welsh forests

     

    Moral of the story is anyone can drive whatever they want as long as they’re happy with it

    Same price just a replacement as it contains more ethanol and the older vehicles can’t run it, they will have to use the super unleaded which is around 5 p per litre dearer than standard

    Can’t get a tyre until tomorrow so hopefully it won’t come out on its own

    Looks like a self tapper so should be well threaded in

    All these arbitrary applications of the rules are really frustrating. My wife’s car is due for renewal and would like the Hyundai Tucson. Unfortunately one of her criteria is that she wants a 360 camera which is only available on the Ultimate edition and is not available as an option. I cant understand why it can’t be available, as the power is the same as variations that are already on the scheme. And the cost is well below a lot of cars that are on the scheme.

    The ultimate is on the scheme

    The above will explain why we have a £37,000 car on the scheme because of the entry level costs of the Ateca

    Seat ateca

    Not got a flat opening but it’s possible to have an adjustable floor or it was not too sure of the facelifted Ateca

    We manage to get a wheelchair laying flat, fortunately I can manage to lift it above the boot lip

    • Seat Ateca FR BLACK EDITION 2.0TSI DSG 4DRIVE

    NEVADA WHITE

    Handover September 2020

    First Seat for us

    Good level of equipment

    Full leather heated fronts

    Digital cockpit,full Led lights

    Electric drivers seat

    Love the dsg box first auto since my roverSD1 v8

    Sports mode brings a smile to my face

    Mpg averages 38 mixed and 42 on a motorway trip to Orpington 225 miles each way

    Bridgestone tyres fitted and rears replaced at 8500 fronts at 14000

    Not the best tyres in my opinion

    Ride quality on 19’s surprisingly good once the pressure is set correctly, supplied with 45 psi all around

    As its a  4drive the suspension is better than the 2 wheel drive ateca which uses the torsion beam setup

    Road holding and grip very good and good fun to drive in our North Wales countryside

    No problems to report everything working as it should

    Boot takes a std wheelchair laying flat

    All in all happy with the car

    Totally agree with the comments regarding the Ateca mpg

    Recent trip to Kent (Orpington) from North Wales and return saw an average of 43mpg

    Regularly see 35 + local
