Re: SAT NAV UPDATE

Well, I did get to terms with my satnav. Is not the fastest, takes forever to recalculate if you miss an exit, and is not always up to date with traffic , but using it with a dose of common sense and it'll get you there.

Re: SAT NAV UPDATE

Don't believe that, A hardware change was necessary my dealer told me, so pre 2020 models are out of luck. However if you are right, it makes me quite happy indeed to be wrong :)

Re: Battery Issues

No issues (but also no alarm, which I think in the UK is mandatory ?). Same was true for my GT86 of which in the end the battery (the s...

Re: Supercharge Kits

Quite simple I guess, you WILL blow up the clutch/gearbox/driveshafts when adding power to this car. My previous car was a GT86, and even that one you needed to be careful not to push power with more than 20% or other bits (including conrods) would start failing. Simply not woth the effort, and a CH...

Re: Flat battery. Manual key does not work

If you can get in with the blade, holding the key against the start button should allow it to start (if the flat battery is in the key, not the car itself). Running a 2018 model myself, and even after sitting still for a week or 2, it starts just fine (no alarm system though...)
