    All the cars I hired at Geneva had them on, probably mandatory.

    Sleeper mode, mine was the same, looking like a long black limo which it still does, until I fire up the engine.

    No idea why I had a rear silencer delete

    I only ever use the ACC on the motorway and have only had one instance of it being inoperative in heavy wet snow.

    Keep the updates on your life with a stunning car coming.

    I'm surprised how much I like the 18s - they are a handsome design. I was planning no plastidiping a rougher set but I'm glad I took the lazy route and paid a bit more for a more acceptable set (just have a few nicks and small paint flakes).

    Yes I have Venus 18s on mine with pirelli sotto zero for the winter. They do look good! Check in handbook for correct tyre size as I got it slightly wrong. If not sure I can find it again for you.
