My factory fitted system is activated by selecting reverse or by pressing the "P" button to activate the front sensors if you haven't previously selected reverse.
I will have to check to see if my work like that as well, I presumed it was by pressing the P button only.

Re: Front parking sensor's

That is a a system used by a lot of manufacturers, although usually by factory installed systems not dealer fitted.
My factory installed system has a on off switch. It stays on permanently unless it is switched off. I was hoping it was going to be like yours reverse activated.

Sounds like an 'undocumented feature' to me :lol:
If it happened all the time it could be a useful anti theft system :lol: meanwhile the dealer is checking the key fob...me thinks they will put a new battery in it and say see if it happens again.

Re: 4th year \ 50K service

Interesting to see the list and cost of parts then, and their hourly labour charge ,they have a choice of oil 0/30 or 5/30 the 5/30 saving a bit on the cost but even so with the filter etc it seems remarkably cheap.

Re: Front number plate holder

It is a plan but it would mean drlling a 10mm dia hole and if the installation is unsuccessful you are stuck with it, and in thin soft materials the problem is stopping them turning whilst they are tightened up. I think you are referring to a jack nut which expands from behind whilst being tightened...
