I do think the all season are very much a happy medium, especially on the California.Enjoyed that. I've never been hung up on tyre changes throughout the year but this has given me pause for thought.
So Summer and All season for the UK!?
I've just purchased and fitted a new set of delivery miles Devonports with new Goodyear Vector 4Season tyres that I bought from another forum member. I agree that they are a compromise but we rarely get really bad weather in the south of England. When we have had the odd rare heavy snow fall, our village gets cut off almost immediately. So if it happens again I won't be driving anywhere.I do think the all season are very much a happy medium, especially on the California.
Something more high performance I would look at having two sets...
I specified a 150bhp manual 4Motion with diff lock and hill descent control for my van when I ordered it in 2017. I had a look at a T6.1 to see what it costs. With the mandatory DSG and 199bhp engine it comes up at £10k more than I paid for mine with the same spec. It looks like I’ll be keeping this one for a long time. I love it and it does everything I want it to but it’s a real shame there’s no way of getting a manual 4Motion in the U.K. any more.Good morning,
I am following the post here with interest. In 2017 I got a pre registered Ocean with FWD. I am very happy with the van, it is a pleasure to drive.
Spring 2018 I got stock on an even but wet grass surface. It was not easy to get out, espeically I didn't like that cars were parked in front and back. Trying to get out only resulted in spinning front wheels and slipping vehicle.
I believe that to 99% 4motion is not needed, also I believe that the service and repair cost on a 4 motion is much higher than on FWD, beside all this, if I could afford it, I would getting 4motion. Just for that peace of mind.
Just a few days ago the VW dealer send me the Irish price list for the California T6.1. Unfortenatley it seems that the 4motion is only available with the biggest engine and DSG. Adding a wee bit of extras and extended warranty brings the price over 90K Euro - that is scary. I don't believe I can financially strech that much.
In Germany there is the option for 4motion with a Ocean, 150HP engine, manual gears. The only thing I wanted to add was a trailor hitch, differential lock and extended warranty.
Good evening,Which CrossClimate do you have, +, SUV, or Agilis?
