    Hi All,

    Upgrading from an Ibiza FR 115ps.
    Wasn't too sure about the 1.5 Evo engine in the Arona having read some bad reviews talking about 'kangerooing' but had no such issues on my test drives.
    Hopefully getting it Weds or Thurs but could all change due to Coronavirus [​IMG]

    As an aside, slightly disappointed the FR Sport only comes with rear parking sensors. Does anyone know if front parking sensors can be retro-fitted so they work through the touch screen display?

    My wife's Arona is now in the UK so C19 willing we will collect it this week. Her current Polo has front sensors and they are useful but as you say the FR doesn't have them. Our dealership were not keen to retrofit them hinting a a few problems of integration...never really got to the bottom of it

    Thanks for your response, doesn't sound too promising for a retrofit!

    Fingers crossed you're able to collect this week.

    Been asked if she wants to cancel but we have decided to wait until things improve....picking up a new car nor delivering it is not essential. Let's all do our bit to help get through this.

    Completely agree.
    It'll be something to look forward to when this is all over...
