    Sorry i dont know. You can take a look under the dash at the clutch pedal assembly to see if you have the spring.

    Put my lower back cushion in.

    No achey back on my commute to work this morning.
    I saw a post on here a while ago and a few others agreed that their seats are rather uncomfortable and said they had the same problems with the lower back and couldn't find a comfortable seating position. If i could remember which members they were i would tag them, but this seems to have fixed my problem so thought i'd share. :dance:

    Your carpet looks immaculate. 5 minutes after cleaning mine it looks like someone dragged a tree through it

    They weren’t like that before the photos - but a quick vacuum and run over with Wax&Away Interior cleaner, and it’s looking fresh :)

    Obviously as soon as someone sits in the front, all that work is ruined!

    Compared to my old Civic the carpets appear to be a debris magnet. Same with my partner's Fiesta, the carpet on that is really good for releasing bits.

    So what does that do? Means like Comfort you can have blue, sport you can white, and cupra have red? Similar to the old 280 with white and red?

    I want the screen menus to change colour to match the door colours like they do on the more recent cars...

    Does that happen on the new 69 plate cars? Just bought MrsMaypack a Desire Red 150bhp FR Black which has the Digital Dash. She will love it if the colours all match.

    Exactly, you still only get two colour changes, that were originally white and red. However you can now set them to whatever colour you would like.

    I am looking into driving profile datasets, as Audi’s have 4 modes and 4 different light colours. However this will take some time....

    As for the infotainment colours, after scanning mine (2018) and an fr (2019) there is no setting to enable colour changing menus. I heard a rumour to gain this feature you need to software update the unit. Which makes sense based on the above.

    reminds me of the "M1" Hatchback I saw the other day with a single exhaust pipe out the bottom, but shotgun steel pipes stuck into the rear bumper on each side. It parks in the same car park as me at work, and my brother has taken to parking his M140 next to it to prove a point. :whistle:
