Its made by Bosch (of course), here is their video:

Note the 30kmh speed!

Can't find it. I have Driver Assistance Settings/Proactive Occupant   - but nothing to do with pedestrians.

Have I got the murderous vehicle option?

If front assist is active, its all part of that. Not a specific option to be enabled.

Detailing / Re: What detailing have you done today?

Agreed, much easier moving it about, decent weight in it.....I did get a bit carried away when I saw the fancy handle graphics thinking it was touch control!  :whistle:

I think it’s just part of the acc, whereas passenger protection is a option

Getting nearer......new GTI is now at Grimsby  :)

Better start getting used to the much poorer fuel consumption. Now the warmer weather is here, my GTD has started once more getting some great MPG figures, and last night in my usual 16 miles commute home (busy motorway at approx 65 mph plus 5 miles of 50 mph "A" roads, then a tiny bit of town traffic), it got me 62.4 mpg (with an ambient temperature of 23°C). Can't see the GTI getting anywhere near that, but to be honest, I'd be happy if under the same conditions, the GTI got 40 ish (and delighted at 45 plus), Not sure if that is realistic in a GTI ?

If you drive that same route at a steady pace then you’d be getting 40+ minimum. I’ve managed 50 in my GTI before driving like a granny on a long run.

Me too, 50mpg on a sloooooow motorway 18 miler. 42 more like it though and 45 sometimes.

Cheeky click-bait!  :grin:

Absolute  :grin:, my channel is all free. Without any advertising   :wink:

Not many of that on youtube these days.. :grin:

Lol, yeah I meant about the views, not profit!

Anyway, the time seems reasonable with those tires, I had them in my last car (~230bhp) and they do grip really well, had managed a 5.7" 0-100km/h. Stock GTI is not too powerful anyway to cause much launch trouble  :tongue: :grin:
