Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I reckon there is a good chance the MY12 tow hook will fit if you fit the MY12 impact protection bar across to the MY16 also. However as I have not seen both and cannot be sure.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I know it is an old thread, however this incident highlights the need for proper recovery training. It is highly likely a recovery damper was not used or not correctly placed. Still very unfortunate.

Re: 8 speed transmission behavior

Ok I think I have worked this out at least with kick down. When in paddle shift mode the transmission will ONLY kick down if the engine rpm is at 2000 or under with the currently selected gear.

For me I would like the ability to hold the gear so that I can use the low-end torque of the turbo diesel instead of it kicking down.

Re: 8 speed transmission behavior

So it looks like the diesel transmission is programmed differently to the V6. It will not hold gear in paddle / manual mode in ECO, non ECO or sport mode which is a little bit disappointing!
