'Photo flipping' is a current glitch when the photos are uploaded directly to the forum, as opposed to using a third party host e.g. Flickr, Tapatalk etc.

They can sometimes, but not always, look sideways or upside down when viewed on a Web browser

but are OK on TapaTalk

Our tech team has been working for some time now to resolve this.

Had mine cleaned today as looking to move it on, test drove a 65 plate Golf GTD earlier as well. Loved the car and wanted to buy but VW dealer wasn't interested in any movement on the price at all once I turned down all the extra warranty guff that added over £1k and that I don't want it on finance. Such a Shane but had to walk away.
Yes unfortunately being a "cash" buyer isn't seen as a big attraction today for the dealers in the UK, they would much rather make more money out of you with one of their "competitive" finance packages :problem:

Hi Rich, Only had mine a couple of weeks,so no long term test. So far I am very pleased. Like the raised drive height, ample power when needed and 4Matic very smooth. I am showing about 45mpg around town expecting to better that on longer drives.
Very comfortable comes with all the toys Premium Plus spec. Suits me not overly large like full size SUV but bigger than hatchback.Loads of space in boot especially with rear seats down.
Cheers.

Nice car the GLA, I've tested one myself a while back, but no good for me due to the high load lip for the boot - just not practical for the dogs. If it wasn't for that I would seriously have thought about buying one. Enjoy :thumbup:

High load lip?

That's one of the reasons I've stuck with my Yeti. Any other similar car/SUV has got bigger and taller with the load lip being higher, which isn't suitable.

Shame Skoda discontinued the Yeti, I think they offered something a little different to the norm. I should really look at changing my X3 as its nearly 8 years old now, but it does everything I need it to do and more, so I just think 'whats the point?'.

Re high boot lip, I have a miniature schnauzer and with all the cars I have had I always lift my dog up and down to the ground,to prevent the wear and tear on their legs etc. Can see it being a problem with lifting a large heavy dog though. :lol:

A none too happy Davie.
