Hi all,

That goes hand in hand with the "always use your horn rather than your brakes" one Laughing

Here's a tip I got from a copper. Thumbs Up
Setting your entry to 'Lazy entry' at the settings menu.
Using the primary key, set seat position 1 to your driving position. Position 3 to fully back, fully lowered base for easy access and egress.
Now the clever bit, position 2 set to fully up and forward.
On exit press 3 after you've switched off the ignition to allow easy exit. It should also stay like that on your return.
Using the spare key, set the seats to default to position 2. Now if someone nicks your spare key, they'll take at least two minutes just to get in and away. (Also messes the missus Mr. Green if she tries to use the Disco)

It's not perfect or anything but may be useful.
Rolling with laughter
 Money isn't everything but it keeps the kids in touch.
