If I ask it to. On the left stalk, push an arrow left/right it will toggle the display. On the next screen, first item is a schematic showing tyre pressures. It may show other stuff too, but I'm not a slave to it.Can it tell you the pressure above that figure or below?

It resets automatically, either when I restart the engine after using free air on the forecourt, or with the engine running while my cheap Middle of Lidl pump blows it up.It's an 'intelligent' system then. Unfortunately, it still needs to be reset once the low-pressure warning has been triggered. It won't assume just because you've pumped the tyres up all is well. It requires you to confirm you've done it, probably to cover the manufacturer's arse.
This is one of the mysteries of the universe. I do the same when parking - find a space well away from any other cars, and when I come back, there is generally one parked either side of mine and still miles of open space to the next cars.....
*And that's another thing. How come I've got this huge magnet that attracts other cars to me? I can park in a wide open car park with loads of spaces and have an empty space either side yet, when I come out, there's always someone parked right next to me despite there still being loads of empty spaces.

I really have no explanation, but it does my nut in.
I agree that I should be fully aware of other cars (as I am of blind spots in my car) but came across this feature when I hired a Volvo a few years ago.I borrowed an Audi a few days ago. A light on the wing mirror flashes when someone overtakes. I had to look in the manual for a reason as it was new to me.As driver should I not be aware of cars around me without yet another flashing light to distract me?
I have posted before, but my son is a clever dick in the nuclear business. If we think that we want to live life as we do now, but rely on electricity, even with all the proposed wind and solar generation, the uk will need 12 new nuclear power stations.Makes little odds really. In a couple of years time, a day like today, no sun, no wind, no one will be going anywhere..
I concur, the more mong aids fitted, the more monglike people drive, it's not a great combination, it'll be fine when the fully autonomous systems come about but currently many drivers don't have a clue. It might be quite funny to stick a millennial in a 1970's RWD zero driving aids car and see how long they lasted.The autobraking (pre-sense I think they call it) is really worthy of the thread title - unsurprisingly it's common across VAG(e) vehicles and is also a common source of complaints, the biggest problem is direct sunlight, especially in early winter / spring when the sun is low and reflections from shop windows, buses, other cars etc. etc. The system doesn't log any faults because it doesn't see the input as an invalid trigger, so diagnostically, there's nothing to go at, all you can do is look for patterns in the behaviour (time of day, weather, location, direction of travel etc.) and look for correlations in behaviour and triggers. It's a bit like 'false' activations of DAS on the C130's - in some ways you'd rather have false positives but it's feckin' annoying when it happens.
Personally, i'm an advocate of replacing the drivers steering wheel airbag with an ice pick - it'd make everyone a better driver (or dead) in a short amount of time. There are far to many driver 'aids' that people think absolve them of any responsibility for how they drive and the consequences of not doing it with their full attention or to an acceptable standard.
