Hi all,

At last collected my 508 yesterday, so far so good.

Except one question: Normally the steering wheel when slow speed is heavy or i can say tight and when speed increase, it will loosen up and become light.
However mine when on a straight rd and driven up to 50km/h (example), the initial turn on steering wheel is tight and i need to tug it lightly to like loosen it. After lossening, it becomes light and normal. and once it stop at red light etc, the same thing happen again.
Is this normal.

Please advice.

I experience it as well. When driving off from idle, the power steering is like without powered assist (seems like the power steering pump is not activated), but once the car starts to move, suddenly the steering lighten up significantly and thereafter is fine.

Doesnt seem to be a problem but just a little weird it was designed that way.

Collected my 508sw yesterday!

Saw Bro THX's Oyster 508sw at collection bay, a 508 and a red RCZ (Really cool but no $$$ to buy and also cannot justify the purchase).

Getting nauseous driving the car yesterday and my passengers too. Wondering if it is the new car smell.

Fixing video cam later in the morning ...

Thanks for the info. Will check them out. By the way, how many hours can your unit record continuously? Does it auto-record when you start your engine?

Just drove out of AutoFrance about 4 hours ago with my 508SW. smile2

Brothers & Sisters, if you see a champagne-coloured 508SW with SKH plate, please keep a wide berth during this few weeks. tongue

To my SA Nathan: Thanks for the staying back so late to provide a very detailed and patient explanation.

Congrats! Anyway, I saw your ride last Friday when I collected mine. You added the chrome wing mirror cover. It looks cool. Still pondering if I should add a pair too.

Bros, thinking to spray paint my 508 allure rims to either GunMetal Grey, Matt Black or Glossy Black ...

Any suggestions on which color looks best on the stock rims on white 508?

Thanks!!

My feel is that the chrome pieces won't suit above-mentioned colours unless you dechrome like I did. But that's just me.

Otherwise, I am crazy about matt black. On the right rims, they can look damn attitude and they are easy to clean. Gloss black is also classy.

Bro Xenogen, what do you mean by Chrome pieces, you are referring to the rims being Chrome? or?

Just sharing, I've got this contact, freelance paint sprayer for rims, brake calipers from VAGSG.
He is very popular in Volkswagen forum and I saw pictures and his workmanship is pretty good at a very good price and down time is around 4 hrs unlike workshop which requires 2 days.
Hence wanna try his service and pondering on the colors.. Smile

Hi all,

What is the tyre pressure for 508 you guys maintain?

I went to check it was at 275kpa and i lower it down to the recommended 240.
however I am thinking why did AF pump it to 275 when recommended is 240....

Thanks.

275kpa will give harsh ride and strain to the suspension components.

240 to 250 kpa is nicer.

36 PSI or about 250 kPa will be good.

When I collected my car, it was at the recommended pressure. I believe the reasons why we sometimes receive our ride with an overinflation are as follows:

1) Either the technician or the Salesperson has forgot to ensure that it is at recommended pressure.

2) The overinflation is done by PSA-Citroen in France. They overinflate the tires to reduce the wear on the tires due to the long stagnant period and also compensate any loss of pressure during the long 'cruise' trip from France to our island. It is also a precaution in case the car is not sold and has to be parked somewhere for a long period of time.

The practice is consistent with what some tyre shop will recommend that we pump our spare tyre to 45 PSI. We just need to check on it annually. You would not want to have an badly underinflate spare when you need it.

Thus it is always good to do a pressure check the moment you collect the car. Just drive to the Shell opposite AF.
