Today we sold our Gen 1 GTS and have picked up our new (to us) 2023 GTS with just 1100 miles.

No pics yet but here’s the code PR1AJMD5.

A few questions…

1. Is it right that they don’t come with a manual/service book anymore?
2. Can the CarPlay screen be expanded to fill the entire display?
3. Does the diamond button still have the same programmable ability? I like it to be the surround view.
4. Is there wireless charging somewhere?
5. Is there anything on the Gen 3 I can explore that isn’t on the Gen 1?

Thanks all.

1. Opinions differ - I got a hard copy one last year.
2. Not if you mean the Nav screen, no.
3. Yes.
4. Inside the front armrest, in a sort of slot on the left - it's crap.
5. I shall leave to others, not having had a Gen 1!

I think you can get software / module from NZ that expands the CarPlay to fill the whole screen. I saw a post about it on here.

4. Looking at your spec, your car hasn’t got the wireless charger option fitted.

An extra Gen 1 to Gen 3 question….

Our Gen 1 seemed to have cooling in the glovebox but the Gen 3 doesn’t.

Were we just imagining it on the Gen 1?

If no, is it still available on Gen 3 and is it something that needs to be configured in settings?

It’s standard on a 23 car and not a spec option I think?

Apologies, as I didn’t realise it’s standard now 👍
