Im thinking about buying C3 Aircross

Post by Aircrosser » Sun Oct 27, 2019 4:54 pm

Hello all this is my first post here :)
I currently own a BMW E39 Sport and Im considering buying a C3 Aircross to replace it (Ulez/time for change are the main reasons, but truth be told if it wasn't for the emission zone expansion I wouldn't be getting rid of it - it's a great car!) there's a couple of Aircross's fairly close to me that I'll be looking at tomorrow. Am hoping to get a few answers to some of the questions I have before I view:

1. Is there a buyers guide with things/issues to look out for?

2. Are there any users on here with 2 or more child seats fitted? I have young family and can get 3 child seats in current car with decent amount of legroom spare, I realise the space is less in the Aircross but wondering how it might compare

3. The Flair model has a reverse cam as standard. But is there a way to activate the cam without going into reverse?

4. Is the Grip Control with Hill Descent only available on auto models?

5. Has anyone retro fitted a wireless charger?

6. I've seen something called Connected Cam, I hear it's not available on the Aircross, is the best alternative a dash cam?

1. Nothing in particular I can think of.
4. No, you can get it as an option on the mid spec and it's standard (I think) on the manual Flair.
6. That's right, it would have to be a dash cam.

3. Rear camera only works whilst in reverse gear on mine, unless the 2020 spec is any different?

If this helps, a friend of mine runs two of them as driving school cars, hence they get a bit of abuse. He has not had any issues with either of them.
