I try to use everything occasionally just to make sure it's still working and to keep it freed up.

Which would you rather do? Take to a garage for them to tell you it's gunged up and broken through lack of use? Or take it to a garage who tell you it's worn out? Might as well have the use of all your toys Smile Robin

Hi,

Turn off "Auto". It turns climate into a conventional heater , stops using the compressor and reduces the engine load.

Sure I read somewhere that you are best selecting access height before you come to a complete stop to preserve tyres and suspension, as there is some side ways pressure on the wheels as the car drops. Nanocom Evo

I have got into the habit of pressing the down arrow as I slow down to park. That way, the car is pretty much lowered before or just a little after I switch off the engine. I do like the idea though of having a menu set option that is your prefered parking height Idea

I also lower my D4 when I have parked. This, together with gathering my wallet, keys, etc., lets the turbo cool down a bit before I switch off. Thumbs Up Discovery 4 Workshop Manual: http://bit.ly/22l8YHh

Yes it is less stressful on the handbrake, gearbox parking claw etc. etc.
