    Anyone know?

    Autohold saves you having to hold your foot on the brake at all when stopped. Very handy particularly in peak hour. Every car should have one. This is regardless of whether you drive the car in auto...

    I use nanolex on the car & rims as a polish & also use a nanolex wash which maintains a layer of protection. I find that if I wash the car weekly, 95% of all brake dust etc just washes off.

    Thanks Hillbilly. I'll try as you suggest & report back but suspect mine will just turn off once I exceed 15 kph. If so I think only think that yours has been coded differently.
