    So what terrain setting do you select for over the bonnet water crossings ?

    I would be thinking maximum traction being mud/ruts or rock crawl ?

    Was everything ok with the disco later.....no failures with any electronics ?

    Agreed, its easy for people to tell others that they should have kept going when they weren't there and its not their car that was at risk.

    The wise man backs out to drive another day - the fool drives on and floats away never to be seen again.
    You made the right choice in my opinion.

    Good question Brett

    Every thing worked after and during, a dribble of water got inside but my window was down during the knee deep 40metre part of the crossing . My car was great as usual. A parking brake fault report cleared on a restart the next day.

    LLAMS was in super extended mode- LLams was on max and the car did the extra bit when the water gets up to the doors. Low range of course in 2nd.

    Traction mode is a interesting question. I had it in sand mud... but found half way back up the mountain that it was in normal mode. Not sure if this was me before or after the swim. I had been in that mode for a few days and was a little surprised to find it back to road mode. I think I saw a "Dont PANIC" button on the traction control sellector on another post. I am not certain now if I had checked my Panic mode this but I usually would so I assume but cannot be possative it was in sand/mud at the time I went in.
