25mm square mesh may give some  reassurance  you are protected from larger stones etc,  but I suspect a direct hit  from something heavy enough to cause a refrigerant leak  may still be able to  burst through, more often than not. I suppose every little bit helps. .   I'd be more convinced if someone testify ,,or produce photographic evidence  of a significant stone  'strike' that was prevented. Anything it has been able to stop  would probably have left marks or distortion on the mesh.

 It looks to me that most of the blockages and fin flattening is due to insect strikes  and airborne vegetation, much of which would still get through a 25mm mesh.  Anything fine enough to protect from these could  seriously impede airflow through the radiator. 

I would be very cautious of trying to clear the fins  with a power washer , or even a hose, or airline.   These can easily flatten the very delicate fins, and in some cases might have been what actually caused some of the flattening in the first place.

Maybe a  blowing them out, ideally from behind, using a photographers dust blower  (a squeezy rubber bulb)  might work, with a bit of delicate  manual clearance   and fin straightening.  But it would be extremely tedious. >:( 

You can buy bug removal spray.  I dont know if this might speed  up  the decay of insect remains.    Perhaps some of this and gentle washing will help. 

I looked at the Wickes site  .Their site analysts   have spotted a recent  surge in interest in the product. ;D

The USB needs to be formatted as FAT32 and that puts it under FIFO, first in first out.

If you want your music in a particular order then that's the order it must be saved. You can override that with random play though.

Whenever I want to add a new album or track, I format the stick then use Windows 'send to' in the order I want. You can send a complete album across and that 'should' save it in the album track order. Just save each album one at a time.

Hope that makes sense.

same here on my 2018, 30k miles

Luckily it was replaced under extended warranty , it had a slight leak from the pipe joint but I've never seen a condenser in such a state for the mileage.

I also use a tiny USB memory stick to play audio files. I have only once seen my Android phone, (self connect) wirelessly to the car so if I want to use AndroidAuto the phone has to be in the data USB socket, so memory stick not possible.

Correct, all 4 corners had lost exactly 2 psi so no TPMS trigger

I play  music from a usb stick.  I put the music on from my Desktop computer  . The car is able to follow the albums and  tracks and artist details ,and search for them. I assume these details were added  by the the music host thingie on my computer. I think they use little sidecar files but its way beyond my knowledge.

Only problem so far is the tracks and albums are not ideally arranged and I would like some playlists. . I havnt quite figured out  yet how to get these onto the USB stick. There is probably a way, but if all else fails I could create the playlists as new albums.

When you plug a usb in, and select usb as an option, a menu comes up, you just select 'music'.
Id recommend  just putting a few music files and albums  on the  stick initially   until you know it can do what you need
