Re: Odd software behaviour

First bug so far after picking mine up a week ago: yesterday I parked, locked the car with the fob, walked away. Came back an hour later and lo and behold, the driver's side daytime running light and parking lights were on. But neither on the other side. When I unlocked the doors, the mirrors didn'...

Re: EV Road trip in a Cupra Born - The Late Brake Show

Is the Born really more expensive than the ID.3 in the UK with equivalent options? For the most part it's the other way around here in Germany.

Re: Odd software behaviour

It’s a shame, because the car itself is really good and a pleasure driving, but software is such an integral part of cars these days, VW really should get their shit together. For a laugh, look up all the articles about the drama going on at VW's recently minted software division, Cariad. Its failu...

Re: My Born small improvement’s

Turns out finally someone from the German Born forum brought their Born to Kufatec to be a guinea pig for the rear speaker programming. Supposedly Kufatec now has the proper coding for the rear speakers. They do. I emailed them to ask what it was... unsurprisingly they declined to share. Well yeah ...

Re: First reasonoble length drive.... Hmm

I'll wire one in. How stupid I'll just stick a strip of LEDs across the top with a sensor of some sort. I should add that I am working on a small PCB that will use a single thin fibre-optic cable to detect the colour of the RGB's in the door panels (I don't think there are RGB anywhere else are the...

No glovebox light? Is mine not working, or have they actually not bothered?
No f**ks given by Cupra apparently... have to buy a small, stick-on battery-powered light with a motion sensor.

Re: Winter wheels

What are the rules like in the UK for putting on rims that aren't specifically listed in the CoC? It's crazy strict here in Germany, to the point that anyone with a 77kwh e-boost only has a a small handful of options - and anything not in the CoC has to be individually approved by the manufacturer ...
