Re: Hi from Swindon... picking up next week.

I’m 2 months and 4000 miles in, and still struggling with the steering wheel buttons - although they are not really buttons, which is the problem. The ones underneath the screen are only a little better, in that you can touch them for a single input as well as swipe but they really should be lit at ...

Re: MyEnergi Zappi

Just had a Zappi charger fitted at home and I have to say I’m finding it a little underwhelming. It does what it needs to do ie. charges the car but the interface and display seems very out of date, and the app isn’t the most intuitive or modern. I don’t have PV panels but am on an ev tariff that p...

Re: New car, what network cards/apps

I also use the Bonnet app. Covers a number of networks and is very easy to use. Charges a set rate depending on whether you use pay as you go or a pre paid monthly package; ie. Pay as you go is 0.50 per kWh vs the normal rate of 0.69 per kWh at Ionity. chargers. Works well across the fast charger ne...

Re: EV Home Charging costs vs Petrol Costs!!!

It’s an interesting discussion. I got lucky with an impulse decision to buy the Born from stock with only a quick check on financials to make sure the sums worked. They did, and still do - but only thanks to locking in to the EDF go electric tariff immediately on purchase. I say lucky because it was...

Re: Hi from Suffolk

I primarily use Bonnet EV. It covers lots of networks including Ionity and GeniePoint, and plenty of others. At Ionity it reduces the charge from £0.69 per kWh to £0.50 per kWh if you pay as you go through the app, or £0.45 or less if you go for a pre paid package. The £0.50 or less rate applies at ...

Re: Puncture - Anyone know if Repairable?

Looks too close top the sidewall to be safely fixable to me. With a 215 tyre you’ve got 153mm in total, aligned to the centre line of the tyre to play with for a fix. That looks too far out in the pic. My understanding is that self sealing tyres only provide a temporary get me home type solution, no...
