Re: Status 03

could be end of next year 2024 or beginning of 2025 - this is just an estimate If you'll excuse the vernacular, "bollocks to that". This isn't Covid-days any more and people aren't, in most cases, willing to wait a year with no delivery dates to get a bog-standard car. The upshot is that ...

Re: Would you have another Born?

Tesla do appear to have the charging network nailed though to be fair. It's worth noting that, depending on your use-case, this might be almost immaterial. We've had our Born for 18 months now and in that time, it's been charged in anger (i.e. because we needed to, not just because it's free!) on p...

There is absolutely nothing quick about the MEB infotainment platform ;)

Re: Would you have another Born?

Yes, I would, but I would want (expect) a couple of things to be different: 1) The computer hardware running the main infotainment needs to be significantly more powerful and the software needs an overhaul to keep it current and improve the nasty, laggy performance. That said, I mostly use it with A...

Re: MY CUPRA app

My app shows the range gently increasing in proportion to the time on charge and the range is entirely accurate/reasonable BUT as soon as the charge ends it puts something bizarre in the range section ( today it was 205mi @ 76%, but as soon as it stopped at 80% the range changed to 124mi, its a 77k...

Good news. Fingers crossed for a quick fix!

Re: Check out new features on the My Cupra App

Let's not forget the hugely useful(less) Costs Management feature, much more important (NOT) than, say, checking your car is actually locked, or is where you expect it to be, or... Both door/window/lock status and vehicle location should (car spec and software versions allowing) both be available t...

Re: Massive battery recall check - TPI 93Q2

Now that I know it's the car at fault (probably caused by the battery work) that's exactly what I plan to do. Unfortunately being Cupra they don't have any available appointments for weeks if I need a courtesy car. This has left me in a bit of a pickle considering it only went in originally to fix ...

Re: Massive battery recall check - TPI 93Q2

I'm also confused. It's a bit like having a blocked filler nozzle, but blaming the filling stations for pouring petrol on the floor every time you try to fill up. I appreciate that it's an awful situation and there's no question that public charging infrastructure isn't all it could be, but your fir...

Re: MY CUPRA app

I didn't think the additional user stuff worked at all on the app?
