Re: Help with VIN#s on V2s

Thanks to all that replied. In late August the supplying dealer agreed that my allocated car had gone off grid. He proposed that another car be allocated to me and a V2 Tech-L that had completed production was allocated to us. Good news is this car is ready and my wife will be picking up tomorrow! F...

Re: My Born small improvement’s

Do you know if the front and rear speakers are the same size of fitment? If so, I'm looking to put the Focals into the front doors and using the removed OEM front speakers and fit them to the rear doors. As the sound from the back for me is rear fill only, I don't need decent speakers in there. Yes...

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control
