Re: First World Problems - Which one to choose?!

I dont know why people always talk about payback time for the cost of the heat pump. When you buy any other option, do you think of the payback time? No, in most cases it's a write off, people rarely want to pay much extra for second hand options, it only makes that car easier to sell. If you want t...

Re: Check your Born VIN for recalls!

The bonnet pin striker might be the bonnet lever breaking issue?
Or may be the root causes of the lever to break?

Re: The Lesser Evil

I too went for the copper wheels and no options.
I read somewhere on this forum, you can get stickers to cover the aluminium with copper coloured stickers.

Re: Regen - Power meter

There was a time when the MEB cars heated the battery if it was below 7C until it reached 13C. Then one gets a full blue bar and full power. Ditto the green bar. This annoyed many people as it made short journies very inefficient. The recent versions only heats the battery if it's below 0C and not q...

Re: Honest opinions on commuting please

Charge to 90% and assume you will return with 20%, this means a useable capacity of 70% (assumes 58kWh battery), which equates to 40kWh . Let's assume 3miles/kWh is worst case, e.g winter +70mph +cabin heating. You could get 120 miles out of it. If you cant get 120 miles, then I'm afraid you will ha...
