Re: Who’s happy with their Born ?

Other than the sluggish infotainment system and bugs, I am very happy with my Born. Wouldn't go back to a combustion engine especially diesel with DPF regens and all that headache. It's much smoother and quieter than any car I had in the past and not polluting the place when driving it makes me feel...

Re: Phone charging issues

My Samsung works OK with it. It's a slowish charge though. The cable set that came with the car snapped after a few months. The way the port is located in that armrest cubby makes it very easy to bend or snap it.

Re: Jeez EV car insurance!

Last year I paid £336 with quotemehappy. This year the renewal was £387 and comparison sites came back hundreds more no matter what. Safe to say I snapped that renewal price up, but I fear next year!

Re: Born has 7 speakers now

Sounds like rear speakers to me, shame I missed out on that.

Weirdly enough the ID3 still just states 'Speakers in front'

Re: Noisey Brakes

Taking mine into the workshop again, as it's sound like I'm driving around an old banger. Tried the usual tricks of hard braking and braking in neutral to avoid the regen and no joy.

VW AG need to pull their finger out. I'm a software engineer and no way would these stupid bugs get to a customer with competent QA. They can even keep crap developers, and their work would never get past QA until it was right... at least the easy to spot bugs anyhow.

Re: Update 3.2.1 now available - TPI 93S2

Just reporting back as my overnight charge has worked fine with my Hypervolt on the latest software. I have it set on the Hypervolt itself to only charge during the intelligent octopus hours. I don't trust the intelligent Octopus app as it didn't work for me and I don't like the 30 minute window it ...

Cupra Hull are very good and had it all done today. So far not very impressed. On the way home it popped up with new settings available and turned the air con off twice in the space of 5 minutes. For all it's marketing not much seems to have changed

Re: Update 3.2.1 now available - TPI 93S2

Mine is in today for the update, battery recall and a few others snags. Might not be done today but I'll report back once I get my car and see how it is.
