Re: Tyre wear

I would have thought tyre wear on the rears would be mostly influenced by the driving style ie how hard the car is accelerated. There is a huge amount of available torque so the potential to wear out the tyres quickly.

Re: Quick hello from UK - Born V2 - first month

Cloudfury2 It’s nice of you to be concerned but I’m sure I won’t focus on it. I think if you notice something as you have, you initially think something is wrong, perhaps even a design fault, but once you have accepted it, your brain ignores it. I’m confident you’ll get used to it.

Re: Quick hello from UK - Born V2 - first month

I have a Born V2. I haven’t noticed an issue with the dashboard being reflected in the windscreen. I suspect it’s one of those things where once you notice it, you get drawn to looking at it. Luckily I am on holiday in Spain- if I was to check it out in my own car I might end up being afflicted as w...

Re: Dashcam Question(s)

It is easy enough for a fitter to do the install but don’t use RS Connect. I booked them to fit dashcams to three cars and they messed up all three installations. I should add that I had Nextbase dashcams in two of them (the units themselves were fine).

Re: Would you have another Born?

I like the car but I am very disappointed at the depreciation and mine has just spent 7 weeks at the dealership waiting for a part that was on back order.

Re: Massive battery recall check - TPI 93Q2

They did the battery check and it was ok. The module blew up while they were checking it. It is now undriveable.

Re: Massive battery recall check - TPI 93Q2

My Born (V2 e-boost) has been at Southampton for 6 weeks waiting for a new canbus comms module. No sign of getting it back anytime soon.
