The account id google wants is the login email address not the 8 digit code, i think from memory that is what you put into the ...

It wont do any harm but the voltages needed to charge and float efficiently are different. PS just checked mine you have to cycle through the options by pressing the mode button unt...

Re: How much extra would you pay for a BEV Macan?

I would not pay a premium for a BEV Macan, look at the VW id 3 that is priced around the diesel Golf price as it should be. But to be honest because of the charging infrastructure or lack of it, only viable BEV is a Tesla which has its own charging network. Network will naturally get better over tim...

When I sold mine privately they simply contacted the OPC who changed the ownership details on their systems to the new owner. The new owner did thats o any recall etc would go them instead of me.

Re: Headlight lenses WTF is happening?

For those of us not yet suffering this , might be worth spraying them with 303 Aerospace Protectant, I have just wandered out and done that. At least it will provide some UV protection.

Wonder if it will work on my bald head (made worse by my cutting my own hair during lockdown) ?

Re: Transfer Box

Humm the fact they have admitted the issue in US leaves them a bit open in UK. You could claim that the goods were not of merchantable quality and go after the dealer in a small claims court using the consumer rights act of 2015 assuming no one agreed to pay. Car would have to be less than 6 years o...
