Re: Supercharger price hikes

Musk does have a history of getting bored with projects and winding them back or cancelling them. Even worse at tombstoning that google.
Not something to pin your colours to!

Supercharger price hikes

Sign of things to come? “Tesla drastically increases Supercharger prices around the world” https://electrek.co/2019/01/18/tesla-increases-supercharger-prices/ Tesla doesn’t want to make money from supercharging (so they say) but instead use the money to expand the network. But that’s at odds with th...

Re: Stop/Start & Hold Function

You folks with your PDKs and the perfect hold function really don't know the stress we manual drivers suffer all in the cause of purist motoring. :D :D :D Surely, for purist, you'd have a mechanical hand brake lever and you'd do a normal hill start? :) Electronic parking brake on a manual transmiss...

Re: Rear Light Bar

I thought this was all quite simple, but we all seem to have different ways to stay stationary in our cars! All I do is one of these: 1. Keep foot on brake pedal if stopping momentary (e.g. junction, roundabout). Brakelight stays on. 2. Activate hill hold via brake pedal if stopping momentarily on ...

Seats do get a bit to hot.

Three lights gives third degree burns to my butt, (sorry for inflicting that thought on you).
I suggest you get that seen to (the obviously malfunctioning seat, not your butt!).

Re: Parking 'home and away'

I bravely parked much closer to the entrance to Sainsbury today instead of the lone ICE space in the middle of the EV charge bays :) No drama. The bloke in the knackered old random box next to me was careful not to bash doors. On the way out, I spotted a rather nice Alfa Giulia QF pulling out. Nice ...

Re: Stop/Start & Hold Function

Perhaps it's a function of my age, but I detest start/stop systems and disable them as the first button press after switching on the engine. In fact, if I forget and inadvertently get an engine kill, my blood pressure rises? I put it down to thinking that it has to be prematurely wearing parts of t...

Re: Rear Light Bar

Things have changed a little. In a Tesla you just stop and it takes care of the rest. If you are following behind other traffic you don't even have to stop yourself! Recommended (and frankly obvious) way in a Porsche, by the way, for people who haven't thought about right/wrong since they passed th...
