    Whatever happened to...

    That would be me :) We've been together since that Swansea meet in 2004 and married 11 years this Sunday :)

    New car delays.

    EV6 on order since Mid-September with an original March delivery date which felt long enough. Now I may be looking at a 3 month push back to June so not too happy about that. Dealer thinks they are being a bit pessimistic and thinks it will come forward as they tend to under-promise and...

    When are you going fully electric?

    You absolutely do get the keys :)

    When are you going fully electric?

    I use Onto at the moment whilst I'm between cars. I think they're good for short to mid-term rentals but for anything long term I think you'll find normal PCP/Leasing is going to be a fair bit cheaper. But as a company they've been very easy to deal with so far.

    The "Top Gear", Season 24/25/26 thread

    Never heard of Eddie Kidd? Hell, I'm old enough to have seen him in action and I'm only 46 :D

    OcUK Dadsnet thread

    Nah. If my daughter wants to get in bed with me as she wants a cuddle then it's my job to give her a cuddle. I'll take the broken sleep any day. She's almost 6 now and sleeps in her own bed all the time, only wanting to come in with us on the very rare occasion she might be ill. And I'll let...

    Have you ever stopped for food at services with a 5 year old? :D

    When are you going fully electric?

    It's water cooled....you're not going to be extending it. Extensions go against the standards anyway so it's not going to happen. What I think will happen is once the trial is completed and they see all of the issues they face, they'll end up refitting a lot of cables with longer versions. It's...

    When are you going fully electric?

    All Superchargers have CCS now. Original stalls that were Type 2 only have all been upgraded with dual cables with include CCS. All newer Superchargers are CCS only.

    WBAC Values

    I've just cleared my £34k of finance and they're offering £41.5k. Was just wondering how much they were going to try and bash me down :)

    WBAC Values

    How are Cazoo when selling to them? They've offered a more than decent amount for my car but I assume they're going to hammer it down as much as possible? They'll struggle, it's very clean and I've tidied up any small blemishes.

    Who caught your eye last year?

    Tesla Model 3

    I wish I could relive this moment. Once you've owned an EV for a while, whilst it never gets old, you never quite get that same initial feeling again :)

    Don't be too smug. It will come back and bit you on the arse one day :)

    Tesla Model 3

    It has the potential to. If you're constantly poling the API for data then the car never goes to sleep and so uses more energy, even when sitting still doing "nothing". What things like Teslafi and Teslamate do is have sleep periods that stop asking for data if certain conditions are...

    When are you going fully electric?

    I saw the Ioniq5 at Fully Charged Live, I like the outside but not keen on the interior. Saw my first one out in the street yesterday and it's a lot large than it appeared to be when sat on it's own. In amongst the other cars it looks to be quite big. I'm more than likely cancelling my Model3...

    Subscription models for car spec upgrades... your thoughts?

    I don't know of any way to upgrade a Tesla battery apart from those odd circumstances I mentioned. There's a one of purchase to unlock quicker acceleration on some cars, but not all.

    Subscription models for car spec upgrades... your thoughts?

    That was more of a byproduct of the manufacturing system rather than a proper option. When swapping from one type of battery to another before the actual model was released, some smaller battery cars shipped with a larger battery. At a later date, there was an option to unlock the extra capacity.

    20 years - a stroll down memory lane

    I still pop in for a little look around but don't post much these days. Too many memories to list from here. Made some damn good friends and we still get to see each other when we can. Growing families make that difficult for everyone but we still have good times and make more memories each...
