Jim, thank-you for the reply. The idea of saving money by buying the BEV and then renting for road trips I need to explore.

Re: 2019 range extender - do they make sense for long journeys ?

Re: Have smaller 6" screen anyway to upgrade to 9" screen?

I just bought a slightly cracked functional one for 380 free shipping. The only other one looks like an elephant sat on it for 800. I had been looking for weeks on eBay.
