Re: Trigger pulled too!

I got a Polar 27.5Amp charger a couple of years ago for £95 with Government subsidy, and it's perfectly OK. I've got a Rolec 32amp tethered in a box in the dining room waiting for fitting so hope it'll be okay The wait till September is nothing compared with the 8months we had to wait for the first...

Re: Trigger pulled too!

That's really useful information so thanks all. I had concluded that a "connected" charge point was pretty superfluous for me. I haven't got a night tariff and based on the composition of my bill and available tariffs from my supplier, it likely won't save me much at all anyway although I'm yet to d...

Re: Trigger pulled too!

Not properly researched yet but will be soon. I discounted the BMW one straightaway. It's massive and too much of a target in my opinion. Seems more like a free advertising hoarding for BMW rather than a subtle charging point. Plus they were running short of them apparently. It's definitely going to...

Re: Trigger pulled too!

Oh, btw did your sales guy mention that BMW had been throwing in a free Type 2 in Q1 and Q2 sales and he was getting parts to ring to see if they were going to continue that practice in Q3?

Re: Trigger pulled too!

Yep, new model. they said late August but it'll be registered September. Personalised Reg anyway so it won't show. PM me if you want, we'll compare notes on chargers before deciding. The sales guy gave me a leaflet for a company he'd had in a short while ago. £299 non-tethered. £349 tethered for Rol...

Trigger pulled too!

It's on it's way albeit with a wait.

White Rex with Sport pack, pro media and parking

Early September for delivery. Plenty of time to get the charge point and a few other things sorted :mrgreen:

Re: Questions Questions!

Park Assist: Honestly, if you don't live / work in the city, that is a useless option. Just too bad we can't only pick the back camera because it looks great and can be handy at times. It worked okay on the test car except it uses adjacent cars as lineup and as the one car behind was slightly on th...

Re: Install Thule roof rack tracks

I may have misunderstood but while discussing sunroof weight, I thought my iGenius mentioned the new model CF roof panel was being replaced with aluminium. Don't take that as gospel though.

Re: Range Extender maintenance cycle required

If the ReX never cuts in, the petrol in the tank will slowly age and take on moisture which could lead to deterioration in components and not do the engine much good when it does burn it. It's not good leaving fuel lying around for long periods unused.
