    BOSE: reduced luggage compartment volume

    I have the Bose and think it only gives you a deeper under boot floor storage area, but its fine for my type 2 cable. Not sure you would notice it much to be honest. I can still get 2 golf carry bags in mine and 2 sets of big golf bags and trollies with rear seats down

    Review our 4S build [Well, mine with input from Dad :p)

    This is the best reply I have seen but add electric sport sound. It’s addictive and you will regret it if you don’t as you can’t add it later

    S/W Update

    Heard about the 12v issue but I use timer and profile and change it regularly from the app and keep car plugged in and never had a problem. Not sure why some cars have and some haven’t. It means the car is going to sleep after being woken by the app but some cars are clearly not and draining 12v...

    Not impressed real world test. Battery issues or just marketing lies?

    2 ways. At home on AC charging. Use the preheat / precool button in the car or app and set to your departure / end of charging time. This will warm the main battery as well a little for your departure time and will give you more range. For rapid DC charging set sat nav to the IONITY station and...

    brand new Taycan Turbo - creases on seat bolster ok?

    They do crease but not until someone has sat in it a few times and definitely not like that, if the sales guy doesn’t rectify to as new with no creases I would escalate to dealer principal. Which dealership is this ?

    22kW on-board AC charger - Is it needed in the UK

    Bottom line the costs of installing 3 phase are rarely worth it at home on the basis that most people charge between 20% and 90% overnight and 7kw charging will happily do this overnight. 3 phase might be fully charged by 3am rather than 6am but unless you want it fully charged while your still...

    22kW on-board AC charger - Is it needed in the UK

    Because the Taycan will only charge at maximum of 11Kw, the charger Sorry I was referring to current models without fast on board charger. Yes of course it will charge faster if you have 3 phase at home and the 22kw charger on board 👍

    22kW on-board AC charger - Is it needed in the UK

    Yes Tesla wall connector works fine with any EV, I use mine to charge the Taycan. If you have 3 phase at home then 22kw will give you a faster charging speed but if you have single phase then no point. Other than you will get 11kw on faster AC chargers as the Taycan will not charge at 22kw anyway

    22kW on-board AC charger - Is it needed in the UK

    You can only get 22kw with 3 phase at home and the Taycan will not charge at that speed anyway so not worth it

    Interesting Tesla say the cameras need to be realigned as well but they actually don't they will recalibrate themselves on that car.

    New clarification from Porsche on Long Term Storage - with a bonus

    Thanks for sharing. This is not surprising any EV will do this if left for long term without being charged and you keep waking the car up. My Tesla would be exactly the same if you keep waking the car from the app. The key here is long term storage, I don't see this as an issue
