    Had my wheels redone to match the car color (Gentian Blue).

    Hey Bill - I've got another wheel company to look at the repair - ever hopeful someone will step up and give it a go. WRT rapid charge points in the Bournemouth area - nothing above 50KWh is the answer. The new Porsche facility in Ferndown is meant to be getting 6 points but I think they will...

    Had my wheels redone to match the car color (Gentian Blue).

    A word of warning - don't curb them. I have Taycan Exclusive Porsche Design 21 inch in gloss black - a common option as you will know. I clipped the curb side in a momentary lapse of concentration ( messing with the onboard displays after a service update that changed everything ) not bad, quite...

    Dealer Software Update

    Seems this SW upgrade implementation is a mess. it took me a month to get the car booked in to my local Dealer and today - 2 days before it was due, I get a call to postpone it until the 24th May because they are having big problems with every one that they have attempted so far. Have Porsche...

    Well I have installed a dash cam in my Taycan so I can advise on an ACC connection if you want to do it, but its on fuse panel in the right hand ( drivers ) foot well. I went for the power resources on that side since that's where the - get you out of trouble, open the bonnet when the battery is...

    12 volt dead battery POLL

    I have had the 12 volt flat battery problem but .... It was parked in the garage and was not on charge and had not been used for a couple of days. The 12 volt battery is quite small - compared with an ICE car - it is not required to start an engine after all. I had Garmin Dash camera connected...

    6 Weeks of Taycan Turbo ownership

    Hi Rob No it charges on a timed charge - by which I mean ready to go by a specific time and optimised charging schedule is used in conjunction with that - the timer and the charging profile work hand in hand. Optimised takes it to 85% of full charge for a couple of reasons Firstly - that's the...

    6 Weeks of Taycan Turbo ownership

    Hi Graham - Thanks for your thoughts, you are way ahead of the game having owned Teslas for quite a while. I would agree you have far more charging stations in on your side of the south coast. Its not so much the local options but the lack of super fast chargers - like Ionity around the country...

    6 Weeks of Taycan Turbo ownership

    Seems to me is what 'we' need here in the UK is a Porsche Taycan representative expert - like the US one on the site but understands what is and is not available - or will be available, on UK cars because the options and availably seem to be very different in various regions world wide. Come on...

    6 Weeks of Taycan Turbo ownership

    Appreciate that feedback. Living down on the south coast my options are limited - i think my nearest Ionity is 100 miles away. Its a bit frustrating to think that the world wants to adopt cleaner energy but the ability to do that is restricted by availably and the need to factor in a possible...

    6 Weeks of Taycan Turbo ownership

    Picked up this Taycan Turbo at the end of October - Brand new having kicked around the idea of a hybrid I decided to go the whole way and see if it is possible to live with a fully electric. Went from thinking about it to getting it in about 2 weeks - probably a bit rash but thought I might as...
