    Two irritation points after a year of ownership…

    Hi Kingske and others Also a one year 4S owner with a fairly extensive list of options and also generally happy with the car. Over here also residuals are astonishing - I guess the chip shortage has some benefits! Just ordered a Mercedes GLE de and already being told it may arrive minus some...

    Insulated glass...?

    On the question of heat insulated glass and mobile reception interference. My Taycan has heat insulated glass. For some time now mobile reception in the car has been poor with many dropped calls. My daughter told me the other day to get rid of the car! Rather than take her advice immediately I...

    📣 Official Release: 2022 Porsche Taycan Upgrades & New Colors

    They should fix the ridiculous sat nav route planner which is beyond attrocious. Wont even pick their own ionoity fast chargers in Europe. On a 700 mile journey it was planning one stop of 1 hour 41minutes! A better route planner had ALL stops on the journey adding to 1 hour 31 minutes. BTW...

    Pic of Head Up Display (HUD) & Wireless CarPlay/Charging

    yes. I agree the option cost mounts up. My personal choice was to leave off rear wheel steering, PDDC as the car handles v well with its low centre of gravity. Actually the PDDC keeps the car so flat it made me feel ill when i tried it and apparently the engineers decided to dial down its...

    Pic of Head Up Display (HUD) & Wireless CarPlay/Charging

    Hi The HUD has quite a bit of info including the semi autonomous drive systems, lane keep, innodrive, speed, speed limit, nav directions (but not apple car play nav systems like Waze, google maps) incoming telephone calls and is configurable with other info. What it does not show is night vision...

    Uncomfortable Seat

    so on the 14 way “comfort“ seats suggest to anyone reading this to avoid them at all costs. To anwer an earlier thread mine are un-ventilated but heated. Actually when the heater is on they feel even less comfortable. As has been said they lack cushioning on the bottom part esp. towards the part...

    Can HUD display navigation direction from Apple CarPlay?

    Hi apple car play only appears on the centre dash screen and not on the binnacle or HUD. However the hud is excellent for showing speed limit , actual speed, navigation and automatic drive functions eg lane keep, active speed contol, innodrive, and calls. I wish it showed the night vision...

    Night Vision Assist Saved Me Last Night

    Hi I agree its a great option. We have a lot of deer around here and they appear out of nowhere. What I find though is that I am virtually on top of the deer before it really registers and also in mine I tend to be looking at the HUD. A warning appears there but you dont really have time to look...

    Uncomfortable Seat

    I have the 14 way comfort seats. Car has done less than 1000 miles but yesterday I had to spend a lot of time sitting in the car waiting for my wife to do a hospital visit. We both think that the seats are very hard - I have had a succession of Porsches and the only previous one that came close...

    Uncomfortable Seat

    Hi. I think you are right about the seats. I think they are called comfort seats but they are anything but. Today i had to sit outside a hospital in London while my wife was inside. The seats were so uncomfortable. Part of the problem is that they do not seem to have much cushioning. My wife...

    What does this mean in the HUD?

    Hi Ok so here is some more on this mysterious number that appears in the HUD as in the picture above. This is clearly related to the car sensing that it is moving to a new speed limit area. And as far as I can see it only works when Innodrive is engaged and probably when you have set a...

    4s won’t take 50kw charger

    Hi again interesting that you can get 22kw as until recently ac was limited to around 11kw. Its now an option to go to 22kw. All source london charge points are ac only and at 11kw it can take a v long time to charge and you block a charging station in the process for others by being restricted...

    4s won’t take 50kw charger

    Hi all the uk dealerships are meant to be installing dc fast chargers so you could try one of those if close or an Ionity one if nearby - but there aren‘t many in the uk at the moment. Plugging in first may be the answer. V frustrating for you but look forward to hearing.
