    Base Taycan performance in snow

    My brother drove off a cliff edge many years ago descending in the French Alps in a Mitsubishi Shogun. He lived in Chamonix so he drove in snow a lot. His French friends said ‘Did you not realise you should descend in 2WD’. The front wheels turn and grip better if entirely passive. 4WD can...

    Tire pressure question

    I agree but how much weight can you realistically add to a Taycan saloon/sedan. Certainly in terms of an added % to an already very heavy car. I can understand that tyre pressures need to be different with a 1 tonne load added to a 1.5 tonne vehicle. Also thats not what the plate says. The...

    Tire pressure question

    At least there is consistency at higher load across the plates but I think the higher load rating is a bit random unless you are carrying cement mix bags My Car weighs 2500 kg (5500lbs) If its 2 up, my wife and me with a bit of luggage we add about 150kg (330 lbs) This is the recommended load...

    Tire pressure question

    Thanks for the heads up I find it interesting that I have the same 21' inch tyres on my GTS as you have on your Turbo but different plates.... More interesting is that I have the SAME plate on my car as Franks! Mine - GTS 21s Pirellis Franks - CT 4s 21s Good Year

    Tire pressure question

    I had to look at my plaque twice to be sure! My plate shows the reverse of this. Seems a bit bonkers. Is the above photo a Turbo? Mine is a GTS. It’s the reverse at low load 2.6 front 2.7 back. At high load it’s flips to same as above with lower pressure at the front. Seems illogical to me but...

    Out of Spec Youtuber takes delivery of Taycan: Deciding To Buy A Used Taycan Over A New Model 3

    You are all missing the elephant in the room! In the video he released before this one he announces they have been 'dating for months' but they prefer to keep their relationship private. The irony of this contradiction seemed entirely lost on them. He was making videos with his last Mrs in the...

    Mamba Green and Cherry Red colors are gone

    I have heard it from somewhere - Perhaps the same source as you? I don't know where she got it from, I don't think she does either! She is pretty adamant. I can live with it. White and black is also verboten at the moment. We have had too many and they are 'boring' apparently. The rest of the...

    GTS Sport Turismo range was much more than initially indicated/expected on long drive!

    Just noticed this! No Pre warming of the battery this morning. Just been pottering around to work and stuff. A bit of motorway cruising. No optimal hypermiling. Just jumped in and drove this lunchtime. It’s was 12.5 degrees C. This is more like it. That’s a 250 mile range. Nearly!

    Mamba Green and Cherry Red colors are gone

    Here is my ever so personal take on these colours I like Cherry - I had a metallic burgundy Renault Alpine GTA V6 Turbo a long, long time ago. I ordered a Cherry Turbo (silver trim and wheels) Flipped to GTS on launch day and went Crayon (again) because looks smokin hot with all the contrasting...

    GTS Sport Turismo range was much more than initially indicated/expected on long drive!

    What's your motorway cruising speed? Hoping you are going to say 125mph!! I am going to French Alps next week in a GTS with the inefficient RS Spyders (of course) I am going to be 4 up but no roof additions this time and its a saloon so there is a micro advantage over the ST. Hopefully I can...

    Newbie incoming

    Warning! If you stay on here long enough, everything will be recommended! Sensible advice from BigBob. Auto dimming morrors are cheap enough and excellent upgrade too. Not sure what you mean by 'Black Accent Package' or 'Sound Package Plus'? Mamba is such a great colour go for 'Accent Package in...

    Used e-tron GT prices

    Because the 2 screen dash and physical AC buttons are exactly the same in both cars. I thought the photo was self explanatory assuming you have sat in an Etron GT.

    Used e-tron GT prices

    Just had a loan car from Audi while my (fat) Etron SUV is being fettled. It’s an Audi A3 poverty spec. It’s 7 degrees C outside. Leather seats and NO seat heating! Orrible. Manual gearbox!! As old fashioned, utilitarian and agricultural as a horse and cart. The dash reminded me what I am missing...

    Click-bait Cretins have moved to Taycans now…

    Excellent info about this complete and utter, utter nob. Absolutely confirming what I was only 99% sure about. Thank you I like the way you blanked your own email address on the screenshot of the email but left his on view. I might drop him a friendly greeting. Maybe we all could? I nearly...

    Sports Chrono Simple Improvement

    No, I remember now. Guessing you don’t have Chrono Hirschaj? My mate has a CT4 with NO Chrono. No Chrono CT has SPORT on lower central screen. It you have Chrono it changes to GRAVEL. There is no option to change this

    Sports Chrono Simple Improvement

    Just wondering if you can improve the compass by just having the analogue dial and remove the naff digital clock and the unnecessary digital degrees reference?
