im going for bigger wheels and better seats

I can’t believe that on my Taycan and Etron you have to pay for Keyless entry!
The cars are keyless go so it proves the tech is built into the cars and they charge to turn it on!
My dealer was saying that in the future we will be able to turn stuff on and off like a subscription with OTA updates...

I believe this is what most manufacturers will be doing soon

I believe BMW are looking at offering 3 options for extras like heated seats
- buy outright
- annual fee
- monthly fee (handy as only be used used 6 months a year)

Haven’t confirmed my order as yet as passed on the January build slot I was offered (have paid full deposit already though).... need to call in to dealer again in the New Year; a March or April build slot would work well for me..... I’m pretty settled on my spec myself

I looked at e-tron and I-pace and was really surprised how expensive the insurance was, agree Taycan won’t be cheaper than either of those :CWL:
I’ve been checking insurances for my business on all EV . It’s ridiculously high, but then the performance is way more than usual. I think they are all scared about battery tech and replacement cost . Best Tesla M3 insurance was £1800, e class diesel usually £700, similar list price . But acceleration better than an Enzo Ferrari doesn’t help ...

insurance companies are frustrated by the relative lack of data. Ice vehicles have many decades worth of repair and maintenance costs. The primary high value EV are Tesla and they don’t have dealerships and do repairs in house. It’s difficult to model EV costs. Insurance companies replace uncertainty with money, yours specifically
