  1. Electric Cars

    They were faster top end than the stocks, amazing as they are carrying so much more weight, I think they come in at 245kg average? It is only a one lap race isn't it?
  2. Electric Cars

    Range anxiety, I like that.....I'll pass that on.
  3. Electric Cars

    If he turns lights off and doesn't use the heater he gets more distance....which sorta limits things a tad. 50 mile round trip is his limit, after that he worries. He has a Megane too now as the Leaf wasn't the panacea he thought it would be. He has spoken with Nissan about the range issue but has been told that driving conditions, including hills and weather (not too many hills in Norfolk but can be windy) and that the lack of noise can encourage' enthusiastic driving which reduces range. Never has so much fuss, been made about so few, by so many.

  4. No v5,but it is in the trade?

    Yes if it's 'in the trade' No if it isn't. Proper stupid system, try to do the right thing and you can't. Had it this week on a Jazz.
  5. The RAF once flew over my aunties neighbour.
  6. V5 issues advice

    Insure the car, tax at post office and fill in a V62 whilst there, £25 for the new V5. Or make it number 38 phone call, I have to admire your memory.
  7. We all need this like a hole in the head

    spoken like a proper a superhero petrol head. Gasoman, ohh hang on that could be the prop for Heinz Anything less than a 5.7 is a starter motor for me.
  8. We all need this like a hole in the head

    An independant lab', no doubt with not a lot of work on at the moment as is the indie R&D business ATM, using a different drive cycle than that used for offical testing so no apples against oranges.....shameless but interesting that it's even been made the news. Real world, WTF is real world. I drive like a nun, my son drives like a c*nt, which is real world?
  9. VEHICLE INSEPCTION COMPANIES

    ...ahh, but some aren't even this bright. Mondeo a case in point. MOT'd and passed 2 days before pathetic AA visit. MOT clean pass sheet, failure sheet for two lower arms with advise for front pads, on passengers seat along with service book. AA report said it needed two lower arms, AA guy even told me, but he hadn't even jacked the f*cking car up, it was a snowy day and there was slush on the forecourt he didn't wanna get wet. Excuse was that they normally do need lower arms, he got a proper rollocking .....from memory I gave the customer the repairers number, a copy of the parts invoice showing lower arms AND front pads that were changed regardless so NO advise notes and the failure sheet.... customer, a lady, was still very hesitant wanting a discount for the parts needing replacing...no dice. But I did feel her as she had been proper tucked up like a kipper on a private sale, hence why buying another car. The AA check came free with her bank loan or something, some check.
  10. Electric Cars

    Friend of mine has a 16 plate Leaf and he won't go to Mundesley and back from here, that means an 80 mile round trip. ....does he have a problem with his or is that the norm?
  11. BCA Not as description!

    ...but the correct one sir Was it not shown in the photos or has it been changed post sale?
  12. Sale or return fee

    Lawgistics can put what they want but tbh that clause in the real world could/would be unworkable when the shit hits the fan and that lumpy box of slush cogs pulls the pin. The dealer is first port of call, and just taking the original owner to court and getting a return well, best of luck. More an observation than a criticism, I know you mean well.
  13. Electric Cars

    But how many are being sold? Huge percentage increases on miniscule figures are meaningless.
  14. Sale or return fee

    Simply avoid, most will have a sour SOR story.
