      Compared to the renault megan etec for example its slightly longer and a couple inches higher/wider

      A lot smaller boot/a lot faster 0 to 60/ more HP/Torque

      Wonder what silly AP it might have?

      Thats if /when it makes the scheme

      Strong guess it SOON will

        Yes Kezo too low for me but looks amazing

        It was worse as I wasn’t expecting it and I struggle as a everyday vehicle sadly

        After 3yrs of crouching down to get into the v low corsa F it will be a  joy to have the extra 100mm headroom and being able to stop on the line at the traffic lights rather than having to pull up 8ft short just to be able to see when they changed  lol   ps Megan seat pumps up/down v high/low to suit

          Gee I’m sorry if I upset you my comments were tongue in cheek I’m afraid I’m 57 going on 18 I’ve never grown ! I would only ever charge overnight on my home charger yes I feel sorry for those that have to use charger away from home as they cost a bomb ?

          Gracious reply imo Menorca Mike and tbh in forum discussions things can sometimes be taken the wrong way than was intended

          I personally find this forum quite open and chatty even more so with the introduction of EVs and all of the exciting new developments that they bring

          So much better than post after post about blooming vw tiguans lol

            Well great news my iconic Megan E Tec is in the country

            Should get to dealers anytime within the next 3 weeks

            Handover 5 weeks from now (fingers crossed)

            If so thats only 17 weeks total wait

            All good as factory ordered 3 months before end of 3yr lease and before the £700 AP increase this quarter

            I contacted my dealer a week ago and mentioned the batch of 42 ceramic grey/black roof  were on its way over ( heard about it on the grapevine) and if poss could they grab one for me.

            Pics will follow as will my honest user reviews

              Just so everyone is aware

              REF/Handback GCB

              You can return your car to any motorbility dealer irrespective of manafacturer

              Just pre arrange before doing so

              Word to the wise

              If returning on a Saturday the GCB inspection may well be untaken by junior staff

              As it was in my case

              We all failed to notice the absence of the parcel shelf which yrs later still remains in my shed

                Update getting there

                stage 2/3 now completed DNO Scottish and southern fuse upgraded

                DNO Fuse upgrade took less than 15 mins to install as they were able in myvparticular case able to hook over a fuse adaptor which by all accounts speeds their job up

                Very quick job ( sat outside at 7.30am waiting to gat in made them wait till 8am as wasnt pre warned of this )

                All in all v quick and now ready for final stage 3/3

                Easee home charger install date

                  Point taken but also

                  Pretty handy when trying to join a roundabout safely or get passed a truck thats veering into your lane

                  Like most things

                  Positives and negatives I agree

                      They all have registration plates. YouTuber Winston Sterzel, who reshared the drone footage, alleges that Chinese EV makers register the cars and claim to have sold them to show numbers and obtain subsidies from the government.

                              The culling of dealerships continues it seems. Renault are cutting 29 dealers country wide, though the three areas with the most cuts are Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Midlands. Renault started the year with 153 dealerships with a reduction of dealer groups from 54 to 46 https://cardealermagazine.co.uk/publish/renault-slashes-huge-number-of-car-dealers-as-it-radically-downsizes-network/286859

                              Thanks for the link very informative as it turns out

                              In more ways than one

                              As suspected

                              Sniffed around for 2 secs and used the search box and could see what dealers really thought about Mobility customers

                              There is 2 parts to this 2018 thread and I havent looked for anything else as yet

                                  I am unable to change over to intelligent octopus for 2 reason 1 because mobility are giving me a Easee home charger 2 car will be the Etec megan iconic both it seems are not compatable

                                  They do offer a higher tarriff but no point as my milage is only 6500

                                  [Intelligent Octopus isn’t ready for you yet, but it just got one step closer.
                                  You do not have a car or charger that is ready for Intelligent Octopus yet
                                  We’re adding more cars and chargers as quickly as we can, and you’ve just added another vote for your make and model. If you’d like an invite as soon as Intelligent Octopus is ready for you, please enter your email address below.}

                                  So imo best to check before you change over

                                      if you choose

                                      Best to set up a motorbility online account imo that way there will be no need to take the award letter to the dealer plus there are many other benefits in doing so

                                        Its a shame for consumers

                                        VW main woes imo and that of many others are not chinese related as VW want us to believe its simply down to poor/deaf managment/cheap design/huge tech flaws and again just like their diesel scam they are trying to take customers for fools in a desperate attempt to repay its huge $192 billion debts

                                        At least their 1st at something..first among the world’s most indebted companies.

                                        Looks like Audi has confidence in the chinese and want to partner with them ( foolish imo

                                        The whole chinese economy is and has for a long time been a wobbly stack of cards that will fall, when? who knows but when it does it will rock the world )

                                                    The tainted brands attempt to rip of customers with cheap looking ill thought out Evs has backfired

                                                    The master plan of lowering quality its aim to recoup the billions paid in compensation has failed

                                                    Worldwide, VW has paid out £26 billion in both fines and compensation. More than 91,000 claimants received a share of £193 million in compensation in the UK, equating to around £2,100 per VW diesel claim.

                                                    VW is in constant denial of its faults

                                                    That may well imo turn out to be their biggest fault ever
