      Hopefully all goes well for you on Monday 🙂

       

      I’m going to be in surge protection patrol 🙂

      ARE YOU FITTING ONE??? WHERE ARE YOU PUTTING IT?? NOT INSIDE  THE METER BOX I HOPE??!!

       

      And so on. Should be fun.

          Yes, Ascent Energy Services were contracted to do mine but they sub contracted it out to a local company called Power & Data Networks. They made a good job & Ascent were good in keeping me informed!

          thank you xx

            Had an email this morning confirming my installation is going ahead on Monday. Apparently it’s being fitted by a company called Ascent Energy Services. Anyone had any dealings with them ? Good/bad? @kezo

              I don’t have an EV but even my ICE shares my location data and monitors the vehicle by default. I do have the option of switching both services off but can’t really see the point. If they want to snoop on my rather tedious, boring life let them have at it. If I had something to hide however…..

               

              it’s interesting this viewpoint about not having things to hide etc. just a reminder going to the park was made illegal in the not too distant past.

                Motability orders are still the old trim and you can still order them as factory options. I’m getting the id5 style pro as the updated new match pro loses heated seats and panoramic roof. I don’t think we can currently order the new match pro finish so that might actually be a win/win for you if you want the pano roof

                  @des that’s stunning too. @doughnut I know what you mean about dark grey but I did have a silver Audi a3 that always looked sparkly even when mucky.  I’m hoping my moonstone grey Id5 does the same. I do like the way the moonstone looks sort of flat and futuristic we’ll see. If there had been a green or teal like @markymate or @des car in the Id range id have ordered that and waited as it was I wasn’t fussed enough about the VW colours ( or indeed Audi) to wait months for a factory order over stock availability. Cars great though so I’m excited.

                    That green is beautiful @markymate

                    Will be honest, when we first saw it online it didn’t take our fancy, but when we walked into the showroom and saw it in the flesh, it was like, WOW, what a great colour. And like @Ele said, some colours just suit a particular car. We added the black roof as we thought it brought out the green more. Just have to endure the wait now!!

                     

                    I’m not massively fussed about most car colours as they all seem to be a bit dull but THAT is a thing of beauty @markymate. Green is my favourite colour and that shade just looks stunning.

                      Sat in one today,and had the same problem i had getting in the Ford Explorer,not enough room from base of steering wheel to floor (if the Enyak had a flat bottomed steering wheel) it would have made a difference, as it is with EV’s and the higher floor pans my left knee jams under the steering wheel,when i am getting in. Got to listen to the sound system and it’s not as punchy as the Bose system in my Kuga. The boot floor is not level with tailgate entry,seemed about 50mm drop. Suppose these things only show up by actually visiting a car in person. Ive not ruled it out yet tho,but the salesman said 4 months wait if ordered today.

                      there’s a flat bottom to the steering wheel in my id5

                            I seem to mostly choose silver. My husband always chooses black ( which I tend to have to take to the car wash for him as it gets so mucky). Silver hides a lot of sins. My next car is id5 moonstone grey which looks like a flat silver to my eyes. Stock order had grenadilla black, moonstone grey or red to pick from. IF I’d have gone down a factory order I’d have probably picked blue azul as it looks like it’s the sort of colour to still hide dirt ( there’s a theme here). Like @des I’m more about interior and for whatever reason the id5 felt much more light and spacious compared to the id4 madness really when you compare dimensions but it made me smile so that’s the car for me.

                              @nas89 I chose a car from stock two weeks ago. There were two moonstone grey cars  a grenadilla black and a red that was an extra payment. I chose a grey.

                                  @Ele thank you for this it’s made me realise I need to rethink where my charger is going ahead of our install next Monday. @kezo superb as always thanks I’ll make sure surge protection is placed correctly.

                                    @phaedra my husband had the same issue in the ariya. It was very odd as it certainly looked initially like it’d be big enough but it was properly squashed in there for him. @sagwala123 I absolutely loved the xtrail and if I hadn’t got a massive bee in my bonnet about going full EV this time I would have definitely ordered it.

                                      I’ve ordered an ID5 which are all body colour plus black roofs. I’ve gone moonstone grey / black roof as it was a stock car but if that changes to factory I’ll go azul blue / black roof

                                        so they were trying the ‘your a poor, thick woman crap’. as you say, how you managed for 3 years is anyone’s guess. almost the last bastion of males… bmw near here has woman sales boss..

                                        absolutely . It’s a 3 garage family owned dealer that used to have a Mitsubishi contract so it’s where I have to take it for service. When I picked the car up from new there before I entered my pin I checked the car over. I asked where the bonnet pop was so I could check the engine. He said “why you’re motability you’ll never need to look in there love”

                                        Silly me not realising motability cars never need washer fluid. Love.

                                          This might give you a clue keso. Audio has been important to me, but I realised that I don’t actually have the music blasting out like I used to, as I need to concentrate more on driving as I get older. So I did some browsing and found some equaliser settings to max the audio in this particular car, and to my surprise it sounded surprisingly good. It won’t blow your “bass” socks off but it it’s sufficiently clear and bright in the mid and treble ranges, and produces an acceptable but light bass bottom end. When I park up in my favourite view point spots this summer, I might plug in my Megaboom to blow some cobwebs away!

                                           

                                          thats how I felt in my ID5

                                            I’ve just had a similar experience getting my Mitsubishi outlander serviced and MOT’d. It went in fine came out with a fuel service warning light and a glitchy media system. I took it back in and they said it was my fault ( love) you didn’t screw the petrol cap on properly ( love). I pointed out I’d had the car three years and I last filled up 3 weeks ago ( it drives mainly on electric). Apparently they have no need to touch my petrol cap ( love) roll eyes ‘motability’ roll eyes.
                                            So it was definitely silly old girly me and not their f£££ing firmware /software updates. No word on why my silliness caused the media glitch.

                                            love.

                                             

                                            This garage now does Suzuki ora and jeep following the Mitsubishi departure. Needless to say those cars are firmly off my radar. Love.

                                              @kezo that’s brilliant thank you. Now I’ve got to persuade Mr KJ35 to clear all his rubbish out of the garage so they can access it 🙂

                                                Does anyone know if the wiring for these chargers goes externally or internally? Would look a bit of a mess externally at my house, internally would be in a garage wall so not so bad.

                                                In relation to your garage, where is your meter/consumer unit

                                                incoming and main fuse box are in the utility room / outside the main utility room which is immediately behind the garage. The garage is integral.
