    My overnight was from Donald’s of BSE but I’m pretty sure it’s only for their customers who have a deposit /order with them, otherwise it’s escorted test drives. My contact was Alex, on: 01284 723336 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Test Drive Completed

    Kia Niro
    Oh dear! I was due another overnight test drive today and have now cancelled it along with the car. The reasons are as follows: • The back-ache • The colour • Problems others have had • Kia • Value for money I’d be lying if I said differently but spending this amount on a Kia for me is...

    Finally managed to fit in my overnight test drive and my thoughts are as follows: The car is fantastic compared to my 14 plate Leaf and all the toys to play with are almost overwhelming. That said; I covered about 120 miles in total and had both ‘back and butt ache’ that I feel might be an...

  15. Changing type1 to type 2 on home charger..

    Kia Niro
    In preparation for my eventual delivery I want to change my home charge cable on my ChargeMaster wall box from type1 to type2. Has anyone done this and if so were there any issues? Is the new charge lead readily available or is it best to just change the connector and keep the lead? Any...
