  1. Squeaking Mirror

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Oh I think both sides are on their third wingmirror each - I've just decided I can't be bothered now I have to pay for the repair! I believe there is a hardware module required to enable auto fold on lock/unlock....I'd be interested if it isn't crazy expensive but I'm quite sure it'd be a pain...
  2. Squeaking Mirror

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    My warranty is done now and they're both squeaking and grinding again. Eventually I'll get around to putting some PTFE lube on them - until then I'm really not fussed now that I have to pay for the repair :p Do wish I had properly auto folding ones though :( I wonder if it's retrofittable...
  3. Model 3 issue with a Siemens Rapid using CCS

    Tesla Model 3
    Doubtful, anything faster than 11kW is DC nowadays - the Zoe is just about the only model left that'll do 22kW AC. It's why I think Pod Point are so foolish in their constant pursuit to install 22kW AC instead of DC chargers.
  4. Model 3 issue with a Siemens Rapid using CCS

    Tesla Model 3
    The Type 2 supply can provide 43kW but the car wouldn't be able to take that. Model S and X can take 16kW over AC, I'd have thought the 3 would either be the same - Tesla have their 22kW destination charger network and they surely don't want a bunch of M3's clogging it up!
  5. Pulling to the left but only under acceleration

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    They are four year old rubber parts so I think you'd struggle to claim it's more than wear and tear, but I'm no expert. An indy mechanic should be able to advise if it's expected wear or something looks wrong.
  6. Stop Lock Compatability

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    If you're careful about where you keep your keys I don't think it's really a problem - keep them on the opposite side of the house to the car and you're probably fine, keep them in a tin and you're definitely fine. If you're really that fussed, you can turn off the keyless system anyway...

    General Charging Discussion
    A blue badge is not an entitlement to free parking - it is simply an entitlement to use Disabled parking bays. It just so happens that in many cases the charge is waived for them.
  8. When chargers are on the wrong side of a bay .....

    General Charging Discussion
    Oh, such a classic case of cognitive bias. Plenty of people break speed limits, run red lights, and try to kill cyclists. That doesn’t make their actions right! Call me what you like, I don’t really care. But if you break the rules, however important they might be, you have no right to...

    Microsoft Edge is just as standards-compliant as anything else. I'm sorry, but if your website doesn't work on the browser I choose to use - which is fully up to date and fully supported by it's producer, that's your problem, not mine. Also, there's nothing wrong with advertising - nobody...

    The advertising on this site is actually disgustingly intrusive now. It is literally a textbook of absolutely everything that you shouldn't do on internet advertising. The rule is very simple: you can have ads, but DO NOT let them impact the users experience. By far the worst ones are the...

    Oh, I see! I do apologise then. A lesson for the admins in why it’s a stupid idea to not ask users their thoughts before changing stuff! A modern user experience should not need a user manual or an advice article...

    Perhaps you’d care to elaborate which of the 358 other posts you’d like me to focus on. I didn’t notice anything on the first page that was of interest to me and frankly I have better things to do than read 350 posts that aren’t relevant to the feedback I want to offer...

    Am I the only one that thinks this new interface is frankly hideous? The bulk of the content is hidden and I have no idea what logic is being used to decide what’s presented to me. The cookie settings are ridiculous, as are the ads and the ridiculous amount of wasted space all over the place...
  16. Pedestrian Audio Warning, can I make it louder?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    What's the difference between an EV and an inaudible idling ICE? Modern ICE engines are just as quiet as EVs when you're doing single-digit mph speeds, and as soon as you're in double digits the tyres are making quite a bit of noise already. The only difference is that you can rev in an ICE -...
  17. Pedestrian Audio Warning, can I make it louder?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    That's an interesting thought... I don't know enough about how they work though - isn't there a special mode that hearing loops have to be in to pick up such things (the T-mode?)
  18. Tesla Charging station and adapter

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    You would need to know what the Terms and Conditions Tesla place on the use of their chargers are - I'm not particularly interested because my car is Type 1 so I can't use them. It's not my place to say what might go wrong, all I'm saying is that the standards do not recognise adaptors and...
  19. Pedestrian Audio Warning, can I make it louder?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    The irony of all this is that in urban environments with slow moving traffic, the bulk of newer ICEs are almost completely inaudible above the ambient noise unless accelerating... And if the traffic is moving at any sort of pace, then the VSP turns off and is replaced with the usual tyre roar...
  20. Tesla Charging station and adapter

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    In the standards for Type 1 and Type 2, and in every EV instruction manual I’ve seen where it says not to use any sort of adaptor or extension cable. The only exception is the Tesla CHAdeMo adaptor. You’re welcome to use one if you want to, provided you’re using a charging network that doesn’t...
