  1. Charging with only on-street parking - Oxford Go Ultra Low Trials

    General Charging Discussion
    I’m guessing something along the lines of spaces made for disabled drivers. The cost for infrastructure to have charge points locally as opposed to “private EV” spaces for home charging would be significant to make allowances here. As a PHEV driver I’m already exempt from paying for an annual...
  2. On Street Charging

    General Charging Discussion
    This looks promising and hope other councils follow suit. There is mention of low tech solutions such as cable gullies but I've never come across them or have heard of anyone having one installed. If people know otherwise I'd be highly interested as our pavements are due to be replaced in the...
  3. On Street Charging

    General Charging Discussion
    *sigh* and now get ready for the ridiculous charging costs they'll start rolling out. No benefit to own an EV in London unless you are lucky enough to own a driveway or they come up with a way to accommodate those without offstreet parking.
  4. Charging/parking in West London?

    General Charging Discussion
    Park on the Westminster border for free and get the tube to wherever you need to go to. Just be wary of the time restrictions but if it's an evening concert you'll probably be outside of the restriction hours (normally 8:30am to 6:30pm with stays usually between 2-4 hours). So you might be able...
  5. New Source London tariff

    General Charging Discussion
    I always knew that free charging would come to an end but didn't expect to have to pay £5 (0.64p/kWh for 3.3kW charger) + subs to travel 25mi in my PHEV (about twice the cost of petrol in the summer and 3-4x in winter :() I tend to drive into central London once or twice a week for childcare...
  6. On Street Charging

    General Charging Discussion
    Opma32 - Since it's private land I'd suggest raising this with the home owners association. If they are a fair bunch I'm sure they would be open to installing a charge point and you might qualify for one of those subsidies. If you are lucky some other people in the association might chip in if...
  7. MMI Connect App .........is this a joke?

    Audi A3 e-tron
    I've lost all functionality since Friday with no charging or car data appearing in the MMI app. I'm going to give it until the end of the week before I raise a query.
  8. Cruise Control and other issues

    Audi A3 e-tron
    No issues here and use it regularly in both low speed (stop start) conditions as well as motorway driving. In actual fact, I was travelling back home last night and hit the M25 at around 7:30pm and couldn't believe how busy it was. Engaging the ACC allowed me to relax a little and not have to...
  9. servicing

    Audi A3 e-tron
    I was told that I couldn't change to a variable service due to the "special e-tron design". Frankly I'm calling BS as the service lady said that I couldn't even update my MMI maps online and wanted to charge £300+ for it. I subsequently found the links and downloaded it :p Which dealers are...
  10. On Street Charging

    General Charging Discussion
    I wish someone would come up with a cable channel that could be installed (at the owners cost) to allow for this, or at least a solution that would be approved by councils/government.
  11. On Street Charging

    General Charging Discussion
    As mentioned, I tend not use it during the day and only early evening when all the kids have gone to bed (+my footfall is very minimal) I have a security camera outside that monitors my entry way but also catches people walking by and typically have 3-4 in an hour. Maybe you could fashion...
  12. On Street Charging

    General Charging Discussion
    I have this and use it about once or twice a week as I can often charge at work. Also serves as a cover to prevent people tripping over the hose pipe and other cables when I'm cleaning the car :cool: Pedestrian Cable Cover Also this is what the Highways Act says...
  13. Bill Plant goes e-tron

    Audi A3 e-tron
    This is very odd indeed. I learnt to drive in an Austin Metro with a choke (I remember after a long motorway drive I'd have to 1/2 choke to stop the engine cutting out!) and each subsequent car I've owned or been allowed to drive has always had an extra feature, be it intermittent wipers or...
  14. Car Car

    Audi A3 e-tron
    I had the same letter and completed the request online. On the service side of things, I've booked mine in for a 1 hour £213 oil change but queried whether the service interval could be increased due to my relatively low annual mileage (~6000mi) and the response was "no" as it required more...
  15. Home Charging - Row garage

    Tesla Model X
    Time for us Londoners to trade up, move to Plymouth and commute into London. Some of us might have plenty of spare capital to buy a fleet of Teslas to park on our driveways and keep in our garages ;)
  16. Home Charging - Row garage

    Tesla Model X
    I don't have off street parking and rely on an alley and long commando lead to charge my car for the past 12 months and all has gone well (although I can always fall back to the ICE if I run out of electron-juice). I have also been in contact with my local council and MP for solutions and they...
  17. Fed up with etron app.

    Audi A3 e-tron
    iOS seems marginally better as I no longer need to wait 10-15 seconds for the keypad presses to register the initial key code. Haven't tried any timers as I don't use them.
  18. 0-100KM time 6.6 seconds

    Audi A3 e-tron
    I've read similar posts on the Golf GTE forums. I presume you tried this out in sport mode as others have suggested you need to put the VW in GTE mode, which I guess is the same. Either way it's pretty impressive but I'm always taken back by the 0-city driving speed :)
  19. servicing

    Audi A3 e-tron
    So what is variable servicing? My "oil" change reminder has come up exactly a year in but I've only done 5k miles of which 85% is EV. Fortunately there are two Audi-EV dealers near me who can do a service so might play one off the other :)
  20. Pitting/marks on privacy glass

    Audi A3 e-tron
    Got to take it in for a service in the next month or so and will raise the question about this then. I'm pretty sure it's not a film and slightly annoyed that it's showing its age after a year. As for paint damage, I've got a few small dints that are probably from stones and a very small...
