  1. Nissan Leaf 40kw - Nissan UK promotion

    Nissan Leaf40
    I did some quotes online and a 3 year deal was cheaper than a 4 year one, with a couple of grand down.
  2. Buying a property with solar already installed?

    Power, Fuel, Alt Energy and Environmental Impact
    We had our house up for a few months before deciding to stay put. We did have someone tell us that the solar panels put them off putting an offer in, I'm guessing some people just don't understand them. Why would something that is generating an income of approx £700-750 per year, and reducing...
  3. 2014 Leaf Tekna front disc size

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Rear discs Front discs Parking brake adjustment I used these as a guide to see if there was anything unusual when changing the discs and pads, I wouldn't recommend anyone working on their brakes unless they know what they are doing. The above videos and links might not be the perfect or the...
  4. Coolant change DIY-able?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I can't see me getting my 2014 24 serviced anymore, Mot'd once a year and then just big repairs/jobs I can't do on the drive.
  5. 2014 Leaf Tekna front disc size

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Here's one of the fronts fitted...
  6. 2014 Leaf Tekna front disc size

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Ended up going for Mintex rear pads, I was going to go for them all round, but they didn't have any fronts, so got some EBC front pads. I went for Mtec discs all around, as you can get an anti-corrosive coating on them so hopefully will keep the rust from lack of use at bay. I'll see what...
  7. 2014 Leaf Tekna front disc size

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    So I've emailed a few people, but anyone else any direction on where to look for front pads for 296mm discs?
  8. 2014 Leaf Tekna front disc size

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Anyone suggestions on where to get front pads for the 296 discs? I'm hoping they aren't a Nissan only part, eurocarparts don't have them using the part number above, and the company I'm getting the discs and rear pads from didn't have the fronts.
  9. 2014 Leaf Tekna front disc size

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Just about to order some new front brake discs and I've discovered that there are 2 different sizes, either 283mm or 296mm. I've had the tape measure out, just with the wheel on, and I think the front discs on mine are 296mm. Can anyone confirm if a 2014 Leaf 24 Tekna is a 296mm front disc...
  10. For Sale 2014 Red Leaf Acenta 24kWh 6.6 kW charger Low Mileage + Solar Spoiler

    Electric Vehicle Classifieds
    I'd be getting on to Westway to have a complain that they've missold me a car! You've got it in black and white that it was sold as a Tekna, but it's an Acenta. You weren't to know, as there are no badges on it, you've probably been paying more than you should for insurance, as you've been...
  11. Pod Point failed and customer support is v bad!

    General Charging Discussion
    Sorry to hear you're having issues with podpoint, i had a problem with mine and was pretty pleased with the service. Tried a few resets which worked temporarily, then it went again a few weeks later, so they sent an engineer out to replace the circuit board whilst I was at work. Took a few days...
  12. leaf door glass scratching on door

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Mine has this, been like it since I got it 2 and a half years ago. Same place. I really should have looked in to it by now, but never bothered.
  13. Tinting rear window

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    It could be worth emailing Windesa and asking them, I can remember them being helpful when I got mine.
  14. Tinting rear window

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    The make we got was Windesa, in Germany. They were for a Dacia Logan, and no UK companies stocked them for the newer model. Just had a look on their site and they don't list any blinds for the Ampera. Just had a look and UV Privacy Car Shades Set of 6 Vauxhall Ampera 5dr 11-15 - Vanstyle have...
  15. Tinting rear window

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    The tailored ones fit the shape of the window so no gaps. They aren't the generic ones that use suckers to attach to the windows.
  16. Tinting rear window

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I've got some on my partners car, I'll have a look at the make when she's home and let you know. We went with them over other shades, as they were a one piece rear shade, rather than a two piece which would have a line obscuring the visibility. Really good fit, exact shape of the window, so...
  17. Tinting rear window

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    You could always go for tailored sun shades that clip on to the inside of the windows.
  18. what saves the most CO2: solar, EV or heatpump?

    General EV Discussion
    I was on one of those carbon footprint calculators the other day and it came out at 12.5 tonnes for the year (obviously a rough guesstimate), then I redid it taking out the two return flights from the holidays this year and it went down to 7.5 tonnes. Definitely the flights had the biggest cost.
  19. MG eZS is here... Ish

    ZS EV
    The problem with a lot of car sales people (sorry, but I'm only basing this on my experience in car sales 10 years ago) is that the sales executives aren't that interested in cars. Their interest is selling a car and getting it delivered ASAP so that they can get their commission. I can...
  20. Insurance nightmare, and Renault Zoe Leased Battery

    Renault ZOE
    That's the thing, it doesn't matter what the OP's insurance cover is, the third party has admitted fault and it is going through their insurance. Therefore the third party's insurer should be putting the OP back to the situation/state they were in pre-accident, not putting them £2.5k out of...
