  1. Was going to join you.

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I've been an owner for almost a year. Had my car serviced at Bellingers in June. I mentioned about the Didcot one listed as being able to service the Ampera and the service manager said the website is a load of cobblers in that regard. I don't really expect a web chat "consultant" to know much...
  2. Broken door stay

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Aha! Photo this time.
  3. Broken door stay

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    At least I think it's called a door stay.... So, thanks to hurricane Bernard, the door got caught in a gust of wind and opened too far. I took a closer look and discovered the stay cracked open, as you can see in the photo. Now it clicks when opening. Does anyone know anything about these...
  4. Does your Ampera creep or crawl without pressing the accelerator pedal?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I'm 99% sure all autos do that, don't they? Even going back to the 70s, my parent's Merc used to do that.
  5. Ampera spotting

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    2 spotted within 2 hours!! 815am - white 12 plate in Cowley, Oxford. 10am - silver 12 plate in Begbroke, just outside Oxford. We're taking over the 'shire.
  6. KW used per charge.

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Exactly the same as many/most of the ICEs I've had, e.g. 300 miles to half tank, then 100 to empty.
  7. Ampera spotting

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Merry Xmas to the red 13 plate Amp driving round the M25 near J20 this evening
  8. Project EV charger app?

    General Charging Discussion
    Not wishing to turn this into an IT support session... but the steps I took were : In the app, put the charger into AP mode. Connect the laptop to the AP. Assign a static 192.168.1.x address on my laptop. Ping the 192.168.1.1 address - OK. Even log on to the AP successfully. Ping 192.168.1.5...
  9. Home Charger Installation - my experience.

    General Charging Discussion
    I got mine fitted last week by SmartHomeCharge. All in all, good service. From start to end the process took 5 weeks. They were always prompt to respond to queries via email, and the manager even called me to discuss my queries regarding the install process. Thumbs up.
  10. Project EV charger app?

    General Charging Discussion
    I got mine fitted last week. Seems fine, except for the app. How do you input your charging tariff/costs in the app? I ask because I've had no success of connecting to it via the web interface of 192.168.1.5.
  11. Screens dim

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Mine does this at dusk or driving through shady areas, so I reckon it's the sensor sensing it's dark enough to switch on the lights and dim the display.
  12. Does this happen?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I think at 88mph the flux something switches on...
  13. Improving light beam performance

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    The ones I got were from Hids4U, the Stealth-X 35W kit. They work great, but I'll not give 10 out of 10 until I get the dust caps sorted this week.
  14. Full tank of fuel

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Approx 320 for me. It's still a GOM thought isn't it?
  15. Ampera spotting

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    2 in 2 days! White Ampera going through Adderbury into Banbury.
  16. Ampera spotting

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Red 63 Ampera on A34 northbound near Oxford.
  17. Improving light beam performance

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I fitted some LEDs last month, a few days ago I got the "Park Assist Off" warning. Like yours, it goes away when I turn off the lights. Has anyone fitted HIDs and got the message too? Or does it only affect LEDs?
  18. Intro and thanks from new Ampera owner

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Mine does exactly this. MY12 model. The only way I know is to go thru the menus where there is an option to tun off the screen. Major faff, so I never do it.
  19. Lowest priced Ampera so far?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    It was. I think it was supposed to be in Banbury, or Bicester, I forgot.
  20. Bad experience with ChargedEV ?

    General Charging Discussion
    They messed me around no end, I chased and chased and they promised and promised. Then I stropped on the Charged EV section on this site and the guy got someone from customer services to email back, which led to... not much. So I stropped again and asked for a refund which got processed in 10...
