  1. Nissan Leaf 2014 24kw - Gear stick surround

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Morning, Before I say anything... this is my first post, I’m awaiting delivery of my 2014 Leaf 24kw, and I’m not some crazy car modder with the need to rebuild every car I ever buy. But... the car I’m getting is black. The seats are black. The interior is black. Except the gear stick surround...

    General EV Discussion
    My aging Nissan Qashqai diesel SUV is getting to the end of it's useful life. I love it - it gets me to and from work daily for a week on a single tank (about 600 miles), and allows me to cross the country to meet suppliers, customers and clients. As a contractor the reliability, and the...

    I live on an island where there is little or no street lighting and single track roads. Last night I had to reverse to allow another car to pass me. This experience wasn't good because I could hardle see anything to my rear because the reversing light is only on the nearside and the strength...
  5. Replacement Tyres .. nightmare

    Volkswagen Passat GTE
    So my lease GTE Advance is close to need new front tyres. I've just passed 20k and expect perhaps another 1k before I hit the tread depth markers. As it's notoriously difficult to get any sensible quality tyres agreed by the lease company, anyone have any luck on getting what they want? I...

  7. How do you change headlight bulbs on Leaf 24 Acenta?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Never had to change a headlight bulb before. Halfords said they charge £8 per light, so £16 just for left and right headlights to be changed + cost of bulbs. Rip off? There does not seem to be any internet guides or youtube videos out there (not that I can find anyway). With a spanner I took...

  9. Replacement key cost — eek!

    General Groupe PSA EV Discussion
    We've got a Citroen C-Zero and we've managed to damage the casing of the remote key fob; still got all the bits, just need a new housing for them. Turns out they don't seem to assist online, so I called at the Citroen dealer today, who wanted... wait for it... £196. That price doesn't include...
