Ha, can anyone tell me which part of the car actually has real leather? It all looks pretty fake to me. I would have much preferred velour style fabric seats myself.Can you use standard leather conditioner/cleaner on the seats (4+) given the spec. makes mention of ‘some faux leather’ content ? Thanks
You can turn the wireless charger off which would remove any possibility of deprogramming the garage key.Another question. I have a motorised garage door with a key that operates by wireless.
In the Niro, there is a wireless phone slot. If the garage key is put in there, is it likely to be deprogrammed by being in the wireless charging hole?
1. Afraid so -- default is OFF and no option to alter that.Picked up the 4+ yesterday; like it a lot (as does SWMBO) but I'm finding a number of minor irritations. I know about the LKA needing to be switched off every time the car is started courtesy of this forum, but here are a few other questions.
1. Does AutoHold have to be switched on every time the car is started (that's what's happening at the mo) or is there an option somewhere in the infotainment system to make it stay on. Once switched ON, it used to stay on in my now, part exchanged, VW Golf GTE. I would really like that to be the case in the 4+
2. Went for a little play this morning. When my wife drove, the satnav showed speed symbols as we drove from 30mph zone into 40mph. Back at home, we swapped over, obviously turning the car fully off. On my little play, no speed signs appeared on the satnav. Is there an obvious reason for this? We didn't change any settings, as far as we know.
3. I thought the 4+ satnav maps showed speed cameras. We deliberately drove past one but got no indication on the maps. Again, have I missed a setting somewhere?
Very grateful for any help with these.
I get warning bongs on approach to every speed camera I've been past so far - but only if it's in the correct direction of travel to be a "threat". This includes the average speed camera locations on the M27. No setting required.3. I thought the 4+ satnav maps showed speed cameras.

o problem with 4 hours charge
Thank you very much. That is very useful. What if driving a bit slower, do you think I can do a round trip of about 190miles? I was hoping to charge it mainly at work rather than at home.I think you might be pushing it for 186 miles of M way in the worst of winter without charging but it would be no problem with 4 hours charge during the day, assuming a 7kWh charger.
I’ve been charging mainly to 80% and the lowest I’ve seen at that is around 220 miles but the car’s mostly used on A and B roads with a little D/C. From what I’ve seen prolonged 70mph does hit the range quite hard.
Excellent. What about normal condition, do you think 190 miles is possible?In the very worst of conditions I think you might be at the very upper limits of what you can achieve. That would need you to achieve under 3 miles per kWh. You might have to slow down a tiny bit if you intend not to charge during the day.
Four hours of work time charging will give you about 40% of your battery back, assuming a 7kW charger. Which should make the return entirely comfortable.
Cost to charge will depend on the cost of your electricity . Octopus Go gives you four hours at 5p/kWh, which as per your work charging about 40%. That is about £1.40.
We have charging stations. I just need to give the building management team a call tomorrow and ask how it works and how much it costs. Someone mentioned that we should not use it for longer than 4 hours. I was hoping to get a full charge in 4 hours but it sounds like that might not be the caseCan you charge at the office?
