Hello From Bedfordshire

Post by eyepace » Fri Nov 22, 2019 7:23 pm

Went into the dealer to get a price on a new HSE and came away ordering their Demonstrator FE! I pick it up next Friday so cant wait!! Thanks to everyone for sharing on this forum I feel more confident than I would have but know the learning curve will be steep. Must get a charge point installed at home soon as I thought I would have 4 months to sort that out.

I will be wary of the 12v battery issues that people have had and I think I will keep a second clunker car going, as repairs if needed seem to take a long time. I have my polar instant account set up now.

Praying for a trouble free experience. Shame I could not make the meet recently but family commitments made it impossible and I would have just walked around with envy at that point anyway.

For me it is only 7 sleeps now till Santa brings me a present!! :D

Welcome to this forum eyepace . Regarding the 12v battery anxiety I recommend that you download the WattCat app ( Android only ) by contacting ardevd and use it as an early warning system since this app will provide you in real-time the status of the battery . When the app figure is under 12V you are in trouble . I received my car a year ago and never got any issue with the 12 V battery

Don't think you need invites now, that was the point of moving into Beta from Private access previously.

I didn't need an invite. I just searched for it and there it was available for download.
