In your view Nigel as you doing a lot of research. Is any one manufacture ahead in the battery race and range offered excluding Tesla

Had a bit of an accident in the GT86 today while reversing the car and graze the rear bumper #-o

I know have parking sensors and camera, but was right on the Blind Spot on the side of the rear bumper :!: :!:

To cap it all got another Parking Fine, but this time in the Multi-Story Car Park because the car wasn't quite within the White Lines, but it is impossible to park another car next to me and the space wasn't even designated for Motorbikes :x

Paid the Fine early so only cost £25.00 instead of £50.00 :!:

The New 64kwh version is reported to have a 236 mile range Azam :twisted:
I missed this reply in the xmas build up! You know better than to believe those figures Nigel. ;)

I've done quite a few miles now in the 41kw Renault Zoe and had the home electrics re-done. Let's have a chat about some aspects of EV life you may not be aware of before deciding on anything. I'll be sure to grab you at the Essex meet.

(Sorry to see the damage to the GT.... what a bummer!)

I will only go Electric when the car is capable to do 320+ miles on a single charge, so as I don't have to charge the car every day :!:

At the moment only Tesla and Jaguar can do this and I can't afford 40k plus on a car when buying it outright as won't be using finance or leasing :!: :!:

There is a lot happening within the next 2 years which is going to be interesting as the other car manufacturers release EV's into the UK :thumleft:

Also the infrastructure will begin to get in place by the time we hit 2021 :P

Apparently I can already put a Supercharger in my Driveway according to Tesla which is sunk in the ground like pop up bollards and detects the car as it approaches the driveway :o

Got the quote to fix the car today :!:

£1,100 inc vat :shock: plus they will loan me a Toyota Courtesy car while my car is being fixed at the Gatwick Body Shop =D>

Rear Bumper - Buff out scuff
Front Top Bumper - Flaked Paint Respray
Drivers Side Panel Flank, Skirt and 2 dings - Respray and Repair

The GT Grey changes colour depending on the light and what direction you look at the car, so adds to the cost #-o

Nigel. Just a thought. Might be worth getting the damage on the boot lid done as well if it's not been done. Their was a a small section with what looked like lacquer damage I noticed at Beaulieu a few years back that the stripe never covered
