I wonder if the Zoe would get so much negativity if it had an internal combustion engine under the bonnet!? After all, it's really only a clio with different panels on, and I haven't seen any threads slating those recently!?
Who's worried about residuals though!? I'm not! Cheep car for three years, let Renault take the hit on value, and hand the key back!!! But I still wouldn't touch another Merc!! But that's just my opinion! Plus a £28k golf including the £5k government grant is a whole wedge more than a £12k Zoe...
As said, very strange post, with I assume no personal experience of the cars!? If we could all afford a Tesla don't you think we'd consider buying one!? Personally, with the Merc experience I've had, I wouldn't touch another one with a barge pole!
Bang on for boost! Just needs the fueling and timing sorted for the additional airflow! Paul at EC will sort you out for that! Mine was 365g/s when all sorted with the pulley, map and SL intakes but also over boosted quite regularly!
