    Tesla New Battery Technology

    If its true and cost effective its one hurdle overcome. I wonder what the charging time is though.

    Whats your strategy for year 2030 / ban of ICE vehicles?

    Indeed but the question really should be who is happy with an overnight stop or at best an hours stop after every sub 300 mile stint of a longer journey. Lots of EV’s struggle to do 200 miles. So unless you use a motorway fast charger in which case your 600 mile journey will have at least three...

    Whats your strategy for year 2030 / ban of ICE vehicles?

    Reading through the last four pages to catch up. Two things strike me; I’ve met MarkJay on a few occasions and know him to be a balanced, fair and intelligent person. I’m sure if anyone felt he was ‘policing’ anything, it was unintentional on his part. I don’t necessarily agree with some of...

    Whats your strategy for year 2030 / ban of ICE vehicles?

    Anyone travelling through Europe on holiday. Coaches with more than one driver etc. I do approx twice per year. Wife and I share the driving. A few years ago I did Geneva and back three times in a week. Couldnt have done this in an EV. Ive yet to see a charging point on a ferry or the chunnel...

    Command ntg 2.5 (Alpine BZ9811)

    Can the seller confirm he was the owner of the donor vehicle? If so get the vin or the registration and I can check if that unit came from that vehicle.

    SLK R171 Retrofit Power Folding Mirrors

    We (comand ) are an independent. We do a load of work for Mercedes dealers aswell as private individuals. We can code it all properly for you. The dimming is a red herring. You dont need that option necessarily to have the folding working. The presence of the option in the instrument cluster...

    Command ntg 2.5 (Alpine BZ9811)

    Sales@comandonline.co.uk can get the code and then enable the unit for you. However, this will be chargeable and a check will be made for theft. Suggest you have a word with the seller about the units provenance.

    W204 Comand Unit Replacement - DIY?

    If its NTG 4.5 then you will need an anti theft pin code. The unit not only needs unlocking it needs to be coded to your car. This is done via Xentry online to Mercedes in Germany.

    New petrol and diesel car sales will be 'banned from 2030'

    Ahh but petrol stations can serve two vehicles simultaneously. One each side. With better positioning of an EV charging point in a car park, it could serve four cars simultaneously. But I guess thats too obvious for the council to think of.

    New petrol and diesel car sales will be 'banned from 2030'

    A car ahead of its time in terms of functionality. Shame it was BL derived.

    Much the same as having your own place to eat, sleep and live. Its kept how you want it, clean and tidy free from ‘others’ bodily fluids, grime, dirt, disease etc. Plus its there, ready to use when you want it.

    Whats your strategy for year 2030 / ban of ICE vehicles?

    1000km is about the same range as a good diesel. Its not so much the stopping, its how long you have to stop for. Plus, park wherever there is a space and you still have the balance of your range. An EV needs more frequent and longer stops at precise places. At present the best EV if driven...

    Stereo replacement for Vito 2016

    Ask yourself what the quality of something like that represents. After taxes, profits for seller, distributor and manufacturer you are possibly getting about £25 worth of parts. If you want something decent then look at Pioneer or Alpine. Something like the Alpine ILX 702 D is a supurb unit...

    Whats your strategy for year 2030 / ban of ICE vehicles?

    I would add that I have no objection to anyone owning one for whatever reasons they choose. If it works for them, then great. It doesnt work for me yet. Maybe it will maybe it wont. What I object to is the ‘vegan’ argument. Great, be a vegan if you want but dont try and force it upon others...

    Whats your strategy for year 2030 / ban of ICE vehicles?

    My objections to them are that they simply are not viable yet, too expensive and in the main(few exceptions) ugly. Once I can replace an ICE car with something comparable in terms of convenience and cost I’ll do it. I like the idea of near zero maintenance.

    Whats your strategy for year 2030 / ban of ICE vehicles?

    Depends on the definition of Caravan. I recall my earlier motorcycling years where learners had big engined bikes because they had what looked like a sprung stabiliser on the bike but was in fact deemed a side car!
