    Filled the tank with V-Power and looking forward to exploring the suspension and steering upgrades :thumb:

    The red RC was a lovely colour, but I can't see the images of the new one.

    Many subtle differences.. Stays on electric longer and faster, must be programming 'cos the spec is the same. Somehow they have made even quieter inside!! Ride has greater compliance, without loosing control in corners. Apparently the AVS (automatically variable suspension) now has 300 steps of adjustment (up from 9). Discovering new stuff each drive. It's already meeting it's declared Fuel Combined WLTP mpg of 45 around town..

    Yes, quite surreal especially at night.
    I actually opted for the upgraded sound system (Mark Levinson) because the car's so quiet I thought it might actually be worth it and my word they've done a great job tailoring the system to the car (2000hrs of sound testing in the car by ML engineers, apparently)
