Re: Software over the air

Has anyone had issues with the update getting “stuck”. Mine has been saying it is downloading the software for 3 days but this is as far as I’ve got. I’ve tried connecting to my onboard SIM card, using my iPhone as a hotspot to use its data tariff (during a long journey to the south coast) and also ...

First Birthday

I have now had my XE Portfolio for a year and have to say it’s been flawless. No issues or problems (apart from some frustrations with Pro) to report. I’ve only done 7,000 miles so far but have to say I’m loving it. I went from a manual 163 Prestige to an automatic 180 AWD Portfolio and don’t regret...

Re: Someone tried to steal my XE last night

This is the first time I have seen a report of an XE being stolen locally. It must have been a horrible experience.

Re: Smart Motorways (Again)

We are told smart motorways are safe, but seeing stories like this are not helping to convince anyone. https://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/news/derby-news/lorry-ploughs-back-broken-down-3327201 I thought the idea was that in the event of a breakdown or problem the lane would be closed off, which seems ...

EV Rescue

Could the truck have been any more disproportionate? The poor elderly gent’s mobility scooter ran out of battery and this is what rescued him.

Re: Sharing the Roads

I was appalled to see the story yesterday of a cyclist going through a red light and nearly colliding with a pedestrian. The cyclist then stopped, got off his bike and went back. To apologise I hear you ask. Not one bit of it - to swap verbal pleasantries with the guy he had narrowly avoided and the...

Dealer Marketing Tools

When we collect our bright, shiny cars (either new or pre-loved) from dealers they give us items with their branding on, such as umbrellas or cuddly toys. Would it not make sense for new owners of keyless entry vehicles to be given 2 Faraday pouches (with their branding on) and an explanation of the...

Re: Stripped for Parts

You can just imagine the conversation with the police “It was working fine when I parked it!”.

Re: Someone tried to steal my XE last night

I have got into the habit of checking our pouch weekly. As they are sold in packs of 2 I now keep a spare in the drawer ready for when it is needed, which I will then replace with another pack of two. It seems that they start to fail when they are regularly opened and closed - the original that has ...
