Re: Servicing

Anyone had their Born serviced lately, and if so what were they charged? Ours is approaching 2 years old and we've been quoted £175 from Cupra Pulman at Sunderland. That doesn't include the pollen filter. They also said brake fluid and aircon services were optional extras, I would not be taking the...

Re: Is the issued charging cable under warranty?

Should do, unless it has any physically evident signs of misuse/accidental damage.

Re: Cupra Breakdown Cover - how long?

2 years for Cupra cars, 3 years for Audis and 1 year for Skodas and VWs (except Touareg - 3 years), which reminds me, our Born is approaching 2 years old!

Re: BMW 130i to Born

Hi I think the heatpump has been demonstrated ro be pointless. This is a heavy car so it doesn't handle like a 1-series. So pure acceleration is not a good measure. The touchscreen is much less friendly than the 1 series joystick thingy. That's the biggest downside in doing long trips (over 150 mil...

Re: BMW 130i to Born

I think the heatpump has been demonstrated ro be pointless. By whom? Many tests by YouTubers which showed that even in really cold temperatures it hardly made a difference, certainly not worth the 1K cost. Here's one example (it's the ID.3 but the Born would be identical): https://www.youtube.com/w...

Re: Dash cam install in minutes

Hi all, We are collecting a v1 for the wife next week. I will be fitting a front dashcam afterwards. Can I just confirm - is the yellow 20a fuse the only switched live in there? I would rather piggyback on a fuse with a lower amp rating….anybody know of any? Most of them are switched live, the yell...

Re: Dash cam install in minutes

I haven't checked what you have already plugged in - presume it's a switched live? Permanent live can be had from the 12v socket fuse. See that bright yellow 20A fuse right where your red wire starts? There's a prong hole below as the fuse can fit in 2 positions. It's currently plugged via prong hol...

Re: Given up on tech but like the car

Had mine 10 months and the camera packed up this week, not had any other issues really. I’m looking for a second EV (4x4) but this time I’ll be looking harder at the tech side, as I said I’ve not had any issues but at the same time I find the system is over the top, Our rear camera died after 16 mo...
