Re: 3 SIM card on offer at Amazon £35

I also got one during the offer. Come March and the vodafone timed out, just swopped the 3 SIM in and it worked with no further effort.

Re: Battery charge status in app

That's crazy! What if you were a luddite without a smart phone? The phone app should be an add on to the car not mandatory.

Re: Care Key

I had this in march when I had my care key programmed. They were asking £50 plus vat, BUT only mentioned this when I came for collection. When I'd booked it in and when I took it in in the morning there was no talk of cost, so I argued if it was chargeable they should have told me up front. Service ...

Re: XC40 FWD review

I don't see why just driving the front wheels would affect the ability to brake regeneratively. You're basically just applying a load against the wheel rotation, rather than applying drive to create wheel rotation. Yes it will be front biased, but then regenerative braking on many ICE vehicles is fr...

Re: Driver's Seat Heater Fuse Location?

Re: B4P fuel use in Eco mode
