Re: Pics of pre MY21 with R Design badge on boot?

I know not everyone's a badge fan but I like them. The R Design boot badge was dropped I think and certainly our MY22 doesn't have one. I sourced one off that auction site but it's in a clear rhumboid shape as per the pic, and with a mount effect, whereas from what I can see the OEM was no mount an...

Re: Poll: Lead times ( from order till delivery)

It’s hard lockdown in Melbourne, Australia. I called the dealer and put a conditional deposit down. FWIW I have not test driven the car (R Design) yet so this forum has been my eyes and ears. It was meant to be delivered in Feb 2022. Sales guy calls me up after I agree and says the pearl white (wha...

Sorry if this has already been covered but I have a MY21 Inscription Pro and my glovebox is both cooled and lockable.. Yes - was covered before John, by RichardM71.

Re: Range anxiety

pjm007 That makes perfect sense to be fair. As I said in a previous post I am a bit paranoid trying to keep the car in electric mode watching the needle. Bit silly really but hey ho.
