Spring is here, and hopefully summer is coming, so its time to remove the winter tyres and put on the summer ones. When I ordered my Model 3, I didn’t order any winter tyres so in October I bought 18″ winter tyres and had them mounted on the standard Aero rims from Tesla. The original… Continue reading The New Aero
After collecting our Model 3 from the ceramic coating company, we named the car Trillian, so rather than saying Model 3 overtime I will say Trillian. Our first trip was to got West France, between Le Mans and Tours where my inlays live. This was a follow on to our trip in June as my… Continue reading First long trip in the Model 3
It’s been a long time since the last update and a lot has happened. However due to the pandemic and lockdown, nothing has also happened…. So where to start ? Back in June we had to goto France in the Ioniq Electric. I detailed the trip a couple of post ago, so I won’t repeat… Continue reading EV Upgrade
We are trying to sell our Ioniq Electric. After our last trip to France, and the issues with CCS charging, we decided we had had enough of looking for a charging place every 150 km or so. So it has to go. In a way I will be sad to see it go. It’s a… Continue reading Time to say goodbye
Due to family illness we need to goto France to sort out some health related issues with my wife mother. The trip has taken a month to arrange after we were told by the social services that we had to go for a meeting, most of that time was to get permissions sorted out. At… Continue reading France trip during Covid-19
Well in a word, nothing. Since the end of 2018 I have been long term sick and my health insurance would not allow me to travel. So apart from a couple of short day trips our Ioniq has hardly been used. The last trip we made was for a week to Pisa in January 2019… Continue reading So what happened to the Portugal trip?
For our Sumer holidays this year we were torn between going to south Italy or to attempt to get to Portugal. So of course I started to investigate getting an access card for the Spanish and Portuguese charging network. Spain was relatively easy. Just get the IBIL & Easy Charger apps, and make an account.… Continue reading A charge card for Portugal
Although my Ioniq is only 18 months or so old, I have been thinking for some time about what comes next. Originally I was thinking a Tesla Model 3 or maybe a Kona. However, a car I have been following for a while looks extremely interesting, and that’s the Byton M-Byte. I don’t know the… Continue reading Future EV ?
Due to illness I haven’t updated the blog for a while, or for that matter driven very much. So what’s been going on with the Ioniq ? In January we drove to Pisa for a week. We left very early int he morning and reached Pisa y early evening. The trip was a bit of… Continue reading 2019 the first few months
It is now almost a year since we bought the Ioniq, and its time for its 30,000Km service. Actually it’s a few Km early, but I needed to get the winter tyres fitted so it made sense to do both at once. The cost breakdown is as follows: €89.00 – 30,000 Km inspection. €25.00 –… Continue reading 30,000Km Service and costs over the year.
