Re: Writing a Python library and Android app for the I-Pace. Need help.

Is this really likely to be feasible? I'd have guessed (or at least hoped) that some fairly heavy-duty authentication was being used between app and car. Otherwise hackers could get up to all sorts of mischief.

Re: Were you happy with your trade-in price?

Has anyone else experienced this or is that the hidden cost of moving to a new EV model? No hidden cost at all, I would have thought. You haven't supplied too much detail, but at a guess JLR don't need to discount the I-Pace at all at present while there's a significant implied discount on the SQ5....

Re: How well do the LED Matrix headlights work for you

This is just a thought, but is it possible that the Merc S headlights are TOO bright. Too bright in the sense that they risk dazzling other road users, even despite the autodimming etc? Car headlights seem to have been getting brighter and brighter and brighter over the years to the point where ther...

Re: data sim utilisation

Installing a personal sim is not required, so it would be unlikely that OTA updates are done via personal sim. Though it's not impossible that there's a bug in the firmware that allows/causes the personal SIM to be used for default processes if one is installed . (Not saying that this is the case, ...

Re: I-Pace range

JLR seem to be pretty unhelpful in clarifying why the usual don't-routinely-charge-to-100% EV advice might not apply to the I-Pace. But assuming that the usual advice DOES apply then equally there seems to be no problem with charging to 100% sometimes. So the policy is more: charge to a max of eg 80...

Re: I-Pace range

Interesting article "Your mileage may vary: This is how the range of electric cars is tested" Maybe it could have been a good article but there seem to be some glaring errors like the I-Pace EPA range is I think actually 236 miles and not the 336 miles quoted. That's not just a typo, much of the ar...

And another interestingly different type of review (more so after the first 5 minutes or so, once the drive starts):

Re: My new (to me) used FE I Pace

Interesting. There seem to be 2 or 3 of us here with Macans currently (mine's an SD) who are wavering about whether to jump for an I-Pace or not. Be helpful to hear any more detailed thoughts on Macan vs I-Pace.

Re: Protests - France vs UK

Meantime, nuclear fusion, the only hope for large scale green energy in the future, has recently had a big boost (ha ha) from the UK government - £84M - about 20% of the recently announced fund to repair potholes. Further OT, but there is quite a lot of private equity these days in fusion research....
