What MG really needs (in all models, as an MG driver) is... lumbar support and better software. I would be keeping my car after the novated…

I'm doing tests- I have bursts of crazy non-allergic rhinitis that don't keep me out of work, but testing does help with peace of mind for…

My old Prius was the same, took off like a brick. Did mean I nearly skidded out of the dealer when I picked up the EV cause it was instant…

I have Hisense for fridge (had my side by side for around 6-7 years, no issues), Heire dishwasher (very nice, no issues so far, had it 2…

I have a Navman Minivue in mine- though mine isn't hardwired. Nothing in the rear. I mainly wanted to mention that I wouldn't worry too…

I'd want a couple more studies to confirm this- sponsor bias is potentially high here, especially as Volvo is heavily relying on ICE based…

2 not at fault (if you count claims against others' insurance)- one rear ender and one break in

Had mine for 6 months and I've had range anxiety once, and that was my own dumb fault cause I forgot to switch the isolator on when I…

Yep- at the beginning they ask you your estimated KM/annum and calculate running costs based on that. If you then report the next year that…

Glove box: - window breaker - tiny spanner - penlight - hand sanitiser - spare garage key - body spray and face wipes - ibuprofen Cabin…

Definitely look into Powershop and similar places- if you own an EV you become eligible for super off peak overnight (11c in Vic atm). I…

The NVL or the EV? Cause honestly the EV is less work than the ICE and the NVL is a lot initially then set and forget

This is the rundown for my NVL experience for a ZSEV: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/760061 In terms of owning an EV, the main things…

Kids must be huge there days. My brother and I are tall lanky types and we used to do Melbourne to Brisbane road trips every year in the…

both are 100% doable full EV (gives you some well spaced coffee/lunch breaks too). I spent the morning planning a road trip for myself and…

I had never owned a new car and was looking at either second hand or a hybrid corolla, preferably ex-demo (technically had only had hand me…

Are you renting in a place with a power point in the garage? Could still be viable if you drive under 100kms/day. I'd agree NVL isn't worth…
12/01/2024 - 21:31
Consider full EV- more sustainable if you decide to keep it instead (since 1-2 years feels a little quick to churn a car). I went for a 5…

Honestly, after about a week range anxiety disappears- admittedly I can charge at home, but unless you are doing a long drive, you…

My ZSEV rated 320ish gets 340 routinely with my drives, though mostly flat city/suburban driving on Eco3
10/01/2024 - 09:11
Do you have access to any destination charging (AC type 2 or Granny- is there a normal power point in the car park you can plug in…

I have an LFP (ZSEV) and don't get below 20 often before I charge anyway (it's usually the timing of the distance I have to go or the…

Just be aware that, while a decent comparison, Microsnot is comparing the bottom MG4 to a higher model Dolphin- I'd go up to an MG4 64…

One of my local shopping centers has low emissions carpark (away from the entrance). They don't enforce it and it's basically a twincab…

Or, just maybe, they are near the building cause that's the most accessible power supply?
20/12/2023 - 07:23
I'm in Vic. I was at a nearby shopping center and wanted to plug into the charger (BYO AC, so admittedly less conspicuous than the big DC…

Compared to cash, probably not worth it at that interest rate but is is a good deal for getting the running pre-tax (and remember you pay…

Unless you have a power point in your garage, or have the ability to get a wall charger in the garage (yes, not everyone can do this, but…

You could look at the longer range EVS (MG4 77 for example)- and remember range is often calculated on Normal with mid regen braking on,…

If you are charging at home, you'll be asleep while your charging. Otherwise charging at work, shopping centers etc while you are off doing…
