    Wiper Speed

    Not quite what you asked, and may be you know it already, but on the wiper stalk there is a little lever with 3 settings. It sets the sensitivity of the auto wiper.

    Service Booking Sytner

    Definitely worth it..............for me....! Apart from the reduced BIK tax, which has now kicked in for me (love it when the tax man pays me for a change !) it's costing me a fair bit less in petrol+electrics. So for me it's worth it, but it's not a car for daily high milage people.

    Service Booking Sytner

    Best I've seen on mine in the past year has been 27, which would quickly go down to 26. As the temperatures are dropping, I'm seeing a drop in electric range. Lowest I had last winter was 16...! I wonder if the upcoming service, and possibly any software updates, will make any difference

    My 530e cable has died

    LOL... Sounds a bit frustrating but good that you got lots of updates. Mine will soon go in for it's first service soon, so I'm hoping it will get those little updates as well. Fingers crossed for tomorrow for you. Hopefully the new cable will do the job.

    My 530e cable has died

    Yep, sounds like the charger, by which I guess you mean the 13A 3 pin one that comes with the car. Have you elimiated any problems with the socket ? i.e. tried plugging in to alternative sockets ?

    Delivery Leadtime

    Yes, I did. I went for a 32A tethered installation with Podpoint. I know the car takes a max 16A so going for the 32A is just to future proof for future cars and it was minimal extra cost.

    Delivery Leadtime

    Sounds like normal delivery for spec'd car to me. If memory serves me right, it used to be a lot longer when the 530e first came out.
