    I'd still rather have battens like the one above. Numerals make it look like a kids watch.

    Not interested in a full electric car for long-range driving that has to use public charger networks. They're shit, they cost loads, they're usually full and they're slow to charge.

    Would only consider a Tesla because their charge rate and network are good or a PHEV because of their capability beyond electric for the big / main car.

    The main reason for this is that we travel down to my parents place in France at least once a year. That's a 1,600 mile round trip on the autoroutes. Using an e-niro would mean hours of additional charging as well as registering for different services etc which I can't be bothered with. A Model 3 (or preferably Model Y) would mean 4 / 5 stops in total but only for 30-40 mins max at each one.

    Not coming to the UK until 2022 ish otherwise 100% agreed. That would be the decision made if I could get one.

    I gave up my pre-order last year when they bumped the release date to later this year because I had to hand the 4 series back in October last year. That got swapped for a RR Velar which I've got until at least October this year.

    The Zoe is for Siona on her year's maternity leave to get around locally without the need to use the giant car... easier parking, cheaper running costs etc.

    I'm currently looking at three options for October onwards for the Velar:

    1. Keep it
    2. Get a Model 3 LR
    3. Get an X5 45e

    Agreed; origins was the first game (in any series / on any platform) in a while that I completed 100%.

    It was large enough to be varied but not so large to be a chore.

    I thought origins was great. Black flag is the best one though.

    Surprisingly good. We’ve got the top version (gt line?). Nice digital displays and centre console, recycled plastic bottle cloth & leather seats are good. Looks modern and comes with decent tech (auto lights / wipers), heated wheel and seats, CarPlay, wireless charging etc.

    Nowhere near as good quality as the Velar but then that should have been £90k new whereas this is more like £32k new.

    Quiet (very little road and tyre noise) and comfortable. Not a harsh ride like some electric cars I’ve tried.

    Feels quite spacious but front seat heights are fixed so taller people might be cramped. Electronic handbrake and raised gear selector mean that it feels open as there’s no centre tunnel.

    Haven’t sat in the back but apparently you sit very high as the batteries are under the seats. Not that I’ll ever be sitting in the back.

    Will definitely be using the rr for long journeys though.
