My Taycan Turbo finally arrived and collected. ( although my biz partners has gone missing )
But having a bit of “range anxiety”.
Probably due to a 200 mile drive home from Hatfield to Leeds - then plugging in at home on what feels like a trickle charge - fortunately can charge 3phase at work much faster.
Hopefully that will pass as I get accustomed to not having the guarantee that I can go down to 20mile range and know I can get fuel anywhere.
Fortunately the longer trips are rare, but also one of the reasons why we changed the mini to a CX5.
Obviously it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. But it made financial sense to me and my company meaning between me and the company I am a lot better off in this than the Panamera or any ICE car.
At last the whirring noise has gone after a visit to a new local garage who were excellent. The cause was found to be the compressor and on investigation it was found that the system only had 195g of gas in it and absolutley no oilbased on the fact that most compressors store 50% of the original factory fill inside the housing.
Thankfully I had provided parts and asked him to oil balance the compressors before replacement and this is how we found that the fitted unit was dry, however having said that the replacement was the same so we are presuming that the breakers had drained it before dispatch as per the courior rules these days. The units come factory filled with 100ml. The system had been recharged twice by kwikfit but there is a possiblity that they screwed up based on there no charge policy if its not 10% cooler after recharge, I am suspicious that they may not of even charged it but have no proof as was given no print out on either visit. Can't blame them for...
