Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car.

  • My choice of colour as void is very hard to clean. Stunning when clean though just hard work to maintain.
  • Having to wait for Apple CarPlay to arrive. Rather frustrating as was supposed to be last year but was delayed.
  • The phone app is pretty poor as keeps coming and going and needs to be reconnected with the car regularly.

TCAM (Telematics and Connectivity Antenna Module) outage.

Pilot assist is very good in traffic, makes sure you stay in touch with car in front without the hassle of braking and accelerating. The car does it all for you.

The new Vivaldi app allows great access to loads of features like YouTube & Facebook while charging. Google is your best friend for heated seats!

Will wait until the EVs have evolved as happy with mine at the moment.
