    Do you need Premium connectivity for remote access?

    My premium connectivity trial runs out in 2 days and I didn’t have any intention in renewing (will just use my phone as a hotspot) but then I thought… will I lose the remote access/monitoring via the phone without premium connectivity? I know it should work when at home as the car is connected...

    Thanks so much, really helpful. Thanks also for the kind offer, but I'll order a bottle and see how I get on. 👍

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Yeah, but how? Do you mean to do another wash? (I don’t have any white vinegar or the spot removal spray suggested above. It’s mainly the bonnet, just incredibly stubborn and not budging 😖

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    The issue is I recall reading other forum threads where going to one of the car hand washes resulted in swirls and scratches due to the amount of cars being washed with the same mitts etc so I thought I would do it myself at home… alas, I made it worse for myself 😖

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Can I ask which method you used to remove them?

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Thanks, I needed to read the last part to clam myself down. I did retry the polar seal on a small area of the boot lid but no joy… I’m leaning towards just putting it to the back of my mind and hoping it comes out in the next wash in a months time.

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Thanks everyone… I really think this is down to the polar seal drying too quickly before I got back to properly dry the car… completely my fault on all fronts. :-( There’s been mention of using a clay bar or the meguiars water spot removal… which would you recommend I try first? If it is the...

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Well, I've had the most disastrous first wash of my MR this weekend... long story, short; I pressure washed my car yesterday and finished with AytoGlym Polar Seal... the problem is I started packing things away and I took too long to come back and dry the car and by the time I returned the car...

    Can people with a M3 please do a test for me

    Noise when sitting in car

    Not related to the OP, but for at least 2 hours *after* a short journey (5 miles approx) my M3 is still making this noise (video attached) is this the heat pump? And if so, what is it doing 2-3 hours after the journey? Surely the power needed to run it is wasting more energy than its saving...

    Sun cream on arm rest …. Argh!!

    Thanks all… a wet wipe helped but you can still see the circle where it was, so I’ll try the hand santiser tip. Its one of those days… I proceeded to wash my car and now it’s covered in horrid water spots because I made the bone head decision to wash under direct sunlight with (our known) hard...

    Sun cream on arm rest …. Argh!!

    With the gorgeous weather today, my arms had sun cream applied, and after a drive I realised I’d been resting my arm in the arm rest and there’s a cloudy white stain it! ******* typical! in a panic I tried rubbing it off with tissue but it’s just left a cloudy blotch… any tips on how to remove? :(

    How have you found the EO? That's the one I was looking at before considering the TWC. Thanks to everyone else for the replies, very helpful!

    Noise when sitting in car

    I noticed that exact same noise when I collected my car 3 weeks ago, but since I'd put in a Supercharger as my destination on the navigation, I assumed it was associated with the pre-conditioning of the battery. However, it continued to make it even after I left the supercharger and lasted for...

    Home Charge Points Discussion and Suggestions [megathread]

    Moderator comment - posts merged from "Tesla Home Wall Charger... Recommend or Avoid?" Looking at options for installing a Home Charger, but it seems like most of the popular choices (Pod-point, EO etc) all require you to use their installers (I have managed to find a great local electrician so...
