    I saw this in a video with a 85D and was curious if new D70s also have the auto closing charge port? Anyone able to confirm yet?

    Now that are some more 70Ds out there, can any of the owners confirm the charge port door auto closes like 85D?

    It does!

    The DSP said its standard on all dual motor cars. Not sure if he is correct. Just sharing what I was told.

    Isn't it standard on all new cars, 70/85, Ds or otherwise?! They've moved onto the auto-closing port across the board, no?!

    If they have I haven't heard of anyone talking about it. But at this point I'm betting the RWD 85 is gone soon.
