Re: Hyundai Sales Tactics

Not a lot of panel beating or spray painting experience in that comment. Sure, you can spray the panel and then fit it, but then you have to spray that panel and the panels adjacent to colour match/flow the different spray techniques and baking techniques that produce different colours from the sam...

Re: Hyundai Sales Tactics

Vehicles that used hybrid fuel supplies like LPG or CNG as well as petrol or diesel must have the LPG/CNG tank removed before they go into the baking oven. These days just about every repair must go into the baking oven because that is also the spray booth where the stray paint and vapours are eith...

Yeah the first post is pretty inflammatory. Cool story if you are a secret shopper on a mission but otherwise it's pointless. But why stop at Hyundai?. Try Jaguar. See how you go.

Battery Manager with inbuilt OBD?

So I know a lot of people here are using screens, and controllers with additional things that get bolted in.

Now, I also know Torque supports EV's as well.

Are there any controllers that have inbuilt Bluetooth for Torque connectivity?

It is black and white, you just haven't found the right people to talk to. I understand you've gone to the right people, but they are clearly clueless (or to be fair to the, under-trained).
Potentially yes, clueless engineers.

If you want a froot or frunk or whatever that thing is in the front get a Tesla. It's idiotic to expect it on every EV coming out.

I'm not aware of any manufacturers moving away from specified service intervals except possibly Tesla, who still recommend it. I guess they are relying on the car self reporting to them via its internet connection. That's exactly it, Tesla reports that you need to get [X] Serviced, and that it need...

The output of the gearbox is 3000rpm @660 Nm peak. It will be too fast to drive the wheels directly but if you ...

Re: Building a new Chassis/Skateboard

Wow. You must be finding the F-grade engineers. I'll see if I can get details of preferred guys in QLD. Brisbane? That'd be great. I'm not sure if it's a case of the laws really don't allow for it in enough writings to make it black and white, or the engineers are tossing it in the too hard basket.

So while I was out an about yesterday I managed to get a good solid half an hour with a Hyundai Dealer to discuss the Kona, the Ioniq, and Hyundai's upcoming Hydrogen car.
