Twizy arrived Friday morning on a flat bed, first visual impressions - stunning! The previous owner had obviously looked after it well and the garage preparation was very good. Thank you both, I now have a Twizy in showroom condition.
Made my first shopping trip Friday afternoon. 24 miles using 57% of the battery, which seems ok. I’m sure I can improve on that with a lighter right foot and better use of regen.
I left it twice, with some trepidation, in public car parks and of course there was some curiosity but no problems. The gentle folk down here were probably puzzling over where you hitch the horse!
I wonder which is safer, hiding it away behind the trolley store or putting it in full view as close to the front door as possible.
A cardboard box in the back held the shopping but I think I may invest in Christian’s rear rack with a lockable box.
On Saturday I fitted mudflaps. Three hours for the first side and thirty minutes for the second! The three hours did include finding my spanners - when did I last work on a car.
Do any of you carry an extension lead for mid trip charge ups? Obviously a 50 metre reel would cover all eventualities but have you found an optimum length that would also be practical to carry and would you recommend a heavy duty cable?
Wednesday is the next opportunity for a drive - can’t wait!
