    I'd like to thank all the posters that provided so much info - Thanks!

    1 week old, 685 km - maybe 6 liters of gas (not sure if dealer filled to the top - gauge indicated full).
    It was the 2nd car sold at my dealer - he has sold 4 more - but only has allotment of 4 cars for the whole year and has no idea if or when he may get the 'allowed' 2 and/or the extra 2.

    I asked for basic gray - but the red touring came in and I grabbed it - glad I did as gas here has gone from around a $1.10 a liter to a $1.35.

    my HV range went from 470 km to now 455 km - but did NOT change when I added the 6 liters - is that the dreaded HV anomaly ?

    Been very pleased with car - tried the 'carbon fiber' tape from Canadian Tire - but did a poor job - so payed to have stoneguard put on door sills and trunk.

    Followed the LED for courtesy mirrors instructions... pry from BOTTOM; and in my case I turned LED's around so they were not so bright. Works well.

    Got an hour meter and installed it... took a chance and took out the bolt holding the spark plug top to the engine - it popped up and I had an easy time of wrapping the wire around. Will have to wait until I actually use the ICE; and hope I didn't do anything bad by undoing the bold...

    When I got car, it had 69 km available battery - almost got me home - missed by 8 km and I didn't even hear the ICE come on.

    Last full charge I got 89.5 km range - which I thought was really good.

    Purchased a 220V 16 Amp charger (non kit) from the guy in CA who sells a kit - cost $320 Canadian after shipping etc - very reasonable. Ordered and received the 32 Amp unit from Quebec $902 Cnd all in - waiting to hook it up.

    Only strange thing so far is 3 or 4 times; the car beeps and a bright red BRAKE appears on the screen (in front of the steering wheel) No assistive options on; no one in front; cruising at regular speed; a 'slight' change in car; but no loss of speed. No idea what is happening.

    Used HV once, on purpose - drove 12 km and got 11 km extra battery range.

    That's it for me. Cheers John

    PS: question - I refused Sirius XM - but it seems I have around 10 or 12 channels - is that normal?

    Congrats! Sounds like you're well on your way to personalizing your car already!

    Re: Sirius XM - don't know if it's the same in Canada, but US models come with something like a 3 month free trial to Sirius XM.

    What is the LED for courtesy mirrors modification?

    Hi Kendalf - search for post "
    Replacing the only non-LED bulb: the 4 vanity lights"

    Regards John (yes we get 3 month trial too - but I only get 12 ch which seems skimpy (but I DON'T want Sirius)

    Oh, I remember that. For some reason I was thinking it was a mod to add LEDs to the side mirrors!

    Forget the HV range value. It is useless.
