Re: Stop prompt for handsfree and auto connect?

Re: Kia e-Niro

Hi Colin Lambert.
Hope you enjoy test but make sure you check out my comments about rear seating setup.
Can you Note the tyre make and version as they may be using harder rubber , ie noiser than hybrid Niro tyres.
The first edition seats may be more gripping than some other Niro seats
