Re: Bulb upgrade

I am thinking of fitting these to my NIRO PHEV as I am a bit disappointed with the original ones ,HB3 OSRAM Night Breaker Laser Next Generation 12v 60w Headlight Bulb , Has any one fitted these, I know there are brighter ones but I want to stay legal.

Re: Charging PHEV

Is your car switched on to "Charge now " or "charge to schedule".
The charge rate for Tesla charge at the Supercharger stations is much higher than the charge rate for NIRO (3.3kw)
I gather that only Tesla's can charge at Tesla charger

Re: EV mileage and noise

I have now done 1200 miles in my PHEV and I have never noticed the engine noise, the worst noise is that artificial engine noise at low speed.

Is this a LEGAL requirement as I tend to switch it off as it drives me mad?

Re: What size SD card is advisable for the sat/nav etc. in the Niro hybrid

Charging PHEV

I have had my NIRO PHEV since October 30 and I have never charged it away from the house, now this does not bother me, but I began to think when I go on holiday later this year I may feel that I should be looking into it. Now that I have been looking at this, there seems to be all sorts of cards ,RF...

Re: Kia Niro: Maps & Software update

Is there a newer version of map than the one above? My NIRO PHEV (NOV 2018) is the same as that and I find that I am being told " please refer to map" every time I encounter a road that has been there for about 2 years.

Re: Best and Worst Thing About Your Niro

The updates are free for 7 years (I believe) but you have to pay for the dealer having to download them onto your SD card.
