Re: headlight adjustment

One of the complaints that Consumer Reports or some such had was headlight glare. It was IIHS that said that the headlamps made too much glare. I stand corrected. Lower 'em an inch and see what you think. They are odd for HIDs in that they have a little lump in the middle rather than the razor-shar...

Re: From a Leaf to a Bolt: Early Returns

Interesting complaints. The charge cord is stout enough for the load it carries, and the charging door works. I suspect they engineered the cord and door to work well and be lightweight, not to be heavy and pleasing to the touch. Plastic interior is just OK, and I wouldn't object to a charge port li...

A bunch of us have done it. All you need is 20 minutes and
