    Had an altercation with a curb while attempting to get out of the way of an old dear who took a liking to my side of the road round a bend. Wheel is far from happy and tyres have a chunk taken out.

    I’ll go and speak to the tyre place tomorrow but I would prefer not to have to replace my tyre as it’s only a few months old... my suspicion is it will have to go though

    Any dash cam footage, could make an insurance claim against their insurance.

    That's not looking great, I'd prepare for the worst.

    Peeled the splitter apart on my 1 month old car, was not much fun as it had also been glued. It will now be repainted correctly to gloss black rather than body colour.

    The tyre is definitely done for.
    The wheel has a crack running from the most severe rim abrasion. You need a wheel specialist to look at that, not just a regular tyre shop.
    A welded repair may be possible, but it would need to go to someone who really knows what they are doing rather than just a garage that has a TIG welder.

    I'm exceptionally interested in this post, dying to fit the reversing cam. Would you keep me posted on how you get on?

    Mine has been connected to an optimate 6 once a month during the winter (as I dont travel far) for the last couple of years with no problems.
     
  16. Short answer is I agree with @Seastormer

    Long Answer

    From the 2014 Manual

    Charging the battery
    Terminals for charging the battery are fitted in the engine compartment.
    – Note the warnings ››› in Important safety
    warnings for handling a vehicle battery on page 206 and ››› .
    – Switch off all electrical devices. Remove the
    ignition key.
    – Raise the bonnet ››› page 199.
    – Open the battery cover.
    – Connect the charger clamps as described to the positive pole of the battery (+) and
    exclusively to an earth on the bodywork (–).
    – Only use a charger which is compatible for use with 12 V nominal voltage batteries.
    The charge must not exceed a voltage of 15V.
    – Now connect the battery charger to the power socket and switch on.
    – After charging the battery: switch off the battery charger and disconnect the power socket cable.
    – Finally disconnect the charger cables from the battery.
    – Replace the battery cover correctly.
    – Close the bonnet ››› page 199.

    Important: Before you charge the battery
    make sure you read the manufacturer's instructions
    for using the battery charger.

    WARNING
    Never charge a battery that has frozen: replace
    battery! Failure to do so may lead to an
    explosion.
    Note
    Use only the terminals in the engine compartment
    to charge the battery.

    Just need to add that I have added the permanent connection supplied with the Optimate which makes it easier and safer to use on a regular basis.

    I'd need to remove the battery and charge at home anyway. Can you see this being an issue?
    Thanks for the replies.
