Cabin air filter - 2020 Limited EV

Any suggestions re. OEM or FRAM or other?

OEM is 97133-D3200, FRAM looks like CF12160.

Changing it looks very easy but I would be interested in how people feel about changing it to a different make.

Great - that research suits me! :-)

The "good season " is just around the corner here. I think in April the GOM gets really close to telling th truth for me.

Re: My Soul EV's Full Charge Is About 10 Miles Less In Colder Weather(below 50 degrees)

Interesting question. I have kept lots of stats on temperature and range etc for almost 3 years now and one thing I didn't record was when I use Winter Mode. However looking at the temperature curve I suspect I turn it on about mid-November to mid-April and at those times the average temperature for...

Adding LED strip between lights?

Has anyone found any way LEDs could "join" the headlights along the front of the hood? Third party?

Although I guess if it is wired into the DLRLs it might invalidate the warranty possibly.

Charger door issues

2020 Limited - Canada - owned for over 2yrs I recently started having difficulty opening the charger door. It went from being a bit tricky to make sure I hit the raised arrow, to having to use many attempts to unlock the car or even manually moving a lever that seems to not work. When I unlock the c...
