EVE mattress return – or mabye later.

Returning the mattress aka Home Trial:

So, I am looking at the order confirmation mail. No plain instructions on how to return the mattress. I now created a simple mail and sent it to hello@sleepeve.no

 

tracking mail
Wrong email. Eve said they will fix it shortly

 

When the mail bounced I got really scared. Is the whole thing a scam?

 

I browsed their web and found the “right address” https://www.sleepeve.no/contact it is hej@sleepeve.no. It is hello in Swedish, but it works. I got a ticket number and now I wait.

The customer service

It is really good. They both replied swiftly on mail and by phone. They did recommend me to try out the bed for 30 days in order for my body to adapt. I am highly sceptical of this. What if I ran a hotel or had visitors over. They would have a bad time on the bed and not get the time to adjust to the bed.

But I have time so why not give it some more days. They give me 100 days and I can sacrifice some days of not great sleep if for some reason my body starts to love this mattress. I am not really buying it at this point but I will go along. Then at least I tried.

 

 

 

 

 

EVE sleep mattress – No sleep…

The First night of no-sleep

So I spent my first night on the Mattress. It was abysmal. It was awful.

Eve sleep mattress is very firm. I sleep mostly on my side and my back. My shoulder hurt when I woke up. My quality of sleep was poor. I kept tossing and turning the whole night.

I am returning this mattress. I will also switch back to my cheap IKEA mattress. However in all fairness I will try one more night on the mattress (mostly because the IKEA mattress sheet is in the washing machine).

My recommendation

I can not recommend this mattress on a general basis. It is not soft at all nor does it mold to your body. If you sleep on your belly and you prefer a very firm bed, then this is the bed for you. If you like soft mattresses this mattress will not be comfortable and I highly recommend spending money on a more expensive mattress from a proper mattress brand.

I know I will. And it is going to be way more expensive, and way softer but my sleep is going to be way better.

Eve Sleep Mattress – Norway version

You might have seen the ads on Facebook, but you have the same question as everyone else. Is it any good?

I have been looking to buy a new bed for 3 months now. I have been to several bed stores and looked at several beds. I have laid in them for a long time and relaxed in the store.

If Eve can deliver the same quality as a 20.000NOK ($2500) mattress then Eve is cheap. If not you are just fooling your self. When you are investing in a bed then you would want the best mattress at the best price. Emphasis on best mattress.

So how is Eve?

Delivery:

It was delivered two days early. That is good (and bad). They just ring the bell and you have to be home and prepared. If you are not then there is lots of logistics around picking it up from the UPS point.

The mattress came in a box that seems like it is too small. It was impossible to take it out from that box. I had to use a heavy duty knife to open the box. Be carefull not to damage the mattress! Also, in Norway we speak Norwegian and English. Not German.

The mattress cover is perfectly aligned in the edges, but that is not really a problem.

First impression:

Big mattress, thicker than the IKEA mattress I had. After sleeping on IKEA for more than 8 hours my back would be sore and it is painful. However it is cheap.

Eve is not soft! Not at all. Not compared to my real frame mattress bed. Eve is firm and there is a hint of memory foam as you sink in. I like soft beds and I was very disappointed. Eve is among the firmer foam mattresses.

The first night:

Tomorrow I will write more about the first night of sleep.

However, I am sceptical. My first impression is not good at all. I like soft mattresses and I expect to be disappointed.

Fixing Tesla Model X license plate issue

If you are from Norway you might have this issue.

20170323_175510

It’s because Tesla messed up and use a too large screw. However it is easy to fix yourself if you already picked up your car and signed off. If you are picking up your car, make them switch screws.

20170323_175248

Here is the simple and effective trick that will remove prevent a costly paint job if people or cars bump your license plate slightly.

Just remove the license plate and unscrew the two top screws. Replace them with a smaller screw and there you are:

 

 

Thinking about Rubber Spray – Liquid Gum?

Some of you have probably seen cans with rubber spray or heard about a spray that you can spray on and peel off. Guess what, it is all true and it works great!

I bought a can of it at Jula http://www.jula.no/catalog/bygg-og-maling/maling-og-fugemasse/spraymaling/spraylakk/gummispray-623115/

Remember this before you start:

  1. Try first, try in on a similar material
  2. YOU MUST PUT ATLEAST 3 COATINGS
  3. Buy enough cans, you have limited time to apply after each coating

The spray does not work if you do not put enough coatings, you will not be able to remove it properly. If you are coating a rim, buy some extra cans. You don’t have time to go back to the shop if you run out and it could be very hard to remove the coating

Pictures below from a showel I tried it on. Videos below pictures show both a coarse surface and a smooth surface

Tesla Model X 6 seat configuration – skis

If you are thinking about which seat configuration to get with your Tesla Model X, here is a picture of the 6-seat version which allows for skis to be positioned in the middle while keeping the second row seats.

You might ask yourself, why not a ski hitch? For me, two simple reasons

  1. I had to buy it extra
  2. My skis will get incredible dirty from the drive

wp_20170118_21_25_30_pro_li

In the bag there are 2 pair of Telemark skis which are about 170cm long. There is plenty of more space for even longer Cross Country skis or Snowboards. You could even keep one third row seat up and allow for 5 passengers.

Use the security mesh to hold down and stow away the skiboots in the deep part of the trunk.

Towing with Tesla Model X – 7 pin adapter

The Tesla Model X comes with a new 13-pin female connector and most older trailers have a old 7 pin male connector.

wp_20170114_12_12_11_rich_li

You need to buy an adapter at Biltema or Jula.  Here is the adapter you need

http://www.biltema.no/no/Fritid/Campingvogn-og-bobil/Elektrisk-12V/Adapter-2000016506/

When you insert the adapter try to push the original lid behind the plastic bottom case as in the picture. This is the only way to get the adapter to fit the plug without the original lid getting in the way.

Once you have connected your trailer and hooked it up, go into the Tesla and make sure that Towing mode is on

Once you connect a cable the car automatically enters into “Towing mode” if it does not do this, go to:  Controls->Driving->Towing Modetowing-mode

Once you have on towing mode, go drive. You can use your rear view camera to keep an eye on your trailer

Opel Ampera-E launch in Norway

Opel Amper-E visited Norway this week and here are some pictures, thoughts and reflection on the upcoming car.

Finish and Build Quality. Plastic fantastic. It’s easy to see that money went into developing the battery and technical equipment. You have leather seats with generic gray and some colored/textured plastic. It’s not anywhere close to a BMW.

 

The touchscreen and infotainment system comes in Norwegian local language. yay! The design is so-so. buttons are big and easy to hit while the car is stationary.

Headroom is good in the front and acceptable in the rear. I am 186cm.

Legroom is very good actually. There is plenty of space for 4 passengers. It will be cramped for 5, but it is possible.

Finally, it will be possible for roof mounted boxes or other roof equipment.

Gult er kult til brunt

På det nye huset så hadde vi sånne grå plater ved vinduene. Det var kjedelig.

WP_20160509_21_23_33_Pro

Derfor bestemte vi oss for å gjøre noe med det.

Dro til Maxbo Stormarked på Skjetten og kom hjem med Grendegult og Gul ublandet base.

Vi grunnet og så testet vi med fargene. Likte den mørke best.WP_20160623_21_59_57_Pro_LI

Ble ganske fint. Her er første strøket tatt

Tok ut alle skruene før jeg malte. Malte med rulle to strøk.

Slik ble det ferdig resultatet

Venter spent på hva naboen bestemmer seg for
