I wonder if they're going to continue modifying the rest of them, as the ones that have been 'fixed' really are a joy to ride

Which ones have been "fixed"
Plugs not working on the prince bishops I got to work. Luckily charged my phone up at work.

They don't work on basically any of the streetlites bar 17' plates. Not sure about the 66'
They shouldn't be advertised then. Even tried the USB port hoping that it would charge more than 2% on the 20 min journey but that didn't work either

You managed to charge 2%?! On a B5 last night I lost 4% in 90 minutes
Wow. That's impressive!

Incredibly poor that it is considered to be a standard expectation from a vehicle type and from my experiences it is quite common especially on the Daimler engined examples.

It doesn't go unnoticed by general passengers either, remember getting on one of Arriva's on the 22 once and passengers were all looking towards the emergency exit door wondering what the horrific racket was.

I try to dodge them whenever I'm able to.

When i got on the streetlites especially the 63' plates the rattles, like you say the emergency exit. But then you also have the engine which sounds awful like it is being ploughed into the ground

And yet, the problem is seemingly resolvable given that GNE now have a few that have been 'fixed'.

I'm sure someone further up suggested it was the engine mounts causing the problem.
You'd think that would be identified pretty early on in production!

I mean, I may have complained that Sunderland lost it's Euro 6 buses, but I definitely don't miss those Daimler engined Streetlites now they've gone. Quite nice doing a 2 or a 39 now in relative peace and quiet.

I concour as a passenger.

Not sure if someone from GNE has took note of this, or it’s just a coincidence but 5474 must have been fixed as it sounds a lot better than it does on this video.
I've been on a few Coaster Streetlites today and they've all been rattle free. In fact, they were smoother than the e200 I'm on now
