Re: Bike prep.

I have an ATERA DL3 as well and use it on my California. The rack weighs 14.5 kg as you say and I think this needs to be included as the limit is the total weight on the tow hitch. The California limit is 60 kg so not much difference from the id3. I have two electric mountain bikes , which weigh 20 ...

Re: Navigation with full postcode

Every time I get near home my nav system announces "Caution: limited access ahead" - really annoying! I think I might have to move house... or at least where the nave system thinks my house is.

Re: Cheers!

Hi @Emanuel and @rthomps - I agree that the ID.3 is a great car - I really enjoy driving it. I just wish VW would get their act together to sort out the software problems but that should happen before we come out of lockdown 3.0!! :lol:

Re: Non VW branded 3pin charging

I regularly use a 10m granny lead bought from Screwfix for £160. I've not had any problems charging (unless I stop charging and try to start again). The amount of home charging I am likely to do made me baulk at £500 for a 7kW charger... So you're the one who bought it! I found it listed as 'in sto...

Re: What are your best bits?

I agree @heidiFlowerpot - the lights are absolutely outstanding. My Passat had lights that moved with the steering and my California has automatic dipping LED lights but the id3 lights are way better than either.

Re: Breakdown Set/Tyre Jack/Wheel Locking Nuts

Useful to know the tyres aren't run flat! I didn't get an inflation kit - and I'm sure I didn't get a locking wheel nut adapter - I'll check tomorrow...
