Re: Dynamic electricity pricing compatible chargers

You do have to email them once you are a customer, I was dabbling with Agile for a couple of months while monitoring our typical usage (not just EV charging) and decided Go Faster would work better for us.

Re: Dynamic electricity pricing compatible chargers

Also ask Octopus about Go Faster - it's based on Go but is more flexible. Go is a fixed price at fixed hours - 5p from 00:30-04:30 - whereas with Go Faster has 3 options: 3 hours @ 4.5p 4 hours @ 5p 5 hours @ 5.5p All with various start times as early as 20:30 - they offer a limited number of slots ...

Re: Would you do it again?

I can't do in i3 comparison, but the above comments specific to the ID3 are very fair. Mine has been back to the workshop for a couple of hardware tweaks and a good number of software-related matters resolved with updates - but to answer your question in terms of everything related to the car itself...

Re: SERVICE SCHEDULE

Every 2 years I thought, which this article seems to confirm: https://www.volkswagenag.com/en/news/stories/2020/03/the-big-cost-comparison--e-car-vs--combustion-engine.html# "ID.3 does not require an oil change and only needs to be taken to the workshop for inspection every two years – regardless of...

Re: ME2.0 update cancelled

My dealer explained that they have to log every reported fault onto a central VW system, plus they asked me for the list in advance so they could be prepared. It was a no brainier for me to send them my list, and as I say on both occasions they’ve had my car they’ve fixed things which do not appear ...

Re: ID3 Home Charging

I tried to get timed charging working with my 7kW Pod Point the other night. My tariff gives me cheap rate from 20:30-01:30, I tried setting a departure time of 01:00 with a charge level of 80% and all the car did was charge at about 2kW - by 01:00 it was at 51% I’ve read elsewhere that it is known ...

Re: ME2.0 update cancelled

So, post-update to 2.0 this week, and getting the car back last night, popped out and spent some time with the car today checking functions out etc. - the good news is that everything seems to be working perfectly!

Re: ME2.0 update cancelled

It’s not an official Facebook group and wasn’t an official comment from the tech, he’s just a member of that group trying to help owners - just like if a tech joined this forum.
