Re: Would you do it again?

Would I do it again? Probably. But the software issues are a terrible own goal on VW's part. I'm still amazed how VW got themselves into the mess they're in. Let me give you a taste (FYI, we've had the car since the end of Nov)... Bugs - our car now has the 2.0 interim release pushed out in Dec, but...

Re: Heat Pump and Range

My 2c worth... I splashed out on the heat pump on ours in the hope that it would deliver at least close to the 20-30% improvement in efficiency that VW promised. I don't have another ID.3 without a heat pump to compare it with, but we're a two-car household with a Tesla Model 3 LR AWD (no heat pump)...

Re: Delayed charging

Well, I tried the schedule departure time option rather then preferred times last night but it failed. I left the car with the green light flashing and the battery at 43% charge. Woke up to the battery still at 43% charge and with the charge light showing constant red. How can VW release this junk?

Re: LHD Wipers Fitted to RHD Car

It's not a geometry problem, it's a time sequence problem. The sequence now is left up, right up, right down, left down. it should be right up, left up, left down, right down for a RHD car. The LH wiper also moves closer to the screen edge than the RH one - so for a full and proper RHD setup there ...

Re: LHD Wipers Fitted to RHD Car

New to this forum (but longtime VW owner/fan/tinkerer!)...just got our ID.3 and can see what is being referred to here....I think there may be an easy fix?! From what I can see the issues being described are simply a result of which wiper is first/last to sweep the screen - they are currently 'stac...

Re: v2.0 - still room for improvement

I haven't had time to fully explore v2.0 yet but CarPlay was one thing I was looking forward to and it seems to be well implemented. It does seem to work well, I agree. The only real fault I've found is that the CarPlay screen often doesn't get refreshed after another screen has been up (e.g. clima...

Re: v2.0 - still room for improvement

Apologies if this has already been covered, this is my first post. I ordered my ID.3 at the weekend with an expected delivery of one month's time. Given that it's still being built, should I expect it to come with software 2.0 / 0783 or an older version? Thanks. Who knows? I would guess that it'll ...

Re: Wheels

Hi all, I'm considering buying an iD.3, but am really not impressed with any of the offered wheel choices, they're all downright ugly imo. I think the Andoya wheels look very nice (and they are really easy to clean): https://s7g10.scene7.com/is/image/volkswagenag/electric-electric_cars-id3-auto_car...

Re: When was 0783 version of software implemented for UK cars?

I bought my car from Listers and went to their website a little before Christmas where I found an online chat capability. I had a brief exchange with someone there who understood the ID.3 very well and once I mentioned a few of the issues I was having (airbag warning, alarm activations, interior lig...
