Rear mounted bike carrier

I recent asked VW for a price to supply and fit a tow ball for my existing bike carrier. Almost fell off my chair when they quoted £1,275 which is just a silly number. Their own bike carrier would be an extra £400 on top of this number..... Anyone found a rear mounted bike carrier which hooks over t...

Re: Mirror dip when reversing

I live in central london and like to think I have reasonable lane discipline, however on quite a few occasions I have found it tugging away at the steering wheel pulling me towards danger rather than away from it which is always alarming and usually results in loud cursing! Massively annoying not to...

Re: Mirror dip when reversing

I think it’s just another example of poorly designed software. Driver should be able to select in vehicle settings ‘always dip on reverse’ or the existing (rather confounding) ‘only dip on reverse when L is manually selected’ It’s a bit like the lane departure system defaulting to ON at the start of...

Re: Mirror dip when reversing

That seems to be step backwards from my old MK5 golf where the mirror selector was always in L position so that when you select reverse it automatically dips. There’s nothing automatic about having to turn the mirror selector knob to L every time you want to reverse with the mirror dipped! Bit of a ...

Mirror dip when reversing

Hi All I have set my passenger mirror to dip when engaging reverse. However this only happens when the mirror selector is set to “L” Annoyingly the car always seems to forget the selector in the “L” position when I exit, so next time I get in the car and select reverse the mirror doesn’t dip in reve...

Re: 2.1 update confirmed

My car has been in for 2 weeks now. Control unit failed and still no date for replacement to be shipped, let alone a date for arrival. VW communication on the issue has been atrocious, massively regret buying VWs first attempt at an EV as clearly they are in disarray over software/ hardware issues a...

Re: 2.1 update confirmed

I just called VW west london and asked them for the next slot for 2.1 update. Almost fell off my chair when they told me mid May! Called Wimbledon and they said next week. My experience with West London is utterly dreadful, they cancelled on my 3 times for the 2.0 update and now seem to be 2 months ...

Re: Over-the-air updates happening!

Any idea how to identify the ID3 on your home wifi network?
Does it appear with an obvious name like VW ID3 or do you need to somehow find the MAC address of the car and search for its MAC address on your wifi network?

Re: Infotainment : Media

Yeah I have been using car play and Apple Music and using Siri to call up music and radio. I have software 2.0 already. I was trying to add Apple Music natively to the car as a streaming service but as you say it requires a separate data subscription which does not seem to be available yet to ID3 ow...
