Re: Things aren’t going well with the new Max

That's strange isn't it. I wonder why some cars seem so prone to issues. I personally blame the owners though. they've obviously been bad in their previous life! I suppose it is better than coming back as an ant or something. Personally, as I always argue with a computer help desk when they tell me...

Re: Weird episode after first charge

If you leave the ID.3 on charge for long periods of time (over 8 hours) then there is a known issue that drive system failure will be reported, for me all I need to do is shut the car down, i.e. park and get out, then when I get back in the error is gone. I believe this is still the case even with 2...

Re: Hello from an excited new member

If by a home charger you mean a 3-pin plug in charger (granny charger), then to take advantage of your solar generation you need to have it only come on when you are generating solar energy. I do this with current clamps on my solar and household electricity circuits, and a wireless socket which onl...

Re: How long does version 2.0 upgrade take?

Quick query for those that have already had the version 2 upgrade. How long does it usually take? My VW garage started on Tuesday morning and apparently it’s unlikely to be ready til tomorrow (Thursday) is that normal? 2+ days? Wish I’d actually asked for a courtesy car now.... :shock: Reasonable q...

Re: 1 month and counting

Sorry to disappoint, but I’ve just had a call to say my new ID3 is fixed (only look 34 days). They’ve tested most things I could think of (keyless entry etc) and all seems well. In view of how long this has taken + the fact it’s probably filthy after lying around so long, they are going to hold ont...

Re: Just taken delivery!!!

Back in December, I found going to https://userguide.volkswagen.de/w/en_GB/welcome and entering my VIN, I could access the manual online from day 1, but it took 6 weeks for the UK link to work on my registration or VIN. I don't know if this is still the case, could have been a VW server issue that h...

Re: 145 ps or 204ps

I guess with 145ps only you are likely to get more efficiency just because you are limited at the rate you can deplete the battery (how fast you can accelerate / how much power is available). So adding a heat pump would give you an even more efficient ID.3. I went for a heat pump, as I was going for...

Re: 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 rev...

Re: 1 month and counting

Sorry to hear your is still not close to being fixed. I also don't understand the total lack of urgency, as you say you haven't even got your car, so you would think they might be concerned about your walking away. I my case I realise now collecting a car on 23rd December is not good timing, as 2 we...
