Re: Is Maintenance on a lease good value?

I did not choose the maintenance either. I felt there's a lot less to go wrong (famous last words).

Re: Pre-Purchase Help Requested

When delivered at the beginning of 2021 my ID3 was the same - Pre-conditioning using the app only worked when the car was plugged in. After having the software updated I can now reliably precondition anywhere using the app (as long as there is mobile coverage!). I would check the version of your car...

Re: Thud sound at low speed ?

I’ve noticed a quiet thud occasionally but it’s the heater kicking in. But I think it comes from the front of the car. Not noticed any other sounds related to ACC.

Could this explain it?

Re: THINGS MY DEALER DIDN'T TELL ME ABOUT CHARGING

>> I also feel smug that I've caused virtually no CO2 emissions since December. .

If only that were true in the UK where our electricity generation mix is 40% from burning fossil fuels, mainly gas. Glad it’s very slowly improving with all the renewable investment.

Re: WeConnect app

Has anyone successfully used the We Connect app to precondition the ID3? My We Connect account is set-up fine and the app reliably connects - it shows range and charge status correctly. But the heating/cooling has never worked - three different errors are shown on iPhone depending on... sun spot act...

Re: What a nice car!

Great post. I concur with your VW dealership salesperson observation; many seem to be absolutely clueless about the product. I suspect VW sacrificed the staff training and preparation, as with the software readiness, in order to just get product out there come hell or high water. >>plenty of rapid c...

Re: OUR Real World Range

>>All in D Just curious - assuming you're aiming for best economy / range, why are you driving in D instead of B? I use B by default - Straw poll: I'm wondering what other owners prefer, D or B? The regen braking seems to offer moderate range boost - unless on continuous motorway style roads with ve...

Re: ME2.0 update cancelled

The availability of these software updates seems very spotty. Surprisingly my local dealer routinely updated my ID3 to 0784 yesterday without a murmur. I say routinely, it was primarily an attempt to solve the alarm going off randomly in the night. So far so good. -The on-screen home key is now on t...

Re: Car alarm went off at 5am

Many thanks for the tips. My ID.3 is currently taking its first holiday to the local VW workshop to sort out the alarm issue (and an update from 0564 to 0783, if they can figure it out..)

Car alarm went off at 5am

Oh joy. The new ID3 decided to wake everyone up this morning at 5:05. It was locked normally and plugged in at the time. Absolutely nobody around (the house motion lights were all off. Rural location). Slightly breezy, wet weather. Is this going to be a regular occurrence I wonder ... has anyone els...
