Re: My ID.3 Vehicle Specification - do you have one?

From Facebook I have now learnt that easiest way to find specification is via https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/myvolkswagen/garage.html once logged in go, then to my vehicle equipment which for me lists 140 items, including lots of withouts, but no mention of without voice control or remote heating. Th...

Re: VW Price increases 1st Dec

Ok. No one knows why VW does not offer an ID3 in red. No one knows why VW is happy to sell cars cheaper in the US than here. No one knows what VW will do next. Here's my [complete] guess. As they have already sold every car they can build in the next 6 months why shouldn't they raise their prices? I...

Re: How to stop being a free charging point?

Dear Cherry I am surprised that some members of this forum tell you what they think you ought to do - without really knowing how it looks from your point of view. I think there are at least two issues for you: 1. The cost of the electricity. Do you know what it could cost you? Maybe the cost of the ...

Re: General 2.3 OTA rollout to start

My car was showing 2 bars on its signal strength meter and 0.0kbps downloading the update. I found that if I repeatedly tapped the progress bar it very slowly got longer. That confirmed what others have said - that the car was downloading despite showing 0.0kbps. Tow updates received and the previou...

Re: VW e-Pass in France?

I found that the filter that works is called "IONITY". If I search with filter "WeCharge" it does not show the bank of chargers just east of Maidstone which is run by... IONITY. Obviously the map needs work.... I used them about 6 weeks ago, I used the app to find them, here the...

Re: Matrix LED headlights

If you search Dr Google you will find that at night your ability to see into dark areas beside a bright light deteriorates as you get older. Here's one voice of experience that says this does happen when you are 70 years old. I found with our halogen-headlights 2011 Touran that at night dark areas b...

Re: VW e-Pass in France?

Thanks Utumno... but your article refers to Easytrip. Easytrip used to be the concession that ran a section of the French autoroutes, but that was bought up by - I think - Total oil company a few years ago. Open the We Connect ID. app, go to the map section, go to filters and select We Charge. Thank...

Re: Testing VW ID3 Sport with 120kW Charging

Doesn't seem to be much different to my Family except the seats and colour.. I was expecting suspension and power variation. I agree with you about the minimal differences from your Family car and mine. But it helps to remember we are enjoying our cars today, and not having to wait half a year for ...
