Re: Keyless Entry - Safety Issues

You don’t need a faraday pouch as the key ‘sleeps’ if motionless. Relay attacks need the key to be ‘awake’.

Re: Tyre pressures at delivery?

Yes it uses the abs wheel rotation centre and flags up any unusual differences in rotation speed across the axle.

Some fancier systems have a sensor in the valve (in the wheel side) but not the id3 afaik.

It’s the same system in my partners 2011 polo! Guess it works..!

Re: Charging cost increases again

MH. I’d do the trip a couple of times before getting subs and see where works for you. Guessing you’ll need about 100kwh (over two charges)? May be somewhere free/east in MK? Otherwise a stop on the way down and on the way back. ionity near Leeds? Skelton lakes I think. Wolley edge services N and S ...

Re: ID.3 107KW Family Pro 58kWh - Thoughts?

I’ve just sold my life pro (same power) and upgraded to a Tour (bit heavier but the extra power). Can’t say I notice the difference to be honest. As above - near identical up to 40mph or so. Maybe a bit less zip for motorway overtaking etc.. but it’s got plenty. Re resale. Mine went for about 2-3k l...

Re: Charging cost increases again

I was in the same position as the OP - but after 6 months of ownership was able to move to home charging and for the last 4 months octopus go. My 15000 miles have cost me £1000. 6p a mile. I think it’s a poor argument to compare 57p charging to £1.90 a litre. Perhaps better to compare 57p to motorwa...

Re: front led lightbar

As having recently moved to an id3 with rear speakers - I don’t really notice any difference tbh! But I’m not an audio buff.

IIRC the easier upgrade was to upgrade the front speakers only - which apparently made a very worthwhile difference…

Re: front led lightbar

You can - an EU retailer sells them (sorry forgotten who) - but you'll probably also have the headlights with a single LED bar - rather than the bar/strip all the way around the headlight that models with the light bar have. But of course that might not matter :) BTW - is the light bar only on when ...

Re: Aftermarket Reversing Camera Installation

Having owned a life with no camera and now a tour with the camera and all the area view shizz - I wouldn’t spend that much for the camera. It’s nice - but I don’t have any problems reversing the id3 with the sensors.

But - fully appreciate some people really like the camera etc…

Re: Bike Transport retrofit

I’ve got roof bars - and used a roof top box with absolutely no problems (bars by Farad) but there are folk here who’ll say it’ll invalidate your warranty etc… That’s maybe a debate for another thread. However, there are mounting lugs/markers for roof bars - but as Vw don’t sell them they are sniffe...
