Very nice outcome that, free transport and £3k for your trouble 👍

Shame there’s not another EV that tickles your fancy, an M4 wouldn’t see which way Taycan went for example 😆
Cheers mate.

Yeah I’m looking at previous M4. So 35-40k budget. Only about 60k short of a Taycan ;)

Re: Selling ID.3

Re: Selling ID.3

Just a quick update for anyone interested. Car went on with Motorway on Saturday, got picked up this morning. Such a simple process.

The plus point was ended up getting £3k more for it than I paid brand new 4 months and 5k miles ago. Crazy.

Now on the hunt for an M4 :)

Re: Selling ID.3

Thanks a lot guys.

From the look of second hand prices I may well hold
off a while once I’ve sold the ID.3 for prices to drop back to normal once the chip problem is resolved.

Re: Selling ID.3

It’s interesting that you’re not interested in the car and only wanted it for the free miles. Out of curiosity why did you get the ID3 instead of any other EV? Rgds Needed a hatchback or estate, wanted something with reasonable range and power. Tesla’s were more than I wanted to spend. Thought the ...

Re: Selling ID.3

I bought it 3 months ago as was doing 500 miles a week commuting to work. I start a new job week after next. Wfh half the time and commute is 8 miles each way when I do go in. The only reason I bought the id.3 was for the free fuel to get to work as could charge at work for free. It’s not really my ...

Media screen totally frozen

Hi, I’m the bloke with the media screen that turned red and blurry after 4 hours of ownership. VW had it in and needs a new screen. Waiting on a back order for one. Today it’s gone one step further. Screen is now totally unresponsive in normal mode with the blue boxes on the screen. Nothing works, c...

Re: Wall charger install costs?

Totally depends on how far your garage is from your house (or rather how far from your meter you want the charger installing). Mine was about 40 meters so required a lot of cabling and hiding the cable, then in at the back of the garage, upgrading the box in there and then round to the front of it w...

Re: Will I or won’t I?

Have you tried the ID.3 Facebook group? They have lots of dealers who might have what you want in stock? I was quoted 20 week wait time and no discount by my local dealer, went on the FB group and found exactly what I wanted, delivered 5 days later, 6k off new price.

Re: First test drive

Totally agree re brakes. I’ve had 5 series for the last ten years and the ID.3 is utter crap at braking compared to them. Dangerously so imo. Fine for gradual slow down but I had to brake sharply from 60 last week and genuinely my old car would have stopped in less than half the distance it took the...

Re: Less than 24 hours into ownership and problems already

On a happier note, first journey to work in it today, 45 miles, averaged 4.2 KwH. Which I believe is pretty decent? That was with aircon and stereo on for the whole journey. 50% motorway 50% a roads.

Re: Less than 24 hours into ownership and problems already

Thanks a lot!

Dealer has suggested holding down the power button for 30 odd seconds until the system reboots and you get the VW image, to see if that fixes it. If not will need to book in with local dealer.

No it’s the whole display doing this. Just happened to be in CarPlay when I took the photo.

Less than 24 hours into ownership and problems already

Morning guys. New ID.3 Family Pro Performance finally got delivered yesterday afternoon. Came with software 2.1 installed. Took it for a ten minute drive to football and everything was fine. Drove it back afterwards everything fine. Got in this morning and the media screen appears to be broken (assu...

Speed limiter and iphones

Hi. Taken delivery of my family id.3 today. Got a couple of questions please. 1 - I’ve tried setting the speed limit (hit the cruise control button, swiped left, choose speed limiter) and set it to 30mph. Drove off and car let me go above 30 mph. Am I missing something? 2 - I’ve linked the phone but...
