Re: Used 2016 SEL with DAP enough?

Hi Cowboy! Only you can decide if the range is long enough for your needs. If you drive more than 30-35 miles total each day, I'd recommend you get a car with a range larger than 85 miles. I too drove a 2016 SE for three years doing 15-20 miles a day. The 85 mile range was totally fine for me to use...

Re: Using accessories while charging

Mxplut, check that you have this setting is turned on in your car: Car > e-manager > Settings > Climate control using battery power The Car-Net app has climate control settings which allow you to defrost the windows and warm up the car before you get in, so the heater must be able to work while the ...

Re: Build Thread: Performance e-Golf

Nice work!

Did you cut the vinyl by hand or create patterns? I'd think it'd be difficult to get the lines visually straight since the hubcab isn't flat.

Re: Tips for securely slow charging?

Speaking from personal experience, I strongly recommend against leaving the portable charger in the trunk. You may be OK if you do it occasionally with proper precautions, but it's not a good long-term solution. There's nothing built into the car to accommodate this. When I got my 2016 eGolf, I was ...

Re: eGolf wheel & tire recommendations

Update since my last post above. After installing Michelin CrossClimate+ on the front axle, the average miles per kWh has jumped up a whole mile! From a long term average of 2.7 to now 3.7. I’m baffled as to why, but it has. Nothing else has changed apart from the front tires, so it must be the new...

Re: How range varies with driving speed

Take a look at this thread for experimental numbers for the 2015 eGolf: https://www.myvwegolf.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=927 Here's a graph of the data in the thread which shows that the 2015 eGolf is most efficient at about 18mph, energy usage increases fairly linearly, and going 70mph takes ab...

Re: Charger will not release from charging port 2019 egolf

Check this long thread: http://www.myvwegolf.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=839&hilit=charging+port+locked&start=10#p8571 It's likely that the pin locking the charging handle to the car is stuck. First thing to try: push the handle all the way into the car, then push the yellow "immediate charge" bu...

Re: Leasing 2019 SEL. Residual value?

Don't feel obligated to hold on to the VW loan for the prescribed amount of time (usually 3 - 6 months) before the loan officer told you so. What are they going to do? Once the deal is made, this is your money and your loan. Good luck! I'm going to disagree with you here, Szyszka. If the salesperso...

Re: Charging port Egolf 2015

I edited my post because I've forgotten whether the 2015 Limited edition came with a 3.6kW charger or a 7.2kW. Google seems to tell me that it was a 7.2kW charger but that's not what my faulty memory is telling me. In any event, you need to look at the charging port itself to tell if it's capable of...

Re: Charging port Egolf 2015

As f1geek says, the only way to tell is to look at the charging port once your car arrives. I'm not sure about the 2015 Limited edition that you purchased, but for the 2016 SE the standard charger on those models was a 3.6kW without DC fast charging, and a 7.2 kW charger with DC fast charging was of...
