A dolly could also be used on the rear wheels (with flat tire) pulled by a standard tow truck lifting the front of the car.

True, I wonder why my tow guy didn't suggest that, made me wait for flat bed.

Edit :
I forgot, but the reason is they didn't want my front end to drag. The dolly might still cause that.

Q:
I took off without disengaging the parking brake. Did I just burn my brakes?

A:
No, the eGolf will automatically disengage the parking brake if you put enough force on the pedal.

Now, is this wise to never disengage the parking brake because it's automatic? I don't think so, but it is a 'feature'.

This can't happen in an eGolf:

The eGolf will not allow you to engage the transmission so long as the charging cable is still connected.

That is true in just about all EV's. It still will not help if you roll away like you are on a slope.

Car-Net is a subscription item. It is NOT required to subscribe.

They let you have a 3 month trial then afterwards it's $$$$ /month.
Thanks you can do with the app after the trial is over.

See outside Temp
Turn on Climate control (Nice for people who have a little walk to their car after work)
Turn on Defrost (Same thing but home in the morning)
See Battery Level
Start immediate charging.
See where your car is.

-----
That's about it.
The main carnet app comes with many other features including Lock / Unlock and Flash Lights

Convenience Window Closing.

Credit goes to JoulesThief for pointing this out.
And GASP! It's in the manual, Page 61.

Hold your finger on the lock sensor on the outside door handle for a few seconds and all open windows will close.

Too bad there isn't an all windows down 1/2" setting

How to unlock the front door if you cannot do it using the handle.

Manual Page 335
One corner of the latch (The part closest to the rear doors) will 'flip up' and will reveal a key hole.
Use your key to unlock / lock the car manually.
